Today I went over my points by 10: roughly 500 calories. I'm out of practice. We did have a great dinner: crabcakes from Eating Well's Healthy in a Hurry cookbook and a salad. We also made a wholegrain pilaf but I wasn't hungry enough to eat it. It was a beautiful evening, so we had dinner outdoors.
I did get out for a walk at lunchtime. I was planning to go to the gym tonight but it was too nice outside to work out in the dingy JCC, so I decided that I'd use my muscles in the real world instead. I did some heavy-duty weeding in my garden tonight. Some previous owner had planted English ivy, and it was crawling up the house and shoving itself under the siding. I ripped out a large trash can's worth and there is still a lot there. I am sure this is going to be a multi-week project. Tip: Don't ever plant this stuff, it's a terrible pest. As my husband said, "Just imagine the mess that homeowners would be in if someone had named a group of fancy Eastern schools the Kudzu League."
