Lazy Sunday, storing up energy for Monday...

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Today has been unbelievably unproductive. I didn't get out of bed until literally 4 pm. I rolled around all day and didn't really sleep, but I didn't officially get up til 4. And I only got up then because I shamed myself into it. I could easily have laid there and slept off and on for the rest of the day. "Zero energy" would be the best way to describe my mood right now.


Dinner with my friend last night was good. I felt enormous, though. He and I are about the same height, he's a pretty short dude, and I outweigh him by much more than I would care to guess. It made me feel huge. I outweigh dh by a lot, but he's 7" taller than me, so I don't feel so big. Next to my friend. Whoa. We had a nice time, though. Here's me, just before I left to meet him...

Calorie wise I ended up not doing half bad! I had a glass of red sangria, which was really really good. Then for dinner I had a chicken Caesar salad, with dressing on the side, and I used very little of it. The chicken was literally as big as the plate, but I only had about 1/3 of it and I brought the rest of the piece home to dh. No dessert, and no bread. We just talked and sipped our drinks and enjoyed it.

After dinner I came back home and proceeded to do nothing for the rest of the evening. Dh and I half-watched some football, and then late we decided to watch The Great Gatsby, which I loved, as I knew I would. I ended up having some frozen burritos later, but that was all I ate for the rest of the evening, so all things considered it wasn't so bad.

I'm gonna spend the rest of the evening focusing on getting my mind back in the zone for tomorrow. I've slacked all weekend, and it's time to stop slacking and get back to work. I see my PCP again on Nov 19th, and I'm setting the goal to weigh 257 {on my scale} by then. I weighed 262 the other morning. I'm hoping to lose 5 lbs this month. So I gotta get my $hit together and get going if I'm gonna make my goal.

I was planning on joining the gym tomorrow, but due to unforeseen {aka, expensive} circumstances, I'm gonna hold off one more week. It's supposed to be fairly cold this coming week, but only rainy one day, so I can get out there and get in my workouts. Dh is on vacation this week so I might be able to get him to join me for a walk or two also.

And cooking. Must. Cook. This past week I've had miserable PMS and haven't felt like standing in the kitchen cooking, so we keep eating bad food from bad places. But that's all over now, so I have no excuse. We have the food bought, the menu planned, and I just gotta get my lazy @ss in the kitchen and cook it.

Hope everyone has had an awesome weekend!

    sounds like my weekend - sleepy, not doing much, beat down. Went out on a photoshoot with mk on Saturday but beyond that I've done pretty much nothing for 3 days - until tonight when I finally did some excercise.
    Sounds like you had a good time out!

    Hey, good to see you! I was checking out what you've been up to lately since I haven't been reading/blogging so much. Never apologize - just be like a boomerang, always coming back! Bleah to PMS, cheers to you for planning!
    You need to stick around the next couple of weeks to give me strength to resist raiding my kids' Halloween candy stash :)
