Day 287: Book Review, Another 6.5 miles and True Blood Deep Thoughts

Yesterday was another pleasant but uneventful Tuesday. I walked another 6.5 miles (3.5 miles during lunch at 4.0 mph 2, 1 and 0 incline and 3 miles after work at 4.0 mph and 0 incline). I also had a great abs and legs workout afterwards – woo! I got home to Austin cooking the yummy chicken sausage rotini (with rigatoni and feta instead of rotini and mozzarella – even better) and we settled in for the new True Blood. O. M. G. I just love that show. It never slows down – they just keep me on my toes. SPOILER. I’m SO GLAD it wasn’t Lafayette dead in that car… but the rando fake lady, really? And what is Sam’s deal with the statutory rapist? And what is the deal with the rando good-looking, pot-smoking dude the rapist is trying to hook Tara up with? And whoa – didn’t expect Anna Panquin to put it all out there like she did last night – geez. Love that she’s less white this season though – she was like REALLY pale last season. And what was that thing they were pushing around in the vampire dungeon/basement? Weird… was LaFayette’s crime against vampires? Selling V? Guess they don’t know about Stackhouse + his psycho now-dead ex-girlfriend killing that man. Hmmm. Okay – the end of my deep thoughts. LOVE it!

After the show I read the last 10 pages of Speak Softly, She Can Hear. It was good you guys. It really was. There was a while there when I was like O.M.G. just tell somebody your damn secret so you can live a normal life or do something to move on and when she finally did against her will it just kept me guessing. Good stuff – try to get to page 50 before deciding whether or not to keep reading!
After my book I got in bed at 9 p.m. and passed out. I think I made it through one episode of How I Met Your Mother but then I was GONE! I ended up at 1,795 calories, 283 carbs (eek!) and 39 fat grams. Here’s what I ate. My weight was still 116. Sigh. I’m sure the mountain o’carbs didn’t help but I’ll be honest – I was SO hungry all day. I really need to just bring a small sandwich to stay full instead of all these little snacks that add up to high carbs. I’m going to do that tomorrow. DEFINITELY! K – off to a friend’s for a homemade dinner then home for SYTYCD! Woo! Hope you all are having happy Wednesdays!

I've been hearing so much about True Blood lately, I guess I have to watch it and see what it's all about!
I know it can be frustrating being slightly "up" with the scale, but really, you are HARDLY that much higher than your goal weight, so please don't be too hard on yourself! :)
