The Week of Accountability - Day 3

Today was a slightly different day as I've been home with my husband (he's having a bad day with his rheumatoid arthritis). Days at home always seem to be far more challenging than days when I'm at work. However, I've done well.

Yummies for the day
3/4c Whole Grain Total, 1/2c Blueberries, 1/2c skim milk
Turkey and cheese sandwich on Arnold Sandwich Thin
1c Watermelon, Cantaloupe and Honeydew
Yoplait Lite Yogurt
2oz 2% Cheese cubes
1c Turkey and White Bean Chili with Cheese
Vitatop Corn Muffin
Peanut butter sandwich on Arnold Sandwich Thin

Snacks later
Kellogg's Fiber Bar
1c Skim Milk
Weight Watcher's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar

I still have a few points left, so I may have some 100 calorie popcorn later, we will see.

I did get 1.2 miles in on the treadmill today.  It was strange though, I worked as hard, walked my typical speed - but I didn't sweat nearly as much.  Does the "ease" happen that quickly? Is it time to up the intensity already?  Has anyone experienced this on only the fourth day of "regular" exercise?  Perhaps it's a fluke.

  1. It is not a fluke. It is normal. Boost it just 5% faster and see what happens. Your body is getting oxygen where it did not get it before. It is very excited by what you are doing. You may find yourself responding more intensely in matters of physical intimacy, too. That is a very nice bonus to health.
