As said yesterday on my weight challenge post I have a big present for myself in mind for losing weight. I want to buy a Garmin Forerunner 305 for myself as a gift.
I know some of you already have one and I would like to hear your experiences with the Garmin, what do you like about it and what are it’s negative points. Or if you have a different type of the forerunner why did you choose that one and how do you like it?
Yesterday when I got home from work I started with putting up the Christmas tree and decorate it. It took me 3 hours. I actually don’t like doing this but once I’m finished I do love the decorations in our home. Here are some pictures.
Something for on the table:
This weekend I have to write and post our Christmas cards, I might do that tonight and I have to think about our Christmas dinners so I can place my orders next weekend. I’m a person who plans a lot so I have less stress when Christmas starts.
Still haven’t exercised. My body needs time to adjust I’ve noticed so I’m taking a week of rest. Maybe I’ll go for a short run tomorrow but I’m definitely go back to training on Monday.
What’s for dinner:
Thursday some beef meat, potatoes and broccoli. Simple but very WW approved.
Yesterday I was so busy with the tree that I had two slices of bread with 2 baked eggs.
Today’s lunch was a WW one: a salad with apple, walnuts, light Brie and a little bit of dressing with a little bread to go with it. It was a delicious lunch.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
By the numbers: 246: Dollars, in millions, that Coca-Cola spent to promote Coke products in 2004.
3: Dollars, in millions, the US government spent in a year on the Five a Day for Better Health campaign in support of fruit and vegetables.
Food Factoid:: Federal law allows most products a 20 percent variance for the calorie counts listed on food labels, so a cookie labeled 300 calories can legally contain up to 360 calories.
Nutrition tip: By buying generic food brands, you can save as much as 50 percent on items from pasta sauce to cereal to salad dressing. With name brands, much of the money goes into advertising and packaging.
House is ready for Christmas.
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself…
