Primping and Pampering

My September 12, 2013 Goal
135 pounds 18% Body Fat
Why is it that whenever I travel and stay in a hotel, when I wake up my eyes are puffy and I look like shit? It happens all the time, and of course I am surrounded by mirrors at every angle. Mirrors everywhere!! Agh!!! 

My sis made breakfast burritos with sausage, green peppers, cheese, eggs, and other stuff. She had bought a bunch of bananas a few days ago that are starting to get brown, so that was a required part of breakfast for everybody lol. 

Instead of breakfast burritos, I ate the eggs, a banana, and about a cup of mixed fresh fruit (grapes, strawberries, and pineapple).

Around 10 am hubby and I went to the little fitness center and it was way too crowded. That is a good thing...more people are interested in fitness...but too crowded to train, so we left and went to the bank to get some needed cash and Target to get a new wallet for my husband. His current wallet is in bad shape. I also picked up some socks that I needed. I only packed one pair....duh Annette.

So, 11:30 we went back to the fitness area and it was LESS crowded so we decided to give it a go. I did Day 2 of my training.

Ate a roast beef sandwich for lunch and had a Michelob Ultra beer. Then I decided to pamper myself while my sis and her family went to the theme parks. I had my fill of the theme parks over the years, so we typically don't go anymore. 

I painted my toe nails, dyed the gray roots of my hair, placed an awesome glycolic mask on my face and  took the 2 hours needed to straighten my hair. It is raining, so no sitting out by the pool at this time. Maybe later.

Later in the day, I ate a couple of servings of dry honey nut cheerios, 6 oreo cookies, and a couple of fun size candy bars. That will be the extent of my junk food for the day. My goal is to keep my calories between 1500-1700 calories and I ate a number of calories in junk food, so no drinks for me tonite.

Steps I took today to get closer to my goal
