I completely had a cheat night last night. 2 beers and a shared plate of italian nachos with Chad. Completely worth it. Have you ever had a plate of nachos with mozzarella, italian sausage, pepperoni, and peppers before and said, "No. That's not awesome. I'll pass."??? It was a really nice evening and I don't regret it for a second. I didn't eat nearly as much of it as my friend...I was stuffed after a few bites. However, the plate of food did disappear...don't tell his trainer. You can tell mine all you want...she's on a video tape and won't say anything back to you.
Another reason I allowed myself to cheat last night: I don't have to go anywhere today, so I don't have to face my jeans. I get to stay in my favorite pajama pants all day long...watch tv, play with the kids, do my exercise, take a nap...whatever I feel like, in my pajama pants. I have had these pajama pants for so long they officially wore a hole in the butt seam...and I still prefer them over my jeans right now.
2 mile workout today. WEEE!!! I can't wait til the weather gets a bit nicer so that I can take the kids outside for a walk. It'll be so much easier to keep off the weight of Christmas cookies if I can take a brisk walk. I'm quite the cookie baker...put in your orders now.
Things that I am looking forward to this weekend: dinner date with my husband, The Twits with my kids, and fantasy football draft.
Now, off to make good choices and get thin!
