This past weekend I went to a wedding with a friend. We stayed at a hotel (the wedding was about an hour and a half away) - it was like a mini-vacation for us.
So anyway, hotel-staying means going out to eat. And so we did. Friday night we had a delicious dinner (I tried my darndest not to eat too much, but that didn't work out so well). We are both morning people, so we woke up early on Saturday and went to Cracker Barrel. If you have never been to a CB for breakfast, hooo-eee you are missing some tasty breakfast. So breakfast was HUGE.
Had a little snack before the wedding, and then off we were.
I don't like to complain about weddings, but this next part is in context of my Sparking. So it's all good. The wedding buffet was a Thanksgiving dinner theme. Cute, right? Well, the food was AWFUL. The roll was stale, the veggies were canned, and the meat tasted/felt like thick lunch meat. Ugh. I had a big mound of mashed potatoes and corn for my dinner. But the good part about this whole thing is that I listened to my body. Typically I would have just eaten what was there because "we;;, it was there." But this time I really paid attention to my body and decided not to eat what wasn't delicious.
So while I was a little hungry, it wasn't horrible because of the gigantic Cracker Barrel breakfast.
Here we are, another week. I am going to continue getting up early and hitting the gym first thing. I love it!
I am going to continue tracking my food, and working on more consistent dinner tracking.
I am going to continue drinking lots and lots of water.
And just this morning, I thought of something that might be fun. Since we didn't have a wedding and we didn't have a party, I was thinking that we might have a big celebration for our one-year anniversary. It's not until July, but I think it would be fun to plan a big summer party for that. I'll bring it up to Brad tonight and see what he thinks about it.
Off to swim! Have a great day!
