Road Trip was alright, calorie-wise!

Sunday, March 20, 2011

So, the road trip wasn't bad! Started out great. Filled up on Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal for breakfast and drank a lot of water on the trip. Stopped at McDonald's for lunch and I had a grilled chicken salad with water. Then, there was another unscheduled Taco Bell stop and I actually resisted and got nothing...because I figured I didn't need second lunch when I knew my evening was going to be a challenge (stadium food and alcohol). It was pretty hard sitting in the car smelling Taco Bell, but that moment passed and I was OK. At the bout, I caved and ate nachos...but only ate half because they were kind of gross. Still, those packed a 650 calorie punch. Blech. At the after party, I had THREE Smirnoff Ices, which added up to 750 calories. I thought it was all over for me when I logged everything this morning. But no!!! I also danced (like crazy, high energy, sweat pouring off me dancing) for at least 30 mins, which BURNED 500 calories. So, I ended up UNDER my calorie limit! Sweet!

Today was not as great...but I only went over by a couple hundred. Not nearly as terrible as I expected. I think I have lost weight from last week. I really do. I am excited for the weigh in tomorrow morning.

When I got home, I took the family on another 2 mile walk. And, I feel GREAT. Even after the extra calories today...who cares? My body feels awesome and that's all that matters to me right now. I am so happy!
