Saturday was a real struggle for me for some reason. One of those days when I’m fighting cravings all day long – and constantly having to remind myself why I want to lose weight and get in shape.
I started the day with a coffee and an Apple Pie quest bar, and got a little work knocked out in the early morning hours. But that was about it for my energy.
I spent the rest of the day feeling tired, and even fighting off a low grade headache. Probably just my Fall allergies at play. Not such a big deal as I didn’t have anything major planned…
I did have an hair appointment at 11am, and by then I was hungry again. (I get up early.)
My daughter went with me, so we stopped by Hardee’s on the way and I grabbed a Sausage & Egg biscuit – and just ate the sausage & egg of course.
And boy, I was glad I did. They had a beautiful display of sweets at the Beauty Shop, all set up for Halloween. Punch, cookies, candy, pastries and chocolate covered donuts. Yes, chocolate covered donuts! Eek! 😐
I spent two hours in the shop, within smelling distance of the donuts, and while I enjoyed looking at them – I never even touched one. I was seriously proud of myself – LOL. But I think that’s what tipped off the internal struggle that plagued me for the rest of the day…
We were planning to go grocery shopping after the hair appointment, which I really wasn’t up for (when am I ever? LOL). Fortunately my daughter decided she didn’t really feel like it either, and I was grateful. Grocery stores can be a madhouse on a Saturday afternoon. 😛
We decided to go out for lunch instead, and she picked Mexican. I ordered two Chicken Quesadillas with some sour cream & lettuce on the side:
Delicious! Of course, I didn’t eat the tortillas. Just the grilled chicken, cheese, lettuce & some sour cream. And I had a large water with my meal. Yay me! (I’m making an effort to drink more water lately.)
We hit RedBox on the way home, and came home and watched Zookeeper (stupid movie). After that I took a nap, hoping to shake my blah feeling and my headache. No luck. (Fortunately I’m feeling TONS better today – Saturday was just one of those off days. I’m blaming the donuts – LOL.)
Later we watched a second movie while eating dinner. This time “Source Code” which I actually liked – really good movie!
Dinner was Wendy’s Chili. A small cup is 15 net carbs. I usually put it in a bowl and add my own shredded cheese & sour cream, but last night I just ate it straight out of the cup.
It was a great night to curl up in front of the TV with a fleece blanket and a hot cup of chili!
Oh, and ignore the French Fries in that picture. That’s an obstacle illusion. Or an optical delusion. (See fortune cookie below from earlier this week.) LOL – yes, I finally gave in at the end of the day and totally blew it. 😛 *sigh* After doing so well! That’s okay, today will be a better day…
I aim to get in a nice long walk today. It’s freezing outside right now, but there’s going to be about one full hour where it’s actually 60 degrees and sunny (between 2-3pm) so that’s my window.
How about you – how’s your diet & exercise going this weekend??
