  1. 03/10/2009 - P.H.A.T. Chick Journal

    An okay day. I had a banana for breakfast, along with my two cups of coffee. (From this point forward, two cups of coffee should be presumed, unless I mention otherwise. )

    I didn't do as well on water as I should. I had three glasses today. Kind of forgot about it, after my morning routine, and now I'm getting ready to go to bed, so I don't feel like chugging down another five glasses!

    I missed lunch, and when I tried to eat an early dinner at a coffee ...

    I did pretty well today. I walked 30 minutes on the treadmill, did my sit-ups, my push-ups, and my free weights. I also drank closer to 10 glasses of water today, as I drank 4 before leaving for work, sipped on water all day AT work, then drank another 2-3 glasses when I got home.

    I had oatmeal and a carrot for breakfast. Two cups of coffee. Lunch was 3/4 of an apple, a granola bar, a banana, and a baked sweet potato. Dinner was sushi. It was supposed to be salad, but ...
  3. A week on the ranch (March 2, 2009 - March 8, 2009)

    This has been a week for knitting!! I attended two different knitting classes, and learned how to knit "mosaic" and refreshed my self-taught knowledge on how to knit cables. This resulted in a flurry of creativity, and now I'm imagining all sorts of places I can take these new talents!

    It started out as a wet and stormy week. March lived up to its promise and came in like a lion and a half. Storm, storm, storm, rain running across the driveway like a river, animals ...

    I've decided to give myself the weekends off from exercising, although I did do sit-ups today. Just too much other stuff to catch up on. If I decide to go for a run or use the treadmill, great, but if I decide to get chores done instead, I am not going to kick myself over it.

    Meal-wise, I was never in the mood to cook, probably because I was in and out of the house all day. So rather than eating a meal, I just snacked all day. In the morning and afternoon, I had a banana, three ...

    Well, tomorrow is weigh in day, and I am optimistic that I at least maintained my weight this week. We shall see, though. I've been unpleasantly surprised before, and it could happen again. It would be great to have made my one-pound goal, but I just don't have that much energy this week, so I haven't burned off many calories.

    Today, I had oatmeal for breakfast, a handful of peanuts for a snack, and a really big salad for supper. My appetite is still not great, and the drugs don't ...
