Level Two!!!

Thoughts for Today
After about two months on the pedometer I wear as part of my company's wellness program I finally made it to Level 2, which earns me $25. Not much yet, but the next 3 levels are $125, $175, and $175, so I'll keep up the walking. Of course the real payoffs are in feeling better and dropping pounds, but still I'll take the cash! If anyone of you have a chance to get in one of these programs, I recommend it.

Assault on Salt Week hasn't exactly started with a bang, because on top of Thai food for lunch I had some leftovers from yesterday's dinner that I didn't want to go to waste. Tomorrow will be a lot less salty.

Grading myself a B- because eating overall wasn't bad, plenty of water, and enough exercise to hit 10,000 steps.

Ran 20 minutes on Wii Fit. Will have 10,000+ pedometer steps after a walk around the block

Fiber One Oats and Chocolate Bar. 2 cups of black coffee.

Thai Food - Red Curry Chicken and a spring roll.  Ate only 1/2 the steamed white rice. Most excellent! Water.

Leftovers from last night. Half of Rattlesnake Pasta, mashed potatoes (no gravy), and a little bit of sweet potato for dessert.

6-8 malted milk balls (Whoppers). Fiber One Oats and Chocolate Bar.


  1. I love Thai Food. I haven't had it for quite awhile.

    Rattlesnake pasta? What is that?

    Great job on all of your walking. You are just so balanced with all this. It's truly inspiring!!

  2. Congrats on your new walking level...our company has a wellness program too...not enough companies have them.

    I like sweet potato too...I like how you had it for dessert!

  3. I wish my company had some kind of wellness initiative. they give us a stipend to pay for a gym, but we don't have any in-service programs to motivate people. I love Thai food too. I find Thai is a great place to go when you want some healthy choices. They have great soups and flavorful salads... the curries rock too. Can you do a green curry without sweating? I sure can!


  4. MMMMM....sweet potatoes. Yum. Congrats on getting to Level 2 with the work program! :)

  5. I love that your workplace is doing that much to encourage your health. Wonderful. It's also harder than we think to get rid of excess salt. Especially when I'm eating out.
