i made a whole mile on the ramp in 29 minutes...whoohoo
we got our ducks in a row..do you?
well i was able to make it for 29 minutes and do a whole mile..just 9 minutes off of my reg.time..i was so excited..my muscles were feeling it too..by the time i got done i was feeling the pain..but it was good pain this time..i have been able to walk a little better today ..and hopefully tomorrow i will be able to walk even better..wednesday is coming soon too and by the weekend i am going to be walking boomer lake..i just know i will..
last night i finally got my water down..i drank 60 ounces of water last night at my friends house..i went out there and saw him and his mom and visited with them all evening..it was fun and the topic of conversation all evening was about healthy eating..something we end up talking about alot these days..
He was making his own salad dressing last night so he could have a low calorie one he likes and one that he knows what is in it.so i wrote down the recipes and he said i could share them with you all...so i will have them at the end of this..
i ended up with my 1200 calories last night and did well..
so we come to today..this was a good day..and i am getting my water down me now as i write..were sitting here watching andy griffith show and enjoying a cooler evening..i worked tonight and then came home and decided i needed to do something..i always enjoyed the walking and i was starting to feel myself going thru the pain i was going thru before i had started walking..i needed the exercise even if i couldnt walk really well..i needed to do it..we all need too..we need to get up and get going..get moving and keep moving..it does make us feel better even if we dont feel our best..
so i walked and did it in 29 minutes..yay! i have eaten 960 calories today and will probably have a little more before bed..i am trying to stay away from bad carbs..i ate a fresh salad today and had yogurt this morning with sugar free pudding in it..it was so GOOD...
here is the salad dressing i wrote down last night..it doesnt take but a few minutes to make and it doesnt have hardly any calories in it..
the first one is SPICY TOMATO DRESSING...
1 can of 8 oz. canned tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
1/2 cup of white vineager
1 teaspoon of dillweed..spice
1/4 teaspoon tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons of grated onion
3 pkts of sugar substitute
place all ingredients in a small bowl and beat with a wire whip to blend. refridgerate until needed and bring it back to room temp..before you serve it..and shake it well before using ..2 tablespoons per serving..it is 29 calories per serving and makes 1 1/2 cups to 12 servings..it is very good..
i had a picture of it but i cant seem to get my camera to upload it..but this is a very good one..i have another one but i will put it on the blog tomorrow if you all like it..
and i have some information on how you can tell if you are diabetic..its from a diabetic doctor and i will share it with you tomorrow..i know from reading this ..it looks like iam prediabetic..and i was told that a few years ago..so i really do need to look at the carbs..and the calories..
hope you all enjoy the journey..
tomorrow i am going to the dentist..joy joy..hehe
have a good night..
