Too HOT!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

Lesson learned today: Don't go walking at 2pm around the lakes.

I got so hot I nearly got sick. Thank goodness for some water coolers they had posted around. I still walked 2.5 miles there and walked another half a mile when i got home. I have a nice bit of color on my shoulders and cheeks now though. Thank goodness I didn't stay out there too much longer or I'd be burned thanks to my delicate Irish heritage. Need to make sure I have some sunblock.

How do you guys get enough protein? I can't seem to get the balance right. I either overdo it on carbs, or fat. If I don't go over the carbs or fat, I seem to fall short on the calorie part. Kinda frustrating, but I'll figure this out. This isn't a diet. It's a lifestyle change! I can't just tough it out.

    I try to make sure every meal has a little bit of each (veggies, bread, protein, etc) and I also try to include high protein and high fiber foods in my diet. Congrats on the walk!

    I'm in the Pacific Northwest and we really don't have too many hot days, but this last week's been an exception. It's true, not being aware of the temperature, whether hot, or cold, or whatever can affect us adversely. I can relate as our focus often times is on other things than our surroundings.

    Maybe try to get weekly totals instead of daily? I know some days I go well over in everything or a couple things and some days I'm really low (especially on fat and cals). But if you go weekly then it's ok if you go over some days and under other days because it all evens out in the end. Thats the way I see it anyway
