The long and winding road to fitness, day 16

I hope everyone had a great holiday today.  I had to work, but it wasn’t bad.  We only had a few people working (it was a short day, closed at 6 instead of 9), but everyone had fun and got a lot of work done at the same time…nice.

I had a really good eating day, ended up eating 9 servings of fruits and veggies, more veggies than fruit (unusual for me) with my grilled veggies for dinner.

I had Patty pan squash, baby zucchini, mushrooms, sweet potato fries and a peach.  It was so delicious!!  I just may have the same thing tomorrow.

I ended the day with 1717 calories and 30 minutes of cardio (bike and walking) along with upper body strength training, 8 exercises, 2 sets of each.  One good thing about working on a holiday, I can usually manage to get in my exercise and eat fairly well whereas I’d likely eat a lot of higher calorie foods if I celebrated with friends or family.  See, there is always something positive about most situations.

So, how did everyone else do today?  Did you do anything exciting today?

  1. YUMMY!!!! ≧^◡^≦

  2. Oh man, that looks so good!

    Typically, I’d be ashamed to admit I did nothing, except for the basics, all day. Oh well, it is a holiday. Glad you had a great day!

  3. You had a great day! I had 1350 calories, but that was ok with as many trips as I made up and down the stairs doing laundry, tackling the ironing pile so it isn’t so scary now, and did a little pruning in the garden–before the t-storm. My neighbor gave us some cucumbers, I ate one while making dinner and put another in our salads. Yum! I love those sweet potato fries you had for dinner.

  4. those veges look yummy!

  5. Your vegetable plate looks delicious. I’ve tried quinoa again and I’m liking it more each time.

    I found a sweet treat to satisfy my chocolate craving. I hope it’s not lying about the calorie count. Its a large chocolate bar by Godiva Chocolatier. It’s divided into 10 thin blocks. I chose dark chocolate with almonds. One serving is 4 blocks, but I eat only 1 block, which is 60 calories and only 2.5 grams of sugar. Does that seem reasonable or am I kidding myself? It’s such a delight at the end of a meal. I am a chocolate lover. 🙂
