Another good day!
Wow, I feel like I've been saying that a lot lately...
I guess that isn't too much of a bad thing.
My pants fit so much better today!!!
The past few weeks I've had to travel to work with them unbuttoned. I've either had to unbutton them all together or I could only button one button and sit down kind of comfortably. Well, today I kept them buttoned ALL DAY, even while sitting down, EVEN ON THE DRIVE HOME FROM WORK! TMI? IDK, its kind of embarrassing to talk about in front of other people, but I know you guys of all people would understand the most.
So that was exciting.
I like not weighing lately. Its kind of freeing. I know what I'm doing is working because I can feel it not only in my energy, but in my clothes, which don't lie. I don't think I'm going to weigh for a while.
Today's food went well.
I had my usual berries and greek yogurt for breakfast.
Snack was wheat thins with peanut butter (which I kind of regret because together they are an almost 300 calorie snack--its very filling, but also very calorific).
My co-worker asked me to get lunch at a salad place down the street so I agreed even though I totally regretted it. I got my usual "Vineyard" salad (spring mix plus spinach, sunflower seeds, grapes, blue cheese, golden raisins, and honey balsamic vinaigrette--it used to come with candied pecans, but apparently they changed the menu and jacked up the prices--I guess I can't be too surprised). Well, the reason I regret it is because it was WAY overdressed--I felt like I was eating Salad Soup. They haven't updated the nutrition information online since they changed their menu, so I couldn't even really track it accurately. Without the candied pecans, I had no idea how many calories I had eaten. Since the salad was overdressed, I decided to just take the numbers from the website and call it even (even though I'm kind of frustrated that I really have no idea--I could be as much as 100 calories off...and when you're calorie goals are 1200-1500 per day, 100 is a lot!) So that was a little frustrating. Plus I spent way more calories on lunch today than I normally do. I usually like to save my calories for dinner or snacks, but that's okay. Its just one time.
Dinner was chicken and rice. Not that great because I couldn't eat much. I didn't have much time to think about how deprived I felt after dinner because we went downstairs to watch the Fireman's Parade go through our village. It was awesome and my great grandfather was in it. He was a volunteer firefighter for decades--he's 88! They honored him at a banquet a few weeks ago and asked him to ride in the parade and he agreed. My eyes filled with happy/proud tears when I saw him--he is such an amazing man. He not only volunteered for the fire department, but also the local ambulance, as well as in hospital. He has over 30,000 hours of documented volunteer experience. Plus probably another 20,000 hours of undocumented volunteer experience. He is such an amazing man. I am so proud to call him my great grandfather.
After we visited with my great grandfather after the parade, my husband and I walked over to check out the carnival. Its been raining ALL DAY today. The LPGA is in town and it rained so much that they actually cancelled the first day! So the carnival wasn't very busy and it was a little muddy--which I don't mind because our parking lot is the municipal parking lot right next to where the carnival is in the village and that means less people to fight for parking spots! I almost thought about buying a couple of cones for my husband and I, but I didn't bother. That's the price we pay for choosing this apartment. Besides, the parade and carnival are only once a year. Although Spencerport Canal Days is coming up, too. Oh well, its totally worth living here. I absolutely love it!
Wow, I'm talky tonight! Lots going on I guess. Tomorrow is my 2nd allowed "Eat Over My Calorie Limit Without Feeling Guilty Day" of the week. I am allowing myself 2 per week. I think that's a good start.
We just got our schedule for the rest of our games for the rest of the season!
Have a great night!
