Sliding Downhill

Friday, August 02, 2013

That's me today. I started out really well but after lunch my eating has slid down the proverbial hill. I did have two coffees this morning, but I had made adjustments for that. What I didn't make room for in my calories for the day was the daymn mini Baby Ruth's and Butterfingers one of my evil co-worker (and really friend) brought in after lunch. Now I have to log them. And see where I stand tonight. But I'm thinking I need to hit the old Xbox (Your Shape Fitness 2012) or the treadmill at home. Even though I did 62 mins on the elliptical at lunch and walked 7,000 steps before that. emoticon It's just been one of THOSE days. emoticon beating myself up. I screwed up but I can now move on and do better the rest of tonight and beyond. One bright weight was down a tad this morning. emoticon But now we face the weekend and while I have been doing better on the's always a struggle. But I WILL do my BEST to make it though! emoticon

I walked the second floor at work this morning and I saw this part of a huge balloon though one of the windows. When I got to the far end of the building I saw this:

It landed in the open field across the street from my office. I thought it was way cool!

I updated my Facebook page with all the books I've been reading...yes even those semi-trashy ones. emoticon I see you shaking your head over there Calen!!! emoticon But a little alien (or Vampire, Werewolf, etc) romance never hurt a girl! emoticon There was some hard sci fi in there too. And hey..most of them were FREE for my Kindle app. emoticon

I think I'm going to try and find my "Before" pictures I took a long time ago and then take some 'Now" pictures and see it I can any difference between the two. I hope I can. emoticon

I made chili for dinner last night. Hubby loves my chili so he was happy. And there was enough left over for another meal so I popped that into the freezer. It's always nice to have something on hand that I fix fast during the week, Tonight..who knows what we'll have. emoticon

So that's my Friday. Not as successful as I'd like..but there it is. I hope yours is going better! And have a great weekend!

    You slid?
Well, get up, dust off, and back up that hill.
Because you can get to the top of that mountain!!!

    You CAN get through the weekend, GF! I know you can! Have you not ever been to a hot air balloon festival? They're so beautiful. We have a couple huge ones here. Too bad we don't live closer...sigh...

    emoticon I agree, a few Candy Bars is just a Bump NOT a Detour. You are doing too well with this Lifestyle Change to let a few Evil, Mini Candy Bars get you down.
The Balloon is Beautiful!! If they are giving rides we will have to sign up the next time I am out there.

    Sounds like you had a good day overall. I wouldn't let a couple of candy bars throw you off. I'll bet you can see a difference in your before and after shots!

I never was able to see my legs when I shave them, I've been going blind since I was in third grade...
