Day 370

My hubby and I decided to move our morning walks around our neighborhood to walk a 10k @ the beach.  I must say today is beautiful here on the Gulf Coast.  Although the temps were in the 80's, there was just the right amount of breeze off the water to keep the sweat away as we walked. One of the perks of living near the beach.   I feel badly about complaining about him invading my space yesterday.  My hubby normally walks a 17-18 min mile, while I struggle to stay 19-20 mins.  He definitely challenged me today to pick up my speed, at the same time, I am sure I was slowing his pace.  But he never complained.

I skipped breakfast today, drinking my isopure alpine punch instead.  For lunch my wonderful husband is grilling T-bones (of which I only eat a bite or two) and the last of our summer corn.  We also boiled some shrimp to go in our salad.  Sounds good huh?

I finished the day with another wonderful green salad for dinner with a few boiled shrimp.  My husband can boil the most delicious seafood.  The shrimp was perfectly seasoned.  His best is crawfish, but it is hardly dietary with the amount I eat so I am very glad our peak crawfish season only lasts a few months a year.

Had to take a pain pill for my knee, it really hurts.  I expected it after such a tough workout this morning.  Tomorrow will be the end of my peaceful weekend without the kids.  I am thinking about swimming laps tomorrow instead of walking, my knee will need the change.

Fitness - walking 6.2 miles
Healthy eating - breakfast was a protein drink, lunch was 2 oz of tbone steak, beautiful green salad with shrimp, supper was another salad w/shrimp, my snack today was a small bowl of cheerios putting me well below 1200 today.


  1. Shrimp boil huh, that does sound good. That is someserious committment to hold yourself to just 2 oz of t-bone. I'd have had a hard time not going for 3, 4, 5...

    Happy Labor Day!

  2. Mmm, shrimp = yummy. Wow, you did a lot of walking. Perhaps your knee does deserve a little break :)

    Just had to look up Isopure Alpine Punch on the net. That's what I love about the internet. You learn something new every day.
