Day 235: Friday Funtimeness

Greetings reader!

You are a special reader and I’m glad you are reading my blog (when I say you, I’m really just talking to you.) šŸ™‚ Anyways, today has been pretty awesome! Not having classes on Friday is going to be pretty nice. Alright, let’s do this thang!

Breakfast: So we actually slept in a little late and I wanted to go to Subway for breakfast but instead I got a little creative. We had two Flatout breads left in the fridge so I used them as flatbread. I made some scrambled egg whites, added some turkey breast and added a slab of cheese and then put it then oven on broil for 2 minutes. I think it turned out pretty well (Megan liked it so that’s a good sign) and it was really filling. Plus it was cheaper than Subway too! 6 points.

Exercise: So we were going to go to Leach, then Tom Brown park, but instead we went to the San Luis Mission park close to our house. It’s extremely hilly and wooded so it was a pretty awesome leg workout too. It was also really hot and humid so we were both pretty zapped after it all. We went a total of 3 miles so it was a really solid workout.

Lunch: I wasn’t really hungry until the afternoon so I had some Kashi in Chobani for 4 points and then Megan made some whole wheat cous cous so I ate that too 6 points.

Dinner: So we got to go to the rehearsal dinner for our friend Becca’s wedding since we are singing and it was awesome. Dan’s family who’s from the South made some killer BBQ for the dinner. I might have went a little overboard but I mean it was some of the best BBQ’ed chicken I have ever had. The sides were also killer too! The coleslaw was made with real mayo so it was pretty rich but oh man it was all good. I did go for seconds and I did have some cake. I overdid it and I knew I did but that’s just how it works. Although I’m still able to acknowledge situations like this I still need to work my portion control. This is still a journey and I’m still working on it.

So today I got to 16 countable points and I still might have went over with 14 points left and exercise points but I think it was close. That’s life. The wedding is going to be finger foods so I will have a little bit and maybe half a piece of cake. We’ll see how it goes. See ya tomorrow.

  1. I think lots of people will disagree with me, but I think you have to allow for days off where you just enjoy life. This is a lifelong journey and you can’t let life go by you. You had activity, you’ve been doing killer so enjoy your piece of cake just dont let it get out of hand. Make sure your other choices are healthy ones if possible and Sunday you pick right back up where you left off. Have fun at the wedding!

  2. Yeah that’s really true. We don’t go to too many special occasions like a rehearsal dinner and it really was some of the best BBQ I have ever had but I still should have held off on seconds (or as much seconds as I put on my plate.) I think you have to enjoy life, but on the other hand like you said, not overdo it or eat so much that you feel disgusting afterwards. Any time we would go to a place that I never got to go to (like a chinese buffet or something like that) I would literally eat until I was sick and I don’t let it get to that point anymore because there is no benefit from that. I think that I was harder on myself a little more because I’m weighing in on Sunday and I didn’t want one meal to undo how hard I worked through out the week which I know isn’t true but still.

  3. weight loss is an exponential curve from what I understand. You will lose most of your weight at the beginning, but as you go along, like lim x–0 (Calculus joke) it starts to bottom out. However, there is a joke that muscle does weigh more than fat.

    To me, in what I want to do with #SAWS when I start this week is that I want to be healthier, despite the weight…and congrats on 100 pounds!
