I got up, did my stretches, showered, dressed, ate a low calorie, and nutritious breakfast, and was off to my last physical therapy session. I am so very grateful to the people that have helped me there.
My friend arrived at 10:30 AM. We went to Panera Bread for lunch. This is the meal I had planned to celebrate with. I had not checked the calorie count until now. Wow. I would have chosen differently. Panera now lists calorie counts on their menu boards...but I was so busy talking that I didn't even notice it. Anyway this was definitely a high calorie day.
The scale said I gained a pound this morning. Much of that should be gone by next week. I imagine there was more sodium in the dishes I had yesterday than I am used to. I really wasn't overly upset about it. I knew it was just a day. Today is just a day too. Tomorrow will be the end of all this unexpected partying. I feel very loved and cared for. I am blessed to be surrounded by wonderful people. So food is not as perfect as I would have liked but I am not giving up. I KNOW consistency is the key--- not perfection. So, hang in with me another day and then things will be normal again.
