I feel great today. Yesterday when I went to go walk in my local park. I realized I love fall!! It's perfect outside and the scenery to walk around the lake is just great I don't even mind even if I forget my headphones. Tonight I took my friend Tara out for a dinner. She picked my kids up for me after their football practices and brought them home for a few weeks, when my husband went out of town to work, and I get off later in the evening. They're 12 and 14; old enough to be by theirselves, but not old enough to really get anywhere by themselves. She told me for the few weeks she did this she would be happy if we got a night out somewhere that served food and beer. I was careful with my caloric intake today knowing I would go out later this evening. Now the day is through I am still within my calorie goal, I went over alittle with sodium, and sugar, but not enough to really amount to anything.....I am happy!! I splurged and had a loaded baked potato and it was sooo good I savored every bite. I planned my meal before going and I stuck to it!! I did have a mixed drink (that contained Vodka so calories and carbs were very low). I even had calories left over to eat a moderate sized piece of Pumpkin Pie my two sons made for me at their grandma's house over the weekend since it was my weekend to work at the hospital. It was also very good.....and now tomorrow back to my routine. I was proud of myself today, as even though it was not an "exercise"(being more than 10 minute workout day) I felt bored and instead of lounging around on the couch actually WANTED to go walk around the park....I even yesterday and today took the longer loop around the lake!!! GO ME!!!
