Not Day 32 of Challenge: The walk interruption, the calm again appetite, the beautifully warm day...and a fun outing for tomorrow...

Yesterday, I didn't do a lick of exercise, well, other than a wee bit of dancing and whoopsie. Stayed under 1200 cals. Drank my water.

Today, have had fewer than 600, so have plenty for supper and maybe a snack, too. I like doing the evening yogurt/fruit/nut thing. Seems to have a nice effect on my sleep. Did not have the "crazy and wanna eat" feeling last evening. None of that today, either. I did have a craving for buttered toast, but I swatted that aside.

Also today: Pilates session, walking.

The walking got interrupted. My left foot went numb way earlier than usual and I had to slow down. A lady I wave to snagged me for an intro and convo. Nice lady with a cool Mi-Mo home (think fifties, stone work, Lloyd-Wright influence, nice woodwork). She liked me enough after a 40 minute chat that she showed me inside her house. I love Mi-Mo homes, so no problemo. She was a widow and I guess needed some human company. Friendly. Nice. Good to know someone on my walking route, too, for safety's sake. And she's usually outside puttering when I walk, hence the "waving" habit.

Resumed walk when it was dark, with beautiful sky and dark trees.

A little hungry, not much. I've hit the water enough that it keeps the stomach un-grumbly.

Today was warm. I wanted some of the cold from the North, but we got a/c weather until near sundown, when temp and breezes were great for the walk.

Tomorrow, we go see a live show of WAIT, WAIT, DON"T TELL ME (which I mentioned before is my fave NPR show). Hubby got tickets. I have no idea what to wear. It's at the opera house (and that makes me think dress up some), but it's a comedy live show (which makes me think "jeans"). Oh, well. It will be my first time at the new complex downtown for music/dance/performances. Kinda excited. If it doesn't let out too late, maybe we can hit a MiMo restaurant for supper. Not sure. Better have a snack before we go. And not too much water. I don't wanna get up every 25 mins to pee. Pity we couldn't see the Thursday one, since that has Mo Rocca, my fave panelist! BUT.Friday's has Dave Barry, and he cracks me up. So, it's all good, right?

Oh, just remembered. Have an appointment with the R.D. tomorrow. Oops...better plan out the day...I may need to go buy undies for the night out. Don't wanna be a saggy bottom gal.

Later, peops. Be healthier by a bit today...

Oh, I love getting to know people in the neighbourhood and waving to them on your routine life. So lovely that she invited you in, that probably made her day, eh?

I'm not sure if I'm going to join the Phase 5, I haven't had time to ask but I get the impression that you have to stick to the menu exactly and I just can't make a commitment like that. Also, I could not take any more exercise than is already being required because of my chronic lack of sleep (because I take care of the LM during the night with his chronic waking problems).

Anyway, have a FAB time at the NPR show, I have never been to a radio performance but listen to lots on the BBC and always wonder what it must be like to be in the audience! Have a great time and bring on the new BMI category! Woot! Those are so exciting. I'm nearly normal, lol.

I'm going to get a TShirt that says: "I'm NORMAL!" on it when I hit Do you think people will think I'm not normal?
