Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! I put on a skirt that has been too small for forever...and it is way too big!! Of course I noticed as I was halfway out the door that it was like falling off but it just made me so happy. That's two days in a row that I've noticed my clothes fitting really differently and it feels awesome.
Here is how I did yesterday:
Burned 2685 calories
Consumed 1628 calories
Deficit of 1057 calories
So yesterday Husbandcake packed snacks for me in the morning, which was so sweet, and included this little gem:
Then I got home to an awesome surprise...Husbandcake FINALLY got his bike. Now up until now I've barely been biking and staying close to the house because I really despise doing things alone. But last night we set out with the intention of riding the 5 mile round trip to the grocery store. We got as far as downtown Clayton (a little under a mile) when we realized something. Neither of us have really gone biking in the past maybe 10-15 years. Also we live on a mountain so getting back would be a little difficult. So we decided we would just ride around the neighborhood instead of getting to the grocery store and being too tired to come home.
WHAT a workout!!! Getting back up the hill to my house was pretty intense. I discovered that I can barely bike uphill. This whole biking to the store thing is going to take a bit of practice too - I never appreciated how much work it would be to bike in a not-flat area. Husbandcake could not have been nicer or more patient when I struggled to get my bike and all my weight up, he just rode up the hills and stopped at the top waiting for me to get there.
I'm really happy that everything weight loss related ended up going really well yesterday. In other aspects of my life it didn't go as nicely. I am extremely lucky to have fabulous friends...some of them with strong personalities and while I like all of them, sometimes they don't all get along and it just kind of gets to me. That coupled with me being very sensitive about truly silly things made for a very emotional day!! I'm hoping today is a little easier overall :) and that it goes by very smoothly with my walk at lunch and everything later. And I hope you guys have a fantastic day in EVERY aspect of your life!!
