After dreading Tuesday's run, it actually went well. I have been just stopping after an hour or 7 miles. In my pre-baby life, I would always be motivated to go on for as long as I had. Yesterday I reached the 7 mile mark and kept on going - I made it to 8 miles. It was a good feeling! Today I had a nice swim - I've been able to get there earlier and stay a little bit later and finish 3650 yds the last 2 swims- it has been going well!
I've been keeping the food log which is really helpful to me and really helps me to stay accountable. I switched from fitday.com to sparkpeople. Since I'm still nursing I'm using babyfit. It is a decent site so far (just switched). Some days I find 2000 calories is way too little, so I have to keep eating. I'm not restricting just trying to listen to my signals here. I've lost 2 pounds now total from eating clean and logging. Today I am just major craving some warm chocolate chip cookies or muffins or something. I think that means I need to eat more so I don't have these cravings!! Below are some eat-clean meatballs made with TVP and grilled veggies.
What scares me - I could get into this being at home thing alot of the time. I hope that a part-time teaching job comes up where I can keep my job in the district but be home 3 of the days or something like that. I've been keeping busy and thinking of ideas for things to sell - tempo bars, baby schedule logs - hmmm. I just need to follow through on these ideas.
Nuun- geesh. I tried Nuun and it tasted like AIRBORNE to me? Should I give it another try? I have to review it and I feel bad about it! What do you like about Nuun?
That's about it. I leave you with this picture of Nick. Villanova is where Bill and I met.
1) WHAT is the difference between a food processor and the VITA mix?
2) Has anyone ever taken a book to be bound into something fun?
I want to make a baby eat/diaper etc log - I have a vision, but I have to see where to go from there.
3) Are veggies unlimited? They used to be for me - and really, they are so good for you! But I just realized that sweet potatoes are pretty high in those calories!! Do you limit your veggies?
