Tomorrow I get to climb on the scale again. I am scared to death. I know I shouldn't be. I am doing a good job. But if I am not 217 or lower I'm going to be really disappointed. And I'm going to have to remind myself of 50 different reasons why I shouldn't let it ruin my day. Ugh!
I have a big weekend ahead of me. I have a lunch at a great Italian restaurant on Saturday and then a hockey game on Saturday night. Not exactly lo-cal environments. But I have tried to plan ahead. I'm traveling with everything I need to make a protein shake, plus some fruit and yogurt. I have also packed small baggies with pre-measured snacks to put in "that luggage that I call a purse." Hahaha. My worry is not that I'll WANT to eat something unhealthy, it's that there won't be an alternative. Hence, the snacks. But I think that all too often their aren't alternatives. And puleeeze don't tell me to order a salad.
Salads that restaurants offer can have tons calories. A chef salad, for example, can have up to 800 calories in the added meat, eggs, veggies and cheese. A cobb salad close to the same. Unless it's just the lettuce and veggies, it's more calories than a sandwich. And I cannot tolerate lo-cal dressing. I think it's easier to ask for it on the side and just dip each bite. You use about 1/4 of the dressing you would if you poured it right on the salad. So, I have to really watch it.
My exercise today was good -- although I didn't get to it until almost 8 pm. Note to self: When you go to the gym at night, be prepared to stare at your reflection the whole time. There's no looking out the windows at that time of day! Anyway, I got on the treadmill for an hour, then did my weights. I watched the Wild hockey game as I walked, which really made the time go fast. Saw my sister and law and her son on TV. That was fun too! And there weren't very many people there, so I wasn't terribly embarrassed when I spontaneously flung my arms in air when the Wild scored, sending my ipod flying through the air and onto the floor behind me. lol.
And that's today. So I'll sign off by saying "Thank you, Lord, for the great things you give me. Your a great friend! And Bless My friends and supporters too please, Lord. Thanks!"
P.S. to Mon Ami: Merci de vos mots aimables. J'espère qu'un jour bientôt je serai beaux intérieur et extérieur !
