Today was a good day.

Things went well today.
Woke up and had an English Muffin with some scrambled egg whites and a banana. Lets not forget the coffee.
Lunch was a slice of pizza and an apple.
Dinner was two slices of whole wheat bread, 4 slices of roast beef and a little gravy to make an open faced sandwich. Sides were green beans and a salad.
During the day I had 3 additional fruits and a yogurt. Mid-day i was hungry so i made one of those Birds-eye broccoli packages and added some low fat Italian dressing for flavor.
For a dessert i had 4 Chips Ahoy cookies.

The morning also included 20 minutes on my treadmill. I have a Landice. Yeah, its expensive but its nice. I was impressed that it went 12 MPH and had auto incline. Well needless to say 12 MPH by car is SLOW..................Me trying to do it on a treadmill almost put me in the emergency room, lol.
So the program i chose was one that simulated hills and did a top speed of 4.5 MPH. It was like a brisk walk...........which i found ideal. You don't have to run like a gazelle to keep in shape. I read somewhere that if you cant hold a conversation while your exercising, your pushing yourself too hard. Moderate exercise is fine. The trick is to do it at least 3 times a week.
