I Like It Dirty

Beren and I went out for cocktails at our favorite martini bar last night, I thought I chose well when I selected the Dirty Martini but this morning I discovered that those babies are about 240 calories each, actually more than my beloved Cosmos! Ouch. I didn't plan on 400+ empty calories but was awfully glad I'd walked in the morning and had a fairly active (and on program) day up until that point. I do give myself some credit for not indulging in any appetizers at the bar, had saved my JC popcorn to enjoy when we got home. According to Sparkpeople, I consumed about 1,500 calories yesterday. Not a catastrophe but more than I'd expected so I'll be exercising more and eating less today.

I got up early and took a nice long walk to the park...

then came home and plugged in my menu...

We may be taking the bikes out for a spin, with this kind of weather it's a sin to be indoors!

Have a Beauty-Full Day,


  1. Your home city is so beautiful and gorgeous.I'd be totally motivated to get up and walk if I still had scenery like that (Unfortunately in Glasgow,the big green parks are full of junkies and shady characters)

    It's too depressing to think how many calories there are in cocktails,but alas it's the one biggest vice I have learned to limit.....or at least exercise my ass off in anticipation ;P


  2. Good for you for keeping up honey! Check out my fabulous Christmas giveaway if you haven't already!

  3. Cocktails will such up your calorie allowance fast. Good thing I'm not a lush.

  4. Miss Frangipani, thank you. Part of the reason I want to make this part-time home our full time residence is due to that park! Oh, and the gorgeous back yard, and the fact that the beach is only 10 minutes away...sigh...

  5. Thank you for the heads up, Kori, I'll be heading over to your blog and taking a peek!

  6. Ann-Marie, you are lucky..I admit to being somewhat of a obviously must reign in those tendencies if I'm ever to lose this weight!
