FPC Day 3

Last night after dinner I started getting terrible stomach pains. They've been coming and going ever since. I think it's from too much fiber, and the combination of half a head of cauliflower yesterday followed by Brussels sprouts must have sent me over the edge ;)  I was down a pound this morning, but that just puts me back at 118, so I still have those 2 stupid pounds to go.

Oh look, I hit all my nutrition goals for the day:

Today's workout was 35 minutes on the Arc Trainer. I do like that machine, but my feet both went completely numb after about 20 minutes (again). I burned 300 calories and was sweating like a pig by the time I finished. Then after dinner tonight I took Lucy for a 1.5 mile walk. My toe seems to be good! And at least when I walk (or run) my feet don't go numb. I can't wait to get back on the treadmill Monday!!!

Tomorrow is a rest day, and will most likely be the hardest day of this challenge for me. The moms are coming over and my mom -always- brings snacks and/or will take us out for dinner. When I say no to anything, she tells me I'm too skinny and need to gain about 10 pounds. Oh well, we shall see how it goes!
Wish me luck!

How's everyone else doing so far? It was another crazy day at work, so I only got to 3 or 4 blogs to look around. Tomorrow I'll be cleaning and then "visiting" but by Sunday I should be able to get in some reading time! Have a great weekend!

Glad your toe is returning to normal! And kudos on that food diary, wtg! :)

How's the tummy this morning? I've had that experience with too much fiber, not fun. :-(

Thanks Michele! Tummy is better but I still feel a little bloated. Gonna try to stay between 25-30 grams of fiber today and see if that helps.

I love the Arc trainer too! - depending on it for most of my cardio...I do think most of the caloric-burn estimates are overinflated, just like I had to bite my tongue REALLY hard when my yoga teacher bragged yesterday that we were going to burn "700 cal" doing 75 min of hot yoga!
I've been reading some really interesting research on Ray's blog:
