Wednesday, better than Tuesday, got in a really good 60min workout, even enjoyed it. Calories are at 1,500 even and the pie chart is downright impressive. Although admittedly I had to eat 2 cans of tuna for dinner to balance out the unplanned Chex mix and watermelon I had for my afternoon snack. But now I feel full and content, and I'm working on the last jug of water, so I think I'll get all of that in as well.

Thursday calories were a little high, but under 1,600. Got in a really good trot on the elliptical, took the kids swimming and drank all my water. I have a couple of trouble spots, too many carbs on the pie 45%, and it's so hot that I'm dehydrated, retaining water and irregular, even though I threw down 84 ounces of water. I did however resist getting a double swirl cone dipped in chocolate at DQ. Which I have almost never resisted before...

Friday went fairly well workout-wise, did my workout in the morning but had to cut it short by 10 minutes. Then I took the kids to the zoo so there was a ton of extra walking. There was also a ton of extra food, up over 1,700 but none of the calories were anything really bad. I didn't pack any veggies or fresh fruit and ended up eating 4 low-fat granola bars throughout the day. Mental note for next trip, "momma needs a veggie bag" in the cooler. I also didn't get in all of my water.
Saturday was pretty good. My calories were at the upper end of my budget, but that isn't too bad considering that I picked raspberries and went out to eat. For my workout I spent 8 hours in the garden and got a little sun burnt and a lot grimy and sweaty. And I drank double my required water. So all in all a successful Saturday diet & activity-wise.
