The best laid plans of mice and men...
Was planning out my week when I stopped in at NOAA (the National Weather Service) and saw that Wednesday is bringing freezing rain/snow. Oh, well, I guess I won't make it to the dump on an open day this week. (They are only opened on Wed and Sat.) I guess I'll shoot for Saturday then. I guess the old adage is true: "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans."
Did "okay" yesterday with my eating. Went a little over what I wanted too, but still within my calorie range for the day. Got my exercise in as well. Then hopped on the scales this morning and found that I'm up 1 pound from weigh-in on Wednesday. Piffle-snot-boogers-crap! Guess it's back to baked or grilled "chicken" for a few days :o( And I only have 2 cups of Taco Soup left in the freezer. So today I'll probably make a pot. That has become a staple in my house. I feel like my cupboards are bare if I don't have some in reserve. It's so easy to pop a frozen container of it in the microwave when I can't think of anything else I want to eat (cause I always want that).
Did you see the comment from Cammy yesterday? She said I exercised more that her last week! Tee-hee. (And you thought I'd let it slide and not rub it in, Cammy.) But actually she was being kind and encouraging. I'm sure she still exercised more than me, maybe just not as many days as I did, since I tend to get too winded after only 20 minutes or so to continue. But for me 20 minutes is a great accomplishment. Actually yesterday was only 18 minutes but I was dripping wet with sweat when I finished. I've been experimenting a little with my HRM and find that I burn more calories if I keep the exercise in the moderate range instead of going gang-busters. So moderate it shall be. It's been so long since I exercised consistently that I've forgotten some of the bells and whistles on my HRM, so I'm getting the little book out today to reread it. And this time I'll be making notes (since the print is so small and the eyes so old) on how to turn certain functions off and on.
Have a great Sunday out there in blogland.
