I decided to go swimming today to "take it easy" on the cardio. After entering my time in the fitness tracker, I decided I might go swimming more often. I burned so many calories in the 20 minutes I swam today! On a related note, it was not quite as much "taking it easy" as I thought. Took a nap when I got back because my whole body was so tired.
Went shopping this morning. I bought two new pairs of pants and a new cute dress. I am right where I should be for my goals to happen. Yay! I loved shopping today. I felt like I could try on anything and decide not to get it not because it didn't fit, but rather because I didn't like the way it *did* fit (if that makes sense).
This afternoon was an unplanned cheat day. The fiance and I went out for burgers and kelly fries (SO good - fries with gravy and cheese sauce). I didn't even try to enter the kelly fries into the calorie tracker. All I know is that the next few days will consist of lots of cardio, and very careful eating. I don't want to be busting out of my new clothes already!
Met my mom for lunch (today was full of restaurant eating) at Applebee's. I had the grilled tilapia and ate about 1/2 of the meal. It was SO good. I also had a delicious "Key Lime Shooter" which is a "small" dessert on the menu, but in reality, is what a dessert size should really be. That was also really good. Tomorrow - back on the nutrition tracker.
I am really pushing ahead with my career goals - got a really great opportunity today to lead a couple sessions at the end of June at a state-wide academy for teachers. Yippee! I'm excited, but also a little nervous.
Off to make my lunch.
