The mystery of the Disappearing Shoe saga continues today. Still is nowhere to be found! So this morning involved going to the in-laws house (where we used to live) to find an old pair of gym shoes. I found 2 pairs...a 7.5 and an 8.5...guess what size I am??? Yeah, that would be an 8. Go figure. So I went with the pair that was too big and tied them super tight. It worked out ok for what I needed them for today.
So this morning I was very excited to report a 195.4 on the scale. Especially with TOM around, this number is still trending in the right direction. I haven't seen anything lower than that for way too long! I am really excited to be farther away from the 200s these days. I can't wait until I just never see that number again (sometimes it pops up after a bad few days of extra sodium). Anyway, I woke up super pumped to do this challenge. There is just something about doing a challenge with other people that keeps me more motivated. Yesterday I posted my goals for the Healthier Me in 33 challenge. Today I managed to convince the hubby that we really needed to get out of the house. Our 2 year old is too in love with the television these days, so I really wanted to do something out of the house. So we loaded the kids up (just the younger 2 today) and headed to the inlaws (because I HAD to have shoes!). By their house is a great path beside the lake and a great park, so we took the long way around to get to the park. All in all I walked about an hour. And at a good pace, not some liesurely walk. And there were hills. Several of them. I was pushing the stroller. I felt like I got a great workout in with that walk. I wish I could run, but the doc recommended not yet, so walking it is! I will begin running again once my knees don't hurt. So I count this as one of my cardio goals. :)
Food was pretty good today. I did have 2 healthy eats, breakfast and dinner. I am not too sure about lunch as it was provided my mother in law. She made turkey chili and I had about a cup and a half. It was pretty yummy. I ended up having too much cheese during that meal, making my calories pretty high for lunch, but I still think I did pretty well! We also had my grandpa's 80th birthday and their 60th wedding anniversary party to go to. I had one very small piece of cake there. Nothing overboard. So I am feeling pretty good about myself! As soon as I am done here, I am off to work on my knitting project :) I am almost done with this blanket that I have been working on for about 6 months now. I can't wait to finish it and start working on the one for my little man!
