Valentine's Day doesn't hold much significance to me or my fiancee, so our celebration was minimal. I was reading Ninety Percent's blog post on V Day, and it made me feel like I had missed out on the lovey dovey holiday. Kate knows I love and adore her, but what about all my great, amazing friends? My family? Maybe they deserve some blue cheese mac & cheese too.
Speaking of our V Day meal, goodness I overate yesterday! Between the ice cream, tons of mac & cheese, and the chocolate, I don't believe I will get a loss this week. Plus, I can't exercise right now due to my ankle, so I think I simply need to accept that fact, move on, and eat as healthy as I can for the rest of the week. For lunch today, I ate rice and a boca burger rather than the DELICIOUS leftover mac & cheese we have in our fridge right now.
I'm halfway through the month, and I have a little more than half (6/10) my life points left on Health Month. My three rules are:
1) Exercise for 30 minutes at least 4 times a week
2) Stay under my recommended calorie count at least 4 times a week
3) Don't snack after dinner. 3 times a week.
It's a challenging month, for sure, but having these rules 4 times a week rather than 5 (like I did last month) means I know I can accomplish my goals. I'm glad to have this last week behind me, and for today to start the next week in my journey. I think my goal will be to lose up to 1 life point. Let's see if I can do it.
