Free Day

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Yesterday was my free day. I had been thinking in advance about what I wanted to eat on my free day, and since my parents were coming through town on their way south for a few months, I decided on Red Lobster. Unfortunately, there was an hour wait to get a table, and that was too much for the kids. We ended up at a Mexican sort of restaurant instead. In the end, I wasn't able to eat very much because I got heartburn part way through the meal. So in addition to my enchilada, I had a deep fried pickle and a couple of tortilla chips with spicy jalapeno dip. The only other food I ate all day was a few bits of the half pound peanut butter cup my boyfriend got me for Christmas. Today I'm back to the regular program. 5.2 pounds lighter than I was last Monday.

Today is meal planning, grocery, food prep and chore day. So far I've managed to plan the week's meals, make a grocery list, start marinating tonight's chicken and clean out the freezer. I slept late, so my step count is pretty pathetic so far. I've been watching kettlebell swing videos, so I'm going to head downstairs after I write this and give it a shot. Then off to the grocery store.

Bizarre weather here today -- 5 degrees celcius and kind of cloudy and foggy. It's supposed to rain. If the rain holds up, I'll try to get out for a walk later on today. Looks like it's going to start cooling down over the next few days, getting back down to -10 celcius by next weekend. Although the weather forecast is a little bit like predicting the future, so who knows what will happen.

Okay, off to attempt some kettlebell swings. I'll let you know how it goes.

    We woke up to 26o fahrenheit. Remember now, that we get to 125o in the summer here, so that's a hundred degree difference. I'm sorry you got heartburn, but it worked out for you weight wise haha. I love mexican food, but I have to be careful when i have it in restaurants because they use so much cilantro and I get sick.
    Your steps will catch up, you just got a late start. Have a great week.
