Got way out of my comfort zone this evening taking my mom places. First we went to a party where I did not know anyone, then to a play at the local college. I don't do very well with small talk when I am with people I know, much less with complete strangers. I tried, but the last 45 minutes I pretty much hid in a corner. (We were there for over 2 hours.) One good thing was that they had good food. I think I forgot a few things when I was tracking it, but I mostly stuck to healthier choices... mostly. The play was okay. It was written and performed by college students. I thought they did a pretty good job. It was a long night though. I am going back to my parents' house tomorrow for lunch. We will be having fish, as I suggested a lighter meal after last week's pasta with cheese sauce.
My weight is fluctuating pretty significantly. But my clothes still fit, so reality is okay whatever the scale says. This morning it said I weighed 7 pounds more than yesterday morning. I doubt I gained 7 pounds of fat over the course of a day!
I kept to my reduced mileage today and my feet still ached. Arthritis is no fun. I don't have it bad, but it is in my feet, so the constant wear of walking sometimes makes it feel as if someone is trying the break my feet in half. Unpleasant. I am lucky though that that is the worst of my pain. I have friends who deal with much worse on a daily basis.
