Tuesday had the potential to be a really bad day, but if I say so, it went pretty good. We had a BBQ for my BF's birthday. Yummy food all around.
breakfast - None, I slept until 12 pm (I love days off!)
lunch - raisin bran, milk, V8 juice (not the veggie variety)
Snack - Mountain Dew
Dinner - chicken breast, fajita preparada (this is just meat prepared with seasonings by the butcher), golden baby potatoes; tomato, avocado and mixed green salad; Ambrosia, birthday cake, some soft drinks
Midnight snack - Piece of fajita, handful of Doritos, Coca-Cola
That Mountain Dew I had for a snack could have been avoided, but I was out doing some shopping and I was sweaty and hot and thirsty and hungry so I grabbed the first thing I saw. I also could have done without all the soft drinks, too, but I didn't. Also, the midnight snack was totally uncalled for. But BF doesn't like to eat alone. I really need to start telling him no.
I did not get to work out last night. I was EXHAUSTED from running around the town shopping for food and picking up the cake. It was super hot so I literally sweated buckets. Trust me, it was gross. I think the shopping was a workout in itself.
My back has really started to bother me, too. Lately, when I'm doing a lot of walking, my lower back starts to hurt. I guess it's from all the weight I'm carrying up front. It never used to hurt before so maybe my body is finally showing me that it is tired of carrying all this extra weight around. I haven't had a lot of physical problems (i.e. aches and pains) due to my weight, so I've been really lucky. But I think it's all starting to catch up to me.
I think it's time to get serious.
P.S. Sweated - it sounds kinda funny and the spellcheck on Blogger says it's wrong, but I looked it up and sweated is the past tense of to sweat. Hmmm? Is this the correct way to say/write it?
