Okay, for the purpose of accountability, I'm blogging tonight.
I just over-topped my calorie range today, because I really, really, really wanted a shot of spiked egg nog tonight. And that upped my sodium just a bit from what I logged on the low sodium group. I'm at 1620 on the day, which is worse than yesterday, but way better than the 4 days prior to that.
In other news, while I'm not a hat person, a friend dropped a Santa hat by my computer today, and left. So, all afternoon & evening, as I ran errands and hung out with friends, I wore that Santa hat. And do you know, not a single person looked at me funny in the tons of shops (Target, Marshall's, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Ross) I went into.
(there's no santa hat in the emoticons)
While I didn't make it to the gym today, I counted my over 3 hours of driving to, going into shops, walking through those shops and parking lots as equivalent to about an hour of leisurely walking through the French Quarter...my guesstimate of about 40 cal/hr. It probably expended more than that, but I'd rather shortchange my actual calories expended, than over-estimate them.
Anyway...that was my day. I may wear the Santa hat to work tomorrow, too.
