Woohoo on no car seat!!!!! I don't know what it's like to lug one of those around yet but I'm sure I'll figure out the joys soon enough
Big hugs to you too!
I bet you look killer in your bathing suit!
Mike and Tori:
I like your tag-team approach on this, good goals for both of you! Mike,
I definitely agree with the clamshell picture! Tori,
great Monday report!
Completely jealous of your astronomy experience, that sounds like a wonderful event! Good for you!
Everyone goes through a funk once in awhile, but I think I've turned the corner. It's good to be back and chatting with everyone for sure, you're helping every time I log in!
Head-sized plates happen, especially at breakfast! You know you'll get that salt out right quick, no worries, try to let your guilt-free day be just that!
Thanks, I missed you guys too! I could probably have used the mani-pedi and shopping trip; actually one of the contributing reasons to feeling in a funk was because of missing girlfriends. I've never really been one for having lots of close friends, but my close lady friends are all now 2,000 miles away and I miss my girls. The phone is not the same! The self-indulgent part of my funk was just me WALLOWING in it, really, laying on the couch in dirty PJ's wallowing, ugh. I hate when I get like that. No more!
Sorry for missing those I haven't gotten to, just got word one of the undergrads is sick and I need to go cover her experimental shift!

BF and I had some much needed snuggle time on the couch.
Could have done better on the calorie balance/exercise yesterday, but to be honest I got home from work fairly late as did BF. He had a terrible day at work, so rather than exercise we just had a little couple/movie time. That's okay by me; I should hopefully have time to exercise today, even if it's just for a half hour. I did okay on the pie chart too - I aim for 40/30/30 (carbs/protein/fat) and if I'm +/- 5% of that ideal on the percentages, I consider that having done reasonably well. Yesterday was 41/24/35. Protein could be a weeeee bit better, but I was close!
Having a high-carb day so far today, but I'm planning on a lot of protein for dinner so hopefully it will balance out. I found out that Thomas' has started making their thin bagels (which I love!!!) in the "Everything" variety. I love me some everything bagels, and they've made a 110 calorie variety. I totally had one this morning with a spoonful of peanut butter on it, and I do not regret it!!!! It's the little indulgences that make us sane. Lunch is a cranberry and walnut salad with some pita thins and an apple; I'm missing protein here (other than the walnuts) so hopefully I won't be too hungry this afternoon, but I'm otherwise proud of the lunch. I would have put leftover chicken on it if we had any, but I cleaned out the leftovers last night with dinner.
Work is starting to pick up, but I will try to report at lunch break every day!!! Wishing you all a great Tuesday!
