I thought I was going to go over my calorie range again yesterday. D*mn office meetings anyway. We had another one, and they had the big cookies again. Sigh. I waited until the end then sauntered by the platter. Stinkin' coworkers couldn't be bothered to finish off all the cookies, so there were plenty left. I felt duty-bound to take one.
What? Is that a little too dramatic? Ok, fine, you're right. There was no duty there, just craving. And you'd think I'd learn! I ate the thing back at my desk and mostly.. sorta.. kinda.. enjoyed it. It was alright. It left me feeling somewhat cravey though. Not crazy (that's a normal state here, don'tcha know!?) but wanting more sugar and flour and crunchy sweet stuff.
I resisted, had a pear instead, and finished off my at-work eating with a string cheese. It was just right, and held me over as I headed to OHS to walk the kennel kids. I know I go on about them, but they're just SUCH lovies and make my day. Yes, my own kids are just as much lovies and snuggies and precious to me, even moreso, but the kennel kids are just extra special.
I realized my legs were pretty tired about the third or fourth trip back up the path. Roxanne can tell you I'm not a big fan of hills - I can do them fine, I just like to do them slowly (she does NOT have a slow gear in her body LOL) and this path is no different. The dogs, on the other hand, mostly like to go loping up the grade. At one point, I must admit, I was tugged up the hill by a little dachshund/mix! Oy!
Bill is settling into walking very nicely, so while he finished up walking a couple of kids an extra round, I spent kennel time with a few others. I brought out the brush and got positive reviews for my efforts LOL imagine a wiggling behind and little legs stretching to push back into the bristles for moooooorrrrrreeeeee!
All in all, a good evening with the kennel kids then home we went for dinner and puppie nuggles. Instead of cooking anything, I finished off the leftover chicken and veggies. It's probably a good thing I don't report on what Bill eats daily - you'd turn me in for spousal neglect. No matter how much I nag.. erm.. remind him he needs to eat healthily as well, he doesn't. He had a peanut butter and jelly sammich for lunch, and a peanut butter and jelly sammich for dinner.
I offered to make him something, but he wasn't interested. I'm telling you, this walking thing is great for quelling an appetite! Anyway, perhaps that should be one of my new goals - get my husband to eat a healthy balanced amount of food each day.
Ah well. This is my Friday this week
so I have another three days off!
We're kennel-kidding early tomorrow morning, then I'm getting my hairs cut one last time before the Half (I'm planning on letting it grow out), then hopefully doing some menu planning and grocery listing.
Saturday I've asked Bill if he'd like to come with me to check out the trail we'll be on for the Multnomah Falls Trail race at the end of the month!
Sunday we'll meet other OHS volunteers for a mulch-spreading party to beautify the trail area and then probably hitting up the grocery store and seeing about getting ready for the week.
Inbetween all of that, our own kiddies will get dragged around the neighborhood repeatedly to wear the lil boogers out.
Hopefully it won't be too hot here over the next several days. We've got stuff to do! And, I'm determined to not let weekend eating get the best of me. I'm going to make a point to stay on track, and on plan, as much as possible!
