Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Day 49: Daily Report

I forgot to record my food as I ate today, so here's my food to the best of my memory:
  • bowl of bran flakes with milk
  • leftover fish burritos from last night (with fresh salsa, spinach, tomato, cheese, baja sauce)
  • a serving of leftover fiesta potatoes (trying to use up some taters)
  • at homeschool co-op: one piece of sushi and a few bites from a sampler tray of various foods
  • at home: smoothies with home-juiced fruits, yogurt, and spinach
  • about a dozen saltine crackers
  • leftover fish burritos and potatoes
  • 2 pieces of lemon cake: lemon cake mix made with leftover fresh juice (pineapple, orange, carrot), chickpea puree in place of oil, and eggs
  • about 70 oz.
  • 1 hour walk with the kids (at a good pace, they're good at walking fast)
Victories: Getting back on the horse and recording again.

Defeats: The second piece of cake.

Observations: I shouldn't be making cake. I adore using up leftovers!
