I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far. My daughter came home from college today, my son washed my car, and my youngest and I just finished doing our Bible reading. So it’s been a great day!
Some housework completed, all the laundry is done for now. I sent my oldest laundry detergent with her to college and she brings it home with her dirty laundry. It’s okay though, I’m just grateful to have her home. If I told her I couldn’t she would do it, but I like to help her out.
So today was probably the biggest temptation I have had since I started blogging. I went to a baby shower. If you have ever went to any kind of shower/party you know there is always food. This one was no different. I could have easily ate all my calories in one sitting. They had these cake balls which I really wanted but I told myself if I could do without I would treat myself with my pumpkin cake later. So here is a picture of what I ate.
This was a huge deal for me. I’m trying to learn control. Now if I hadn’t just had dinner I would have allowed myself more food in moderation. I only had 500 cals left and I didn’t want to leave myself with zero knowing when I came home I would want a snack.
Now this was my dinner. This is a salad plate and the calories add up to 450. I ate no bun and reduced my chips to 1/2 serving. I also use a leaner beef.
Some people can do without pumpkin cakes and chips, but I am not one of them. Not right now anyway. I may never be that person. I just want to be the person who can eat what they want in smaller portions and still lose weight and be healthy. I did weigh in today. I lost two pounds, 28 more to go!
I went and jogged a mile tonight I did it in 12mins and 7 secs. Thirty seconds faster than last time. The strange part was it was going on 9pm and my body wanted me to go jogging. It was like I just had to go, then it rained. I thought I was going to have to go in the rain but it stopped. So I think this is a good thing or it’s going to just end up being something I am neurotic about. I’m not sure if I need to be any more crazier than I am.
That’s all for tonight! Thanks for reading, until next time God Bless!
