Today's challenge: Finding time to blog. :) oh, eating on-calorie too.

Actual fitness: 3-mile lunch run (already done), 2 1/2 mile nightly run with 60 minute bicep and back work-out, abdominals

Note on no sweet-n-low and no caffeine: Actually had some stomach upset on my run today...hmm... not sure what that means. Still have some headaches here and there. Overall, feel like my body is adjusting to no caffeine. Feels nice.

Note on weight gain: What can I say? This is temporary and annoying but nevertheless what the scale reads. I feel like I definitely have a better handle on my eating this week as compared to last week. I'm keeping my calorie in line yesterday (updating that) and the day before and need to just keep chugging along.

Note on picture: Picked up this tea last night and it tastes nice. I've been adding creamer and some sugar to these teas and absolutely love it. Very good for my caffeine transition as much as I like the whole drinking something warm and soothing thing. Three coffees a day was just too much, and my personality is such that it's hard for me to want to stop at two coffees and then have a tea inbetween. All or nothing, baby!


  1. Hey, hey! I keep trying to like tea, but there is something about it that just tastes like... well... hot water. Maybe some other flavors might help me. I don't drink coffee, but love hot chocolate with a passion. Wal Mart has a sugar-free kind for only 25 cals a packet! I might have even talked about it before.

    Would you believe I didn't even eat cake this weekend? I might still have some up my nose those... = )

  2. sorry to hear the stomach is still acting up :-/ it is very frustrating, especially with running! i've been on the treadmill a lot lately so that i have restroom-access whenever the need arises.
