Day 9 - UFFDA!

Friday, April 11, 2014

UFFDA! - translation for non Minnesotans/Norwegian Americans = similar to Oi Vey! Oh my Goodness! Wow! What the heck! all rolled into one! emoticon

Happy Friday all. That uffda is how my day is starting. I ate a 700 calorie breakfast! Uffda! But I've already made a plan to compensate for the rest of the day and still be on calorie track. Darn those Bavarian creme filled chocolate covered Bismark donuts! Not a healthy way to blow my calories. Next time, perhaps I should only eat half of it. emoticon

256! that is a number I haven't seen on my scale in a LONG time and until I ate that donut, that was the number on my scale this week! My progress may be slow, but its progress. I know my progress would be better minus that pesky donut, but I know that a slip up once in a while shouldn't derail me. In fact, I have logged my lunch already and if I get back on track for the rest of the day, I will still be within my calorie range for today. I can do this.

I have 90 minutes in the pool planned for tonight and my donut slip will not keep me from hitting the pool. Tomorrow I run Goldy's 5K Race. (Goldy Gopher is the name of the U of Minnesota's mascot. I work at the U of MN.) emoticon I just checked and the rec center where I work out is going to be open when the 5K is over so I can "cool down" from my 5K by going for a swim and a sauna or steam in the steam room before I go home and crash! That means I will have my 120 minutes before 11 a.m.!

I am not sure what I am going to do for Sunday as I am "Bowling for Brains" from 1-5 in memory of my dear friend and co-worker who lost her battle with brain cancer a year ago. I'll have to work out/go for a walk before church and then make sure I have my spark on my bowling shoes for the afternoon! Then the gym will still be open for a swim after bowling on Sunday night to make sure I have my 120 minutes. emoticon

This is a really busy weekend! I have been trying to make my weekends more low key, but I am looking forward to it nonetheless. I can't believe how much my outlook has already changed during this 100 days challenge. I have spent more time planning my workouts this weekend than I have ever before! I like it, but its unusual for me!

I hope you all have a great weekend emoticon

    Sounds like a very busy weekend you have coming up.
    Yes those delicious wonderful filled pastries taste might good, to bad they have all those calories. You seem to have the rest of todays eating planned to keep you on track--so great planning.

    Yay, you! One step at a time! Did you enjoy the Bismarck? They are my favs, too, and I do occasionally enjoy them, then regret spending so many calories on it... then remember how much I enjoyed it...

    Have a wonderful day!
