Good evening bloggers and bloggerettes. I had me a great day today and I want to talk about it. Which kinda works out since this is my blog and all! So today was that perfect storm for me. I ate great, with some adjustments to my menu, I exercised great and had a great time living life and not being in my own head for the whole evening. I often wonder if we as a nation haven't lost a little something in trying to be industrious. Tonight I had the greatest time at the high school track again, just being in a crowd of people that were practicing cheerleading, practicing football, some were out walking and some kids there had a Ferrari remote control car that I was debating about snagging and running off with. I really took it all in and appreciated it for what it was. I didn't think about work, I didn't think about school, I really didn't think about anything but what lap I was on and I lost track once but I figured it out. Then, I met Kathy and Lauren over at the school's tornado shelter building where they were taking part in the Girl Scouts recruitment that was being put on tonight. I then got to visit with one of my dear friends who is the mom of the troop leader. Miss Rosie and I have the best conversations and can go on and on for an hour or better. So we talked a good while about this and that and it was just nice to get to visit with her and catch up. She used to be a teacher and she has some great stories let me tell you! I wish we all could experience the nice evening I had tonight, outside of my own head.
So on to the activity and food part of the day. I took Doc's and Christine's words to heart the other day and modified my breakfast. I cut out the fruit, and now i have two egg whites, one whole egg scrambled together with some jalapenos and the half cup Special K and half cup of 1 percent milk. For my snacks, I had 1/2 of a convenience store bag of peanuts, 7 habanero flavored almonds, and of course the tuna with brown mustard. Lunch was my pita with two ounces of turkey and supper was Taco Bell's Fresco Chicken Burrita and half a mini quesadilla. When I got home, I had a cup of yogurt, a stalk of celery with 1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter and a sargento pepper jack cheese stick. All told I had 1,590 calories for the day. Now the strange part. I think I have become addicted to walking folks. I am not being funny. I walk every time I get a chance! I walked a total of 4 1/4 miles today! I got out of the house early today and so I went to Wal Mart and got three laps in, then back at lunch and got 6 more, for about 2 1/4 miles, then 2 miles at the track
tonight! I am trying to figure out when I am gonna get one in tomorrow even though I usually take Friday off to get ready for the weekend 5k's. I may need help ya'll.
So on to the title. I am aware it is a week away from weigh day. But dude, I can't get the number 259 out of my head. I honestly don't know that it is obtainable. I had those two big losses in a row and the last one was 7 pounds lost to 268. I would need to lose 9 pounds this go around and I just don't know if that will happen. But 259 is just there. I keep seeing it in my minds eye. I have decided not to over do it to get there, but I will be on the straight and narrow and in no way jeapordizing any shot I may have at getting there!!
I guess I will get off here and see what the back of my eyelids look like tonight. I sure do look forward to seeing ya'll tomorrow. Love ya, miss ya!!
