For the first time in a looooong time I missed my blog posting on Monday…but for 2 good reasons…well 1 I had a paper to write, not really a good reason, but still that’s my life…but the other was for date night! When you’re as busy as I am and a date night opportunity comes up, you jump at it!
My boyfriend and I went to Claim Jumpers…I had marinated chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies. Any other day prior to January 20th of this year I would’ve picked chicken strips or a burger with fries. I was, and still am, soooo proud of myself. I only ate a few bites of the mashed potatoes, because I’ve been training to not eat carbs after 3pm and I’ve been doing AWESOME with it and have felt a huge difference! I am almost at my first fitness goal of dropping 15 pounds before Ava’s birthday and I’m sooo close I didn’t want to screw up too badly. I confided to my boyfriend that I was battling with myself about not feeling guilty about the mashed potatoes….really? over 4 bites? **sigh** But I must say the chicken I had (btw it was huge so I immediately cut it in half and set one part aside to take home)…was SOOOOOO good!! I mean, really really good!! I have no clue what the marinade was, but wow!! 🙂
Anyway, then we went to see 3 Days to Kill…I won’t spoil it for you, but it was … ok… My boyfriend is a big Kevin Costner fan and even he agreed it was off… it had its great parts and then there were a few “really? wtf?” parts that really should’ve landed on the editing floor…just sayin..
I did indulge in popcorn…no butter (which I’ve never even thought to ask for before) and it was so yummy!
So last night I made sure to run for a bit (still training to run more than 2 minutes at a time before my lungs, or my sciatic nerve, kick my butt) to stay on track. I am literally 1.8lbs away from my first fitness goal…I got this! 🙂
