Break a sweat once a day

My new motto: Break a sweat at least once a day. I know it's not original, but it's snappy. Just got back from a quick jog with my favorite running buddy, Bella.

When she's not chewing on everything, she's quite the runner. Knowing she needs the exercise as much as I do (or she would eat the house) helps me to get moving when I would otherwise rather retire to the couch with a glass of wine.

My shoulders are still burnt from Saturday's back/shoulder blast, and my legs are recovering from my stair climber odyssey of Sunday, so a light cardio day is probably a good idea.

Ate well so far today - protein shake with skim milk for breakfast; muscle milk light bar for mid-morning snack; turkey sub on wheat/oat bread with veggies and O/V for lunch; small handful of walnuts for afternoon snack and now I'm planning lemon shrimp and lo-carb pasta for dinner. I highly recommend DreamFields for all of you pasta-fanatics out there. Low-glycemic impact = no insulin spike. Also sipped water all day and had a mug of green tea with Splenda this a.m.

Today's weight, 125 stubborn pounds.
