Does being Mother's Day give me an "excuse"
Sunday, May 12, 2013
I had a feeling today I would either be way under or over my calorie intake for the day. Well I was over, so no big surprise. My husband and I took a day trip to Lake Geneva for a boat ride out to Black Point House, the newest Historical Site for Wisconsin. Because we had breakfast at home early, I had a can of V8 vegetable juice on the drive up. The boat left the tour dock in Lake Geneva at 10:30 AM; we arrived at the Black Point House at 11:15 AM. We had 128 stairs to climb from the dock up to the home; we toured the main floor and second floor of the home. I was sorry that we were not able to tour the third floor even if the only difference was a seventh bedroom, which the second floor did not have. The only thing that could be brought into to home was water, which we had learned when we made the reservation, so as part of the reservation we had a box lunch for each of us to have on the return boat ride back to the Lake Geneva boat docks. After touring the home, we toured the grounds outside. It was a fabulous two and a half hour tour. My box lunch was a roast turkey breast sandwich on whole wheat (the mayo was on the side, which I did not use), an oatmeal chocolate chip cooked and 20 ounce bottle water. I knew the calorie count on the cookie alone would “throw me over “my calorie count. My excuse was that I had climbed lots of stairs, outside and inside the home and it was Mother’s Day. On the drive back home I had an orange and bottle water. For dinner I had just about another two oranges and a slice of liverworts. No after dinner snack today. If I am “suppose to feel bad, or guilt” I don’t, I made a conscience decision for my eating choices. It was a good day for me.
