Late post and a bike ride proved the back stable again...for now

Later than normal I find myself posting today, partially because I was busy cooking all day (roasted a chicken and made 2 pots of chili chicken pepper soup) and partially just because I was outside most of the day and just didn't get to it until now, so here it is. My intake from yesterday was good coming in at 1500 on the nose and I did not exercise a bit because of the back, I figured I would give it a day more off before I got back into the exercising. It seemed to be what was needed to do the trick because I just got off of the bike 5 minutes ago and took a nice easy 20 minute ride and feel no discomfort at all in my back so we shall see what the morning brings, if it is no pain then I will resume the bike this week and put the push ups back into it starting next week. so it would appear that all is back on track as long as there is no pain in the AM, we will know soon enough.

Here is the menu from Monday.


9:15 AM
2 multi-grain english muffins 200
1 serving turkey pepperoni 70
2 wedges laughiung cow cheese 70

1:30 PM
1 can Progresso soup 120
1 80 cal roll 80
1 serving turkey pepperoni 70
less than 1 tbsp miracle whip 25

6:15 PM
2 gortons fish fillets 340
1 cup white rice 200
ketchup 20
salsa 10
light sourcream 20
1 dannon light and fit yogurt 60

8:00 PM
1 pear 85

9:00 PM
1 raisin english muffin 90
less than 1 tbsp jam 40

Grand total of 1500 calories for the day, and my back feels good enough to get away with a nice easy 20 minute ride that brought my heart rate up but not way up. intake is on par and I am hoping to have a drop in weight this week, so far its up from Fridays weight but the week is early so we shall see. thats all for the later than normal post I need to head upstairs for a shower, thank you for reading along with my journey.

As Ever


  1. Glad to hear that the discomfort and pain has subsided and that you were able to get back onto the bike! Busy cooking all day, eh? I think I may resume the cooking when the temperature outside doesn't make my house imbearable to be in in the first place, without the added heat of the stove or oven turned on!
    By the way: I could not find laughing cow cheese at the grocery store! I'll have to go to a different one and see if I can find it there...

  2. Thats GREAT that your back isnt bothering you so much now. Congrats on the bike ride. I keep trying to get motivated to ride my bike but then the heat kicks in and I weinie out.

    Have a SUPER day!
