Spring Forward

As we all know spring forward took effect Sunday AM.  Today has been my first day off since then therefore it is my personal spring forward.

I slept in till I woke up naturally at 9:17am.  Then I fiddled around on the computer surfing blogs for quite a while. Picked up B from VPK and naturally headed to Target (wha? it's a mile away from the VPK) I needed to walk out my foot soreness- yeah, yeah thats it!  Walked around the store some and picked up a few small food stuffs. I found a bowl type dial scale food scale on clearance that I debated with myself about. Hubby has mentioned wanting one but I told him we had one. He has told me before if we do he cannot find it. I thought about the fact that although I may be eating within my personal goals (low carb/ high protein) that I am sure my portions are to large. I really have no idea the amount of calories that I eat in a day. Hubby has been after me for a while to track just to see what it says. But to accurately track you have to weigh your food I would think. Sooo it made it into my cart. 

I ate a late lunch when I got home of something that fits into my plan buuuuut I am not quite proud of. At about 7pm I decided that I HAD to get some movement in but I didn't want to use the treadmill or go outside. Enter Leslie Sansone- I knew some of her videos were on youtube so I googled up a 2 mile walk
I used the heart rate monitor on the Garmin 110 but I haven't DL'ed the info yet. I went in planning on the whole two miles. At mile one I stopped for a min and was like dude I don't want to do this I am DONE. But then I saw there were only 17 minutes left and I figured I got this.  After my walk I went straight into dinner prep. I had lots of potentials to make but no plan. After a brief discussion with hubby, Greek salads were chosen. I chose this opportunity to play with measuring everything.  After dinner I logged it all into one site but then ended up transferring it all to myfitnesspal.  My user name is theswaninme if you want to look me up.

I ordered my ID band with 4 lines of motivation. I am going to wait to share them until I physically have the band though. I used my earndit $10 GC AND I googled up a code for 15% off so that was pretty sweet.


  1. I love MyFitnessPal, BUT I came across the fact that my gym, Anytime Fitness, has a site---and it rocks! So I think I'm switching over there for a little while to see how it goes. We'll see.... May be back to MFP soon.


  2. I love MFP! I am Chris1020... I have a $10 earndit for and ID band too, I keep meaning to order one. a 15% off coupon would be good too, I'll have to try to find it.
