It was a very active day for me, I went to the gym for a session with my personal trainer. I did the treadmill and the exercise bike with her, then I did weight training for my chest and shoulders. After the gym I went on a walk at the park with my parents as I waited for Patrick to get home from work. He’s home now, we had a small dinner. I was going to make a Greek dinner for us. But didn’t get home much before him, so he had soup and I had a Lean Cuisine. We’ll have the Greek dinner tomorrow. He can make it while I am at class. It will be lamb chops and couscous salad with feta cheese, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Work was good, kept busy. Tomorrow will be very busy, I have to work, then go straight to my counseling appointment, and then straight to class. I won’t be home until about 7 in the evening.
I tried a different method of eating today, I made sure to eat breakfast and took various things to snack on at work in a lunch bag that I got a Five Below, it’s really cute. I brought 2 cans of Light Lemonade, 2 granola thins (80 calories each), 2 small oranges, a fruit cup with no sugar added, and 2 organic fruit strips. I only add the 2 granola thins, 1 small oranges, 1 fruit strips, and the fruit cup over the course of 5 hours. I drink one can of Light Lemonade. I will pack the same things for tomorrow. I had some cheese for protein before the gym and then my Lean Cuisine for dinner. I will have 1 more snack in a few hours.
I have a counseling appointment with my bariatric physiologist tomorrow. It will be good to talk to her about somethings that are going on in my head. I will also get weighed (cross your fingers for a loss.)
It’s only 6 in the evening and my husband already went to work and doesn’t have to go anywhere later, it feels weird, considering he’s worked night shift for the past 5 years. He might be taking a Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm job at the company he just got hired at, I would prefer that instead of the various shifts schedule. We’ll know more on Thursday. It would be nice for him to have that because I am off on the weekends too. I am not sure what we should do the rest of the evening. I need to get new tennis shoes soon, but not sure if I feel like going back out this evening, we’ll see what he wants to do if I can get him off his computer. If we don’t go this evening I will go Thursday after the gym. I actually need to buy a smaller size shoes, that’s so weird to me!
