Thank you guys for your sweet comments! I responded to each of you in the last post comments section. :) I really appreciate your support!! I’m here in VA now blogging it up from a Hampton Inn and Suites! Gotta heart free wifi.
Quick back up – last night pretty much ended with packing, finishing up work and being EXHAUSTED from the 8-mile walk. I know it may not seem like much, but for me – it was a lot and wore me out! haha I ended up at 1,788 calories, 259 carbs, 55 fat grams and 71 protein grams. I was done eating… but my calories were low and I was starving. So I had some good old campbell’s soup – double noodle! Haha Who knows when I bought that can? Kinda scary now that I say that…. Anywho, here’s what I ate.
Today I got up, walked 4 miles, finished packing, worked and hopped in the car with Austin’s parents and two brothers for the drive to Charlottesville, VA. I think I did okay as far as eats… I got a 6” sub for lunch at Subway and had grilled salmon with a plain baked potato and a small salad with light dressing for dinner. I did have too many snackie foods in the car though. But in all honesty I was hungry! Maybe from the 8 miles yesterday and 4 today and not sleeping well? I dunno – but I wanted lots of food. And sour patch kids. Haha We were in the car ALL day. I got lots of work done (thank you, aircard!), finished a book, started a new book and watched a Sex and the City episode.
Book review time! Janice Kaplan’s A Job to Kill For. This is the second Lacy Peterson mystery novel and it was SO cute. As good as the first, but in a different way. The first was good because I loved the mystery and the newness of it. This mystery wasn’t as good, although it did stump me, but I enjoyed her personal life more in this one if that makes sense. It was a cute, quick simple read and I’d recommend it. I give it a 4 out of 5. It would have been a 5 if only the mystery had been a bit more compelling. And it felt a little short? Still - great book! We checked in to the hotel at 10 p.m. and I got in bed to read The Lovely Bones. I ended up at 1,992 calories, 221 carbs, 72 fat grams and 112 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.
So I'm starting the Lovely Bones.... do you plan to see the movie? I don't know if I can... the book is making me SO sad!! I mean it's good but DANG!
P.S. Austin's grandmother is hanging in there. She was moved out of ICU today. We're not sure if they're going to continue the radiation or not.... we hope to know more tomorrow.
