I was moderately successful with my diet and exercise plan.

I used the stair master for 30 minutes this morning at 5:00 a.m.  According to the digital display I burned 170 calories; travelled 1.27 miles (equivalent to 60 floors).

I stuck to my diet for the most part.  I broke down at about 11:30 and ordered some fries and a voltage mountain dew from the roach coach.

I still consumed 3 bottles of water (each containing 16.9 fl oz) and 12.0 fl oz of cranraspberry juice.

The rest of my meal plan went is outlined last night.

Tuesday is a rest day.  I won't be going to the gym for any cardio.  Which is probably a good idea since I have not recovered from working in the garden.  My butt muscles and my thigh muscles are screaming at me :)

Tomorrow's Meal Plan:

Cranrasberry juice first thing in the morning

  • Blueberry Banana Smoothie
  • 20 raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup strawberries

  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 1 chopped pear over 2 cups spinach salad with 1 tbsp light raspberry vinaigrette
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 cup cauliflower
  • 4 tbsp light ranch dressing
  • 2 cups spring mix salad with 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp olive oil and juice of lemon
  • 1 cup broccoli
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1 small salmon (steamed, baked, or broiled) fillet
