I'll let you both in on a secret *whispers* it's easy to do when it's the last peanut butter cookie. I mean, I hope that I would have had the self-control, but I can't say that I was consciously thinking I'll only have one. Now the two of you have inspired me to think that of myself. So the next time I find myself reaching for cookies I hope my brain will echo your compliments and I will live up to them.

Today's Workout:

5 miles on the elliptical in 69 minutes.
Bonus exercise: 1.5 hours walking around the convention center booths at the number pick-up for Bloomsday (12k on Sunday). Some of which involved carrying my 4 year old sister and giving her shoulder rides.

Today's Food:

Bowl of frosted mini-wheats and 1% milk

Post Workout Snack:
Cheese & Crackers

Fig-Balsamic Glazed Sirloin Kabob (one toothpick sized sample)
One dime-sized sphere of cookie dough flavored natural energy sample
Bottle of Safeway Pomegranate & Blueberry water
2 animal cookies
1 mini-powdered donut
1 cup brown Minute rice with cheese

Handful of peanuts and part of my chocolate Easter bunny

Leftover pizza
3 vanilla wafers
1% milk

    My favorite part of the chocolate Easter Bunnies are the ears. Not sure why they taste the best. Scott tells a story about how him and his sister and two brothers never knew chocolate bunnies had ears when they were young as I always ate that part! Hope you have a great weekend and good luck on Monday's weigh-in.

    You're doing great...and I laughed about the cookie! I needed that laugh, so thank you! It's still awesome that you only one because even though one was left, you could have went for something else as another snack and another. So you still showed tons of self control!

    It sounds like the Active 'more workouts' game might be worth having. I wondered about it, but when it came out, I wasn't really using that game much anymore. But from your description, there do seem to be some new and fun things. I might have to put it on my wish list.

    5 miles on an elliptical is a big deal. I don't know why, but it seems like the distance adds up so slowly on those machines. Much slower than a treadmill, even though I feel like I'm working harder on the elliptical, than when walking on a treadmill.
    Great job.
