Saturday was another good but busy day. I spent a few hours cleaning/picking up the house. Watered the plants. Did some laundry. Then my son and I got ready to head over to my friend's son's birthday party.
I love my friend, but she told me her friend's son wanted airsoft guns and supplies for his birthday. I didn't really know what those were, and in honesty I didn't want to buy him stuff that could hurt himself or others so I just gave the boy cash so his mom can take him shopping. I don't know if I am overprotective, but I just don't think 9 years old is old enough for these things. I am not judging. This family is in to guns and shooting. But anyway, I digress....
The kids and adults had fun. I did NOT have cake or icecream, nor did I want it. The kids played and had fun, which makes me really happy. When I first bought my home in 1998, my oldest was almost 3. The neighborhood had quite a few kids for her to play with. By the time my son was born in 2003, there was (and is) no one near for him to play with. I wish we were in a more kid friendly neighborhood.
I came home, worked out with some weights for some upper arm ST, did some cardio and elliptical work while watching some movies and while my laundry continues to wash itself.
After workout was shower, jammies, and some chick flicks. Aww. So nice, as I was tired from working out, cleaning, running around the fair on Friday.
Nutrition wise, I made good on my plan to eat more. I have no other ideas to try at this point but to up my calories in an attempt to unstick myself. I mean it when I say that my deficits were more than 1000 calories a day. I have had dieticians tell me that for my weight, it is not good. So, grudgingly, I ate 2175 calories on Saturday with over 200 grams of protein. I am shocking my body into compliance. I have to try something, because I am determined to reach my goal. I would like to lose 30 pounds by Christmas. That is like 6 pounds a month. I am trying really hard to do it.
Anyway, that was my Saturday.
