100 Days of Fitness - Day 15

Posted November 22, 2010

This is the third week of our 100 Days of Fitness campaign and I'm pretty excited about how things are going. I spent 50 minutes on the basketball court Friday in an exercise of my choice. I took 150 jump shots and ran a few laps around the court. Friday night Cindy and I went to one of our favorite restaurants. I didn't feel guilty at all ordering a delicious salmon and bow tie pasta dish at Cafe Luna in downtown Raleigh.

The Christmas parade, a football game and a wedding kept me pretty busy on Saturday. On Sunday Cindy and I took Rufus on a long walk. Today I'm ready to get that heart rate up again. Plus, Coach Tara Wind has added a new element to the nutrition goals for the campaign this week: eliminate mindless eating. This can be a problem when I am watching ballgames on television. What about you? Do you ever do mindless eating and if so, how do you curb it? Please share your thoughts.

Tomorrow is weigh-in day. Stay tuned for the results.

    I try and eat simple filling snacks dependent upon what I'm craving. If it's sweets, I like low fat cereal or greek yogurt and if it's salty then nuts or trailmix. Your 100 days of fitness makes me want to try my own.
