Days 70-72 Ooops! I've Fallen........ah, whatever

So yes, I was out of town for a few days, and had limited access to my blog.

But I'm home now, and I'm definitely in need of getting back up again.

We went to Chicago for a few days...took the train into Union Station. That's a cool trip. It's about 5 hours from our house to Chi-town. It is so much easier than flying, since we literally pulled into a parking space at the train station, walked about 75 feet to the door, checked in, walked another 50 feet onto the train and sat down. No checked baggage, no lines, no hassle. Just easy. No waiting at the other end for baggage to be unloaded. No 3-mile hike from the gate to baggage claim. I think it takes less time overall, and Union Station is smack in the middle of downtown Chicago, so its easy to get anywhere from there!

As far as sticking to my plan; I didn't. Shame, shame. I didn't eat excessively, probably only ate twice a day, but the meal choices weren't very good, and I ate a donut, several bagels, and pasta. Needless to say, I'm up on the scale. I did, however, walk a gagillion miles while we were there, so I'm pretty sure I was burning some calories.

But I'm glad to be home, and ready to resume the plan.

Tonight, I'm back to my C25K running, and I had a healthy lunch: apple, plum, pineapple-orange juice, about 2 oz of cashews, and 1/2 slice of pumpkin bread.

Tonight, well....I'm hunting for a healthy recipe for pork tenderloin right now...I'll update later. Plus I want to catch up on what everyone else has been doing, so I'll be back later tonight....


  1. Hi!! Welcome back ;-0
    You know what…I also totally fell off for 2 days, ugh but like you said whatever!!
    Let’s just get back on it right?! How’s the C25K going? I’ve totally fallen off of that one, I don’t know why it seems kinda hard.. I was just jogging a straight 6 mins and then walking the rest of the time but maybe I’ll pickup on week 3 again.
    Have a great day!

  2. Hi! Just wanted to say thank you for adding me to your blog roll :)

    Good for you for getting back on the wagon!
