Day two of 5:30am and I am settling in nicely. I avoided turning on any lights while leaving this morning so that the dark wouldn't be such an adjustment for my eyes. It helped a lot but I think I am going to have to head out and buy a light for my bike today.
I love that the weather has finally cooled down! This morning it was so cool that I thought I should have grabbed a jacket...a thought that didn't live long! I was all warmed up ten minutes into my ride. I am not liking the 5:30am sprinklers much. They are in all the wrong places and usually leave me pretty soaked by the time I leave the park. They are also in places that make it difficult for me to pace myself in order to avoid going through them.
Last night I went out with a friend for supper and had a wonderful time. We sat and talked for almost three hours! We apparently had some catching up to do! I ordered a six ounce steak (go me!), sweet potato fries, and a salad with bleu cheese dressing. We ordered cheese bread as an appetizer which I decided would be my treat for the day (it was basically a pre-meal dessert except savory not sweet). I do not for one second regret ordering the cheese bread! We each got two pieces and it was super delicious! It was definitely my splurge for the day but I had 24 points left so I really wasn't too worried. I only ate maybe 1/3 of the fries as I was getting full. The only thing that I would change about the meal was my salad. I wish that I had dipped my fork in the dressing and then gotten a bite of it so that I didn't eat as much of it. I also like that the dressing is more evenly distributed throughout the salad that way. I think I stayed within my points or possibly went over by one or two which I think is really good for a night out.
Yesterday, in my second post I talked about my change in attitude toward fitness and I was kind of curious what gets in the way of other people's fitness intentions, plans or goals?
