Happy Valentine's Day!

I never made it here yesterday. I don't have a whole lot to report. I normally have a day off from exercise on Friday's (this is optional) so I just did some Wii Fit stuff. I was a sub at my old job yesterday so the day was structured differently. Harold and I went out to eat last night. My first big test. We went to La Senorita - my favorite place to go. But last night I didn't get burritos or nachos or the combo plate. I ordered steak fajitas. It was a lowcarber's dream. After giving Harold the beans and rice, and after ignoring the tortillas in the little plastic warmer, I set about making a kind of hot salad. On one plate were sizzling beef, peppers, and onions. On another plate were shredded cheese, sour cream, and guacamole. All-in-all, it was totally great. However, eating out so much the last week has taken its toll and I know that I am holding water. I can feel it in my hands. So the next 2 days are going to be really "clean" days. And even with that, I am 2 pounds less than I was last Saturday.
I am debating whether go outside for a run/walk (actually a walk/run) The temp isn't bad and the wind is low. By the time I get my workout gear on, I will have decided. Updates later.

Daily stats:
Type: Walk/run
Route: Outide - varied
Time: 30
Average heart rate: 121
Max heart rate: 141
Calories burned: 351
Down 2 pounds from last Saturday
Got out on the road at 11:00 - way too late in the day
Temp: 24 degrees

I ended up going outside because when I do that I always pray the rosary while I'm running - and I promised a friend I would add her to my prayer list. It's also when I pray for my kids, grandkids, spouse, family etc.

I ended up only going down half the deadened. I had figured the ground would be solid, but I forgot to figure that the frozen ruts would be slippery underneath the snow. It was great to get out. I had to wear sunglasses because of the snow glare, but it feels so wonderful to be outside after a long winter of subzero temps.
