Saturday September 7, 2013

This was a good day. I started the day with my usual coffee and then a 6.26 mile walk/run. It was hot and muggy out there!

I had a smoothie for breakfast as I dashed out the door to run errands and visit my mom and my sister. 

Time flew while I was at my mom's and before I knew it, it was almost 4:00. So much for lunch!

I still had to go to the grocery store as I was out of any fresh fruits and veggies. So off to the store I went. I was now hungry and oh-so-tempted to get something fast! But I held out and filled my cart with fresh veggies and thought about how good they would taste when I roasted them! 

When I got home,as I was putting things away, a banana split open when I was breaking them apart to fit in the fruit basket...must be a sign that I need to eat that!! So the banana took the edge off my hunger while I finished putting things away and getting the veggies ready to roast. I wish I would have taken photos! I roasted cabbage, rutabagas, eggplant, zuchini & yellow squash, onions, and cauliflower. It was a sight to behold! I also washed and cut two bunches of red and green leaf lettuce for my salads and put it in the fridge to crisp up. 

When the veggies came out of the oven, I put some on a plate and added some shredded fat free cheese and a half a cup of black beans. I sprinkled the whole thing with taco seasoning.! Food nirvana!!

Night time snack was chia pudding with frozen strawberries. Yummy stuff!

We started a new motivational thing at Weight Watchers. It's called "I'm a 10" and it's a challenge to reach a goal of losing 10% of your body weight by November 30th. That comes out to 18 pounds for me, 1.4 pounds per week. That's rather a lot for me to expect to lose on a consistent basis but I'm going to give it my best shot. I'd really love to be at a significantly lower weight for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend in January. 

So there we go. That was my day. 
Here's my tracker for Saturday:
