Square Life Round World

I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

Back on Track–Day 2

on June 24, 2013

Day 2 of getting back on track is in the books. It was overall a successful day but there were some hiccups. My first big fail was getting out of bed. The alarm was set for 5 but I apparently kept hitting snooze until I finally realized what was going on around 5:30. I stayed in bed until 6 so no morning workout for me. My next big fail was stepping in the scale. Yep, I just couldn’t stay away. I won’t reveal the results but I will say it’s going in the right direction. Here’s how the rest of the day went.

I was able to get my 30 minute total body workout in after work so I’m glad I was able to recover from staying in bed too late. Calories burned = 173.

I took in 60 ounces of water throughout the day and 20 ounces of a zero calorie electrolyte beverage before my workout.

Breakfast was coffee with half and half (40 calories), a peach soy shake made with a farmer’s market peach (131 calories), and a Luna bar (190 calories). I actually saved the Luna bar for a mid-morning snack. The soy milk in the shake had protein so I felt like I could save it for later. That was a good move.

Lunch was turkey and cheddar on wheat with Dijon mustard (225 calories), and another roasted beet and goat cheese salad (190 calories).

I had an afternoon snack of cheese (70 calories) and an apple (95 calories).

Again I took the easy way out for dinner with another Weight Watchers frozen entree (290 calories), 2 cups of steamed green beans (70 calories), a farmer’s market plum (30 calories), and 2 mixed berry Newtons (100 calories).

Calorie grand total was 1431 minus 173 for the workout for a net of 1258.

I was able to stick to my plan today despite my rocky start. I’m feeling good about getting back on track. I was not hungry at all and had plenty of energy for my afternoon workout. I’ll get a do-over tomorrow on getting up early. Tomorrow is a running day and the morning is the best time for me to do it during the summer. I have a new running skirt to wear so hopefully that will give me a little extra motivation.

What are your goals for the fall season?
