Well, I tried to get back into my new, healthier routine Wednesday … with mixed results.
Instead of getting up by 10 so I could take at least a short walk, I slept in ’til nearly 11. (Consequently, the day’s step total clocked in at less than 2K. Not good at all.)
I got up and ate the rest of the Arby’s roasted turkey chopped salad, which wasn’t nearly as tasty as it had been the night before. It was still edible — just barely. You can see the noticeable difference between the photo on the left (Wednesday lunchtime) and the one of the right (Tuesday dinnertime).
That’s what I get for dumping dressing on the whole thing yesterday, I guess. Maybe I should have tried that old dieter’s trick of dipping my fork in the dressing.
Live and learn …
With lunch eaten and eats packed for the rest of the day (noodle-less spaghetti for dinner, PBJ Mixed Nuts for a snack), it was off to Starbucks. I’m pleased to say I got some real writing work done before I had to head into the office.
On my way in to work, I made a run to Dunkin’ Donuts. I had a couple of unaccounted for Points in the day’s budget, and jelly-filled Munchkins were calling my name. I bought two, plus an iced coffee.
You heard me. I went from Starbucks to DD — and had coffee both places. Maybe I really do have a drinking problem …
Work was … well, work. The sucky thing about taking a Tuesday off is that Wednesday then feels like Monday all over again. At least I don’t do a solo shift on Wednesdays, so I had help.
Then, when I came home, I succumbed to the urge to snack. I ate both a Ham & Asparagus Egg Cup and two Reduced-Fat Oreos. Grrr … It’s much easier to say “yes” to the snacks when I don’t have the added incentive of the GoFitGals’ challenge to keep me on the straight and narrow.
So that was my Wednesday in a nutshell: No workout, not much movement at all to speak of, although I did do the GFG Desk Jockey Stretches at the end of the night, and questionable eats.
Today is a new day … a new battle. I have my eye on Jenn’s Irish Nachos for breakfast (or brunch, depending on when I get up). And I WILL be setting the alarm to give myself walking time before I hit the Bux.
