Weigh In: down 1.1 pounds for a total of 6.1 pounds this year
Not the best weigh in but it's still going in the right direction and I had two splurges instead of one. Not happy about that but it is what it is so we're just going to move forward and put that behind us.
I've started adding a little exercise in the mix. Monday I rode my bike 3.5 miles but then suddenly got a splitting headache and came back home. I took a couple of ibuprofen and a lot of water and it subsided after a while.
While riding I thought I saw Chuck pull into the neighborhood so I stop the bike and put my foot on a curb and wave and smile. Wasn't Chuck. I have no idea who it was but I did get a strange look. Ugh. I hate doing stupid stuff like that.
That evening I decided to head back out since the headache was gone. This time was walking. Chuck decided to join me and we walked a 5k. Perfect evening for a walk. I got in 6.6 miles total that day and got to see a gorgeous sunset.
Tuesday I had to go to the grocery store. It's January here, folks, but it was almost 70* outside. So I dropped the top on the car and cranked up the radio and enjoyed my ride. Love it!! Nothing like the sunshine and some good music to set the mood for the day.
I didn't really make any spectacular recipes to share so far. Just things like baked chicken and boiled eggs.
Now I have a little mini rant I need to get off my chest. I've noticed on Facebook and elsewhere that people are really getting uppity with their eating and exercise and just about everything.
For instance, one author has some wine and cheese and people get all up in his business telling him he's not paleo. Others criticizing when another isn't low carb enough. Still others feel they need to police blogs to make sure they really are Whole30 compliant on everything. And if you don't exercise like they think you should then you're wrong.
All of it is nonsense. Geez! Chill out and let people eat and exercise how they want. We don't need food police. Do what works for you. I just don't understand the need to tell others what to do.
So I am officially not paleo, low carb or any other label. I have paleo and low carb tendencies but do my own thing. Take that, food police. I'm Kelly.
That being said, I will say if recipes are low carb or paleo or whatever. I can't give Weight Watcher points because I really don't know how the points are figured.
Ok. Got that off my chest.
Wishing you a very happy Hump Day and don't listen to the haters. Do your thing if it works.
