Had a rough day yesterday. Busy and stressful at work and then irritated my husband while recapping a coworker who had been out of the office. Fortunately, my friend and I had a walking plan for yesterday. My puppy and I got in the car and went to her apartment and we went on a four mile walk. We both had plenty to vent about, so the walk went by quickly. I got home and baked brownies with Deven. Dev is always very excited to help me in the kitchen, so I try to do a cooking or baking project with him often. After we got everything in the oven, I sat down and cuddled with the maniac, reading him two chapters of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
I did end up using bout 8 extra points, but it was worth it. Those 8 points bought me a couple of buffalo wing wheat thins, one peanut butter kiss (black or orange wrapped peanut butter taffy!) one Nature Valley Dark Chocolate granola thin and one reduced guilt brownie. I made sure that I wasn't responding emotionally while eating those things. I came home from a stressful day and made the right choice by walking with my friend after a very healthy dinner. I still have about half of my extra points.
Tonight I need to run Week 5 day 2 of C25k. This will be an 8 minute run, a 5 minute walk and another 8 minute run. I feel confident I can do this, but I also know that I will have an extra challenge because I am getting a pretty nasty cold. I will just listen to my body and do what I can.
What do you have planned that is positive for you today?
