What is it with me and remote controls? I got all ready to put on the DVD yesterday and get my exercise in and the DVD player wouldn't turn on. I kept pushing and pushing the remote control and nothing. So I got down on my hands and knees and found the power button and hit it and voila, it worked. So off I go to the battery drawer to replace the batteries in that remote. Let's see, I think there is only one remote here in the living room that doesn't have new batteries. I might as well replace them today, because the next time I get ready to use the surround sound again they probably won't work. Good thing I picked up a 24 pack of batteries the last time I bought them.
I did feel like exercising yesterday and burned 583 calories. I ate on plan too. So all in all, yesterday was a good day.
I noticed on Biggest Loser last week that Bob gave a suggestion in between segments to sing while you exercise. In case you didn't catch it, he said that singing while you exercise will help you to breath better and will allow your body to get more oxygen. That's not hard to do with the oldies, so I did. I'm up to doing all but one song on the DVD and today I'll add it to my routine.
As you can see on my side bar, I updated my 6 weeks challenge stats. And I was honest about it instead of just deleting the chart so no one would see. After all this is about accountability and honesty.
Shhhhh, be real quiet so you won't scare them away, but there are four big deer (all does) rummaging through the snow right now outside my window. They are so beautiful. And it looks like they are finding plenty to munch on too. Sorry no pictures, it's too overcast and they blend in with the trees so well, you wouldn't be able to see them.
I fixed myself my very own chicken nuggets yesterday for supper and they were yummy. I just cut the chicken up into small pieces, coated them lightly in flour, salt and pepper, then fried them in a couple tablespoons of olive oil. And I wanted mashed potatoes with them so I baked one potato in the microwave then spooned out the meat and mashed it with some low fat Carnation evaporated milk and a little light butter. Yes, I did have vegetables too, cooked cabbage. Was a wonderful meal and kept me full for most of he evening. It would have kept me full all evening but I stayed up a little late last night, so I had strawberries dipped in Splenda for a snack. There was a restaurant in Charleston that used to have whole strawberries on their salad bar with powdered sugar for dipping. After trying that there, that's the only way I would eat them afterward. Well, the Splenda is just as good, I couldn't tell the difference.
I'm nearing the end of the 'Daniel X' book and it isn't much better. It's written for teenagers or older elementary children. I think that's why I haven't enjoyed it much. But the story has me captured to find out how it ends, so I'll finish it. Since I was a teacher, I've read a lot of teenage books so that I could recommend some to the kids and if you have one out there that likes Sci-Fi, I would recommend it for them. There is no foul language or sexually explicit content at all.
I used to read most everything I could get my hands on in the Sci-Fi genre but have gotten away from it and am into mysteries now.
Have a blessed Sunday.
