Happy Monday! Had a great weekend, busy but great. I finished off last week with TKD class on Thursday. My arms were finally not sore by Friday. There was no TKD on Friday due to Good Friday. My youngest had a belt test on Saturday. My other daughter and I ended up helping with the test and that counted as my workout for the day.
Sunday morning we got the garden planted, house cleaned, flower beds weeded (at least in front). Then I cooked dinner-ham, roasted potatoes, green beans, salad. We had some friends over who did dessert-peach pie, apple pie, cherry pie. The kids got to hunt eggs just before the rain started. We spent the rest of the day just visiting and enjoying the company. The kids ate plenty of chocolate, I did not. I ate one chocolate egg. After all the cooking, cleaning and gardening I was pooped by last night. I figure that was a workout. I fell into bed around 9:00pm and was out pretty quickly.
This morning the alarm went off. I snoozed and snoozed and finally dragged myself from my comfy bed. Got breakfast cooked for hubbie and me-egg white, bacon, peppers and onions. Packed hubbie's lunch and headed upstairs for a quick workout. I did 20min on the bike and some upper body weights. My legs are a bit sore from all the activities this weekend. I need to remember to stretch more on the weekends. Even if it is housework or gardening, it is exercise and those muscles get sore whether it's a "work out" or just working outside.
I didn't log my food yesterday. Wish I had. I know I didn't do too bad with food. Saturday was good. I feel like I got through another holiday doing WAY better than a year ago. That's a good feeling. My scale is dead. It needs a battery (I hope) so I don't have a weigh in today and I haven't weighed for a few days.
Today food has been good. I had a lunch meeting at lunch. I didn't get to pick the restaurant. I had looked up estimates for some choices. It was Thai food. I had some spicy chicken soup and it was great. I drank water and I was satisfied. Now to head home for the usual routine-dinner, homework, baths and bed. I feel like I'm finally getting back in the groove. Now if I could just make myself record my food every day, 7 days a week. That's my goal this week. It will be a challenge since we have plans to go out for dinner on Friday and Saturday we're going up to Oklahoma for the OU Spring Game. But, challenges are what life is made of, right? So I know I can do it.
How do you handle restaurants where you're not sure of the choices? Do you ever go to a lunch meeting and not eat? I thought about it, but it was just 3 of us and I was hungry.
