Day 286: Walking, Reading & Weighing a Little Heavy

Dinner: Shrimp Scampi... as per usual my meals don't look nearly as good as they taste - promise!

Yesterday was just kind of a blah day. Tense at work, lots to do, ready to get home! I did get in 6.5 miles, got home and ate shrimp scampi with Austin – fun! We watched a really good Law & Order SVU that had Robin Williams as a guest star/killer – SO good! Austin headed out to play poker and I decided that because I’m DYING to get to a Karin Slaughter book I would spend the evening finishing Speak Softly, She Can Hear. I started it and read about 50 pages and was just kind of blah. Sunday before the library I got more into it and now I’m dying to see what happens! I read about 225 pages last night, but couldn’t keep my eyes opened and passed out. Now I lack only 65, and hope to read the rest today! Yesterday I ended up at 1,789 calories, 295 carbs and 25 fat grams. Here’s what I ate. Again, pretty dang high on carbs. :( I’m working on it though! I also think I may need to lower my calories a bit. My weight is up to 116 and that’s just not where I want to be. I want to be 115 or below, preferably 113. I’m going to give it one more week but if my weight hasn’t gone back down some (in the right direction!) I’m going to decrease calories some. Maybe 1,800 is too many. I don’t know! I also REALLY want my HRM, perhaps I’ll ask for it for the big 27 coming up! K – off to catch up on your blogs! Hope you’re all having great weeks.

Weird start... you'll hate the main character for being so spineless but then it's like you MUST know what's going to happen!!!

I think we're all experiencing some kind of yucky summer weight gain. (I know I am, at least.) It might have something to do with your body retaining a lot of water.

Shrimp scampi looks good to me!
6.5 miles...wow! Are you still walking or have you taken up running now? Either way, that is awesome.

Pissy: finished it last night - it's all yours!

Mica: Really? Blah - i hoep that's what it is. I feel pooey.

Thinspired: I love shrimp! It was super lemony. Nope - no running - just try to get in 6.5 now 3 days/week with 3.5 during lunch and 3 after! Thank gawd for books or i'd probably not make it! I'll be walking and reading and before i know it's it's time to go home!

i think the shrimp looks delicious :) i have got to go pick up one of the books you suggest...they all seem so good!

are you doing 6.5 all at once? i find exercise needs time to catch up with the body - so you may find your weight going back down next week based on what you are doing this week.
