Week 4 - Day 4

Elliptical- 450 calories burned
Walk/Run/Bike Ride- 1 hr

I read a few blogs last night trying to get an idea as to how others are, well... acquiring and maintaining all of their energy.  I came across a few where people were eating energy bars. Several were drinking coffee and some with just a good ole breakfast. I also found an article on line here that provided a list of "high octane" foods to give you a boost. A few of those foods I already had so I decided to incorporate as many as I could in my meals today. I was surprised to see cantaloupe on there. I can eat bowls of that all day and I had run out. I woke up at 6 am this morning so that I could have time to run to the store to pick up some items, make breakfast and get in a quick 30 min walk with Sashi. As soon as I returned and pulled into my driveway *ding* it hit me....I had taken my hse key off of the key ring and placed it in the pocket of my sweats yesterday when I went to walk. Grrrr...I could only be mad at myself. I waited for an hour and a half  for someone to come over to let me in. 
Time flew by though. I had a chance to read my entire Clean Eating mag and I snacked on half of an apple pie Larabar I had purchased. It was very sweet and high in calories. I prayed that it would give me the energy that I needed. Maybe I should have eaten the whole bar?
Once again my energy boost didn't kick in until this evening and I knocked out all of my exercise goals for today. When I headed out the door and down the street for my bike ride, I overheard a neighbor across the street say that me on my bike was the funniest thing she's ever seen, but I didn't hear her laughing. My evil side wanted to reply "well gee I bet it is, and you're the funniest thing I've ever seen" but, instead I just hopped on my bike and rode on happily about my business. I never can understand why people make negative comments or put others down for something good that they're trying to do for themselves. Especially when this lady should be out exercising with me. Smh on that one. Never let anyone come between you and your goals with negative comments, or stares. Just give them the finger, any finger, and keep on pushing! Tomorrow I'm wearing my t-shirt that says bite me. 


Breakfast: 1 cup cantaloupe, 1 crepe stuffed with 1 oz Soyrizo, 2 egg whites, and 1/4 cup of fat free mozzarella cheese
Lunch: 1/2 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup black beans, 7 RW Garci Thai chips (mmmm)
Dinner: 1.5 cup cauliflower, 1 crepe stuffed with 4 oz chicken breast chopped, 1/2 cup of onions, 1 cup of spinach & 1slice 2% swiss cheese.
Snacks: 1/2 Larabar, 1 sq Baker's semi sweet chocolate, 1 Edy's fruit bar


Lunch- I put a little too much pepper on my beans. Those chips were mm mm good.

Dinner- pic didn't come out too well...was too busy chomping to hold the cam steady


  1. Those crepes look delicious!!!!

    Errr, why are people like that?!?! Brush the haters off. I've gotten comments like that too. Keep on, keeping on!

  2. Thanks! That 1st one was kind of "funky" but the dinner one was great.

  3. Are you getting enough sleep? I find that when I get more sleep I have more energy.

    As for the haters remember, "If they hate, your doing great!"

    Have a great weekend!

  4. MissHaneefa honestly I wasn't. I was always getting around 6 hrs of sleep. Today I got a full 8 and I do feel more rested and energized. Wow who knew those 2 hrs made such a difference!


Thanks for stopping by!
