Yesterday was a pretty good day. I was busy at work and then I headed over to my sisters to use my brother-in-laws garage to change my brake pads. I am not a car person but I do take pride in the fact that I can change the oil and brake pads like a pro. My sister took notice and said that it looked like I lost some weight. The best part is that she didn't even know I had been trying so the compliment seemed pretty genuine.
Even though I got home late, I was still able to get 30 minutes exercise in while I was watching the hockey game (way to go Boston!). I ended up consuming just under 1600 calories for the day, which is right on target. I was even able to turn down several beer and regular soda offers from my sister, which I am proud of. A few weeks ago, I would have probably had about 2 or 10 beers while working on the car. Instead, I declined and enjoyed a homebrew while I watched the game later in the evening.
Here is how my eating for the day played out:
B: Egg Beater omelet with a slice of cheese
S: Greek yogurt
L: 4 oz. turkey breast, pickles
S: carrots, celery, orange
D: Subway 6in ham and cheese
S: beer and Tostidos Scoops
