Today in Food and Workout: Day 1

I am going posting my food and workouts for the day. I'll do the plan first and what was actually done second.

Today's plan for exercise was to do day 1 of the 10k program I have decided to do. So, 3 mile run + strength.

Food for today was pretty decent.

Breakfast- Harvest Peach yogurt w/ 1/4 cup of Apple Cinnamon granola.
Lunch-Chicken Salad Sandwich(2 slices multi grain bread w/ chicken, grapes, a little mayo, and lots of mustard inside) and a side salad with a little dressing! It was delicious!
Dinner-Chicken tenders, broccoli w/ cheese sauce and a side salad with tomatoes.
Desert-Vita top muffin w/ whipped cream and mint chips
Kind of a high calorie day, but I don't think i'm eating enough right now as i'm not losing anything and only eat 1200 or so calories a day. So, i'm upping it to see how I do over a weeks period of time.

When I got home from work, I went to the track. I ran 3 miles at 10:59 pace. I'm working on my speed right now. I'm a slow runner, so it will take some time, but i'll get faster. I will be doing the "30 Day Shred" after finishing this post.

Overall, I think I had a decent day! I'm going to try to not have the mint chips on my desert for the next few weeks, as I looked at the calories and there's 210 calories in 3 tablespoons....GEESH!!

I also found that 1200 calories was not enough for an active person, I was ALWAYS hungry. I upped them and am playing around with the right amount to lose.

Good for you for listening to your body and making the adjustments you need. And great job on the workouts today!

Hi, I just came across your blog. As someone new to blogging about fitness, it's good to find a network of like-minded people for support and encouragement. It looks like you've made great progress since you started.

If you don't mind a question from a newbie to your blog, do you feel that you are eating enough produce? The broccoli and salad are great choices, but extra vegetables and fruit would help to fill you up without adding a lot of calories. Maybe writing down what you eat on a regular basis would be a good tool to help you see where you could make changes.

Glad I found your blog.
