I can't wait to go to bed tonight. I got up and got my jog in this morning... but the minute I got to work I just had a feeling I wanted to be back at home and under my covers. Some days the family stress just gets to me, but the good news is everyone is still alive and tomorrow is a new day. I still managed my walk at lunch too (and even walked a bit faster thanks to having to go to the washrom! Note to self: drink less water before going on the walk).

Here's what I ate today...
Breakfast: ww bagel (2)
Post jog: protein shake (3)
Lunch: salad with some turkey (1), cheese (2), vegetables (0), EVOO balsamic drsg (2), berries (1)
Snack: Larabar - key lime pie (4)
Dinner: whipped potatoes and ketchup - bizarre craving tonight (3), meringues (3)
Total: 21
Water: 5L (thirsty today!)

I usually try not to eat carbs with dinner, especially the night before weigh in... but I was too tired to make anything tonight and the leftover potatoes in my fridge were screaming for me to eat them with ketchup. I also could NOT stop eating meringues!

I have already managed to have a 45min nap on the couch... and now I'm trying to convince myself to get the energy to do my yoga DVD before bed!

Good luck tomorrow. I feel regret for eating so many potatoes tonight and hope it doesn't effect the scale tomorrow... which is why I should try to get that yoga done... I hope mine and Tara's efforts from last weekend paid off... we worked so hard!! (I will come back and update if I actually get yoga done).

**Back - No yoga. I forgot I have Days of Our Lives to watch from today... so I'm going to enjoy it and then go to bed. Yoga will be my goal for next week. I'm going to aim for 4 times! I should add... I just realized part of my problem with my mood today is PMS. But, on the bright side, I'm not craving any crappy foods!! In fact, I don't know the last time I really had bad cravings. Maybe healthy eating is helping**

Tomorrow will consist of (hopefully) a full hour jog in the AM and a full hour walk at lunch. I drove out our walking route yesterday and turns out we walk exactly 5K at lunch. Not too bad.

Hope you're feeling better than this morning and that everything is OK!
That bed sure does look inviting! Go to bed early tonight. And don't beat yourself up over the potatoes...I mean look at all the carbs I had for dinner!!

5K is a great walk! It seems like that has been helping you!
My tuna pita was "homemade". I bought a packet of tuna for 2 points (the ones you don't have to drain) and mixed it with a bit of mayo and lemon juice and put it in a high protein pita with some spinach. And the perogies were pretty tasty too!
