Yesterday was a good day. You know the kind.. nothing really special about it, but everything seems to go along well. Work was busy, which is always good, keeping me occupied and my mind engaged (most important!). Nutrition was good, and I managed to be creative to get my steps/fitness in.
Bill's birthday was Thursday.
To celebrate, we could go anywhere he wanted for dinner. Well, he decided yesterday that he wanted to go to Killer Burger.

I've mentioned this place before. It's down in Hollywood, a neighborhood not far from ours. We've walked down there, had dinner, and walked home afterward. Of course, that outing left us moaning and groaning on the walk back LOL It was worth it though.
So, Bill wanted a Killer Burger, he was gonna have one!
We drove down to the restaurant and had some delish food. He ordered a Jose Mendoza, and I had a Fun Guy. Both came with french fries, which I knew was coming and had already decided I would eat. The burger, though, was a different matter. I pulled the top bun off, munched happily on the meat and cheese and bacon and onions and mushrooms and pickles! and discarded the bottom burger as well. Most likely I didn't account for the calories entirely accurately, but I imagine I'm close.
At first, I had a flash of worry that I'd get strange looks for not eating the bun but then thought 'screw it!' and ate my food the way I wanted. Ha!
I know, it doesn't seem like a big deal, but at times being self-conscious rears its anxiety-ridden head and pokes me hard. I pushed it aside though, and Bill and I enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere.
Once we were done, we mosey'd out to the car and I grabbed the knit hat I brought with, pulled on my gloves, tucked in my scarf, plugged in my headphones, smooched Bill and walked home.
No, the 1.9 mi walk in 31 minutes did not balance out the calories I had just consumed (and loved every morsel of) but it did meet one of my BLC training weekend challenge requirement for Friday, upped my step count, and gave me 31 minutes of 'me' time to walk and be a little blank-minded, simply enjoying being outside and moving, even if it was chilly.
