It has been TOO many days since I last posted. Blogspot wasn't working for a couple of days and it threw me off! But, regardless... now I am BACK! :-) So, below are a couple of different mini-posts that have brewing inside even though I couldn't post.
Sometime you just need to eat a danish
JD and I went to the grocery store to get groceries. I REALLY wanted a danish. I mean REALLY REALLY REALLY. They just sat there and looked super delicious. The appley, cheesy, strawberry frosted eyes staring up at me. Begging me to buy them. So, indeed, I decided that I would buy one. And you know what. It was DELICIOUS. All 7 points!! I ate it with some fresh fruit and water. I realized that we all have those days where you just need to eat a ________. That day it was a danish. Other days it has been a huge bowl of spaghetti. And that's ok. I tracked it. I wrote it down. And I ENJOYED EVERY BITE. :-) We all have to enjoy the small things in life.
Today was a great day. It was game day. As I have shared many times, game day is really hard for me. I always want to eat what is made for lunch and I want to eat the huge dessert. Today lunch was grilled cheese and ramen noodles. It would have totaled over 20 points if I had eaten 1/2 a cup of soup and a grilled cheese. Yikes. Especially since I have no flex left. So, instead, I ate my own lunch. I made a delicious egg white omelet with a side of cracker chips. It was filling and only 5 points! And, I ate my own dessert. :-) All in all, it was a success.
My new POLAR HRM!
Thanks to Prior Fat Girl, I have been obsessed with buying a Polar HRM. I used it for the first time today. I still don't know how to use it all, there is a lot to do, however, it was SO cool. It monitored my heart rate and told me what intensity I was working out at. I can't wait to see all that it can do and how my goals and fitness plans will progress!!
Next week is the 5K!
I am nervous. I really am. A week from today I will be running a 5K! Eeessshh... I have to keep on rocking and rolling. *Le sigh.
That's all I have at the moment. :-) I hope it was worth the wait. I am nervous about Tuesday. I am hoping I have lost. I have been following the points, but the scale doesn't seem to be moving. Perhaps it was because of all the amazing work that I did in the last two weeks. It has to slow down at some point!
Anyways, I am ready for another week of rocking and rolling.
