Frustrating Day

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Frustrating day...

First, my treadmill stopped suddenly @40 min. It hasn't done that in awhile. I was busy the rest of the day and gym wasn't on my schedule for the day. Therefore I didn't make my goal.

This afternoon, my husband was told by his boss that he couldn't have the couple of days off at the beginning of May when we planned (& had booked in January) to go to Estes Park. Fortunately we were able to to move our reservation to the last weekend in April. We will be going to were we spent our honeymoon 34 years ago. I am so looking forward to it -- I haven't had a day off/vacation in over a year.

Well - when I got the news and was being frustrated - I gave in and emotionally ate 2 pieces of Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread that I had put in the freezer yesterday. I was able to stay within my calorie range anyway, because I compensated for it at supper.

Daily Goals:
1) Blog -- emoticon
2) Exercise at least 50 minutes. emoticon 40 min
3) Eat at least 5 freggies a day emoticon emoticon 5 servings
4) Instead of eating something unhealthy today, I will... emoticon

    Despite the frustrations you managed to get in exercise and keep within your calorie range. Very well done.
    Glad that you have managed to reschedule your break and I hope you have a lovely time.

    40 minutes on the treadmill is better than 40 on the couch! it's okay to mess up once and awhile - and you know how to fix it! Sorry about the vacation!

    Chocolate Raspberry Banana Bread sounds amazing! And just look at it - very healthy, filled with lots of fruit (raspberries and bananas) to give you great nutrition, and chocolate, which isn't all that bad these days. Yum, yum, yum. Probably a good idea to keep it in the freezer so it's not so easy to eat. Hope you get your treadmill fixed soon. And congrats on getting away to celebrate your anniversary - fun, fun! Do they still have snow there at that time of year?

    So sorry to hear that you had such a frustrating day. It was great that you were able to change your reservations at least to another time without losing any money!

    little lapses, as long as you acknowledge them, are no big thing.

    A very frustrating day, but you did a great job of dealing with it. You stayed within your calorie range, and that is a major accomplishment. Well done! I am so glad you were able to come up with alternate dates for your vacation. Definitely something to look forward to! Hope you have a fabulous, non-frustrating day tomorrow.
