I managed to do pretty well today (so far) despite the fact that we went out for dinner. I had one of those 550 and under calorie dinners at Applebee's and stuck with water since I still had to go home and work on my paper. The only problem is that I've had to drink an inordinate amount of coffee just to focus, and between that and the stress of writing the paper, I've had a really hard time not reaching for extra snacks. I'll probably be up another few hours yet too, so I'm not out of the woods just yet on that front.
I did actually manage to get the right amount of protein, carbs, and fat for the first time ever though, so that was cool.
I did the pushup and crunch tests too. It was pretty awful, but better than I expected. I managed 17 pushups and 18 crunches. Not great, but it could have been worse. I honestly expected maybe 3 pushups (have I mentioned those aren't my favorite? Cause those aren't my favorite). I think I'll work on that. Maybe.
I did my 30 minutes on the elliptical. I had planned on going for a walk, but walks are kind of tricky to plan when you've got work to do and the weather to contend with. The elliptical's cool though. It's always there, and I can listen to audiobooks while I use it.
Anyway, that's pretty much it. Accountability check and all that, right? (Well, that and I really, really, really don't want to read anymore about benthic macroinvertebrates right now, lol).
I hope you all have had a great day!
