What a lovely day spent with my mother here:
We brought along the 2 month old golden lab that she is training to be a service dog.
Everyone, meet Lexus...
And here she is in the ocean for the second time in her life:
Waves are cool, right?
After a few minutes of exploration of "the deep" I took this picture:
I wanted a pic of me for here, but perhaps she was a little far away....still hate it!
Yes, a very good day. :) I have to admit though, I knew going in that I was going to eat an unhealthy lunch. Eyes wide open folks. I just couldn't pass up fish n' chips at the beach! Sooo goood. My mom is the queen of fish and chip pushing since it's her favourite thing to do. As my concession to better health, I didn't eat all my fries. Eh, eh see? Not a total loss, me.
To compensate for what I'm sure could be scientifically calculated as an assload of calories at lunch, I ate a rather small dinner. It was challenging 'cause Jason, dear husband that he is, made garlic mashed potatoes. Smelling them cooking on the stove alone is an olfactory delight! He just mentioned that he could have eaten my entire portion of potatoes in one bite. Yup, he's watching me type my blog this eve. Nothing on TV, my dear? :)
Of course, after my culinary indescretion of battered and fried loveliness, I had to work out. Put in some bike time with weights. Probably burned off the fries. Or not. :P
One small note: I waiver between feeling really good about losing 15 lbs. and thinking, yeah, I look thinner, and thinking, OMG I am so fat, what the hell is going on here! Pictures from today don't help with the latter. I guess it's just more motivation to do what needs to be done to be happy with those pictures. So I am doin' it.
A few more pics....
Exercise: 35 min.
