The symphony was PACKED!!! We had a blast. My friend Ellen from Winthrop and her husband joined us for a real party
But this afternoon boy was I a snacker. I’ve been snacking more lately – a bite here and there. I’ve been trying to capture every bite, but it’s hard when it’s often just one cracker or chip. But I can tell it’s becoming a habit again and I need to work on cutting back. Here are some of this afternoon’s highlights:
AMAZING new chips that were BOGO free at EarthFare – I had about 5.
Two slices of watermelon while cutting (sure, water melon is not going to do much harm, but as usual it was the way I gobbled it down it that was unsettling.)
Two handfuls of roasted garbanzos -
Perfect Summer Picnic
We arrived at our spot around 6:45 and started with some red wine -
Plate of goodies : crackers, goat cheese, peanut kale salad with beans, chips, tortellini salad, chicken salad phyllo, artichoke hummus
More wine - (I only had half glasses – maybe less – but had lots of pours)
A little spiral cake -
I went to town on the tortilla chips . They were so good!! And I had a few more crackers . It was a munchy carb fest. (Can I blame the wine!?!) I probably had 2-3 oz of chips and 2-3 more crackers (which were 40 kcal each!) At least my glycogen stores will be tip-top full for a morning workout
I think I have been eating (and nibbling, as noted above) more lately, and I think my waistline is probably starting to notice a little. It’s so easy to get back in the habit of eating more and just pretending that it won’t matter. But it does – a little at a time. I plan on enjoying this holiday weekend trip we’re taking tomorrow and getting back on track as soon as I have a normal schedule again – 4 days to go!!!
Did I mention we’re going to ASHEVILLE tomorrow!?!? Karen is taking us just for a short one-night trip. I can’t wait, as Asheville is one of the best getaway places there is!
