Awesome came in the form of discount tickets to see Blue Man Group the very next weekend in Austin. Holy cr*p! The day just got even awesomer.
Color me excited. Bouncing off the freakin walls excited. I might explode if one more awesome thing happens.
BLUE MAN GROUP!
I have been Xena Warrior Princess when it comes to tackling exercise and eating right lately.
"How many calories does that have? *karate chop* Get that stuff away from me."
"How many miles do I need to walk today? Bring on another. I'll totally slay those miles."
Instead of walking the 3.1 miles I walked 4.
|Tilt your head. Technical difficulties.|
That's like almost a half marathon. Not ready to join any hiking groups just yet. Oh well.
Did great. No snacking without permission from my brain (no mindless eating) and everything with reasonable calories.
Drank 1 gallon of water + some tea.
Made awesome chili with lean beef and Wick Fowler's Two Alarm Chili Mix.
I did mess up the rice. I have a rice cooking chart and I read "cook in microwave 35-40 minues" when I should have read "cook in microwave for 12 minutes." I read the instructions for wild rice. The stuff came out in one big rubbery disk. Oops. Still added some to the chili. :)
Also made some totally yum cornbread.
Nonfat cooking spray
2 packages Jiffy cornbread mix
1 cup fat free sour cream
One 15oz can yellow corn, drained
3oz egg substitute
1/4 cup skim milk
Preheat oven to 400. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Mix all ingredients and pour into pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch and light golden brown.

One more 5K and I am done with my challenge. Woohoo! I'll report total mileage and stuff tomorrow.
And last, but not least, I joined another challenge because I'm feeling like be challenged. Again.
This one is Allan's Spawn of Double Dog Dare Challenge. The idea is: drink your water, eat within your calorie goal, exercise, don't cheat, lose weight.
Bring it! I'm ready to get into some nice clothes and lose this wad o' fat on my belly.
BLUE MAN GROUP!
