The Day After..

Day 2:
So can't recall if I mentioned that I went for a kick ass walk late yesterday afternoon/ early evening.
It was really good because it was an hour long, and I hoofed it.  My knees really felt it.  I noticed when I got home that I had the lovely aroma of ammonia wafting out of my pours.  Apparently some of us with too much protein in our diet have sweat that has a high percentage of ammonia.  WTF?  I east so little protein it's ridiculous.  I totally don't get that one.  So hopefully by upping my water intake I'll be able to make it a little less stinky in the world.  Don't hold your breath though (ok, maybe you should)

I was going to go to the gym this morning before work, but apparently I decided to sleep in a bit - so I will go after work now.  Even though I'm tired and hungry, I'll still go with a smile plastered on my face.
I am planning on starting my 0-5K program tonight.  I'm really interested to see how I do.  I've never been a runner - although I've wanted to run.  I dream about it.  It's actually one of my relaxation techniques.  So I thought I should actually give it a go.
Wish me luck!

As for food - I feel like I'm a little low today.
So far this is what I've had:

Breakfast: Apple and Cheese, Tea.
Snack: Refrigerator Oatmeal (Raspberry)
Lunch: Lean Cuisine, Raw Veggies, Babybel Cheese, Mandarin Orange.

I still have for a pre-gym workout another apple and babybel.

I'm drinking water with Lime today.  I'm finding the lime a bit on the sour side - not sure I'll do that tomorrow.  Seeing how I have been having a bit of a caffeine headache, I've taken some Tylenol and am now drinking Crystal Light - let's hope this helps because I really want to have the energy to work out tonight.

I'm telling you - giving up pop and coffee are going to be 2 of the hardest things for me.  I don't even want to talk about McDonald's!!

I just keep telling myself (well a few weeks ago when it was bugging me - I really wanted fish and chips or KFC) that it's never going to taste as good as I think it will.  It never does, and it always makes me feel like heaving it all up.  Oil. Bleck.

Besides, hello!! I don't want Gallbladder issues, so I really want to keep as much fried and fatty food out of my diet.

Mike is making dinner tonight - chicken with peppers, onions baked in pasta sauce.  Pasta on the side.

If I have any calories left after dinner and tea, I'm going to have fresh fruit with Creme Freche as a treat.  We'll see.

So to recap: I'm pooped, headachy, moany and still in good spirits and ready to do day 1 of my 0-5k.
I'd say that's a decent day so far.

Poopy MaGee.
