Just another Saturday...

Yesterdays walking stats:

Walked for 25 minutes
Minimum heart rate was 100
Average heart rate was 133
Maximum heart rate was 152
Calories burned were 387

Just couldn't make myself go the 30 minutes as planned. But, hey, something is better than nothing.

Finished the book yesterday and it was one of the most enjoyable ones I've ever read. Sure hated to say goodbye to the main character.

I've had a hard time getting milk down since starting this weight loss and usually only get the calcium in with cheese. I'm a person that loves whole fresh cows milk and can not stand the 2% or skimmed kind. I decided to try Soy Milk. I'd heard a lot of pros and cons about the taste and just decided I'd find out for myself. I love it, well the vanilla flavored one at least. I had really missed my bedtime snack of a bowl of cereal and I've had that most every night this week with some strawberries on it. Yummmmm. Now if I can just find a way to fry my skinless, boneless chicken breasts and still have them be healthy, life would be good.

Have a happy!

25 minute walk is nothing to sneeze at - good job!!

Did you want me to go through my 15 minute/5 ingredient weight watchers cook book to look for recipes for skinless, boneless chicken breasts that may be so tasty you don't mind that they aren't fried?

I'm glad you got your walking in. Even though you didn't go the full 30 that doesn't matter. What matters is that you walked.

Funny about the soy milk. I tried it for the first time this past Thursday and loved it, too. I got the vanilla flavored, too. It's real thick and tasty, but it's very low in fat. About a third of what's in whole milk. The protein is about the same, too. I'm not sure I'd like drinking it by itself, but I LOVE it in my cereal!

I just redid my stats on WW and I lost a point. I'm down to 22 per day, now. WWWWAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! :,,,(

Vanilla soymilk is yummy!

Congrats on the exercise, girl! A walk is a walk, so pat yourself on the back that you got out here and did it!

25 minutes of walking is nothing to sneeze at! AND your heart rate was up there where it needed to be. THAT is what counts!

I hate when a good book ends and i have to say goodbye to the characters. I thought I was the only one that felt that way!

MM soy milk is good stuff, huh! I used to drink it on occasion, but now I know to stay away from soy so I'll probably never drink it again. *sniff*

Congrats on the walk! You got more walking in than my fluffy butt!
