Cat .75, Chinese Buffet .25...

Saturday, September 28, 2013

I'll give the devil his due... I did find myself at the Chinese Buffet. I went in with the intention of just moderating what I eat a little bit. I knew I wasn't going to do well, but less bad, hopefully. I ended up doing about half less bad, maybe more. I had about 1/2 the food I would normally have eaten, and part of it was fruit. It wasn't *good*, and I'm sure I didn't stay within my calorie range, but I did BETTER THAN I WOULD HAVE, and I consider that a massive success.

Also successful was the evening after the Chinese. I did not take an already-blew-it attitude and eat everything I could shove in for the rest of the day. I had the Chinese, much less than I would normally have had, and then I was done. I came back home and drank my water, and had nothing else to eat til normal snack time Major win!

And in other news... The Buddy and I are gonna do a 2.5 mile Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. It's exactly 2 months from today, so I have 2 months to go from walking 1.25 miles to walking 2.5. I am totally confident I can do it! Tomorrow is the first training walk with The Buddy. We walk every Sunday morning, and including tomorrow, we have 9 walks before the Trot. I'm SUPER excited. I have always wanted to do one, but have never gotten the chance. The Buddy and I are so gonna rock that Turkey Trot!

Otherwise, nothing exciting today. I didn't workout, but I wasn't planning to. Today was my day off. So nothing much to report. Now I'm watching the Buckeye game, and pretty much on the edge of my chair. Hope everyone has had a great Saturday!

  Sounds very positive: appreciate your sharing all this cause it is so true: we make a little progress every day, not perfection, but progress. Being able to realize this is the win.
