Day 5: 7 Day Challenge
I took it easy for majority of the day, only doing the bare minimum with three of the littles. I was trying to stay rested for my date with Rose. Dad took Rose and Sweetie to church for the morning. Sparkles was sick and the boys needed to be home. It was a very uneventful morning. Dad returned with the girls around 3:00pm. Rose and I ventured off for our birthday date.
I realized that I was running a bit low on fuel but didn’t want to stop for a quick fix/bad choice of food. Rose and I shopped for 2 hours then we went to eat Mexican food. I didn’t choose my normal cheesy dish. Instead, I opted for the kiddie plate with shredded chicken, mole, beans and lettuce. I also enjoyed some chips and salsa. I followed my plan loosely and tried to make the best out of our night out. The food was delish. My only noticeable side effect was immediate gassiness.
Rose and I went to the movies to watch OctoberBaby. We went with friends, another mother-daughter couple. Both of us opted to pass on the snack bar. I’m not sure that I would have had enough will power had it not been for Lent. I despise movie popcorn—it always makes me sick. Nevertheless, I usually can’t refuse it. Praise God that I didn’t bat an eye. It worked out, too, because the movie wasn’t a popcorn type of movie.
The date night ended with a visit to McDonalds. We were just looking for a place to visit. Not much will power was needed for me there since the food is a complete turn-off to me. I had water
I returned home at 11am with little energy but wanted to share everything with dad. It was 1am before I knew it. Shame on me, I need to make sleep a priority!
I’ve been thinking a lot about my trainer’s critique of my food log. I’m not sure what he’ll think of today’s log.
