Cals consumed - 1130 (Saturday)
Just getting a chance to hop on the computer and blog yesterday's events. I spent 4 hours in the afternoon going through all my clothes in my closet. I filled 5 black garbage bags up for good will -- I am still not quite finished. I also organized my clothes by size - I tried a lot of clothes on, got rid of the "bigger" ones. I had a good time!
Then, my husband, son and I went to dinner with friends. My son is 23 and hangs around us quite a bit. His girlfriend of three years is in pharmaceutical school - he doesn't see her much during the semester. His best friend is battling cancer - for the third time in his short 23 year old life! My son is moving to a townhouse 30 minutes away in about 1 and a half weeks. Not sure how much we will be seeing him after he moves. He doesn't like to waste money on gas, so I think we will be mainly driving over to see him. He is quite thrifty - unless it is computer stuff or gaming - which is why he was able to save quite a bit to buy a house.
Anyway, back to our night out. It was another "movie night" where we all go out to dinner, then back to a friends house to watch a movie in their media room. We went to a little italian restaurant. I had to study the menu when I got there because they didn't have one on the web. I went with the shrimp, broccoli, spinach and asparagus over linguine. I had them substitute the alfredo sauce for spicy marinara...I ate about 1 cup of the linguine, and all of the shrimp and veggies. It was very good. I sent about 2/3 of the pasta back. I also had balsamic vinaigrette on my tossed salad, and 1 1/2 glasses of wine. I had originally allotted myself 2 glasses (they were small), but when I drank 1/2 of the first one I got the idea to fill it back up and stopped after that one. I also drank 1 tall glass of icewater with it. The water worked out really good - I drank it instead of eating italian bread placed all over the table!! I did really good at our friends house afterwards, too. They still had a lot of halloween candy left, and everybody was digging in - except me and my husband.
So, I think going through the closet helped me stay strong last night. I don't have any clothes to wear if I gain weight, and I am looking forward to fitting into the clothes that are too tight right now.
For our SparkPeople live homework this week, we have to add some of our new goals to our vision board. I am going to take a picture of my favorite dress which is too tight right now and add it to the board.
I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!!
