If I made 1.5 pounds lost for the week, I'd make challenge loss goal. I made that today.
But man, I had to fight off temptation last night. Hubby wanted to take me out to dinner. I knew quite well that if I did go out, I'd go over 1400 (the high level cap for the challenge). I'd go WAY over. No question. You get to the point where you know YOURSELF and what you usually can eat at restaurants and how much you can handle.
I said no. No anniversary dinner out. We had dinner home.
We did eat lunch out,al fresco, at a Mediterranean cafe, with these little yellow blossoms dropping on our table every now and then from the tree that shaded the eating area. And this is what we ate:
|My Greek Salad, I eyeballed about 1.5 ounces feta, |
and they were obligingly very light on the dressing.
We had a smiling-good time! It was warm and humid, and my curls began to reimposed themselves in short order after the blow-out:
|Wearing a wedding band on middle finger is funky!|
|See, he's also smiling!|
|A Happy Princess in the Florida Sunshine!|
Recap for StSC Day 6:
Exercise: Nope. I mean, we did some minimal walking around, like 10 blocks, but I ain't counting that. That makes Saturday my second rest day. Oops, that means I have to exercise TODAY!
Encouragement: Minimal. I wasn't home. :P
CHALLENGE WEEK 1 GOALS CHECK:Weigh in: Um, yeah. ; )Keep calories between 1200 and 1400: Did so all but one day.Track Food: Done every day (though man, it's a pain)Exercise 5 days: I exercised 4, so fell short on this goal.Pray daily for challengers: CompletedEncourage others daily: Did it every day, but some days hit more blogs than others.14 glasses minimum of water/fluids: Met every day of the week.Keep blogging: Been doing that daily.Not quit: Still at it!
I gotta tell you, I'm really, really proud of myself for fighting off the "let's have dinner and forget about calories" temptation that warred in my bosom. But then, a good dose of hugging and smooching and food is ...well...not as tempting. There is always something better to do than pig out.
Happy Sunday. May all the challengers make their weight goals this week. Chins up and eyes high on the prize, peops! Put a rose in your hair and smile!
|Enjoy your day!|
