Today was a great day to spend with people close to me. It also turned out to be a great day to eat. I suppose you should allot yourself more calories on celebration days, right? Either way - I went WAY over my calorie goal for today. I ate good food - some mediocre food - drank beer and had a great day. Not every day is going to be perfect and that's okay! I don't really celebrate the 4th of July so I won't be drinking or having any lavish bbq's.
The birthday celebrations don't end today though. I'm sure there will be more tomorrow and Sunday. A cool down and attempt to get back into the swing of things Monday will be a great start to a new week as well. I don't plan to go over my calorie goal every day this weekend. I should be able to keep it simple the next few days.
I did some good alternative exercise today. I don't have to clean my place of residence often because someone else does - but I knew I was having my sister over that is highly allergic to my kittys. I decided to take 2 hours in the morning to vacuum all of the furniture, floor, dust and do anything possible to make it a better experience for her. I'm glad I was able to get it out of the way because I wouldn't have wanted to do it later.
