My wife and I each have our night out once a week. My night is Monday and I go play poker. However, before poker, I take a nap. It’s great, as soon as I’m finished with work I tell the wife NITE! and rush upstairs for a nice long nap. However, yesterday, after I woke up, I looked at my fitbit and realized it’s just too much downtime. I was slightly over my target calorie count last night not because I necessarily overate, but because I didn’t have standard activity to provide me additional calories against my goal targets.
I was proud of myself. To play poker you must patronage the bar. Normally, I order food for the first game and a sundae for the second game (this week I need to try and find the least calorie/fat offensive option on the menu to eat going forward). Before the second game, I ordered the sundae, but asked only for the ice cream scoop. The rest of the ingredients (brownie, whip cream, and chocolate sauce) were put into a to-go box. I figured, I didn’t need them, but perhaps the kids would want dessert tomorrow.
In all, it was a good day, if I miss my goals, I need to at least figure out why and make adjustments. 🙂
