Today was full of hits and misses. I was supposed to get up early this morning to go the gym, but of course my bed was so warm and inviting that leaving it at 6 am was not happening. To compensate, I walked 2 miles to work, lugging my laptop bag the whole way there. I ate a fairly unhealthy lunch (I just can’t resist mac and cheese – it is my weakness). However, I managed to consume only one drink at happy hour today (instead of my usual 2-3) AND I resisted the sliders and fries that the other girls got. I came home and made myself dinner and even though it was bland, it was carbless and reasonably healthy. Tomorrow I would like to make something a little bit more appetizing, though. Will scour recipes tomorrow at work.
