According to my phone (because I’m too chicken to go outside personally), it’s 32 degrees outside. Last time I checked, it was almost April. The Vernal Equinox has passed, has it not? Then, please, tell me why we’re having a second helping of Winter?!
Let’s pretend it’s Spring. Just for a little bit. Come, have some tea with me.
So, some updates. I haven’t weighed in yet. Sorry. But I went to the doctor with hubby (who has lost 10 pounds!) and Doctor’s orders are to go for a 1/2 hr walk 5 days a week! Which means We go for a 1/2 hr walk 5 days a week! I’m really excited. I’m hoping that will help both of us drop some of these extra pounds!
I’ve also noticed that after I’ve been eating healthier food, when I eat things that I know are bad for me (fried food, etc) I feel worse than usual. I think I’m ok with this though. It’s more motivation to not eat the bad stuff. I discovered this on Saturday, when my brother kidnapped me for dinner. We split a fried food platter, and by the time I got home, I felt terrible. But I got a cute picture before the food showed up!
And then Sunday morning we went out for the day. Wandered around the main street of a local down, had a delicious breakfast, and when we got home, I had hubby capture this cute pic.
Oh, so, speaking of going out a lot, I just wanted to give you all a little boost. You really can eat healthy (or at least healthier) when you eat out. For example, when we went out on Sunday, the boys (hubs and my brother) both logged their breakfast around 1200 calories. (Yeah, yikes…) My breakfast only cost me 900. And despite the fact that that’s still high, it’s also still 300 calories less than their breakfast. I also wasn’t hungry until like 4…. In fact, I still had about 900 calories at the end of the day. So just think about what you’re eating. I’m not saying you can’t have that cheesy, delicious double cheeseburger, I’m just saying you don’t need to finish your fries. :) Don’t push yourself. Despite what Mama said, you don’t have to finish what’s on your plate, especially with restaurant’s over-sized portions.
