Sunday, funday. That's my philosophy. The Lord rested on this day, and so will I. Everyone needs a little break. So, no exercise today. I am still counting the calories, but I didn't work out.
I went to a hockey game. Even though I made sure to eat before I left, I got pretty hungry when I was there. It didn't help to have tables with food set up at four stations around the rink, not including the concession stand. And it doesn't help that I have this bizarre craving for hot dogs (so much so that I picked up some 98% fat free turkey hot dogs!) The whole place smelled like one big hot dog -- and I really wanted one. My weight today kept me from giving in on that one. Did you notice?????? I am down another 1.5 pounds. Woooohoooo!!!
And because I was, I am/was terrified that if I overeat today, all of my hard work over the past week will be wasted. I won't let that happen. So I passed by the tables with chips and hot dogs and brownies. And let me tell you this - those brownies must have been DANG good for my friend M.C. to have eaten one. He's completely focused on eating healthy, is built like a rock, and he ate a brownie. Yikes! I practically RAN away to keep from doing the same.
Came home and didn't really have a plan for dinner. I decided I was hungry for Special K. So I made a bowl, added some frozen strawberries and took a bite. YUK! Okay I know there are starving people in the world and you shouldn't waste food, but there was NO WAY I was going to waste 300 calories on something that didn't taste good. So I had two bites (maybe 4) and down the sink it went. I'll give myself 100 calories on it just to be on the safe side. Had my turkey hot dogs instead. Used light whole grain bread as the bun, added a little ketchup and mustard. Perfect. And only 225 calories.
I hate it when I go out and I get hungry. I know I should try to keep snacks in my purse or something, I just have to actually remember to do that. Tonight I would have been tempted no matter what.
So, there it is. My lovely day with hot dogs everywhere. I hope your day was relaxing or fun. Or both. Good night!
