Got my exercise in before the kids got up and had the rest of the day to spend with them.

I didn't order anything bad when I went to tutor at McDonald's.

Even though I am not home right now, I am managing to eat a reasonable amount of food instead of pigging out. Exercise is problematic but at least I am walking everywhere and stretching.

I went to an all-day teacher training, but for the first time all week completely resisted all of the potential "boredom eating binges" on the food provided (donuts, Doritos, and Hershey bars -- you'd think they want obese teachers)!! So often I give myself a "free pass" at these things, but this week I have been taking the time to pack healthy alternatives (strawberries and walnuts, yum!!) so that I don't feel deprived when everyone else starts gnoshing.

What went well today, I did my cardio that I missed on Monday and I worked out (a first in a long while).

Today I bought a Belgian waffle maker and made my no-sugar waffles!

recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=681631


My sister created the recipe to help me be able to eat waffles that are super yummy but that have no oil and no sugar. I whipped up a double batch but will make five or six more batches tomorrow to freeze. This waffle iron takes only about 2 minutes to bake a waffle!

The recipe makes 4 Belgian style waffles per batch. I'll freeze 1/2 of the Belgian waffle in a freezer bag for breakfast before work!

Also today, I exercised for the first time in a year on my stationary bike. Since I've been training hard using step aerobics and strength training, it was hard but not horribly hard to bike about 18 mph for 30 minutes.
