I would love to have Spring on its way.
Yesterday was Cheat Day for me. I didn't count calories; for lunch I had a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with blue cheese (my FAVORITE sandwich), a potato skin (yes, only one!), chips and salsa (I didn't count the chips) and 1 1/2 pieces of homemade pizza (my fiance makes a super dough). It was a wonderful day! I got up and went to the gym to run a little, just to get my metabolism going. I even went for a little walk after lunch because it was such a nice day!
No wonder I couldn't lose weight before... yesterday I stood around eating chips and salsa without thinking. I have no idea how many chips I ate. If that was what my life was like before Spark People (BSP), I can't even begin to imagine the calories I would consume in a day!
So today it's back to tracking and mindful eating. I think I like this way better. I feel more in control, and I can enjoy my food.
The teacher half of me wants snow tonight (I LOVE snow days), but the practical side of me wants the storm to go off coast. I'm tired of shoveling, and I'm tired of my car getting stuck in the ice and slush.
Happy Monday, all!
