yesterday i managed to consume 1936 calories, 72.5 grams protein - not bad! although i was low on vitamins d & e, as well as iron & potassium. need to work on that.
i walked a total of 8 km according to my math (9.8 km according to the pedometer in my mobile), for a total of 2593 calories expended through the day. so i should be eating more i guess to keep from getting too thin/allow me to build up my muscle, but i'm hoping an appetite will come with more exercise.

i am going to start tracking my intake and because it is actually
reasonably uncold, i think i am going to attempt the 6 km walk home
today. and i may stop at curbside on the way to check out helmets. just
maybe. didn't do tai chi this morning; after a five-day break, it was
enough to just get out of bed!
also working on bringing fruit to work as a snack. the problem is that,
with the braces, i find a lot of things difficult to chew. apples, for
example, are definitely off the list! today i brought a banana and an
orange (basically i let my organic box tell me what to eat) for snacks,
and some lobster soup for lunch.

1. wake up at the same time every day. it seems like a silly thing, but i really think it makes a difference. the kiddo will be doing karate on the weekends at 9 o'clock, so no more sleeping in and making mondays more miserable than they already are.
2. practise tai chi every day. it doesn't take a lot of time, especially since i haven't learned all 24 steps yet, so no excuses!
3. get off the bus. public transit is endlessly frustrating, and i could/should be walking or bicycling to work.
4. get more nutrients from food sources. i shouldn't be relying so heavily on supplements. sometimes i am very good about tweaking my diet so that if i don't get enough vitamin e one day, i'll eat more the next; lately, i have been off the wagon.
i think that's enough? do i need more resolutions? anyone else think of resolutions yet?

i think it's time to look for a new doctor - unless i can encourage her to fire her incompetent staff? i am definitely never going to shoppers drugmart again. they always disappoint.

a woman my age is supposed to get 7-8 servings of fruit and veg, 6-7 servings of grains and breads, 2 servings of dairy, and 2 servings of meat and proteins.
i got 1 serving of fruit, 3 servings of grains, 1 1/2 servings of milk, and 1 serving of meat.

of hours on friday night at a craft show, standing up all day sunday
making jam and relish and mincemeat and eggnog, carrying my 45-pound
little guy around a gravel lot for an hour monday night to see the
holiday train, and then having a 13-hour day with added commute
yesterday) i am pooped, officially. my foot was crying last night, and
my back is killing me. i am just wrecked! i think i need to spend a
couple of nights with my foot propped up or soaking in epsom salts or
the good news is i am pretty much on schedule to get most of the crap
stuff done before the holiday season is really in full swing.
the bad news is i still have to paint the living room!
