Productive day today, and better than yesterday, self-improvement-wise.
I spent the day (8am - 4pm) on the firearms range, so lots of physical exercise today!! Because I was outside most of the day, I tried to keep my water intake up, and I had 10 glasses.
In addition to the day, I did my sit-ups and I did my free weights. I have been doing a piddly little 5-lb weight, and I moved up to a 10-lb weight tonight. I did my regular routine, and I added some calf raises. I want to work back up to 20 and 25 lb weights, which is what I used to use. I was being sissy with the 5-lb weights, but I wanted to use something easy to get back into the routine before moving up. So I'm up to 10 lbs now, and will keep working my way toward my goal.
I forced myself to have breakfast this morning, even though I wasn't hungry AT all. (Too early!) I had my regular organic oatmeal with rice milk. I only had one cup of coffee, which I took with me in a commuter mug. I didn't get a chance for a real lunch, so I grazed on a handful of Wheat Thins and a few pieces of fruit. I DID also drink three small cups of coffee (black, with sugar) while sitting through endless Powerpoint classes this morning. Finally, for dinner, I stopped off at a local restaurant that I hadn't tried yet, and I had sushi for dinner. A spider roll and 2 pieces each of unagi and tako sushi. SO GOOD!!! I also had two cups of green tea, unsweetened.
Took my multi-vitamin with a swig of soymilk.
I am giving myself a B+ today. I should have anticipated not getting lunch and have packed one, but between being disorganized and a bit lazy, I didn't, so I was at the mercy of what was available. I could have just had a spider roll and not had the "a la carte" pieces, and I drank too much coffee. BUT, I also worked out and kept up a moderate level of exercise for about seven hours today, and still took the time to do my free weights AND add a leg exercise, as well as do sit-ups tonight.
