Better and better...a little progress each day.

Today's food consumption: one banana and 2 cups of coffee for breakfast, a big bowl of oatmeal with rice milk for lunch, snacked on 1/2 mini-loaf of artisan bread and a mini-carrot while I was chopping up produce for the bunnies, and had a big salad for dinner. Oh, and one cough drop!!

Finished off my 8 glasses of water, did my sit-ups and push-ups, and I managed an hour on the treadmill!! Yes, the hen is back up and running (or waddling, as the case may be)!! I watched "Marty" on AMC - no commercials, so no time to look at the clock and think about how I couldn't go another "x" minutes. I was going to just do 30, then decided on 40, then figured, well, if 40, then I should do 45, and after that it just seemed too wimpy to quit with only 15 minutes left!

Will take my multi-vitamin before bed tonight.

So, given that I'm not 100% yet, I think I did pretty well. I am giving myself a B+. I could have done the free weights, if I had used my "up" time more wisely, and I could have not have had that bread (although it WAS really good), or have had a quarter of the loaf, rather than a half. (But it was REALLY good.) And I have been wearing the same pair of sweat pants for, oh, about a week now? But I didn't have a lot of energy, and I was down and sleeping a lot today, so I think I got most of what I wanted to accomplish done when I had the chutzpah to do it!

    Glad to hear you are starting to feel better!! That's the way to kick those antibiotics in the butt!

    Yeah for you! Ease back into it, and a B+ seems like a low score for the day, since you are coming off of illness! Sounds like you did great for the day!

    Thanks!! I try to rate myself based, in part, on what a perfect self-esteem/work-out/diet day should be. So while I take being sick into account, I try not to base each rating on what I could do THAT day, but instead more on what I could do on an IDEAL day.
