Day 266 & 267: Home Shopping, Halloween Eating, Dining Room is on the Way, SYTYCD is BACK!

Yes, that's Austin in our pendant light in our living room. Let's back up...

Tuesday was a busy day! I started out exhausted – blah – and the allergy problems were back in full force. Double blah. It was nasty, rainy and muggy. Argh. Some girl hit Austin on his way into the office. Thankfully he was okay and it was totally her fault but I hate that for him. :( I worked, went to the gym during lunch, worked and went to the gym after work! I got in 6 miles, but I had tons of crap snacks… couldn’t help it. Was CRAVING CHOCOLATE and nothing could stop me… Because of the rain traffic was still bad when I left the gym so I ran errands around work (Perimeter) instead of home (Northpoint). I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond for a sink caddy (somewhere for the sponge and cleaner to go in the kitchen!). Afterwards I went to TJ Maxx – found great vases and 4 placemats for the dining room! Then I headed to look for vase filler. After hitting up Homegoods and Michael’s to no avail, I found luck at Target for river rock and small wicker balls, and Pier 1 for branches and a large wicker ball. Z Gallerie was closed. Who closes at 7 p.m.? Z Gallerie. Argh. And I had no luck at World Market. I finally got home at 8:30 to pizza. Blah. Austin worked on putting together furniture and I set up all the dining room items and cooked lunch and dinner for the next day. Unfortunately, he got step 2 of 25 incorrect so the whole thing has to be disassembled and then reassembled. He wasn’t happy – on top of the accident this morning I think it was a bad day for him. So, it was bedtime. We didn’t get done nearly all that we wanted to but let’s be honest – it’s hard to get stuff done on the weeknights!
Boo. So… I just got in all of the food I ate into Spark People. Like I knew it would be… it was alarming. Aside from my regular healthy breakfast sandwich/yogurt, a lean cuisine/bread for lunch and my two standard snacks (vitatop & cheez its). I had these at work in the afternoon slump:

1.5 Publix sugar cookies with frosting
3 Hershey’s Kisses
1 starburst
1 mini twix
1 mini kit kat

I’m not going to lie – not ONCE did I even kind of feel full. What’s wrong with me? Total binge. I’m disappointed and don’t know what caused it. Just tired + feeling like crap + TOM? I dunno – but I do know that this is not good. :( I ended up at 2,518 calories, 273 carbs and 91 fat grams. O. M. G. Here’s what I ate.

Wednesday was a bit better. I felt worse, but wasn’t as hungry for crap snacks (thank GAWD!) haha I basically worked, walked during lunch, worked more, walked more after work and headed home to cook creamy chicken tostados and do “house stuff” – iron curtains, do laundry, etc. I also watched So You Think You Can Dance – YAY – it’s back! And a silly/cute/pretty bad movie – Enchanted. Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey and are so cute, and James Marsden is just so pretty. Love him! This was a much better day – I ended up at 1,698 calories, 206 carbs and 43 fat grams. Yay!! Much better – especially with the 6 miles I walked factored in. Here’s what I ate.
P.S. The dining room is really coming along great, but it HAS to be painted. My stuff just doesn't look right in a red room!! I hope to paint or have it painted soon!

Yay for lots of shopping and walking! Sounds like you're doing a great job - don't dwell on the lil candy binge. Seems like your maintenance is going SO well!!! I have candy/snack binges almost every other day...hahaha (maybe the reason I'm not losing like you did? just a thought ;) ) anyways, sorry about the allergies, I definitely feel your pain. Random question, how fast do you walk on the treadmill?

It's almost the weekend again!!! :)

I have to tell you...I LOVE the movie Enchanted! It's so freaken cute! AND...I met James Marsden. He was filming a movie in Pitt when I lived there a few years ago and came into the restaurant I worked at EVERY day for lunch and would call home and talk to his kids. It was the cutest thing ever. Been a fan ever since!
