This morning, I quickly went on a 1.5 mile run. I was done in 15 minutes, then Celina joined me for an eight mile bike ride. We got caught in the rain this morning while a little over half way home. It made for a very wet ride! We were drenched.
I made another new cookie from Pinterest. This one is oatmeal-coconut. It was good too, I just need to add raisins, chocolate chips maybe nuts or some dried fruit.
I'm still on my diet, Day 82. I'm kind of stuck right now at not really losing weight. I really have no idea if I am or not, but if I am losing weight its not enough to drop inches on my body. I can tell my clothes are fitting a lot looser. It must be working to just cut back on calories. I've been trying to stay around 1000 - 1500 each day and surprise, surprise its been pretty easy to do. The only reason its been easy is because I really like what I eat every day. I am loving my whole wheat bread with honey PB and chunky Pb, then for a snack I'll have a banana, raspberries, blueberries and watermelon. I also eat lots of low cal popcorn either sea salt or white cheese. Dinner and some lunches I have my spicy tortilla soup and a baked in the oven sweet potato. I cook up the soup and sweet potatoes ahead of time so all I have to do is warm them up when I'm hungry. When I'm hungry for something sweet, I'll have a small tablespoon of my honey peanut butter or a strawberry Greek yogurt with some fruit. I can eat a lot and still be around 1500 calories or less for the day.
I try to take an hour nap each day or at least a 30 minute power nap. I get up super early so I need some afternoon sleep.
I have been burning around 1000 calories per day with biking, running and working. I keep thinking I need to add in some afternoon or evening biking/running or tennis. I'm slowly getting there. I just need to get more motivated. I'm so not an afternoon-evening person. If it doesn't happen in the morning exercise, work, cleaning our house, then its not going to happen later on.
This is how Zoey and I spend our afternoons, on the couch just
