Thursday, January 8, 2009 - Gettin' down to business

I stopped at the store last night and stocked up on some things.
Even though I am not strictly lowcarb, I am still incorporating some of the principles. I bought some oranges and some whole wheat English muffins. Since I am tracking points in combination with glycemic load (I have to watch that because of blood sugar issues), the English muffins are much less of a point hit than the bagels I was eating. I also love to freeze Dannon Light and Fit yogurt.
I'm off to hit the treadmill and watch the half hour I missed of Biggest Loser.

Daily stats:
Type: Treadmill

Route: Manual controls
Time: 30
Average heart rate: 115
Max heart rate: 126
Calories burned: 220

While I was working out this morning, I watched the first half hour that I missed of Biggest Loser. I think the average person looks at people that big and wonders how they let it happen. Those of us who struggle know exactly how it happens. It happens one day at a time. And that's exactly how it has to come off.
I am babystepping my way through my menus at the moment.

  3. Hi Janene,
    Welcome to my blog, glad to have you here. I also have a primitive (sort of) blog at

    I love your sink board. I'm going to have my hubby make one for me.

  4. You can steal the's yours for the taking!
    It only cost $13 for the wood...could be cheaper if you have them and glue them together yourself!
    I dry brushed the black on and then rubbed in a walnut stain. I plan on finishing it up with tinted wax.
    I will check out your prim blog and more than likely add it to my favs...I'm a sucker for prims!
