No worries, it's me!
I changed my background and weight loss ticker to a beach theme because ultimately, once I've shed these extra pounds, my husband and I are going to take a vacation together somewhere warm. With a beach. And I'll be in a bikini. So seeing that little beach and umbrella up there, and the summery, beachy background is motivation and a reminder of what I will reward myself with once my goal is accomplished. =)
Today was a good day. =) That one pound loss was really nice to see, for starters. Then I took the kiddos to the library; they've been waking up fairly early so we were set to go by 8:30a.m. I stopped at Java Crew and got a fat free, sugar free caramel silk. It's a vanilla caramel latte, and it's my new favorite drink. The only one I've found that still tastes really good after taking out the fat and sugar. ;-)
Then we dropped Charisma, our shih tzu off to be groomed and headed to the library. We got there a little after 9, and since the library doesn't open til 10 we went down to the duck pond where we found a fish that some bird had tortured. It was still alive, but was missing it's eye and it's intestines were strewn about. The kids were duly fascinated and grossed out. ;-) Then they got really scared that the birds (a heron, seagull and some ducks) were going to come poke THEIR eyes out, so we left.
I met my SIL and really good friend Jen at the library for kid's story time. That was super nice cuz we haven't seen each other in a long time.
I ate well today, and even drank some green smoothie. Last time I was at Costco I bought two boxes of the organic baby spinach, and if you don't use it up fairly quick it gets slimy. Green smoothies are an easy way to down A LOT of greens. ;-)
So for breakfast I had one apple cinnamon pancake. It was so good! I just made it with Krusteaz mix and added some cinnamon applesauce to the mix.
Then I drank 50oz green smoothie, had a salad with spinach, turkey, sunflower seeds and dressing for lunch. I ate 2 Daim candies; they are toffee and chocolate and yummy! For dinner I had a burrito with one Flat Out wrap, refried beans, lean hamburger and a sprinkling of cheese.
