A little up and down over the last 24 hours. Yesterday was a bit stressful at work (as many Fridays are), trying to get everything wrapped up before leaving for the weekend. I managed to stay within my calories, though lunch was a little rough. As it is Lent, I must remember that it will be deep fried fish every Friday until Easter. I don't understand the deep fried factor since those in charge of the food also have other fish options. Despite trying to avoid fish of unknown origins, since the sustainability cannot be verified, I needed something to eat. I did manage to dodge treats again, today, though! The same coworker brought some sort of chocolate something (I closed my ears when she said what it was), then another coworker brought ginger molasses cookies. I love ginger cookies, I love molasses cookies. Put those two together and I start drooling. However, I didn't have any. Not even a bite. That was hard. I assured my coworker that I would have loved to have one, but there had just been too many treats around.
I was supposed to run when I got done with work. I was all ready, when I turned on my Garmin to find it was dead. Not sure why, since I grabbed it from the charger that morning. However, since I am still doing intervals it's hard to run without it. Of course, since I was waiting for it to charge, it took hours. Boo.
Finally, I woke up in the wee hours not feeling so great. I will spare you the details. However, this morning, when I weighed myself, I was at 146. I like the number, but I can't help but think that being sick in the middle of the night contributed so I 'm holding off celebrating for now. I am debating squeezing a run in before I go about my day, but I am not totally sure how my tummy is gonna feel about that. I want to run, but I also don't want to embarrass myself on the sidewalk. Methinks I should wait and make sure everything is settled down.
Well, the hubs and I are meeting a friend at the theater today and watching the rest of the best picture nominees. I am really excited to see The Artist again, and to see Midnight in Paris. Not so excited to see Loud/Close and The Help, but maybe they will prove me wrong. I will post my predictions after I've seen everything, but so far in terms of great film The Artist and Moneyball are tied for me. I would give the Oscar edge to The Artist just because it is more unique and risky, and I applaud the filmmakers for managing to stay true to the silent genre while making a relevant picture. I am throwing my eating plan out the window because popcorn is the word of the day. We seldom go to movies, so when we do popcorn is part of the experience.
Happy weekend, friends!
