Day 14 on Holiday Weight Loss Challenge

I had a wonderful walk in the snow today. I live 30 minutes north of where I work and the snow is much deeper up here. There is a wonderful park just a little bit north of where I live. The parking lot where I normally park was closed off, but another parking space just down the street was open.

The snow was so deep I had trouble walking up small hills. I estimated there was 8 inches or more snow in most places. Nobody else was out walking and it was so interesting. There were trails where the cross country skiers had been. Somebody had been walking with snowshoes. The deer in the area were numerous. I actually ended up seeing 8 deer in 3 different instances.
One hawk was flying around screeeching about something. Me perhaps?

I saw the deer tracks before actually seeing any deer. It was 2 hours before dusk, and the deer tracks were all the way down to the path. The park has 2 creeks flowing through it. Ice was building on the creeks and many animals had left their foot prints next to the creek.

I always stay on the trail. Today, it was difficult to walk anywhere. I went 3 miles in the same time it would normally take me to walk 4 miles. But it was great fun despite the deep, heavy snow.

I ate something different today for breakfast. Instead of grits and eggs, I ate 2 servings of Product 19 including 8 ounces of milk, and 8 ounces of orange juice. After church I drank some hot tea and ate a brownie.

Now the brownie was one of 3 I ate today. I never should have made them yesterday. My wife, Mary, yelled at me for making the brownies.

At Christmas time, Mary received a turkey from her employer. So she spent all day on Sunday cutting up the turkey so we could eat it throughout the week. For lunch we ate a grilled cheese sandwich, 1 serving of potato chips and I drank some water. Oh yeah, I also had a brownie.

Dinner was so delicious. Mary had prepared one of the turkey breasts, with dressing, gravy, green beans and mashed potatoes. Now, if you are trying to lose weight I wouldn't recommend this meal as one you should eat on a regular basis.

But anytime you try to lose weight you are going to have meals like this on occasion. How do you handle the times when this wonderful food is available to you? I limited my meal to one serving. I drank water with the meal.

The rest of the week you need to concentrate on the good food you should eat. So this week we will be good. Eat veggies not potato chips. Drink water instead of pop. And oh yeah, let's walk this week or start a good aerobics program or yoga program.

Good luck this week. I am thinking of you and wish you success.
