Consumed 1298 cals today.
Took a nice long walk with my husband and Roxy this morning. I then spent the rest of the day shopping and wrapping. I ended up at the mall. It took me 1 hour to get out of the parking lot when I was done! There is only a couple ways out and it was packed. I did good with my eating today. I had a small lunch before I went shopping, stopped at a chinese place around 1:30 when I became hungry and had steamed chicken, broccoli and carrots (no rice), and I ate a yoplait yogurt I had packed in my cooler at 5 while I was sitting in a line of cars trying to get out of the mall! It held me over good until I got home and made dinner.
I am just sitting down now after my long day - it's 9:40 at night. I only have a couple more things to wrap, I can't do any more tonight. My parents used to put our presents under the tree unwrapped Christmas Eve after we went to sleep. My husband wanted everything wrapped for the kids as they grew up. I have no idea why I agreed to it - I am the one who ends up wrapping! AND I am not sure why I am still doing it - my "kids" are 23 and almost 21!! I do like wrapping Roxy's - she LOVES unwrapping her presents - it's a nice workout for her!
Tomorrow I have to run out to the butcher and pick up Christmas dinner. We bring my mother-n-law over for dinner on Christmas. I am serving filet mignon (grilling), steamed shrimp, steamed broccoli, mixed fruit and beek brisket (a gift from my bff in Texas). My mother-n-law is bringing mashed potatoes. I am going to pick up a dessert from a local bakery. We are going to go visit my great Aunt and cousins before dinner - this menu should be easy to put together when we get back.
I hope you had a great day and are ready to enjoy the weekend.
