Bad diet day yesterday

August 5th, 2010 at 03:18 pm

Actually, you could call it a gorging day. I knew it was going to happen, and I let it happen, but now I have to get back on wagon.

It started with my soul food lunch, hand delivered to my office for $10. (Fundraiser) Even though I did choose the baked, not fried, chicken, it was pretty caloric, what with the mac & cheese, cornbread and greens dressed in oil -- and the chocolate cake for dessert.

Then we had an ice cream social -- supposed to be on the lawn, but it rained. But the food was still served in the cafeteria. I had TWO dips of chocolate ice cream with all the toppings -- in an edible shell, which I ate, of course. They also served big cookies, and I snagged an oatmeal raisin, which I saved for today's breakfast.

It was all delicious. I had a slice of zucchini bread for supper last night -- I thought I would skip supper entirely, but it seemed I needed something.

Today I'm back on track and I don't think my lapse yesterday will do real harm. Gotta kick up your heels once in a while!

On the financial front, nothing is happening. I did go into my settings and put real goals on my sidebar. I decided to raise my EF to $15,000, since that would cover 6 months of expenses (roughly). I figure a used car would cost about $15K as well. My housing -- well, I would LIKE to have $100K for a down payment, we'll see how it goes. That fund is in stocks and I'm not adding to it right now. It's mostly going into EF, with a $100 automatic payment going into the car fund. When I get those funded, I'll tackle the housing. Long haul, I know.

    I'm so jealous! I love soul food, and there's none to be found here, much less have delivered. Of course, if they did deliver soul food to our office, I'd put on 50 pounds, so it's just as well...
