Hey All –
I am happy to report that I woke up early again today! I was up at 6:30 and I enjoyed the coffee I had prepared the night before (I love my coffee maker’s auto brew feature!) and read the paper for a few minutes before starting my day.
I really was not hungry right when I woke up, so I had my bagel and peanut butter at work at 8:15 this morning. Yet again, I was without a camera, but today I took a [lame] picture of the bagel with my phone’s camera…
I was curious to see how long the bagel would keep me going this morning, because I was not sure when I would have time for lunch. It definitely did the trick, and I had lunch around 12:45 after a nice twenty minute walk outside.
For lunch I had some of the turkey (left over from last night), grilled red peppers, carrots and a small soup (chicken florentine, 8 ounces @ 166 calories) from Au Bon Pain. I added the turkey into the soup! The lunch was perfect and I did not have an afternoon snack until I was headed home, and I enjoyed [a little less than] half of a Cliff Zbar.
Once I got home from work I walked to the Newtonville Camera shop where I talked to a man about getting a new camera. Today I purchased a new Olympus FE-370 and so far I love it. I walked back home very pleased with my purchase.
After getting home, I changed into my spring time running clothes – shorts, a tank top and a long sleeve tee-shirt. I ran four miles and burned over 500 calories! The hills in my neighborhood are killer… but it was a good outing. Because of my soar legs the last time I did the hills, I took two breaks in the middle of the outing to stretch my legs…. I’m hoping I will feel a difference tomorrow morning. After the run, I cooled down by walking for five minutes and then stretched again.
I had six or seven whole wheat crackers and 16 ounces of water when I first got home, and soon after I started making dinner.
Tonight I enjoyed another whole wheat wrap – but this time with a Dr. Praeger’s Tex Mex veggie burger (I love these things!) along with salsa, sour cream, lettuce, grilled red peppers and light cheese. I also had a glass of skim milk to get some more protein in my system. Here are a couple of pictures with my new camera!
It might just be me, but I can see a huge improvement with the new camera! I LOVE IT! It is so awesome.
I am hungry right now… and I might enjoy a Vitamuffin top in a few minutes, but I’m not sure. I have to make sure to get to bed early tonight so that I can wake up at my new “normal time” to have a nice morning before heading off to work.
See ya’ll tomorrow!
