Today I definitely felt a lot better! Tomorrow is when I’ll get the run in though with C25K.
Workout today: I ended up walking on the new under the desk treadmill I bought on Amazon. https://amzn.to/3TjkOB7 What I love is that you control the treadmill with either the app or the remote. This is at an incline, since that is how it is built, so if you aren’t wanting to walk at an incline, another under the desk treadmill would be best to look at. I then went for a walk around the driveway several times with my better half, who was trying to be mobile since he had knee surgery earlier this week.
Weigh In: 158.6
This time last week: 159.3
Breakfast: Coffee with creamer.
Lunch: Whole wheat pita bread with homemade pasta sauce, banana peppers, mushrooms, pepperoni and cheese.
Dinner: Macaroni and cheese with kielbasa, homemade meatballs from the other night and buffalo sauce drizzled on top.
A few things I’m still keeping an eye out on:
- Amount of sugar in a serving – if it’s more than 4g, I am being cautious
- Amount of protein in a serving – I’m aiming for at least 20g of protein per serving each meal
- Amount of fiber in a serving – I’m doing my best to aim for 20g of fiber each day, but that sure can be difficult!
- If I have a sweet tooth craving, I turn on the keurig and add creamer to my cup of coffee
