I took a half-day at work and headed home around 1pm. I couched for a while, when decided not to waste the entire afternoon on Facebook and cleaned the bathrooms and the stove. There. Got something done. We had a birthday party to attend in Peoria, so once Jason got home from work, we got all cleaned up and spiffy and headed out with the teenager in tow!
The party was at a pizza place - DANGER, Will Robinson! - which specializes in Chicago-style pizza. You know the stuff, in my opinion it's the best kind of pizza if you're a crust fan - pan crust basically fried in butter in the pizza oven... but it's likely the worst king of pizza if your trying to (
I had one slice and some "Italian nachos" and relaxed for a while chatting with the other guests, drinking a beer & pondering whether I was still hungry or not. By the time the next round of pizza came out, I decided I was still hungry enough for another slice, and ate maybe 2/3 of it. It was delicious, I didn't end up feeling overly full, and I stuck with just the one beer - go figure. All things considered, I managed a modicum of restraint while indulging in some seriously dangerous food. And while we were there, we ran into some old friends and meet a bunch of new people! It was a good night.
Jason had to work this morning, so we headed back to Normal about 9:30pm. Once there Jason and I wound down with a short glass of bourbon and some Comedy Central before bed.
I got a great quote from the Community Boards on the LoseIt! web site last week: "You cannot outrun the fork." I wasn't consciously using that as a mantra last night, but I've been giving it a lot of thought since I read it - it's funny, because it's true... Maybe that helped me control myself, I'm not sure. I'm just glad I did. I get to feel good today and I'm not kicking myself for a self-imposed sabotage.
|I'll be running from about 1 - 2pm. Windy but WARM!|
And a BIG THANK YOU to Michelle from Diary of an Aspiring
The plan for this evening includes a celebratory dinner out with my hubby and probably a few drinks at our regular hangout. Think we'll go to Outback Steakhouse - my dad gave us a gift card for Christmas and I could definitely go for some cedar-plank salmon or lean steak tonight! And tomorrow is my weekly weigh-in. I've had a pretty solid week with my routine for food & exercise, so I'm hoping for a positive result. (Or a negative one, as it were.)
Enjoy your weekend. I'm enjoying mine, that's for sure!
