Gosh, this was my first true 'cheat' day in the 3 months... why during the 30 day challenge??? Cause I just felt I needed chocolate and the only ones in my pantry were some Hawaiian macadamia nuts covered in chocolate. So, I gave in and figured I'd be 'good' the rest of the day.. until dinner when we went to Shabu-Shabu and I ate some white rice... just a little, but still was a cheat. Did I make the 'allowed' 80/20? Probably... do I feel good about that? Nope. I should 'cause I ate cabbage, lots of meat (pork and two kinds of beef), seaweed, cucumbers, etc. BUT I had a great time at dinner. When I went to Hawaii after the earthquake/tsunami, I lived with a family who took GREAT care of me and my teen... the husband was here doing some work, so hubby and I took him out to dinner. THAT'S what made my whole day! It was so good to get caught up on everything that's happened in his family's life since I left Hawaii late April. WOW... I guess I DO feel good about the 80/20 (just guilty about the chocolate).
What I do feel good about was doing Pilates today... harder than do-dah, since I haven't done Pilates in MONTHS... yeah, before my gallbladder went bad, so that puts it around this time last year. Why Pilates? I dunno... just a weird hair up my bum that was there from morning to night. Thus the chocolate and the Pilates. Can I blame it on hormones? Nah. But, it did feel good to use my tummy muscles and NOT have pain like I used to have!
