A Longer walk

Friday, October 24, 2014

Today I walked 3.6 miles at lunch time. When I leave work, I plan on walking another .6 mile to the bus stop. I don't know if we will be walking this evening. My husband's sister and brother-in-law are coming over. And of course my mom and grandson will be coming too. My husband says he is going to fry some fish. We bought this big two pack of olive oil sometime ago and I guess my husband is itching to use it. He says he is going to use the deep fryer. Hopefully his sister and brother-in-law will get to our house before my husband starts his fish frying. I think he is going to need some help. emoticon When I asked my husband what he was cooking to go with it, he says he asked his sister to bring a salad and he thought I would want french fries. I told him no french fries for me. Tomorrow is weigh in day for the 5% challenge. Have a good weekend everyone! emoticon

    Fried fish sounds yummy. Be careful frying with olive oil. It has a low smoke point.

Today I walked with the group at work. We walked 1.3 miles. A couple of hours later, I took my regular 2.3 mile walk. I may not be walking this evening because we have Bible Study. I'm not sure yet. But I needed to get my miles in just in case.

    I'm in the same boat. Fitness is going great but I find myself mindlessly eating whatever is nearby :D
We've got this though! We're strong! emoticon

Burned Several Calories Today

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Today I walked with the group at work. This time there were more people and they walked faster. We walked about 1.4 miles. I didn't feel like going out again so I walked half a mile to the bus stop after work. Of course that meant I missed my bus but another one came 6 minutes later. When I got home, my husband and I walked 2.6 miles. I also ran in place for another mile while watching TV. My fitbit says I walked 7.2 miles and 15,801 steps. I burned a lot of extra calories, unfortunately, I also ate a little too much today. I will do much better tomorrow. emoticon

    Thanks Ladies! Roxyzmom, I have participated in a few 5k walks and a few 6.1 mile walks. It was really fun. Lizzie, I googled it. I can eat the broccoli, oranges, and walnuts. I was already eating walnuts, but I thought they were too high in calories, so I stopped eating them. I also saw a recipe for oatmeal cookies to increase my intake of oats. Thanks! emoticon

    You're doing great on your activity. Maybe you should try super foods to help you stay full longer and continue to drop the pounds. If you Google super foods OR power foods, you'll get a list of websites that explain the magic in these foods.

    I think you could walk a 10 miler or a 10k. Are there any in your area?

Today was our off day from work. We took our car in for a routine oil change and maintenance check up at 7 am. When we got home, my husband decided he wanted to mow the lawn. I actually mowed it, as usual. He did the edging. Then we went to the pharmacy to pick up some medicine. Afterwards, we finally went to his mom's house to fix her computer. We were there for less than an hour. Then we went to a friends house to fix her computer and we were there for about 3 hours. She had a really bad virus. My husband's shoulder is still hurting so I had to do all the driving until night fall. He decided he should drive when it got dark. We didn't make it home until after 8 pm. It was a long day. I didn't go down much on the scale this week. But any amount is good. As long as I keep moving in the right direction. emoticon
