So any deficit is better than no deficit, this is true. That's rather smallish though. And that 0 minutes of fitness isn't exactly true. I did walk the puppies last night with Bill. We did our usual meandering 1 mile route, but I didn't time it, and we strolled along, just enjoying the time out.
I mentioned yesterday that I was tired, and I knew that meant I'd be prone to evening snacking. Yep. I caved and had some tortilla chips and nut butter. Not the best choice, but not the worst, either. I was surprised to see I was up a few tenths of a pound this morning, until I realized I had the chips which always contribute to water retention. That, and I've realized I have a disturbing trend of being at or over my Sodium level for the day lately. Need to get that back under control as well.
So yea, it was a rest day, and it was wonderful. We walked the puppies, then made dinner together (really pretty easy and quick - pre-made turkey burgers on the George Forman grill, frozen mixed veggies in the microwave.. voila!) then spent a quiet evening, me reading and Bill channel surfing. It was nice to get home and just be for a bit.
So now I'm ready for the weekend, mostly. I'll be going with GayeMC and Kashmir to Seaside tomorrow afternoon, to volunteer early Saturday morning for our Hood to Coast team, Honey Badgers and Buckets! It should be a good time.
I'm talking with 4My2Kidz (hi Molly!) about how to handle food this weekend. Part of me knows that tracking keeps me honest and eating less. However, it would be nice to just "be" and eat healthy without worrying overmuch about how I'm doing. Does that make sense? I've mostly decided that I'm going to go and enjoy the adventure we're going to have without stressing much over tracking. It's only until Saturday afternoon/evening, so it should be fine. How badly offtrack can I get?
Yea yea, let's pretend that's an angel.
I'll walk kennel kids tomorrow morning before taking off, then do the Seaside adventure with my gal-pals. I'll catch you all up on the weekend come Monday. Until then.. be good!
