What a Friday! I love Fridays. And who doesn’t.
Yesterday morning was intense work-wise but I coasted through the afternoon and met with the man and his work friends for happy hour and dinner at a local Irish pub. It’s exactly what I wanted on a Friday during Lent!
I must say that I am starting to feel smaller so that’s a positive. I haven’t seen much of a change on the scale, but that will come. I care more about the feeling than a number anyway. Now, let’s see how I did yesterday!
BREAKFAST – Kashi granola bar and hazelnut coffee. Coffee is so necessary, especially on Friday’s when I’m so excited for 5:00!
When it was time for lunch, I realized what I brought wasn’t Catholic friendly! I brought leftover chicken noodle soup….chicken!! OH NO! I thought about eating around the chicken, but who wants chicken broth for lunch? Not me. I decided to save it until Monday. A friend wanted to swing by HomeGoods for some pillows for her new apartment, so I went with her and come out $40 poorer! But, I got 5 frames! We got our engagement pictures back in November, we ordered them in December and now it’s March and we’re just now framing them. We still have some to frame, but it’s a start.
On our errand run, we stopped by Whole Foods! My all-time favorite. Sushi is on sale on Friday’s during Lent and boy was I excited. I was also excited about all the samples!!
LUNCH – Samples, blueberries and a tuna avocado roll!
Those samples really do help in keeping you full. I also had a little piece of cod marinated in some citrus. It was a sample and amazing. I will probably be purchasing the marinate for some fish during Lent.
As the day winded down, I was excited to meet up with friends and enjoy some cocktails and food!
I ordered 2 vodka and soda cocktails with 2 limes. Tasty enough to satisfy my want for alcohol and doesn’t totally destroy the diet.
What will kill your diet? Fried food! I split an appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip with 2 other people and then I split an order of fish and chips with the man. I only ate one of the fish and a handful of fries. This was nice because it satisfied my want for fried food, but I didn’t indulge too much. I was satisfied and felt pretty okay with it! All in all, I was pretty pleased with my day. I’m really looking forward to the 5K on Sunday! 🙂
