So maybe this past weeks weigh in wasn't a good one (not worried) but I have made progress mentally and physically.
Yesterday my husband and I went to one of the race car tracks in our state, wouldn't call it "local" since we still drove almost 2 hours :). Well I was not prepared with healthy snacks because I hadn't gotten to the store yet. When my hubby stopped at the convenience store before we hit the road I asked him to get me a v8 juice, so I knew I would have some kind of veggies for the day, no not the ideal ones but better than nothing! Although I went over my calories for the day by a few hundred, in the past I could have easily gone over by a few thousand! I drank water all day with the exception of a few sips of sprite to wash down lunch and a root beer soda with dinner...I haven't had root beer in awhile so I enjoyed it but i could have gone back for a refill and didn't. I split fries with the hubby at lunch and the only option (I found out later there were more options if I had just kept walking) was to have a quarter pounder I did have cheese with mine because I can't eat a burger without it...I didn't finish it...i think there were about 3 or 4 bites left which my husband of course finished in like 1. For dinner simply because it was late and we didn't want to wait to eat we went to burger king and I had a small fry and a grilled chicken sandwhich...I think I was tired from the long day because I didn't even think to not eat the bun...I thought about getting a salad but none of them sounded like something I would like so i went with the next best thing.
And to top it all off I took over 19000 yes that is right 19 thousand steps and sat down for maybe an hour all day with the exception of the ride, for someone who sits all day at work I was pleasantly surprised I lasted. Today I thought I would have been hurting but I am not too bad a little achy and my knee is starting to bother me but I am still hitting the gym. Probably won't do much strength today but I will try to do my usual Sunday routine.
