{food and exercise- 7/6}

Back to tracking calories eaten and burned if I want to start losing closer to two pounds a week.

Here's how today went down:


Toast with reduced fat PB
1/2 grapefruit
1/2 melon *love*

239 calories

Lindsay Brin Shed 5 Fast DVD


Turkey on Orowheat Sandwich thin
with Laughing Cow cheese spread on bread *yum*
1/2 melon *love*

255 calories

Jumped on trampoline with kids, weeded the garden and picked peas.
*all in 30 minutes or so before we were too hot and went inside*
Wore my heart rate monitor watch, which is oh so bulky on my wrist.
Doesn't look so "unisex" on my wrist. meh. But it works...

Not bad for playing with the kids

Afternoon Snack 

Sugar snap peas from our garden! *mmm*
String Cheese
Special K multi-grain crackers

I wound up sharing some of this with my kiddos, I can give them the exact same thing, but it always tastes better coming out of my bowl.

118 calories...
I did not plan to eat the exact same amount of calories I burned right before my afternoon snack, just worked out that way. ha.


Salad with Wishbone Ranch Spritzer

393 calories

Evening snack

Chocolate graham cracker with PB
1/2 cup melon
A few pretzels

127 calories

Ran 1.5 miles

Total Calories: 1132
Total Calories Burned: 500

Net Calories: 632

I can't get enough melon, which is good since I better eat it up before it goes to waste! I'm running my first 5k with a friend next Saturday and I've got a lot of work to do before it! Still not a lot endurance.


  1. I love your watch, where did you get it? I want something easy that will track my calories even if it is just working in the garden :) Good Luck on your weight loss, you are doing GREAT, such an inspiration :)
