Monday and its grad week

Well, I have to tell ya I am still so jazzed about my 6 mile walk. Ya, ok I was a bit sore Sunday, especially that one heel of mine. But, it gets to feel better once I start walking it out. Yesterday was so warm and lovely, I laid out by the pool for a bit. Water still a bit too cool for me, I'm a wuss, I need it near 90. Yep, I'm a prima donna.. Still using my Fitness Pal. It is the best thing I have found. It has everything type and brand name food, fluids in it.  I was watching the Hungry Gal show this weekend and she was showing the low cal way to make burgers. So, I decided to try them. I went and bought fat free cheese, tomatoes, boneless, skinless chicken breast and cut them length wise in half and I bought those thin orowheat and the thin bagel buns. 100 calories per sandwich, I "George Foremaned" the chicken breast (all of them) and make a sandwich out of one of them. It was so good. I took the rest ,and  will bring a chicken sandwich for lunches versus a lean cuisine.  I was so proud of them and yummmmmmmmy good. I needed a change, I am tired of pre-packaged meals, even if they are low Cal. I brought a large pitcher of Iced Tea to work today and is really good.  I plan on walking today for my 50 min 2+ mile walk. My scale does show a 4lb loss, but of course, it is tomorrow at 4:00pm that I will weigh at the clinic. Hopefully it will show the loss at that time of day. It will be a short work week for me, I am taking Thursday and Friday off for my baby's High School Grad. Poor baby he is still sick, sounded really bad this AM. Grad night is at Disneyland and I told him if he is still sick, he doesn't have to go, and don't worry about the money I spent. We can donate the ticket to another student who couldn't afford it. He always worries about how much money I spend on him.(Except at the casino hmmmm). What a sweetie. God I love my kids!


For my STS update:
I met my goal for work outs X
I met my goal for fluids X
I (with my best friend the My Fitness Pal) now am meeting my goal of 1200-1300 calories X
I lost 4 lbs as of today- But I will see what tomorrow states X
