Walking With a Purpose

I just wanted to post that Bob and I walked 36 minutes today. We walked a different area than usual so I wasn't sure how long it would take. I seemed to be asking him every 5 minutes how long we had been walking. When he told me 15 minutes and I knew we could turn around and head back to make it 30 minutes, I decided to keep walking a little farther to add on some time. It's a little warm out there today (and I may do more cardio later), but for now I will relax. I started writing down what I am eating/drinking today to give me more incentive and will add that in this evening.
Knowing I was going to post what I ate and drank today, it helped me to choose better. It doesn't look like I drank enough water today, but I'm not through drinking it for the night. Here is my list of food/drinks:
1 C Rice Krispies w/6oz 2% milk
1/2 cheese sandwich on oat & grain bread with lettuce and tomato
10 Lay's "Crisps"
1 1/2 C homemade chicken noodle soup
4 saltine crackers
1 1/2 navel oranges (yummy...sweet and soooo juicy)
12 oz 2% milk
12 oz lemonade
At least 48 oz water
All in all, I think I did ok today! With eating pretty good and a long walk, I am hoping I'll sleep better tonight than I did (didn't) last night!
