Silver Lining... check!

Do you know what this picture means:

Aside from it showing that I completed a very slow mile, it means that I actually DID IT! After a week off, I followed my exercise plan on Monday and I am ready to use my treadmill again, tonight!

Dinner Plan for this week:

Monday - Grilled Chicken with Green Bean Crunchtables (DONE!)
Tuesday - Burgers with side Salad (DONE!)
Wednesday - Quesadilla with side salad
Thursday - Quesadilla with side salad
Friday - Salsa Con Queso Chicken
Saturday - Dinner out with friends

Exercise Plan for this week:

Monday - Treadmill - 1 mile (DONE!)
Tuesday - Rest (DONE!)
Wednesday - Treadmill - 2 miles
Thursday - Rest
Friday - Treadmill - 1 mile
Saturday - Rest

So far, so good! Although, instead of having a quesadilla for dinner tonight, I am going to have a grilled chicken salad. My husband is off of work early today, so he offered to make us grilled chicken. Sounds good, right?! It's probably healthier this way, too!


I had an unexpected doctor's appointment this morning. I called yesterday afternoon, thinking they would schedule me for next week, and they had an opening for today! As you may remember, I wasn't feeling well last week (hence the entire week off from exercise). Instead of over sharing, I will just say that my doctor is running some lab work to check my liver and kidney functioning along with other some other stuff. The good news is that I was 4 pounds lighter than the last time I was in and the last time they checked my cholesterol it was within normal range so they didn't have to check again, today! Silver lining... check!


Tonight is my two mile run. I am going to do this distance in intervals and hopefully I talk myself in to running more than walking (unlike Monday's mile). I finished all of the seasons of Parenthood, which was fun to watch while on the treadmill. I need a new show, something to watch tonight. I've got access to Netflix and Hulu. Any suggestions for me?


  1. Good job on the mile! Have you tried the Couch to 5k program? I love it. It has eased me into running and I NEVER would have thought I could EVER run a mile. Now I am running 2 or more.

    As far as suggestions, have you tried Downton Abbey? I think there are a few seasons on Netflix. I also love Mad Men which are on Netflix as well.

  2. I love Hart of Dixie and Breaking Bad, both on Netflix. Great job on sticking to your plan!

  3. Couch to 5k, Starting it again this week! Like the layout of your blog :) Keep it up !

  4. I second Mad Men and defiantly Downtown Abbey if you haven't sent it!

  5. Great job on the mile! I think it's harder to "get back on" than the exercise itself. It's so easy to just not do it!
