Small Village... Fed!

Well I ate enough yesterday to feed a small village... yeah.. no food issues here.

I had a total V day yesterday. I've been home nonstop with the kids for 2 weeks now, with husband traveling a ton. So I decided to pretty much get out of the house yesterday and have a "me" day.

First I had my personal training session at 10:30am. She kicked my a##! Like I cannot even bend over right now, my abs are so sore. So the day started out right.

But then we went to Noodles & Co. for lunch. And I had a HUGE bowl of pesto pasta with shrimp. Holy crap, do you KNOW how long it's been since I had white pasta? Forever and a day and it was so yummy, I do not even feel guilty about it. It rocked my world (again, no food issues here). Want to know the sad thing? When I used to work over in that area, I'd go to Noodles & Co. several times a week and get that exact meal for lunch... ugh! And I wonder why I gained so much weight.

Anyhoo, then we went and saw Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. AWESOME movie! I had a popcorn as big as my head with butter (oh, just wait, it gets even better). Though I didn't have the entire popcorn, I had about 3/4 of it and only stopped because I was literally going to puke if I had anymore.

THEN, after the movie we went to Culvers and I had a blizzard (chocolate ice cream with peanut butter cups, in case you are wondering) . Yeah, you thought I was kidding when I said I had enough food to feed a small village, didn't you? Nope... totally did.

It was a fun day. I had some 'me' time, ate some grubby food which I haven't had in ages. But I definitely felt it last night. My stomach was just yuck and I was very sluggish. I don't miss feeling that way. I don't miss the food guilt and feeling so tired, and not having any energy. So while it wasn't great that I consumed that much food, it's a nice reminder when I'm starving today, as to why I am doing this. Why I am changing my lifestyle to be a healthier me.

I am 2lbs away from my first goal weight. Whoot! (though after yesterday, maybe not). When losing weight I always do it in 10lb increments. My first goal is to get back into the 80's. Then it will be the 70's, and then finally the 60's. So I am 2lbs away from the 80's. I haven't been in the 80's since after I had J, so I'm VERY ready to be back in that bracket again and to have my first goal completed.

A neighbor of mine, her husband has colon cancer. They are getting a group of people together on March 17th for the Irish Jig 5K run, in his honor. So I'm all signed up. This will be a good prelude to the River Bank 10K Run in May and then my sprint triathalon in July. AND it's for a great cause. So I need to get my butt outside and running. While I could do the 5K right now, I'm pretty slow, so I'd like to speed it up a bit.

Husband leaves tomorrow and doesn't return until Saturday. So it's gonna be a looooong week. I am going to try and squeeze in many workouts as I can. Even if it's just my 20 minute, 30 Day Shred.

Here's to a great week and getting closer to my 1st weight goal. Only 2 more pounds, I can DO this!


PS: Happy 15 month birthday to my darling little girl, S.
