July 19th Thursday Daily



When in doubt, work it out. This is still a trying process..

For some reason, I was really, really motivated today to get moving. I did a lot of walking this morning, with the dog since I’m dog/house sitting for my Dad. I had a decent day at work, nothing too thrilling.

Went home, let the doggie out and had a quick snack (leftover pasta) so I didn’t eat my face off at the restaurant. After work I met up with my Mimi and we went to Max & Erma’s for dinner. I definitely watched what I got to eat/portions. I ordered a lunch portion of a normal salad. The only semi-bad thing was the chicken (it was fried) and it was totally pathetic. Like a little chicken strip. Anyway, I split some french onion soup, figured that would be better than eating the whole thing myself.

Felt like going for a run afterwards. The weather was perfect too! It was a sign. The sun was hiding, a little overcast, cool breeze.

So off I went, best run and new time mile marker! I was hurting a little bit, so I’m going to have to be weary of that and start to hit up a yoga class again perhaps? Definitely don’t want to re-injure myself again.



Started off the day with walking the pup for 30 minutes. Supposedly it kick starts your metabolism, etc. Last night’s run was a little rougher than I thought it was going to be. I think it was a bit hillier than what I usually run, but the ‘terrain’ is going to be different wherever you go, so I can’t complain. I didn’t stop at all which I was impressed with and proud of. I accomplished another milestone in my summer and all-time running with having gone for 54 minutes! Then took out the pup for a cool down/walk. My legs felt shot afterwards. Used Map My Run for the info below!

According to my Calorie Counter App I burned over 3,270 calories and consumed 1,325 for the day.


Coffee with the works, banana, no sugar added applesauce, strawberries, old fashioned quaker oats


Baby carrots, little bit of light ranch/reduced fat, extra sharp cheddar with TLC crackers, half of a cucumber, some tomatoes, and turkey with a bit of mayo


Grabbed a snack before the restaurant so I wouldn’t over eat. Pasta with some broccoli and mushrooms. Lunch portion of a salad from Max & Erma’s; hard boiled egg, tomatoes, chicken, light ranch, and mixed greens/lettuce and a breadstick.  Shared some french onion soup too.
