Part 2 Days 8, 9 and 10

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Tomorrow is the last day of my 2nd rise and shine challenge and being Sunday (Easter Sunday at that) we will rise early and head to church so exercise and breakfast will have to wait for later in the day but both will get done.

Today is my usual morning walk and shredded wheat cereal with yummy blackberries for breakfast.

Happy Easter, my friends!

Part 2 Day 6 & 7

Thursday, April 17, 2014

I missed posting yesterday but am continuing my 2nd rise and shine challenge.

I start the day with a morning walk and am aiming to increase my time each day to get up to an hour's exercise to start the day.

The second part of the challenge is to eat a healthy breakfast and for the most part I stick to the same breakfast for a week or so. This week it is a slice of whole grain bread with some kind of protein (peanut butter, ham, chicken - whatever I have in the fridge) and I always have a half of banana with it.

Part 2 Day 5

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

This 2nd rise and shine challenge is flying by as did the first one!

Today's healthy breakfast was a half banana, and my mini chicken sandwich on whole grain bread, 2 oz. chicken and half slice of cheese.

My first walk ended up at 55 minutes but since then I have finished 20 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes of gardening. Another short walk this afternoon will being me to my minimum 120 minutes.

I did over 16,000 steps yesterday so I am aiming for 17,000 today!

Part 2 Day 4

Monday, April 14, 2014

Today brings me back on the right track!

A great early morning walk and a bike ride. Have also done some gardening so only about 15 minutes left today to reach my 120 minutes.

Breakfast was my Elvis treat which is still healthy. A slice of whole wheat toast, 1 T peanut butter and a half banana.

    I did dancing this morning to Abba again. There is something about that music that makes me start moving!

Part 2 Day 3

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Third day of my 2nd rise and shine challenge is not good. There was no healthy breakfast today. We stopped at an old favorite restaurant after church that has a breakfast buffet and I ate it all! Bacon, sausage gravy and home fries - the works. I did somewhat control my portions and also had some fruit with it. I just put everything in the tracker and I can still stay in range for the day although I had enough fat at breakfast to put me at the high end of my range for the day. So lunch is a little fruit - not that I can even imagine being hungry and dinner is a big salad with some chicken and low fat dressing.

No exercise yet but that is normal for a Sunday. I'll get a walk in and lots of time on the stationary bike before this day is over!

    I love the way that you adjust your eating plan to accommodate an occasional indulgence ! Way to go!
