Boot Camp - Day 2

Menu of the day:
Breakfast: 2 slices of whole wheat toast with natural peanut butter and jam, and 1 cup of milk
Snack: apple with five almonds
Lunch: 2 oz leftover pork with 3 cups salad
Snack: 2 slices of cheese with 11 wheat thin crackers and 1 cup of milk
Supper: Steak sandwich - 3oz steak, 1 slice of homemade multi-grain bread, raw carrots and steamed broccoli.
Snack: 3 cups popcorn, milk.

In order to increase my level of activity I consciously suggested playing outside with Sierra this morning which we did for an hour. While not being overly vigorous activity it was still more than if we sat and played inside. Later I got in another 20 minute walk with a friend.way I can add movement to my days will help. My workout today consisted of a 20 minute TaeBo ab DVD (any muscles I once had in that area are completely gone, I nearly died doing this) and 40 minutes of upper body weights.

I feel good.

The motivation is on!

Good for you Carla! I'm totally interested to read about your progress. I decided to get my butt in gear 5 weeks ago and I began running! I'm doing interval training, each week increasing my running and decreasing my walking. I can't believe how much my body can endure now! I've lost an inch off my waist and 1/2 inch of each my thighs already. I'm totally motivated to keep going!! Although, I'm definitely going to be watching what you eat so I can get some tips.

My biggest challenge with diet is coming up with healthy, satisfying snacks. Meals are no problem it's the snacks!

Keep going! I can never seem to find the time to exercise like I should. A walk with the dog around the block doesn't really count. Good for you.
