Wow, what a day! I knew it was going to be busy, but geez! I left the house at 9 am and didn't get home until 6 pm! First stop was the gym for my core/cardio class and then a little weight training in the weight room. I took a shower and got all "ready" at the gym so we could go right on over to the mall and have lunch and then have the kids pictures taken. The kids did really well with their pictures and the lady ended up snapping SO many shots, that I had a horrible time choosing. I actually ended up buying one of their framed, matted Trilogy things. (3 different pictures of the kids in one big frame). It was a lot($)..but I hardly EVER do that so I justified it. Plus, these are some of the best pictures my kids have ever taken so I couldn't resist. Anyway, for lunch yesterday, we went to Chick-Fil-A (Thanks Rach for the giftcard!). I ordered my usual--The Chargrilled Chicken Salad. I decided to just attempt eating it without any dressing--just a little black pepper on top and surprisingly...it was good! I mean, I didn't miss the dressing at ALL. Plus I was SO proud of myself afterwards! ha ha Sadly, I bit a chunk out of my tongue while I was eating my salad and now I have a very swollen, sore mouth. Like seriously, I had to go home and take some Ibuprofen and have a *drink* to take the pain away. It felt like I had an earache, sore throat and major headache--all from a bitten tongue.
For dinner, I made Matt and I up the chicken salad recipe from Phase 1 and we ate that with some Kashi whole grain crackers and a protein shake.
Not my best day of exercising ever...but not the worst either. I did burn almost 500 cal. at the gym this morning.
