Nervous Over Nothing

Sorry about my lack of posting last night.  I wound up going out earlier then I thought I was going to with my friends.  I was so exhausted we wound up leaving the bar around 10:30 and I was in bed and asleep by 11.  AFter such a long cold week I just have any energy left.

After my post at lunch time I snacked on another Honeycrisp Apple.

I’m so glad I was able to find them at Whole Foods the other night.  Gala just isn’t cutting it anymore, now that I’ve had the Honeycrisp.

I was so hungry by 4:30, I just don’t think my lunch and snacks were very filling yesterday so I ate the second 1/2 of the Carrot Cake Clif bar I had Tuesday night.

Finally I felt satisfied after eating that.

I knew I wanted pasta for dinner so after I got home I made a bowl of angel hair pasta with the last of the jar of Hot spaghetti sauce, with a little less then 1/2 a serving of fat free Ricotta.  I also added an ounce of part skim mozzarella cheese to it.   It was a very filling dinner but it hit the spot after a day of unfulfilling meals.

I was so happy to see my best friend Michelle last night.  We typically don’t go very long without seeing each other but because of her vacation it had been 2 weeks!  I had a great time hanging out with her and a couple of our guy friends.  Michelle and I have known each other since we were 3, I can’t believe I can say I’ve known her for 20 years!  We were close on and off throughout elementary school, but then quickly became best friends in 7th grade when we had French class together, we’ve been best friends ever since then.  I’m very lucky to have a friend like her and I’m so grateful.

At the bar Andrew ordered a burger which I snuck 2 bites of and 2 fries from him.  It was literally the best burger I’d ever tasted, thank god I was full from the pasta still or I would have ordered my own.  My friend Mike got a really great dish it was like a macaroni and cheese with with cauliflower I snuck 2 tastes from him as well.  It was really very good.

This morning I woke up and had a Clif bar while on the phone with Michelle, I completely forgot to take a picture but it was Oatmeal Raisin Walnut.  And I ate the whole thing.

After getting off the phone it was time to head out to meet my trainer.  I thought today was talking and getting to know each other and then working out.  Well it turned out to just be getting to know each other, weighing in, taking measurements, going over my meals, and setting goals. Then I worked out on my own.  I did some time on the treadmill and a circuit on the arms machines. My first training session is actually going to be Thursday at 7.  I’m excited but still a little nervous.  We’ll see how it goes on Thursday I guess. 

Once I got home I broke out the oats and had a bowl.

I put a mashed up banana, some apples with cinnamon I microwaved for a few seconds, and cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter.  I had such high hopes but I just don’t think oatmeal’s for me.  I’m going to keep trying though and see if I come up with something I really enjoy.  I ate some of it but not all, we’ll give it another try next weekend.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!
