2. Goal weight: 135-140 lbs
3. Follow Simple Nutrition rules
4. Eat vegetarian for 2 days per week
5. Kids in bed by 8:00, so I can have time to myself and then be in bed by 10:00

lunch: leftover lentil casserole, slice of flax bread, apple
snack: plain yogurt with blueberries and cherries
dinner: turkey meatloaf with mashed cauli/taters, applesauce

Default Day 4

"So now I'm driving in my car, I used to be able to walk this far,
now I turn on the light, I used to be able to sleep at night,
I'm cooking with microwaves to warm up food that's not seen the soil,
plugged into my TV, I'm used to the lies they're telling me..."

Driven Out, by The Fixx

Looks like a great workout! Are you eating less meat these days? Lentil casserole, yummm. (Oddly enough, lentil soup is comfort food to me, we ate it so much in my childhood).

Yep, I've been eating less meat in general, and one of my goals this contest is to eat vegetarian 2 full days per week. I love the particular recipe I have been using for lentil casserole - it has lentils, brown basmati rice and spinach. Yum!

Default Day 6

"Life is short, you're capable"

What You Waiting For?, by Gwen Stefani


On Saturdays I am continuing to run 3-5 miles because I am running a 5K race later this month. I was all ready to go running outside this morning, and then I opened up my door...and it was raining.

Soooo....I went to the gym and ran 5K on the treadmill. Wearing my running tights. I don't mind wearing them outside and people just pass me by, but on the treadmill I felt like people were staring at my rear end the whole time. Those running tights don't hide anything, lol.

Today's Menu

breakfast/post workout: 1 scoop whey, granola bar
lunch: turkey sub sandwich on wheat
snack(s): banana, almonds, cashew butter on a wasa cracker
dinner: tuna melt on flax bread, vegetable soup

If they wanna look, let them. ;-) I know I love my compression shorts for running and powerwalking. I think I'm finally getting over the "I can't believe I'm wearing 'spandex'" complex and worrying if my hips look gianormous in them. They don't pull or shift and I don't chafe. I wish I'd gotten 'round to wearing them eons ago. :-)

Congrats on what looks like it was a great day for you!

-Jen
