Day 36

Short post! I'm exhausted!

I took a break today. I think I needed it pretty badly actually. I needed a day when I could be alone for at least a little while, and where I could just let my mind relax. I spend so much time running errands and such for other people and doing my own stuff that by the time I realize I've overspent myself my mood is full tilt and I have trouble being nice. I realized that today while taking my cousin to Wal-Mart for the 3rd time in as many days. So I took a break from everything but the food plan today. I will make up an hour of cardio on Saturday. I have to learn how to take care of myself!

Today was pretty good food wise. We are out of salad stuff though, so it wasn't as good as yesterday. I'm going to stop on the way home from the gym tomorrow and re-up our supplies.

1 Banana: 2pts
1 can soup/chowder: 8pts
1 arnolds sandwich thin: 1pts
1 veggie burger: 2pts
1 serving pickles: 0pts
1 serving katsup: 0pts
19 Natures Promise BBQ soy crisps: 2pts
1 pear: 1pts
5 1/2 cups steamed veggies: 6pts
1 tbsp red curry paste: 0pts
1/2 cup salsa: 0pts
2 tbsp light cream: 2pts
1 slice cheese: 1pts
2 servings beef and potato nacho casserole: 13pts
1/4th avocado: 2pts
1 arnolds sandwich thin: 1pts
1/2 serving nutella: 2pts
1 serving jam: 1pts
Total for the Day: 44/44

I'm okay with that!

You need breaks, but don't be too hard one yourself about making up for them. It gets easy to be in a perpetual state of making up for shit you did earlier in the week. You're allowed to chill out and give yourself a day, you don't owe that time to anyone, its yours.

Also... you and your friends sure do love your curry.

Nom nom nom! I LOVE curry! I think it's now considered the national dish in England! I make a lush chick pea dhansak that is really hearty, tasty and filling and has less than 400 calories for a pretty hefty portion. I think I might have that tonight!

Don't stress about taking a day off - if you're feeling a bit ropey and not up to it (rather than just in a 'can't be bothered' mood!) you could end up having to take more than one day off if you overdo it...

Thanks G, I have a hard time letting myself relax. Sometimes I feel like its copping out!

Um, they really do love my curry, but I'm not sure where that came from this week! :)

Patsy - I'm sorry I haven't responded to your post yet, I have read it, but I've been sort of taking it easy (ie: Lazy) today.

Oh please post your recipe! I would love to try making it!

I am trying not to stress about it! :)
