Hooray! I completed Week One of the C25K program. It feels good and I can't wait to start on next week. I also lost 2 lbs last week so that's a plus too. (like how I just slipped that in there all nonchalantly like I'm not totally squealing about it in real life?)
Yesterday, my mom and dad came a visitin' and took us out to Mimi's for brunch (it was around 11 which is when we usually eat lunch anyway). I got the Breakfast Chiabatta, which was really good, but holy crap is it HIGH in calories. The sandwich as is, is 944. I got it without cheese and the sauce they put on it -- I figure it made it at least 100 calories less but still. I only ate half of it. (I didn't know how bad it was until I got home and looked it up.) Mimi's Cafe serves you a TON of food. I used to be able to hork an entire breakfast. I pretty much only ate half -- half the sandwich, half the potatoes, half the muffin, and I gave my juice to 3ft.
I did a lot of walking yesterday as a visit from the 'rents always involves a lot of shopping which 3ft LOVES because he always gets new clothes, a toy, and other things that a boy of five couldn't possibly live without. So I didn't have quite a slothful day but I still worked out last night. After I got Mr. Grumpybutt in bed, I left my husband and 3ft to fend for themselves and headed over to the gym. I worked out on the elliptical for 33 minutes rocking out to music then wandered home.
That was pretty much my day yesterday. I'm still nursing a blistered toe. Band aids help but I still say my magic shoes leave a lot to be desired since they caused the blister initially. It's not too bad *sob* I suffer through it -- that's how dedicated I am.
I also got peaches, mangoes, and a pineapple yesterday. I'm going to chop, dice, and cut them up and freeze some to make different combination sorbets. I'm totally stoked. I love tropical fruit -- although I don't think peaches count for tropical, come to think of it. OH!!! I also found a mini fluted muffin pan yesterday to make individual angel food cakes. I'm totally stoked and instead of berries I'm going to try it with my new fruit as toppings.
