**Good Start....Bad Finish**

I had a good start to my day, but then had a pretty bad finish.  I had a protein bar, milk, and fruit for breakfast.  For lunch, we went to pizza hut with friends and I had water and one slice of a thin crust cheese and mushroom.  I didn't eat much all day because I knew I was going out w/ friends for dinner.  So, to be honest, I knew I wasn't going to eat very healthy at dinner, and I didn't.  We ate at Jambalaya, and instead of giving complimentary bread they bring out potato chips, and I ate about 5 or 6 of them.  For my meal, I ordered a crab cake sandwich with fries.  I took off the top bun, but ate the crab cakes and bottom bun.  I ate some fries, but not all of them.  And I had two alcoholic drinks.  So, yea, LOTS of calories tonight.  Not sure what will happen with my weigh in the morning, but we'll see.

On a better note, I did go to the gym this morning.  I did 15 min. on the treadmill, and 15 min. on the elliptical.   After we left the gym, my daughter asked me if I enjoyed my workout, and with no hesitation I said - Yes!  And I meant it.  It feels good to be doing something to better my health, and I know working out is helping me to do that.  And I'm actually looking forward to going, again, in the morning.

  1. In the past you probably would have eaten all the bread, and perhaps many more of the fries. Not every day can be a day of big changes, but adding in little one's still count! : )
