a good day with my mom.

Thursday, March 25, 2010

today was a good day with my mom. we went shopping. it was a long day but, since my mom and i live 40 minutes apart, it usually is.
a few things were different about this day than my normal shopping day.
*i wore my reebok easy tone shoes. so since i was walking all day, i hope to have used additional muscle.
*i didnt crash and pig out when i rolled in after four. i did what i had to do, hopped on the bike. after dinner, i hopped back on the bike.

all in all, i got in ninety minutes biking. i also went up and down the stairs like ten times today. and i cleaned out two cupboards i had been putting off. i really shouldnt put stuff off. its never as bad as it seems.

i had the first restful sleep last night that i can remember having in a long long time. i woke up at seven am, ready for the day. it felt AMAZING to not feel dead already. and, thats with me not getting to sleep till after one last night cos i couldnt sleep.

my mom, bless her, said as i was walking up to the door, that i look very different from last week. i would shrug it off and say she's just trying to boost my morale but:
a--she isnt like that
b--i DO look different from last week. i noticed it myself yesterday. and what i noticed, my mom commented on. my hips and thighs.
last week i felt like my thighs and hips stretch from here to guam but this week, i feel............dare i say it? thin.
as thin as a 230lb me can be.

i even wore my size 20s out today. and i can get in and out of them without unbuttoning or unzipping. my size 18s are another matter. but, im getting there.

my eating today. didnt track. but thats fine. i had an extremely light dinner--260 calories. so, i would say that i am in spark range.
my mom took me to the mongolian bbq today. i walked out eating less than i normally do. not on purpose, just satisfied for the moment.

my inhead goals are lofty for tomorrow. we'll see what i do.

i weighed in at 228lbs today and i changed my ticker a day earlier than normal cos i knew i would be eating out today.
