Bad me... my favorite cheese puffs took over last night... so over the calorie limit I went. But today is a new day!
I have eaten lunch and I am at 2 fruit servings and 3 veggie servings already! I brought a salad with a bit of pepper jack cheese, turkey and dried berries with carrots & hummus on the side and an apple for dessert.
I had my usual breakfast of banana, a carb and a yogurt with coffee. I am looking at having one of the rolled cookie stick things... they are only 50 calories.
I also reset my goal to drop from 152-142 by June. I also need to get my feet on the treadmill. But last night was honestly the first evening I have just sat in a month without cleaning something.
I did get up to see the kids' mess in the kitchen from their gaming session last night... ARGH! Papers, soda cans, remains of snacks, pens, pencils, dice and other debris all over the table. And they are all over 17. Some are nearly 30... and they just seem to have a problem cleaning up after themselves. Torks me off big time. We need to the daughter and her husband to launch so they can learn to take care of themselves and each other without leaning on us and taking us for granted.
Adjusting adjusting. I am ready to have an empty nest. This is very hard after a year of living on my own and keeping things (generally VERY neat) as I liked.
Tonight! On the treadmill. The good news is that the new part to fix the incline is on its way to us, so we may actually have full functionality soon-ish, but not before my 5K.
It is looking like it will be in the mid-30s on New Year's Eve for the run. I still have to work most of that day, so I will be coming to work in my running gear with carbs for loading. I just get to leave early so I can drive back home, park and otherwise get situated. Purple will be the color of the day for me! (It's my favorite and makes me happy.)
Let's go for getting the goals met today: only one sweet carb, 5+ f & v, lots of water (8+), TREADMILL run..., control of evening snackage... OK! Let's Do This Thing!
UPDATE: I managed to stay in calories, and did my treadmill run... I had a few more small sweets, but didn't overdo it. Met f & v and water goals. I will chalk today up to success!
