Day One: Complete

The first day of our new endeavor went very well! We both stuck to our calorie goal.

I am feeling much better today. The headache has subsided for the most part—just a little dull ache left, and I’m hoping the headache will be gone for good. I am also feeling less of the “bloat” feeling this morning, and that does wonders for my mood! All of you women know how feeling a little bloated can make you feel horrible!

Yesterday was the perfect de-stressor for me. I really needed it. Hubby knew it too…so he suggested we have a date day and take a little road trip. <3

We ate out at Hu Hot for lunch—I love that you can go to their website and calculate your calories before you eat! We both figured what we would eat and then stuck to it. And you can make a healthy meal out of it too—just beware of the sauces.

And then I had a little retail therapy. If you are in the need of such therapy, this is the time of year to do it! I actually went to Lane Bryant because I often have a lot of luck finding cute skirts there, and I can wear the 14/16 size. And I was not disappointed. I bought a dress, two skirts, two tops, and a scarf (which was only $4). All of the items were on clearance and then there was a promotion for an additional 60% off the clearance price. Nice!

And then I made the mistake of going in a kitchen store—you know the ones with all of the fun gizmos and gadgets. I was looking for a wok and I found one, only to get it home and realize it can’t go in the dishwasher….I try not to buy anything that can’t. lol

But omw, they had K-Cups on clearance. I came out of there with a total of 80 K-Cups. I told you I meant business. And for a steal too! I always vow that I’m not going to buy any more K-Cups and I just can’t keep that promise when I see a good deal. Am I alone in this?! lol I love my coffee—so it never goes to waste. 

During our day trip, I Googled walking trails in the area and we found a 1.6 mile loop around a lake. It was kind of “industrial” looking, so I was a little leery of it but it turned out to be pretty nice! It also took us exactly 30 minutes, which meets one of our exercise goals. I took a few pics to share.




I am happy about Day 1 and I know Day 2 will go just as well. I am glad that we started yesterday on a Saturday when I could be more relaxed. Hopefully I can handle the stress of Monday without going off track. I will deal with Monday’s troubles when Monday arrives, I suppose.

Have a great day!
