I am nearing my "TAC" total allowable catch (usually used in fisheries...) for my sweets count. I had ice cream last night which was my last sweet for the week. I am not sure the tally is going to work well for me, but I'm going to keep it up and see how the next few days go. It would have been weird to turn down the ice cream as I was sharing 1 pint with 3 friends, so we were actually only having 1 serving-- go us. Still, I have been eating too much overall. I am going to actively begin to scale back, while eating more healthily in general-- by HEALTH I don't mean low fat, low cal, low this and that. I mean WHOLE foods. For example, last night's dinner was delish! I made pasta with a shrimp, tomato, spinach, garlic topping. I had one serving and really felt full! It was just about having the right amount of something GOOD to eat, not just getting by because I can get away with eating THIS much of that low-cal thing. So here is to whole foods at the right serving size. Teacher, Powderhouse and another friend and I played Apples to Apples and had a great time!
Midwest: is my roommate, good guy, but cleaning habits can drive me nuts. Luckily he's away on business a lot. RunJess: is my running buddy who lives closeby. She's been a great addition to my life and keeps me doing more workouts than I ever would have done on my own. CrazyLady: is actually another running buddy- an older friend at work who *can* be very intense, but is generally just a unique individual who adds to my life, she's also a fast runner and luckily tolerates my slowness. Frisbee: though he could go by many names, this will be the tag for the boyfriend. He lives on the cape and he rocks my world. He runs, plays frisbee and works for an enviro non-prof. Teacher: is a friend who just moved to town. Very good college friend/roommate with whom I have weekly dinners. She's honest and tells it like it is, not sure I've ever had a better friend. Powdergirl: is another college friend with whom I spend a lot of time. She lives over near Powderhouse Blvd, hence the name. Another very good friend I'm lucky to have in the area. Pescatarian: is a friend of Frisbee, the boyfriend. Pesc and I became friends pretty easily and the fact that we can actually piss each other off through chat conversation makes me think I might mention him on here. Genuinely good guy though... Nice Guy: Another college friend, overall very good guy, possible running buddy and intermittently "involved" (loosely) with some of my other buds.
