Anyways, I wasn't planning on going for a walk tonight, but I did. It's so fucking HOT, I'm DYING. Not literally.
That's why I wasn't planning on going for a walk. I was going to put it off until tomorrow, but then I realized; this is TEXAS. Never mind that, it's SUMMER. It is going to be just as hot tomorrow as it was today. So why put it off? And anyway, your metabolism get's an extra boost when it's hot, because it needs to burn energy to cool itself off.
I'm really glad that I'm losing weight in a healthy way, because I'm reading this pro-ana blog (my guilty pleasure- don't ask me why I find it so entertaining!) and her metabolism is so shot that she gained 20 pounds by eating NORMALLY for ONLY TEN DAYS! Holy crap! I am SO GLAD that's not me.
So, my plan is to wake up early tomorrow and walk to the Starbucks with my new book. (Mere Christianity- I'm an atheist, did I mention?) and eating one of my pumpkin flax granola bars and a tall soy cafe misto. Yum, yum!
I just ate 126 grams of grapes, which is about....87 calories, and I am FULL. They were delicious grapes, too. Today, after my last entry, I went out with Kerry and we decided that, instead of Starbucks, we would go to TGI Fridays instead. I got the Jack Daniels chicken breast with shrimp, and two orders of veggies instead of mashed potatoes. TGI Fridays actually serves reasonably good serving sizes- at least, what I got was a reasonable size. Instead of getting a dessert from the restaurant, we walked over to the Cold Stone Creamery. I drank the small yogo smoothie. By the way, what is up with all of these restaurants coming up with these psuedo-clever size names? It's SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE, and maybe EXTRA-LARGE for the bonafide tubbos. Anyways, while we ate, we talked about the difference in serving sizes in Europe and America, and why America is so nutritionally challenged. I really think that the American serving sizes need to be scaled down a ton, especially when there's people walking around who think what they give you in restaurants is a serving size. *sigh* No WONDER we're so big!
