Rain, Rain, Wonderful Rain!

I chose two inspirational quotes for today. I read many great quotes and short stories throughout the day, but I felt these two really went along with our challenge.
The question should be, is it worth trying to do, not can it be done---Allard Lowenstein
The best motivation comes from within---Michael Johnson
I am glad I have quite a few cardio minutes built up because today, although I kept pretty busy inside the house, I didn't do much that got my heart pumping more....only a few minutes of cardio. I may try to do some more before going to bed. )It has been raining pretty much all day and when I say rain, let's just say at times it was downright pouring!) I'm not complaining....we need the rain! Just after midnight I jogged around our computer room for 3 minutes. That's what I did when I couldn't sleep. That, and played Farkle!!
I have written down what I have eaten today.
2 Multi-grain waffles with minimal syrup and margarine
8 oz 2% milk
1 tostado (corn tortilla, thin layer of refried beans, lettuce, cheese & salsa)
8oz caffeine free diet coke
10 baby carrots w/approx. 1 teaspoon Ranch dressing
2 slices thin & crispy crust pepperoni pizza
salad with Ranch dressing
8oz hot chocolate
32oz water and counting
I hope everyone on this challenge is enjoying it as much as I am. I have lost 3 pounds so far.

What can I say besides....Way To Go! When we lived in an apt. in Rancho San Diego, I use to walk laps in the apartment. Kinda crazy, but it got me moving AND I could still watch TV. LOL (This was before the treadmill just in case you were wondering Kelli!)
