Jan 26 2012: Australia Day

5am wake-up again – still no need for alarm clocks… Heading to City of Gosnells’ Aussie Day Brekkie this morning, so will try to avoid eating until then.

Exercise:
Walked the dog on the established route, estimated distance covered = 1.78km, time taken 17 mins 25 seconds

A fair bit of walking done today – cleaning up the back yard and pool area, Aussie Day Brekkie and Aussie Day fireworks etc. in the evening.

Couple of dips in the pool – mostly just cooling off and messing with my son.

Pedometer step count for the day (as at 9:55pm) = 12,574

Diet:

Breakfast: Pint water before going on walk, another on return. At the Aussie Day brekkie – 2 sausages, 2 slices toast, 1 egg, half a large tomato, spoonful of baked beans. I cup orange drink.

Basically drank loads of water and cordial throughout the day as we were outside and it’s bloody hot at the moment 🙂

Lunch: Steak sandwich – BBQ’d steak, salad, tomato chutney. Half dozen or so polenta chips, 2 small italian sausages. Chargrilled veggies (capsicum, zucchini, egg plant etc.). 2 pints full strength beer (total alcohol consumption for the whole of Australia Day!)

Dinner: Picnic consisting of mini bacon muffin (weightwatchers, 1 point), 1 chicken portion (skin on), brown rice salad, tomato, mini passion fruit muffin/cake (weightwatchers 2 points) .

I may have missed a couple of things – not been at the computer all day – blogging this from memory!

Notes:

Overall I was pretty pleased at the way things went – most of the food consumed was healthy, I didn’t pig out (which I often can do with barbies, or at an event like Aussie Day). Felt I’d eaten plenty, didn’t feel hungry and kept the fluids topped up.

Have first sports injury following a bit of a humid sweaty walk this morning – inner thigh chafing. Fortunately we’ve got plenty of baby talc in the house lol.
