May 28th, 2015 Yes, I Said Dancing

May 28th, 2015 Yes, I Said Dancing

This super busy day started just after midnight when storms rolled through. Luckily it wasn't severe and I was able to get in bed not long after two am. It wasn't a good start to a day I knew would be super busy. A colleague filled in on my show until I arrived, about 40 minutes after it started this morning.

#TBT The 505 Tattoo. I braved the tattoo needle (I'm a baby when it comes to needles) in order to get this reminder of my starting weight permanently marked on my arm. I might get one more, possibly "I'm Choosing Change." But that's a ways away.

I quickly adjusted and shook off the rocky start. The day kept going, stopping to prepare lunch and then an afternoon nap at work helped me make it through the evening. No wonder I forgot to tweet my coffee earlier tonight! I took the picture and didn't tweet it until putting together this blog post!

I ordered out for dinner. Fajita crispy tacos! It's one of my favorites for a couple of reasons. Number one, it's incredibly delicious. Number two, the calorie count is totally adjustable depending on my budget. Low count? Have three. High count? Have two. Plenty of calories? Add cheese or a little more sour cream--or how about some guac? Not too many calories left in the bank? Leave off the cheese, have two--cut back the meat from approximately 2oz in each to 1.5oz and go easy on the sour cream. Also-- I adjust the amount of chips and salsa depending on where I find my calorie budget.

The fajita crispy tacos are not on the menu at any of the seven different restaurants I've tried (It should be!). But each one accommodates my request, perfectly. Who makes the best tasting fajita crispy tacos? Mexico Joe's in my hometown of Stillwater. Actually, I assemble it at the table--I make them, after ordering the individual ingredients. The restaurant closest to my apartment is the best value by far, charging me a low $6.52 for the entire order. It would be a challenge to cook it at home for that price!

I had fun with my workout tonight. When I allow myself to focus on the music--and I shut off the day's clutter--that's when the 30 minutes on that machine seems to fly by really fast. And when I get into the music--I don't even realize how crazy it gets with the lip syncing and dancing. Yes, I said dancing.

Speaking of dancing--we're less than 48 hours away from the father/daughter dance at the wedding reception! I've never looked forward to a dance like I'm looking forward to this one. I'm going to cry--there's no way around it.  

I'm off work tomorrow in preparation for the big day on Saturday. My full schedule Friday starts early. I hope your Thursday was incredible!
