have been trying to make the effort to set daily goals for myself. For Saturday my goals were,
1) Be present and enjoy all the moments big and small. – Check
2) Stay below or at calorie count. – No
3) Stretch – no planned exercise today, it’s my day or rest. – Check
Though I didn't reach all my goals for the day, I was happy to have done 1 & 3. I had to work Saturday, so I wanted to make sure that the rest of the day I was able to be relaxed and enjoy the afternoon and evening that The Husband and I got to share together.
Off to work I went. And I think for those of you who read yesterdays post and those of you who didn't (click here), well we know how that turned out *sigh*.
Lunch was I was looking forward to, as my day was pretty busy with meetings from 10:30-12 and 12:30-3pm. So my 30 minute lunch break was a little retreat away from everyone else. Tuna wrap with sprouts and red pepper Baby carrots and garlic hummus.
My afternoon snack that I had at work was an impulsive one. Though I try to make an effort to eat natural foods, today just wasn't meant to be one of those days. After work I was meeting The Husband at a local patio. The Courtyard. So nice that I had a drink already ordered and waiting for me. Thanks Babe! I had my packed afternoon snack here (an apple), while The Husband ordered some pickles.
That's right, no sauce. Use your tomatoes fresh as a base. Next some spinach, Portobello mushrooms and red onion.
The Husband and I decided that we were going to keep our Saturday evening a low-key one. We used our hot tub (which sadly did not work out my kinks), watched some T.V and then watched the movie The Informant (funny movie). Spending the evening like this, I had some snacks. It was hard to not snack just sitting around. It's my ultimate bad habit and I am working on breaking it.
Beer nuts, chocolate eggs, some water and a Bud Light Lime.
