Stepping Stones Week 34 – Week 33 In Review

    Pinned Image

      I did get in all of my exercise this week. I did 20 miles of speed walking and 4 –  40 minute sessions in the gym. I watched calories very closely Sunday – Thursday, but then there was the weekend. This is a problem I seem to be experiencing with some regularity lately. I have the will power to eat 1000 – 1400 calories on the days Istay home after work, but when the weekend rolls around I want to enjoy the cookouts, dinners out, or time out for relaxation with a little comfort food.  I need to work on having the will power to say no on the weekends too.

     My ankle has improved a lot but I have a strange new issue. I have what feels like tumor type knots at the base of my calf muscle, and they are sore. I have had trouble with this calf cramping previously and always it seems more stiff or rigid than the other leg when I try to jog. I’m not sure if the knots have just developed or it I am only now noticing them. I am contemplating seeing a doctor. I will watch them for a while and see if they change.

     My great food discovery this week is Bear Creek Gumbo Soup Mix. Tony and I have both fallen in love with this. At 130 calories a cup it makes a delicious low call lunch side for a sandwich or with the suggested addition of some turkey sausage and or white meat chicken chunks it’s a hearty meal. We will definitely have this again.

     For week 34 my stepping-stones will remain the same with me focusing on trying to control weekend calories more closely. Hope your week 34 is fun and successful!
