I took a nice long walk to the store today. It was gorgeous out, I needed to pick up a few things from the store, so I left the car at home and hoofed it. Completely worth it and it felt so good to get out of the house. I can already tell my skin is finally losing that pasty ‘librarian who is always indoors’ tone.
The problem? I ended up needing to put on the air conditioner. All I can think of whenever I turn that thing on for the first time in the year is how big my electric bill will be (have mercy on me and check out my books). As the weather heats up, I know taking a walk outside won’t be as comfortable as it is now (unless I go very early in the morning). The treadmill and desk bike are gathering dust so, I’ll switch to those when it gets really hot.
One of the things I grabbed at the store is more of that pre-prepped chicken from Trader Joes for my salads. Yes, that is a lot of cheese. No, I don’t care what you think. If in the end I’m still around 1000 calories (remember, I’m on Saxenda so, my calories are kept lower than a normal diet) and I’ve had some decent activity during my day, Imma eat some damn cheese.
This was my main meal for the day, other than snacking. I’m gonna try and be more diligent on peal prep on my non-work days. Work days, I’m super prepared; I can fill in my food diary first thing in the morning because I already know what the rest of the day will be. When I’m off, it’s chaos. We’ll see how that goes in the future.
