When Irish Eyes are Smiling
I was certainly smiling when I got on the scale this morning to find the numbers had gone down, ever so slightly! It's not an official loss because I hadn't logged my gain last week (bad girl, I know) but I'm back where I started which is fine with me. At least I know I lost this week no matter what my journal says. I really think the exercise is helping not only to burn calories but also control my appetite. Duh, right?
Even though I'm not Irish, my kids are (via their dads) so we always make a big fuss about the holiday. And, even though we are all mostly-vegetarian, we break down a couple of times a year for special occasions. Today happens to be one of those days. There's corned beef & cabbage in my crockpot (at appx 11 POINTS per serving) and my Irish Soda Bread is cooling on the counter (at a surprisingly low 2 POINTS per slice) so with a 13 POINT meal and the couple of beers that are sure to be included, I'll be watching my intake for the early part of the day and will definitely be hopping on the treadmill again tomorrow morning.
Have a Beauty-Full Day!
