Today's challenge: Getting my other activities done despite being fatigued from my run. Staying hydrated. Staying on track with my calories.

Actual fitness: 10 mile run, my abdominal routine once today

Note on picture: Grilled cheese sandwiches made me gain weight, but yesterday I ate the lighter version. Two slices of Natural Ovens Bakery Weight Sense bread: 100 calories, 1/2 oz of shredded cheese:40, 1 slice of turkey cotto salami:45, 2 tsp of (one for each side for grilling) of Natural Balance light butter:30. Total calories: 215. With calories this low, you can have this for lunch and still have enough calories for a salad, or cottage cheese with fruit.

Note on weight loss: About time. Maybe there's hope for me yet.

PARA MAS INFORMACION SOBRE LA ESTAFA VISITEN: PIENSATELO ANTES DE HACER NEGOCIOS CON ESTE LADRON OMAR GARCIA MILLAN! ===============================================================================================ESTAFA AUTOMOTRIZ MEXICO! PELIGROSO!

Ok, I know it's small...but I didn't want it taking up this whole page.

No, the reason I asked this question is because it's in Spanish. Someone by the name of Pedro left this on my comment section yesterday.

Who can read Spanish?

What's interesting is that I love Spanish. I took it in high school for a few years and then a few in college, but it's been long enough that I'm not completely sure what this says.

Maybe I can figure out what this says. Maybe Pedro wanted to encourage me on my diet, after all I did lose another pound today...whooo hooo!!

Hmmm....let's see.

I get the part "alerta" where's he's alerting me to something...Maybe he's wants to alert me to stay away from high calorie foods today. Yes, I agree. I'm so close to losing that last five pounds, that I totally get staying away from fatty foods.

Also, I understand "muy importante" --very important, yes, I know that eating right and not going over my calories is very important to losing weight. Ha, Ha, you don't have to tell me that calories are everything.

Pedro adds and that I should "tengan mucho cuidado por favor"--please take great care-- Yes, Pedro, I am taking great care of my body, believe me! Heck, I'm running 10 miles today, doing abs twice a day, and weight lifting three hours a week, plus the other running I'm doing. "No problemo, there Pedro! Ha, get it? problemo?"

He stresses that I "no hagan negocios con.." --should not negotiate with .... What?!? That I shouldn't negotiate with some of my calories? C'mon Carlos...I mean Pedro, I need a little negotiating room here with some of the food I eat. I mean as long as I don't go over my calorie limit, I can eat some unhealthy food..."

Oh, wait, erase that. He says I shouldn't negotiate with ""--....a car company?

Well, that just doesn't make any sense at all.

Wait, there is this part, "mejor que creer a un tipo llamado Omar Garcia Millan" which I think says....that if you really believe, you can call Omar Garcia with your tips.

Well, maybe Omar's on a diet too.

Pedro, just have Omar visit my site, he'll get plenty of diet tips here. He could even visit a few of my follower's sites too because they're pretty cool too. Jack is funny. My newest follower, Kristin, has wonderful mouthwatering, easy-to-cook, low calorie recipes, Lindsey is great runner and encourager,...well, I could just go on here, but you get my point.

Wow, that was fun. I told you I like Spanish.

Thanks for the comment Pedro, I'm encouraged.


  1. I can't speak Spanish but want to say WOO HOO...Congrats on the pound lost.

  2. Sorry sweetie, but according to Google Translator & the little bits I could read - it looks like you've been spammed.
    Here is what Google translated:
    ALERT ALL TERRITORIES MEXICAN VERY IMPORTANT: The scam largest automaker in Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico. Please, be very careful not to do business with and because what seems Panamenians carrisimo going out! Sometimes an ounce of prevention goes better than to believe a guy named Omar Garcia Millan and his promises that are never fulfilled. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCAM YOU VISIT: Think BEFORE DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS THIEF OMAR GARCIA MILLAN!

    Aside from that, Whoo Hoo on the loss!!
    Keep it up, you are doing GREAT!

  3. uhh, no idea on the spanish.

    i have the hardest time doing my "other workouts" too after a run. i don't like to do them (abs, lunges, etc) before a run b/c i don't feel "loose"/awake, but i rarely get around to doing them post-run because i'm tired and just wanna sit down and read blogs :) sigh, what a battle. no excuses! do your abs and stuff!!

  4. ClixSense is an high paying work from home site.
