Happy Tuesday all! It is SO FUN to see so many of you jump on the Stair Challenge and to add in your own twist to it. I figure if we can all find enough ways to add in activity every little bit adds up especially on the days when we cannot get in a “real” workout per say.
The building I work in actually has 16 floors and a 5 story parking garage. I have meetings all throughout the day on any of the given floors and I work on the 11th floor. Each floor has 2 sets of stairs so you really can get in a GOOD workout without even trying.
I was SO SUPER PROUD of the fact that I started off my day with an 8 story trek up (3rd to 11th) to my office then went back and forth to the 5th, 6th and 7th floors all day.
Then, I had a totally BLONDE MOMENT in the middle of the day when I was telling my co-worker about using the stairs all day. For some reason in my brain, I was so focused on not taking the inside elevator that I did not even think about the parking garage elevator.
OMG! I park on the 5th floor in the parking garage so Scooter has plenty of room…..now, about those stairs ~ I think I should start parking on the 2nd floor now or something LOL.
Tomorrow I will add in the parking garage stairs too ~ whew!
Breakfast this morning was grab and go ~ a little protein (Morning Star Veggie Sausage ~ 2 points+) and a banana.
Mid morning snacked on an egg
I actually took the time to pack up a delicious lunch of leftover soup, fruit, yogurt and snacks. But, all that went out the window when my co-worker mentioned Panda Express. The good news is my lunch is already packed for tomorrow
You all know I have an unnatural LOVE of Panda especially when I can check off my 5 a day plus healthy oils all in one meal!
Kung Pao Chicken, String Bean Chicken and Steamed Veggies for the Rice/chow mein….
All gets mixed together for one super huge veggie packed Chinese Food Bowl for only 11 points+!
I started with my FAVORITE simple salad with 1 Tbsp ranch, fork dipped (4 points+)
Today was totally a BREAD day and I decided I NEEEEEDED it
2 slices with 1 tsp REAL butter (3 points+)
The Husband and I shared their Spaghetti with meatballs (built in portion control when you share!) Our waitress was awesome enough to put it in our own mini pasta bowls.
1 ball with about 1 cup of pasta for 9 points+.
How did you all do today with the STAIR CHALLENGE?
No stairs are required ~ just pick one thing you can do to move more ~ take the stairs, park a block away, you name it.
