Still Hot

Still near the 100 degree mark today. Today has been a struggle because I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. I tossed and turned more than I slept. They say the hormone that creates the feeling of hunger is more prevalent in the system when one doesn't get enough sleep and I certainly feel that.

On the upside, I have completed 16 days of working out continuously. This morning I did an old Cindy Crawford workout DVD that I actually really like. It's a bit eighties in the style of workout, but it's a nice change and it isn't a high-aerobics workout. Tonight I'll do some treadmill work as well, since the Crawford workout isn't very long. And I had to skip the ab workout thanks to yesterday's core workout.

I think I'll make cucumber sandwiches for dinner. I really need to eat more veggies - only once in the past week I've met my goal of 35 grams of fiber per day. It doesn't help when I start the day with a bowl of Cap'n Crunch instead of Fiber One or oatmeal.


  1. i always love going back to old workout dvds, it keeps me more entertained because of the fun hair styles and leotards :-) great job on the 16 days straight that's excellent. they say after 21 days of doing something it becomes a habit, you're very close keep up the great work!!

  2. My late mother-in-law turned my kids on to sugary cereal (like the Cap'n Crunch you mentioned). GRRR. There was no turning back. But my partial solution to the problem is mixing the sugary cereal with a low-sugar cereal like Cheerios. There's still plenty of sugary taste in the mix and you don't feel like you've totally failed the test!
