Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :) In Finland, Valentine's Day is not just about lovers or couples but also about friendship. Friends usually do something fun together and get each other presents. So, Friends, I want to wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day and to thank you for all the kind words and endless encouragement you have shown me. I really appreciate it!
On another note, I didn't stay within my calories today. It's okay but I feel a little sad that I broke my streak :( We went out for dinner and even though I had a light lunch and a healthy dinner, I went over my calories. I thought: It's Valentine's Day, it's special and I want to enjoy this meal even if it puts me over my calorie limit for the day. I made a decision and I don't regret it. I'm going to go over my calories sometimes and it's okay as long as I eat healthy most of the time!
I'm really proud of myself for tracking my meals, taking the stairs and walking everywhere today! I walked for two hours and burned almost 600 calories. My glutes feel sore because I've been taking the stairs now: it's a great workout! :) I don't know why I ever used to take the elevator. We only live on the fourth floor! I have legs that work and that can carry me up the stairs, and it would be crazy not to use them.
Have a lovely Valentine's Day everyone! I'm going to work on my manuscript for a while and then I'm off to bed. xoxo
