Recovering from the Rodeo
Sunday, March 14, 2010
We had a blast at the rodeo. Didn't watch half of it and left during Toby Keith's 4th song because we got tired (and the box was getting a little rowdy). The tickets I'd been given were to a private box. My boss gave them to me. Worked out great for me. I already know the person who reserved the box and my husband, b-in-l and s-in-l had a great time with her and her other guests. Too good a time.
I broke my Lenten promise and ate meat Friday night -- I was too weak to pass up the baby back ribs. And I had two helpings of this potato salad that would, as my dh says, make you slap your mama. I asked the steward if the base was sour cream or whipping cream. He smiled so sweetly and said, "Both." And of course there was alcohol. I wasn't the dd, so I had more than I should have.
So, after logging in everything yesterday morning, I realized I had consumed close to 3000 calories! And 2300 of those were after 4pm. We did walk a lot but not enough to make up for it.
I want to ask you a question: if I consume 3000 calories on Friday butonly 1500 calories on Saturday, do they average out? It's not a healthy practice, but it would make me feel better.
Today is another day and I've started my Sunday morning with plain oatmea w/ a little flax seed, 1/2 a grapefruit, 1/2% milk and coffee. We're getting ready to spend the day at the state park, do a little bank fishing, grill some meat, and spend a lot of time hanging out in the woods. So even though my lunch and dinner today won't be totally healthy, at least I'll be breathing fresh air, soaking up Vit D, and moving around. Assuming I can get DH out of bed. Sometimes that CPAP works too well!
