Day 8 - 9/14 Fitness Goals

Changing around the titling of the fitness goals. I can never remember what day I'm on, & I think it's more logical to title these by date. :-)

Weight - 158.8 Woo! Feel like I'm finally making progress. Next big milestone goal is 153. That was my weight when I got pregnant with baby #2 (unexpectedly, when my first child was still an infant).

  • Coffee with milk - 25
  • Homemade English muffin (190) + 1/2 a laughing cow (20) + a Morningstar sausage patty (80) - 290
  • 1 cup Honeydew - 60
  • 1 piece of cheese - 90
  • Small serving of rice & 1 small piece of chicken - 275
  • 1 pear - 90
  • 1 chocolate milk - 160
  • Pluot - 40
  • 1/2 tomato - 20
Loobia polo with yogurt - 400

Total calories = 1555. Over my target. I feel good about my choice today, and think of 1400 as a range. I like to see the calories between 1400 & 1500, but as long as I'm losing weight consistently & making good choices, I'm happy.

Fruit 3/vegetables 2

I'm not counting this as one of my 150 workouts for 2010, but I went on a 30ish minute bike ride with the kids. My boys are 3 & 4, so it was a lot of stopping & starting. :-)


  1. Hi - I just discovered your blog from TGP. I have to say that I really admire what you are putting out there via your fitness and finances. I'm right there with you. We're trying to get out of debt and I'm trying to lose my baby weight (I just had a baby three months ago). I look forward to reading about you - check out my blog too - I post my weight loss on Mondays, Gardens on Tuesdays, and basic life/mothering on the other days.

    PS - I'm a Seattle native too - we just recently moved from our beloved Seattle down to Salem, OR. So far, we really enjoy it here, but miss WA!

  2. Thanks! I need the accountability, I've determined. :-)
    Off to check out your blog.
    PS - I do love Oregon, but Seattle is fabulous.
