Day #5 Wrap Up


I’m so tired. It’s a real struggle to keep my eyes open, and a few minutes ago I started to put on lip balm, only to realize I was applying deodorant instead. To my lips. Now I’m tired AND my lips feel gross, since Dove doesn’t really wash off. Yeah, you’re right, I should be wearing an organic deo. Meh.

It’s obvious that I’m a bit cranky, so I’m going to cut this short. I did a good job with both diet and exercise today. Still not getting my running in, but I am making it to yoga, which is the tougher part of the battle. I feel confident that once I get on schedule with Bikram, the running will be a piece of cake.

Oh, speaking of cake, I’m just now remembering that I did have a little bump in the road today. My boss and I attended a business meeting at this awesome restaurant called Cake Cafe, in the Marigny neighborhood. It’s one of my favorite places, but as the name implies, it’s not a favorite for its healthy choices. They do have some healthy stuff, and lots of vegetarian options, but instead of choosing a safe salad or cup of soup, I had this amazing little mushroom quiche. That wouldn’t be at all bad, except that I had already eaten lunch, and was quite full when I ordered the quiche. I ate it just because everyone else was eating something. Though I managed to do damage control for the rest of the day, I know I’ve got to work on avoiding eating for emotional reasons, whether it’s shame, sadness, celebration, wanting to fit in, whatever. I’m stronger than that.

Here’s my menu for the day – 15 calories over, but I more than made up for it with a really tough yoga class.
