"The aim of life is self-development. To realize one's nature perfectly-
that is what each of us is here for."
~Oscar Wilde

I was bored this afternoon, so I thought I would stop in for a quick little update.

Yesterday went well, eating wise I had no problems. Running went good, I got two miles in real quick when I got home, and got showered, and had something to eat before heading off to meet Tech to play some mini golf.

The date went well. I had made chocolate chip cookies the day before as I had mentioned, and I saved a few to take to him. So we played some mini golf, and hit some balls in the batting cages and went to part our separate ways, and I gave him the cookies, which he loved...but he had made cookies the night before and brought me some. So it was cute, it was like a little cookie exchange. Of course being a man, his were from the dough you buy at funraisers, and mine were homemade, but still it was totally the thought that counts.

And I was good, I really was tempted just to toss the cookies, being I don't normally even eat stuff like that anymore. But I had small bites of each (peanut butter and choc chip) and then tossed the rest. So it's kinda another NSV for me too. Just proof that the health thing is just a way of life now, For along time it was all or nothing for me. I couldn't just have a bite and stop. And somedays are still like that. But yesterday I had my small piece, and even though I wanted more, I was done.

And yes, they were good!

So Date #5 is in the works, probably towards the end of the week!

Other than that, nothing new and exciting on this front. Planning a 2.5 mile run tonight, even though I'm tired as heck (I had to go back to work after the date last night..computer problems, didn't get home till almost 11, yuck!). Then I'm making some tuna salad for dinner, and going to chop up a cantaloupe that I got on Friday that should be so yummy!

Anyways, I hope everyone is having great days, catch up with you soon!

Cookies continue to be one of the toughest things for me to stay away from. Too bad I don't live closer, I would have saved them.

Awwww! That is SO sweet! I love that he brought you cookies. And CONGRATS on only having a nibble of each. That is a huge success!!

Can't wait to hear all about date 5!

how exciting all around...a successful date with a thoughtful guy and not pigging out on cookies when under pressure and fatigue from work. Good for you!

CaRoLyN said...

RYC: I've done that too! I'll be talking to someone and say "My friend X ......" Especially when I am talking about food or weight loss etc. It's crazy but most of the time, you guys know what is going on with me more than some of my closest friends do!

Good job on the cookies~ they are definately my weakness. But I will get ONE and share it with my coworker.

Beware of the cookies..
I know it's hard to have to force yourself to run when your tired. Great dedication.

Godo for you going on a run before your active date! SOunds like it's going well. You're awesome to be able to just have a bite and then toss them. I always say I'll just have one bite and then it turns into a feeding frenzy if it's one of my trigger foods.

that IS really cute, him bringing you cookies... and like you said, even if they were the pre-fab kind, it's the thought that counts! good luck with date #5... :o)
