Saturday started off with good news at Weight Watchers. I lost 1 pound! My hard work and diligence paid off and I was excited! But I hadn’t slept well and I think that piece of the puzzle started me out on a disjointed day.
As is my usual routine, I did not have breakfast before going to WW. I pick up coffee on the way and take water with me, but that holds me through the meeting. Breakfast usually comes after. However after WW I went directly to my sister Ele’s church to help with the monthly rummage sale. I usually try to take something with me to hold me over but didn’t. We did get coffee half way through the day and although the other ladies got snacks, I declined.
It wasn’t until after we closed the sale at 2pm that I got the chance to eat. Ele and I picked up Ralph at the house and went to our go to spot, Picasso’s. I of course got my go to favorite, pepper and egg sandwich.
It did not disappoint! Especially since I hadn’t eaten all day! I think it was the not eating all day that set me off on a difficult evening. I kept looking around for something to snack on. I wasn’t really hungry, but I think it was a combo of being tired from not sleeping well and maybe not having enough real fuel that made me like that. I haven’t had an evening like that in a while, and I really didn’t like it.
I slept well last night and feel like I’m going to be much more on track today, which is good since we’ve got some snacks around due to Super Bowl this evening. It’ll just be Ralph and me, but I still need to be cautious, which I will be.
Haven’t talked about books much lately, but I just finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.
This was a beautifully written book as was his other book, The Kite Runner. It is not always a happy story, but I really enjoyed it.
I finally got on the bandwagon with everyone else in the English-speaking world ( and probably the non-English speaking world!) and I’m reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
I’m not far into it yet but it certainly pulls you into the action of the story right away. I like that. I’ve heard a lot of people say how much they like this so I’m looking forward to some serious reading today. It’ll be good to have something to do between the commercials during the Super Bowl! 😉
I’ll share Saturday’s beautiful sunrise.
It actually got much more beautiful as the sun came up. Unfortunately, I was driving and couldn’t get the really good shots. This will have to do. Hello, Gnarly Tree!
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Go Giants!
