It's the truth. I'm not "making" an excuse.
Tomorrow is walking with the girls and as a punishment for not running this morning, I'm going to walk to the house that we're all meeting at rather than drive. It's only about a mile away. So it'll be an extra 15 minute walk for me. If it works out okay, I can do this on a regular basis. Put in an extra 20 minutes of walking on top of the hour that I walk with the girls. Not bad.
Now Friday is my next true test to see if I get up and run. Count down commencing, engines on... Friday is the day I'm starting my runs again.
2 days and counting...
I subscribe to an e-newsletter from iVillage called "Conquer Your Cravings". It's a daily dose of helpful hints to help with the diet. Today's was pretty cool. I thought I'd copy you guys on it. It was talking about portion control and ways to easily figure out if your portions are too big:
- A woman's fist or a baseball = one cup serving of vegetables or fruit
- A rounded handful = about one-half cup cooked or raw veggies or cut fruit, a piece of fruit, or one-half cup of cooked rice or pasta; also a good measure for a snack serving, such as chips or pretzels
- A deck of cards or the palm of your hand (don't count your fingers!) =a three-ounce serving of meat, fish or poultry
- A thumb tip = about one teaspoon of peanut butter or margarine
Well, that's my shameless plug for the day.
Do you guys have any favorite "women's" websites?
