Sunday, rest day. I've loved the break from working out today. My legs were a bit sore from yesterday's run...but overall it was a good day! Darab and I went out to do some Christmas shopping. Thanks Mom, for staying with the little ones. We are off to a good start with shopping, but while we were out we stopped to eat. I haven't been to a restaurant in the last two weeks and didn't really think it would be as hard as it was. We ate sushi and I just didn't eat the rice...but I did have a few bites of rolls and that involved a little white rice. Ahhh! It feels pretty bad to admit that. I'll have to plan a bit better next time we are going to be eating out.
I think I did a bit better when I took my mom out to dinner. We went to a really great Italian restaurant. We shared beef carpaccio for an appetizer. It was topped with arugala and parmesan shavings, which I easily avoided. But, oh my, the carpaccio with arugala and a little balsamic drizzled on top was so good. My mom got this fabulous looking, super thin crust pizza for dinner. It looked yummy. But I got a very tasty salad with balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil. We had a nice time and I didn't bust my calories for the day. Still I think I could've eaten better today, so I'm looking forward to getting by to what I know has been working well, hard work and a strict diet.
Overall, I am extremely happy with the progress I've made in the last 2 weeks! I really wish I hadn't waited so long to get started. But hey, it could've been worse, I could've waited until after the holidays. ;-)
