First off: Fantastic start to the day/week. A 4 lb loss over last week. Last week was a HUGE win for me in every way. I tracked every single day and tracked probably 95% or more of my calories (I know I missed a few things but overall I did very well), I didn’t let any stress from work get to me, and I exercised twice. So I’m really happy.
And then my run. Completed W1 of the program (was gonna do it yesterday but I’m glad I didn’t because I had a busy night at work).
Finally, my birthday dinner (I turn 26 tomorrow). We went to this nice seafood place in South Austin called Perla’s. Expensive, but SO worth it. They fly in their seafood fresh every day. I tried raw oysters for the first time (they were okay, not a fan of the sliminess) as well as grilled octopus. And for my main dish, I got pan roasted Alaskan halibut with lump crab and an avocado and tarragon risotto. I gotta say, I never would have thought to pair avocado with risotto, but it’s freaking delicious. Gives it an even creamier texture. Not pictured, the side of brussels sprouts. I also had this salted butterscotch pudding thing for dessert. Amazing.
I’m sure I went over my calories today, but I don’t care because (1) I exercised today, and (2) it was my birthday dinner.
Today was all around an awesome day.
