I managed to have a 2nd saturday in a row where I wasn't running all over h*ll and creation doing errands.
I ate my calories but didn't exercise.
I did take my kids to Barnes and nobles...I got them a cup of hot chocolate...and me a cup of regular coffee.
The got lemon pound cake..I got some sort of strange tasting chicken cous cous salad with chicken and almonds and golded raisins...(360 cal.)
I like to try new things.
Learning how to eat out, eat in and all the rest..
coming up with a plan of attack for maintenance before the battle starts has been my goal for the last month now.
It may have slowed my weight loss down...but I want patterns that are comfortable and that I will stick to once I hit goal weight.
*I don't like chicken cous cous salad with golden raisins....I still ate it because that was lunch.
Now I know.
I have had their fruit and cheese thing that is around the same calories...and I enjoyed that MUCH more.
This road trip that is coming up back east...(somewhere in the middle of summer) will be a good opportunity to see how I cope when I am out of my comfort zone and have to deal with being in a car and in strange places...How do I get my exercise in, what foods will I eat.
It's good practice..because when the kids are out of the house..I plan to travel more.
I want to be able to stick to some semblance of a plan.
It's for life, and having coping mechanisms in place for most things will be key.
It's back to the gym tomorrow.
It is also my 11 month anniversary of my first weigh in...I may be at 100 lbs lost.
I may not.
But I will post my weight either way.
I am going to bed now...It's only 7:42...but you know what..
I don't care.
On my day of rest..I am going to rest.
I will work tomorrow.
Have a great night.
