Well, last night sucked. I think I ate my body weight in candy.
I ended up not going to my nephew’s football game, like originally planned. Instead, I went to my dad’s house and hung out there with my dad, brother, step-brother, sister-in-law, and niece. My dad was in Canada for 10 days and just got back.
And I got to play with this baby doll:
I know that one of my biggest problems is my sweet tooth. I love candy and sweets, and it’s something that I’m working on. I have also decided that I am a “social eater.” I do fine with my diet all day long when I’m by myself, but once it’s the weekend and I’m around family and friends, I eat like crazy. Sigh. And this weekend isn’t going to be any better. We’re going to my grandparent’s house today and there will be cake involved, and I have a special dinner tomorrow. One day at a time, one day at a time.
- Boot Camp – 60 minutes
- Elliptical – 33 minutes
Only one more boot camp until the Biggest Loser is over! Luckily, my gym offers boot camp year round as one of the fitness classes, so I can continue to go after the Biggest Loser is over. Today’s boot camp was tough. We had to run an obstacle course, army crawl, do push-ups and sit-ups on a stability ball, biceps and triceps with a body bar, and more.
After boot camp, I did 33 minutes on the elliptical before calling it a day. I stopped and treated myself to a McDonald’s coffee. It’s been far to long since I’ve had one.
Then I stopped at the store (story of my life) and I invested in one of these anti-puff eye rollers.
I take about a billion pictures of myself to put on the blog, and I have noticed that in all the pictures under my eyes always looks puffy. I figured that you guys didn’t want to constantly see my dark under eye circles, and since I try to avoid mirrors at all costs during the day (which is why my hair always looks so crazy), I thought I’d see if this eye de-puffer thing worked.
It better. It cost me $12.99.
Post workout breakfast in my car consisted of an Atkin’s bar and a clementine. Pretty much because I was super hungry and it was all that I had with me.
This afternoon we’re headed to my grandparents house. I’m making my orzo and spinach salad to bring with, of course. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I bring this dish to every single family gathering. I don’t look at it as repetitive, I look at it as my signature dish. And I’ll keep making it until someone says enough already, Heather!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Questions of the day:
- Does your family live close? Do you see them a lot?
- Are there ever situations where you eat too much? Anyone else a “social eater”? Please, anyone?
- Do you have a “signature dish” that you make?
