I realize that I can't beat myself up over giving in and eating sugar occasionally.  I am not overweight and I know that, but that isn't the point of cutting sugar out.  For me, sugar makes me feel bloated, tired and overall unhealthy.  A little sugar isn't going to kill me.  I am happy to be more aware of it though.Water:  80 oz.

I walked on my treadmill tonight and here is my comparision against my Garmin Vivosmart that I got for Christmas and my treadmill's data...

Time - 63:09

Treadmill - 4.5 miles @ 4.3 pace                   
Fitness Tracker - 3.2 miles @ 3.0 pace, 214 calories burned

I haven't synced my steps to my actual pace yet so I need to do that so it can be more accurate!  Either way, I got in some extra burn today!

After work I decided to jump on my treadmill and go for a walk...it's still a little too cold for me to want to go outside.  I turned on my TV in front of it and caught up on my DVR show, The Biggest Loser.  By the end I had walked at a 4.3 pace for over an hour and had gone 5 miles.  Wahoo!  The best news was my foot didn't bother me.  I'm trying to ease back into things to see how it feels.  Maybe 5 miles isn't easing though! :)

I think I may have a stress fracture on my left foot.  I'm not 100% sure, since I haven't had an MRI, but it has been bothering me for a while.  I didn't find myself exercising much in December so I didn't notice the pain then, but since I have started things back up in January, the pain has returned.  It is a dull, aching pain, but it is still there and noticeable enough to bother me.  I haven't worked out this week because of it.  Instead, I have been icing after work and taking it easy.
Yesterday I finally accepted the fact that my diet has gotten WAY off course!  That may account to why I put back on my weight from before the 6 week challenge?!?  Anyway, I need to recommit, especially if there's a chance I need to lay off the exercising!  .

Abs are made in the Kitchen:


Breakfast:  Activia blueberry yogurt

Lunch:  chicken salad sandwich on white bread with about 15 Veggie Straw Pringles

Ok so I am not quite back to where I started with my 6 week challenge, but pretty dang close!  I know it because I can feel it in myself and the way my clothes are starting to fit too.  Truth be told, I also know it because of the way I have been eating.  I haven't been holding myself accountable and now I can see why food is more important than exercise.  After all, abs are made in the kitchen and not at the gym right?
Today my school district is beginning a wellness challenge as part of earning our wellness points.  So for if no other reason, today is a great day to start fresh with my 6 week challenge!

Pre-work out:  granola bar
Breakfast:  banana
Snack: fruit snacks & sm bag of Scooby snack crackers
Lunch:  hamburger patty with grilled onions and scoop of mashed potatoes (leftovers)
Snack:  fruit parfait (vanilla yogurt, strawberries & granola)
Dinner:  fajitas (steak, peppers, onions, tortilla & tomatillo dressing)

*Water: 45 oz?

*According to a "how much water should I drink in a day?" calculator, I should be drinking about 30 oz. of water /day.  For Christmas I got a (40oz.) HydroFlask.  My goal is to empty it at least once a day.  Yesterday I did have to refill it, but I didn't drink much after that so I know it was more than 40oz and that's what really matters I suppose!
