Playing Catch Up

I spent a large portion of time today going through a lot of the blogs I follow and am still only about half way caught up. I am hoping to get further tomorrow, although we will see what the day holds.

I would like to take a moment to thank Fitcetera for linking to my site yesterday! Her blog and attitude are both great and I am honoured that she deemed my journey worthy of attention. Thanks so much for the shout out!

Also, from what I have seen so far, it appears that most people were pretty good when it came to surviving Halloween. Way to go, everyone; I am proud of you all! The candy just didn't seem as sweet as it did in the past, did it?

I am so happy to be making my way back into the loop. I was really itching to read the blogs that I follow and I am feeling better now that I have made my way through a bunch. I find that reading daily helps to inspire me and keeps me feeling connected to a group of individuals who are on very similar paths. I have missed that the last couple of weeks!

- 10 glasses of water throughout the day
- 2 1/2 cups Caesar salad with light dressing, croutons, and Parmesan
- 1 banana
- 3 cups of spinach salad with sliced deli turkey, grated cheese, dried cranberries, and an olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing
- 6 inch sub on whole wheat bun with ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato, green pepper, onion, black olives, light mayonnaise, mustard, and pepper
- 1 mug of gingerbread steamed soy milk
- 1 Mandarin orange
- 3/4 cup fat free black cherry yogurt with 1 cup Life Multigrains cereal

- 6 sets of 15 squats
- 6 sets of 30 stomach crunches (2 straight, 2 right, and 2 left)
- 6 sets of 5 push ups
- 6 sets of 15 lunges for each leg
- 35 minute walk


  1. I feel the same way about reading the blogs. I've been away this past week, and am enjoying playing catch up. I just wish I had more time to truly do it all in one day. The new and different approaches to the same journey inspire me each and every day.

  2. good job with the workouts. Keep up the hard work.

  3. My pleasure! I've told my co-workers about your progress and they're amazed too.
    You're going to be in Onederland soon and I'm very excited for you! :)

  4. Still hoping to squeeze in some more catch up reading today...
