I met with a trainer on Saturday morning. It was a good meeting. He was very helpful in giving me suggestions to make my treadmill walk more effective. He also showed me around the circuit training room and suggested that I try the circuit a few days a week in addition to my treadmill walk. After our meeting I did my walk and tried the things he suggested. One was to increase the incline of the "rolling hills" setting. With this setting the treadmill automatically inclines and declines every few minutes. I simply pushed the button each time to make it incline just a little bit more. The other thing he suggested was to increase the speed for short intervals. I normally walk at 3.5 mph. This time I walked at 3.5 or 5 minutes and 3.7-4.0 for five minutes throughout the walk. I was sweating like crazy at the end of the time!
I had a light breakfast an hour or so before I went to the gym. I had a peach and a half cup of Fage 0% Greek yogurt.
Lunch was sort of a brunch that I threw together in a hurry after coming home from the gym and before heading out for my "Knit Together" group. (I meet with some ladies from my church and we knit or, in my case, crochet. I make "chemo caps" for donation to cancer patients)
Omelet with veggies and fat free cheese and a mango chicken sausage. I ate a piece of reduced fat string cheese while I was cooking as well.
Dinner was pizza. I found this "Western bagel Alternative Pita" bread at the store and decided to give it a try. Each pita is 1 point. I split it into 2 pieces and then used the same toppings that I normally use on one large tortilla. I simply put half on each piece of pita. This was good but the tortilla holds the toppings better without getting soggy in the middle. I was hungry so while this was in the oven I nuked some broccoli and munched on it while waiting for my dinner to cook. It was so funny...I was texting back and forth with my son while I was doing all of this and, at one point I said to him, "OMG, I have lost my mind! I am munching on steamed . salted broccoli and it tastes like the BEST THING EVER!"...lol
After dinner I snacked on popcorn. I also had some frozen yogurt but forget to take a photo.
