I think I'm gonna need some downtime soon. Another whirlwind weekend.
We still have the Japanese exchange students staying with us. They arrived Friday afternoon, very nervous, very excited. We had pizza and fruit with a yogurt dip. I had two thin pieces (as planned) and managed to stay within my calorie level quite nicely. We also carved some pumpkins. They don't have Halloween there so this was pretty fun.
On Saturday we went out to a Japanese restaurant for lunch - this made the girls VERY happy. However, I ate too much rice and beef teriyaki. Then for "dinner" I ate a full size Coffee Crisp bar. But it was very good, and I still managed to juggle my day around to keep in my calorie range. I figured it was Halloween, and I NEVER do something like that, so why not.
Yesterday we went shopping to a HUGE mall. I am SO not a mall person, but it wasn't that bad. Not alot of great choices in the food fair. Why is it that healthier meals are so expensive. I had a small side of rice and the insides of a vegetable samosa (skipped the fried batter part, even though it does taste good). For dinner the girls wanted to cook for us. They made a vegetable curry dish with rice. It tasted quite good. I've never had something like this. At the end of the day my calories were OK, but my carb level was definitely VERY high and protein was next to nil. Oh well, I'm balancing that out today.
My food choices haven't been stellar the last few days, but I am working hard to stay focused and not let it become an all out crazy fest. They'll ony be here until early Wednesday morning, so it's short term.
While at the mall I had two very exciting events! First, I bought this pair of jeans ....
