For once, it was nice (70 degrees) when we started our walk this morning - I was hoping to get a long walk in because I kind of pigged out last night at a Mexican restaurant we went to with our friends - I can't resist chips and salsa! I ended up getting the taco salad (didn't eat the shell), but I'm sure it will show up on the scale this morning with the salt intake. Hence, the long walk.
Anyway, kept pushing Pups to keep going. I think she got tired before I did - ended up laying down twice, but we were almost done. Next time, I'll definitely bring her water.
Now, we are both going to take our morning naps......
Just went through some MORE clothes! I had pants that have been hanging that I haven't worn (even then they did fit me), and have packed them up for charity tomorrow. I did keep a couple that are part of a suit - I think the jackets still fit me ok - we'll have to see. I need to buy some new suits before getting rid of the old - otherwise, I'll be running out at the last minute to get a suit to wear to work the next day when I need it!
Anyways - it feels good! This is why I got rid of my old clothes - so the incentive was there when I didn't have clothes that fit that I woul d HAVE TO go buy some new things.
I won a 25% off your entire purchase coupon from Old Navy - I'll be heading there tomorrow to see what I can find.

So last night at about 8:30 pm I was starting to get hungry (again). I was fighting it - trying to figure out WHAT I could eat that was low calorie and fill me up. I ended up eating an apple. That is the first time I EVER had an apple in the evening. I was still hungry (probably should have waited the 20 minutes, but didn't) so then I had 2 cheese sticks. WHAT A GREAT LITTLE SNACK!
I have read about having an apple and cheese for a snack before, but didn't think they really went together. It's amazing how you try to get creative with your eating and you hit something that is just wonderful!
Anyone have any other combo snacks that you didn't think would work, but then were great together?

All vacation, I was worried about gaining weight - I didn't do too bad - I went up a pound, but I'm ok with that.
Now, back into the swing. I have one week before I get my blood work done again for the cholesterol check - not sure if I'll get to 160 by then, but I'll try.
While we were gone, I got a message from the OBGYN that I need to do a fasting blood test for them for the hormone blood work - GREAT! Obviously something came back on the original test that was done mid-day. I'll be going in on Thursday for that.
We did a LOT of walking with geocaching while on vacation. Somedays more than other.
Back to reality.......
