Day 424 - M

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Had a great day. Not quite as hectic as yesterday - thank goodness. It was cold today, but great for hiking. Jetta & I did the big hill this morning, then off to the hiking trail in the woods for more. Good mileage today: 9.36 miles.

No ST today.

Not sure what's going to happen by morning. We're supposed to get ice, freezing rain & sleet. The snow has already fallen. They could call a 2 hour delay or school may be cancelled altogether. We were supposed to meet up with some friends tomorrow after our bus routes for dinner at a....PIZZA place. I'm going to eat before we go and just order iced tea, that's IF we go. Depends upon what kind of weather we get tonight. If it's bad & there are power outages & horrible roads, we'll just reschedule. I'm talking about this b/c it's the 1st time we've eaten out in ages and the 1st time we've eaten with others since I began with SP. At first I didn't know how I was going to handle this, but I think not eating at the restaurant is best. They probably don't have anything healthy anyway. I could see (call ahead) if they have salad and could bring my own dressing possibly. I don't feel the least bit deprived by making this choice. It's about doing what I feel comfortable with and that would not include mindlessly pigging out on pizza. It may be great pizza, but it's not worth it to me. It was just a challenge. Nice to have a meet-up with friends, but wasn't looking forward to the eating part of it. But now....I have a workable plan and feel good about it.

Thanks for stopping by today if you had time. Hope you had a great Thursday and hope your roads are in good shape tomorrow. emoticon

    Sounds like a good plan for when you go to eat out! I do eat the pizza, but I make sure I eat lite the other meals and it has balance out - LI, NY got 3' of snow last week - my car was buried for 4 days. Live in an apt complex and maintenance men dug me out! LOL That's a lot of snow for LI...Have a blessed day...

    Oh my, how I struggled with this in the beginning! I really was almost panicked about eating out! Now, though, I do just exactly what you're planning on . . . I'll eat before hand OR if it's possible, look into the menu to find a healthy choice. If there isn't one, then back to eating before I go.

    Good luck!

    Just got in from 40 min. of CV and ST . . . shoveling 5 in. of snow! Oh boy, not complaining. My cousin in Kansas City MO got a foot! UGH UGH UGH

    Good luck tomorrow and hope the roads are fine. We are getting light snow-maybe 3 inches which is so different from the 6-8 that they first forecast.
