Old habits die hard! Night snacking was what got me today. I did good the rest of the day though. Let's recap. I had the day off. I took it off because I needed some "me" time. Now, by "me" time, I mean I had to run errands and mow the lawn. Yes, mow the lawn. Now, I've never mowed my lawn before because I just bought this house in November. I've mowed my parents lawn when I lived there but that was a while ago. I didn't have a lawn to mow at my apt (ahhhh, the good ol' days!).
I broke out the new handy dandy lawn mower. I started in the front because, well, it's smaller and I figured I would just knock the front out and start on the back. WRONG! The front took me forever! I think it's just that I'm not used to the layout and the new mower. I did the front and side and after about 45 mins-1 hr, I said that the back can wait until Wed! The best part though is that I wore my HRM (heart rate monitor) and I burned over 300 calories. And I only did 1/2 the lawn! Woohoo! Bonus exercise! Love when that happens.
Afterwards, ran some errands (Trader Joe's among them) and headed back home. Watched TV and went to the gym. I went to a double class that I normally can't get to when I work. The first is a 45 min. Kwando (kickboxing) class, the second is one that I have gone to a lot in the past. It's a very hard Powerflex (weights) class. I love to do double classes! Feel the burn!
On to the food. I did great all day! I even had a cadbury egg (hey, they were on sale) and planned for that. But late night snacking got the better of me! At least I burned lots of calories to make up for it. I'm so obsessed with hitting goal this week that every time I eat when I'm not really hungry, I get mad at myself! Here's the menu...
