We spent a quiet, non food Christmas this year - no temptations. All of the family is visiting family away and we had an early gift exchange a week ago, so it was just Rick and I this year. We did meet our son and went to church on Christmas Eve right from work, so hungry after church. Most places were closing early but we found Japanese food - hot noodle soup. It sure filled us up.
Then on Christmas Day we just took it easy and I put together a new recipe for Spinach Quiche - only 160 calories for one (1/8 pie) piece. Check it out on my page. It rained all morning, It finally stopped and we decided to drive to Monterey Bay. It was a beautiful sun shiny day but cool and windy, We walked along the wharf at Monterey - not many people and free parking - it was great. We also drove along the coast between Monterey and Carmel getting out to walk along the beach. So we got some exercise and didn't eat all day - we looked for Italian in Carmel but most places were closed and we decided to drive on home. It was a good low calorie day - feeling good about getting through the day.
Not so good the next day. I worked and it was the day we celebrated Christmas at work since everyone was there. It was a busy shopping day - my day started at 6 AM! I was hustling around customers. The staff decided to order breakfast at Denny's I was so hungry I said whatever anyone wants I go along with. Well they went for a Grand Slam for everyone. I didn't eat the pancakes - took them to my husband, ha ha. Of course I wasn't hungry for lunch and when dinner time came - we decided to go out. We ate at a new Mexican place - big burrito - Oh it was so good. I should have stopped at half but thought - it is so good.
Well after I got home and figured what it was, it over 2000 for the whole day - if I figured right - so I guess you could say my Christmas day was the day after. lol Of course we got back to the gym the next day and back on track with food. I just counted that as my high calorie day.
I got on the scales after Christmas Day morning was 145 (the scale was tipping on the under side of it) wow! I recorded a conservative 146 which made me at a 25lb total loss since beginning. But then the next day after the burrito in the evening 147 ouch! Oh the roller coaster of weight loss. LOL
So still keeping on - still losing every week - - -
