Check-In: Day 9

Sometimes, plans need to change last minute. If you know me at all, you know I’m not good with sudden departures from what I think is going to happen. I’m working on it, but it’s a process. So yesterday when a meeting was scheduled RIGHT during my normal work out time, I had to make changes on the fly. Instead of doing my NTC, I decided to go on a walk around the waterfront seeing as the weather was nice and cool. Yesterday, I did not feel like working out, so I think this was a good compromise to still get that activity in, but to take it a little easier by briskly walking. Plus, I enjoy the alone time and spend it listening to my favorite podcasts! Win Win Win!

For dinner I had salmon which is a little higher in calories and fat, but I know they’re good for me so I went for it. We use the Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Sriracha-Glazed Salmon recipe from Skinnytaste and it’s sooooooo good. I recommend the Skinnytaste website and cookbook if you’re looking for low fat/low calorie recipes. I honestly haven’t tried one I didn’t like!

Tonight is going to be a little tough because it’s my boyfriend’s birthday and I plan on getting him a slice of his favorite cake (banana!) on my way home from work. My thought is I’ll only get one slice and hopefully he’ll be kind enough to give me a bite! We usually split and he’s trying to eat healthier with me, so I’m sure he will do the right thing and be a gentleman about it. 🙂

So guys, that’s it! Another day in the books. Hope everyone is having a happy huuump daaaay (Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike)!
