Up 1.6lbs. Happy birthday to me. Whoops! I did it to myself. Let’s recap what I have done wrong over the last 3 days:
- Mile high chocolate cake
- stacked sandwich with breaded cheese on it
- French Onion soup (sodium in it is killer)
All of these things are contributing factors. NOW, the good news is that given all of these factors, I was ONLY up 1.6. I think had it not been for my 4hrs of jogging over the past 4 days – it could have been much worse.
Last night I wasn’t feeling so great when I posted. So, here’s some photos of food from the day;
So, while spending time on the couch last night I started thinking about how excited I am for Christmas (hello – 50 days away!). If you’re a Christmas lover like me, you can’t help but love all the commercials on TV… especially ones featuring this guy:
You know I saw him at my Superstore a couple of months ago? Yep, I was walking down the cereal aisle and there he was, walking by (8am on a Saturday) with one of the managers! He was very tall and skinny in person. So anyway… I was thinking about how excited I am for Christmas when some little friends appeared!
Hello my little Christmas friends!!
So… today I woke up feeling lousy. My head was heavy, my throat hurt… I couldn’t imagine jogging but I couldn’t sleep either. I got all showered and attempted to get dressed for work but my clothes felt so heavy I thought to myself ‘what am I doing? I am NOT going!’. I called in sick. I felt better mid-day and found myself deciding to hang up some laundry… which turned into totally cleaning out the closet. My place was chaos.
I ended up cleaning out my closet (which is a big closet – which means TONS of stuff in it). I threw out a few garbage bags of stuff, had a garbage bag of clothes to donate (some stuff I was going to keep but realized I hadn’t wore it in a year so I donated it!) as well as a huge kitchen garbage bag of clothes to give to my dad for rags (Alex will be so thrilled NOT to see me wear some of those ratty t-shirts anymore – the ‘used-to-be-white’ t shirts are gone dear!!!).
Tonight Alex picked me up to take me to WW… that’s when my throat started to hurt again – once I was talking. He was a little surprised at how lousy my voice sounded and he and my mom advised me to call in sick tomorrow… so I have already done that.
Tomorrow’s plans? Clean out the storage area closet, maybe a jog? NOT talking, resting when needed, lot’s of fluids… then dinner at the food court before going to see ‘Couples Retreat’! Saturday I get to head to my parents’ house for the weekend to celebrate my birthday with the family – including my nephew! Yay!!
