Saturday Report - a mixed bag.
Saturday, May 19, 2012
OK, I'm going to confess. I only tracked a couple of food items today because I really have no idea how much I ate. It's the first time since I had to resume tracking on the weekends that I haven't tracked every single thing I put into my mouth. I'm going to give myself a "pass" for today, and won't even attempt to track it. I just need to not let weekend slippage become a habit again - tomorrow I get back onto plan.
I actually had planned to have an "off program" day today, because it was my weaving guild's annual dye day at one of our member's houses out in the countryside. I knew that there would be lots of treats that I would want to indulge in, and boy, did I! Frankly, though, I really don't enjoy the stuffed feeling that such indulgence causes. I don't do it very often, and while I enjoyed the taste of the treats, I don't enjoy the resulting over-fullness. To my credit, I did take small portions of everything, and then went back for more, instead of taking huge portions from the start - so that did pace things somewhat.
After I got back home, hubby and I took an hour long walk after dinner. To my amazement, we walked at what felt like a normal pace, and I had no pain whatsoever! It's the first time in ages that I've walked for that long without my back complaining at some point. So, my reduction in exercise intensity after my setback a couple of weeks ago seems to be working. Hooray! I actually have a little over 10K steps on my pedometer today, which is amazing, since it felt like I spent most of the day sitting!
Now it's time to wash up and get to bed. I want to get a little pre-lights out reading in to settle down.
