I felt the end of the week today. I woke in a crabby mood and could not stomach the thought of bouncing to jazzercise, so I didnít. I had to force myself out of bed to accompany my husband on errands, including a trip to visit our daughter. Of course, once I was up and out I felt much better, although still feeling guilty for not exercising. We ate out at a local restaurant chain which did not have any nutrition information on the menu so I had to make a smart decision on my own. I chose the best looking salad I could find knowing that the dressing would probably be high in calories, but it had fruit and chicken and celery and all that good stuff. I bypassed the bread though so I felt good about that. When I got home later I looked it up on the internet and they did have some nutrition information. I found out that the calories, although high, were not as bad as I expected. However the sodium pushed me over my daily limit, something that has not happened in awhile. All in all it wasnít a bad choice and I do feel that I am learning to make smart choices in the face of so much delicious sounding foods. I finished the visit with a walk around the neighborhood with my daughter. So at least I did get some exercise. I remember when walking was the only exercise I got; now I feel guilty when thatís all I do. But this journal is about my successes, not my failures. I feel I had enough successes today to make this a good day. Tomorrow will be better.
