We made it to Friday! Woo hoo! Dance dance dance!
Yesterday I ended up having to work through lunch, and I got a grilled chicken buffalo salad to eat from the café on the fly (with no cheese, just veggies, and fat free honey mustard dressing instead of the boats of ranch/blue cheese everyone else was getting). BF and I went for a long hike after work, here is an artsy picture I took on the move:
Have you ever just worn the WRONG clothes for a workout? Last night my shorts kept riding up, my shirt kept riding up, I had chafing (sorry TMI) and my socks were ALL wrong and now I have blisters. It was awful! But I stuck with it and followed through to the end.
BF had been asking for a “Meat/Potato/Veggie” meal for a while. I finally caved and got him this premade roast thing. As I was cooking it last night I started losing my mind about it – it had so much fat on it and I swear there was this layer of grease all around it. It wasn’t like I was afraid to eat it – the darn thing just looked REALLY unappetizing to me. I took two bites out of it and couldn’t bring myself to eat the rest, so I added extra broccoli to my plate. We both had a glass of white wine with dinner. Man did it make me sleepy! BF expressed concerns that I didn’t want to eat something because of my food issues, I explained that it just didn’t appeal to me at all, I didn’t like it, so why force myself to eat it? I wasn’t restricting myself, rather I just wasn’t going to stuff something in my face that grossed me out. Not a bad thing, right?!
This morning I made myself my first hot breakfast at home – ever. I usually don’t trust my half-awake self near flames in the mornings but I had an avocado that was going to go bad, so I made myself this fancy egg beater/bacon/avo/salsa breakfast:
It was alright. I think if I had added some hot sauce I would have been happier. Noted for next time. I rode to work with the sunroof open – it is GORGEOUS again today! I really want to walk at lunch but I’m a bit worried about the blisters that I already have. We shall see. I know I need it!
Today is also the First Day of Summer AKA “National Wear Your Lilly Day”! Everyone says I should post close up pictures more often, so I’m listening. Here is me in my Lilly choice of the day:
Not sure why my hair looks blondish? Weird. I am a brunette!
BF and I are going to our nice dinner after work tonight. Tomorrow we are going to the pool and seeing some friends. Sunday I am going to National’s Stadium and rooting for the Rockies for the second year in a row. It is such a pain to get there, I usually drag my feet going anywhere near DC, but BF’s dad gave us good free tickets so we’re in for some baseball. I feel like I’m cheating on my O’s but only a little bit since I’m not rooting for the Nats. We went to this match up last year and I was the ONLY person in the stadium cheering for the Rockies in purple and black. At least I know that going into this time! As well as prepped for the abundance of bad for you and ridiculously EXPENSIVE food. Packin’ snacks!
Anyways, I have gotten 5 Walks in this week (potentially 6 today). Stuck to my packed foods except for yesterday’s mini diversion which I think I kept mostly on track. My weight has been up and down this week and I can’t really tell why but I’m hoping this all results in some progress. Right now I’m just thrilled that it is Friday & the weekend! ENJOY!
