Not a lot to say today. I went to the gym and while I didn’t do a whole lot, I did something and that much is good. I’ve been tracking my food every day and have something like 25 days in a row tracked though to be honest a few of those days are pretty shady. We’ve got to a few social functions and sometimes the tracking just goes out the window. Those are the days I don’t bother adding into my Food Diary blog and just skip over, but I do at least start tracking, and track whatever I can over the course of those days.
Tomorrow I am planning on hitting the gym again and maybe if I am fully functional early enough, get in there on Saturday too before we head out to friends’ for the late afternoon and evening. We’ll be celebrating a birthday and there will be food and drinks, and the hard part will be not eating all the foods, or trying to drink a little of everything. I am so envious of those of you who can go to a party and maintain your control and eat as sensibly as possible and not over indulge. Sometimes I feel like I did good at an event for me, but its not good in general. Just better than my usual.
I posted a few pics to Instagram today, ranging from (several of) the dogs, to my sweaty post-workout self & my heart rate monitor, and the dog pictures are of course instantly popular. Sashi is the most uncooperative dog ever when I try to get a cute photo of her unless she is outside playing, and even then I have to snap dozens to maybe get one good one I want to share. Unless she’s asleep, good luck getting one!
This picture was probably only possible because she was resting, and because I wasn’t trying to get her to do anything. I wish I had a dog that I could pose with treats balanced on its head or something silly and fun like that, but I just don’t work with either of them enough to come close. Pretty much the only thing they have done is knowing they need to sit before I will give out cookies or dinner, and sometimes before they are allowed to come back into the house.
I’m hoping tonight to finish reading my current book, and maybe move onto the next Stephanie Plum novel but I’m not sure that is happening. I still have like 200+ pages left in the current read and being as I’ve been kinda tired all day, I don’t think tonight will be a read until 3am kind of night. I seriously cannot believe I’ve already finished 92 books this year though. I read 85 for all of last year, and 33 the year before that. It was halfway through last year that I got my smart phone and the books started adding up. More so after I bought my Nook at Christmastime.
