I Didn't Wanna Do It

Thoughts for Today
After a long day yesterday and a very full day today including doing my taxes, I was in no mood for exercising and my pedometer steps were nowhere close to 10,000. Knowing I didn't want to do it, my wife thankfully jumped in and gave me the motivation I needed, insisting on a much longer walk than we usually do so I could hit my 10,000 goal. She had us going down every little extra dead end, cul-de-sac, and parking lot she could find til I reached goal. And I actually feel more energetic now after having done it. I definitely would have rationalized my way out of it tonight without her, so she gets a Sugar Doll award too even though she doesn't blog!

Grading myself a B for today for the long walk, plenty of water, decent snacking. Would have graded higher if dinner portion was smaller and I'd had a bit less overall sodium.

Good night y'all!

10,000+ pedometer steps after the long walk.

90 cal Kellog's Honey Nut bar. 2 cups of black coffee.

Mineo's for a slice of cheese pizza and a side salad with vinegarette. The pizza was really good and I must admit I was a little sad when it was gone. Once we left the place I was fine and wasn't hungry at all, but still those urges are clearly there.

Wife made a terrific grilled tilapia topped with homeade onion, olive, tomato, garlic, and olive oil salsa. I ate a pretty big piece of tilapia, but had only green beans seasoned with Louisiana Hot Sauce for a side dish. Big glass of water.

Cascadian almond/chocolate granola bar. Small bowl of Multi Grain Cheerios with skim milk. Frozen Skinny Cow French Vanilla Truffle.


  1. You are amazing. Keep up the good work, or as an alternate, keep that wifey happy!

  2. Yaaay for supportive partners! :o)

  3. What a sweet woman :)

    It's always nice to have someone to push us along when we'd rather lounge on the couch.

    Taxes...ICK...just mailed mine off.

  4. Yay for your wife keeping you motivated :) And yay to you for going along!
