One pound down!

How many to go? (Okay, not going to think about that part.)

I'm pretty proud of myself for starting something so great. I've been out more in the past week - not strictly "exercise" outings, but for example my boyfriend reeeaaally wanted to go to Cabela's and I wasn't quite so keen. While he was checking out the stuff he wanted to I pretty much made laps around the store, being sure not to stick in one spot for too long so it was kind of like getting a walk in. Very casual, but a bit'o exercise nonetheless.

I'll be moving more with my new job, as well. I'll be on my feet 95% of every eight hour shift at least once a week, and it'll do me a lot of good. My feet were pretty sore by the end of my first day of orientation, but I'll get used to it within a few weeks, hopefully.

Anyway, here's the menu for tomorrow (I got a spiffy new lunch box so I'll start packing more):

Breakfast - Light multigrain english muffin with peanut butter & jelly; light smoothie

Lunch - Another light smoothie; light string cheese; celery, carrot and cucumber sticks; grapes and strawberries; 100 calorie pack of Cheez-Its; light yogurt

I'm also freezing a bottle of water so I have something to sip on throughout the day at work. (6:30 am to 3 pm, and I have to get up at 5:30 - ick!)

In other news, I had a little birthday money left so I got a Nintendo DS Lite (in coral pink, of course). There's a homebrew game out there called "Colors!" that a lot of people are starting to use with the DS as a digital sketchbook, including some professionals. I look forward to playing with it. For now I just have my old Advance games to tide me over 'til the flash pack arrives and I can install Colors!

    English Muffins are delish. I usually go with Jelly or an egg, but should probably mix in some PB, like you. I'm noticing that I'm typically coming in LOW on fats, even though I'm not specifically screening for it.

    How are you liking the 100 cal packs? I've tried a few, but ended up preferring to spend calories elsewhere. I do dig the Special K cereal bars, though... 90 cals and very tasty!
