Shopping and Pizza

Today was my rest/ recovery day! It was a good day to have off to I woke up to a dark cold gray rainy morning. I was able to do a little shopping today I was in desperate need of some new workout clothing! I have had my old stuff for years. My Mom was off today so we ventured out together in our sweats around 10:30 no hair done, or make up on and that was fine for 10:30 but we were gone out and about shopping until 1:30 at 1:30 sweats, no makeup and scary hair are no longer acceptable in public!!! Or are they???
 I picked up 3 tops, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 new sports bras and socks! I am glad I was able to find some new gear! I love TjMaxx nothing like getting good stuff for a deal :)

Today I never really felt overly hungry. I must have kept myself busy and my mind off of food!  If it wasn't for feeling snappy and the headaches, I don't know that I would have remembered to eat. So today my daily caloric intake ended up being only 1039  calories OOPS!!! I however went to Costco today and indulged in EVERY sample that was there today so I'm guessing that I probably consumed an additional 150-200???   I couldn't figure out how to account for those calories. . . . .

For dinner tonight my family wanted to do Papa Johns. Um hello not so diet friendly! I had my hubby stop at the store and grab us some salad so I mixed up a large ceasar salad with fresh grated parmesan cheese and added that to my pizza. I wanted to have 2 different kinds of pizza I wanted the veggie and the bbq chicken bacon. I knew I shouldn't eat both slices so I cut them in half and it was perfect! I was able to enjoy a guilt free pizza dinner with the fam :)
This yummy plate of food only cost me 330 Calories including the red sauce.

What a fun blog, Lindsay! As I looked at the "old you" I really didn't recognize you. I just can't tell you how much I admire your determination. I'm certain I couldn't lose that much weight because I just don't have the discipline. I'm so excited for Red Rock!! Go ladies of MP!! Let's run together SOON.

I love this blog!! I recently read a cute saying..."He who can’t find time for exercise, will have to make time for illness."...
You are so smart to take your health so serious, and having fun while you do it is awesome!!

Cute stuff! I also love Marshalls, TJMaxx and Ross. They can be hit or miss but have such great deals that it's worth checking out.

Way to go for pairing your pizza with salad. I need to do that more often.
