Yesterday was one of those days where I ended up just about a half beat off of my usual rhythm of life. That is to say, when I got up from my desk last night, I pulled my keycard that is normally clipped to my jean pocket, off and tossed it on my desk, and walked out the door wearing my work reading glasses.
Ordinarily, I leave my work reading glasses on my desk and take my keycard home with me so I can get into the garage the next morning! Bill and I looked all over the house for that card this morning to no avail. I got lucky and pulled in behind another lady who usually gets to the office at the same time I do, so I slipped into the lot after her and managed to meet her at the elevator as well. She works on my same floor, so she badged me in to the floor as well.
Geez. O. Pete!
On the plus side, we had dinner with the family to celebrate Ms. Kyla turning 19. We ate at Newport Seafood Grill and as predicted, I had the Seafood Cobb Salad. It was very yummy with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and quite filling. Apparently we eat slow, because Bill and I were the last ones to finish our meals. Ah well. I had to estimate the calorie count for the salad since NSG doesn't provide nutrition information. Even if it was way more caloric than the estimate, I imagine I was still ok and well within my range.
They brought an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins' for dessert, and I had a slice. The slice was maybe 1/4 inch thick. I removed the cake portion, and allowed myself to enjoy the ice cream and frosting. It had caramel. MmmmMMMMmmmmMMMM!
I figure it was a nice way to send off the month of January because I'm going Sugar/Sweetener Free in February baby!
Afterward, we went home and Bill showed Kyla the Karmann Ghia he's restoring for her. He's a few weeks out from having it done so she can officially have it. When he's done, her car will look very much like this!
It's way too cute and she's in love with it already. We're excited at the prospect of having our garage back after X number of years LOL
They stayed late (for us) so I simply trundled off to bed, avoiding any snacking of any kind.

Since I wasn't very active, I didn't mind being below my range. I'll probably end up slightly under my range again for Thursday, but will again be lightly active.
For being off-kilter yesterday, I do believe I did not bad. I wish I could tell you ~WHY~ right now, my game is working for me and I'm winning at it for the most part. I have no explanation for it, other than it's the right time for me and I'm taking advantage of it. I hope this lasts for a long long while.
