No gym, McDonalds, and THE DRESS (Jennifer)

There was no trip to the gym this morning.  Just as I thought all was back in order after my 3 year old's 6 day long stomach virus my 2 year old gets up and throws up today :(  I hate when they are sick.  It breaks my heart and I feel so helpless because I want to "fix" them asap.  I hate to see them unwell or sad, or just laying around on the couch when they dont feel well. 

I am actually glad not to go to the gym today.  I push myself and that is a good thing.  But...this gives me the opportunity (since I am guessing this bug will last a few days) to turn the exercise down and still eat my 1200 calories.  Then I weigh in on Thursday and see what it says.  Plus, yesterday I did my 3 mile run AND went to Zumba.  I do dread the next visit to the gym because taking a few days off is never pretty.  hehe.  

Last night after Zumba we went out to get a dress for a wedding we have to go to.  I was hungry so we stopped through McDonalds.  The girls already ate but I knew they would want some so I got a 10 piece nugget meal.  I ate 6 nuggets for a total of 276 calories and had about half the fries(about 190 calories.  And this fit into my 1200 calories for the day.  I felt in control yet treated.  It isnt the most healthy food but I didnt overdo it.  I dont eat fast food barely ever anymore. 

And as for the dress...I tried on dresses from size 10-16 and they all fit.  Interesting right?  The one I ended up getting was a size Medium!!!!  It is a stretchy material but that is not the point!  Medium?!?!   Hooray!!!  And I sent the picture to Teresa who said it looked great and so different from something I would normally wear. It took me a second to get that but she is right.  It is form fitting and like she explained, "it is colorful and not a skort!".  haha.  Thanks T, for opening my eyes!

Have a great day everyone.

Medium IS a nice thing! I'm excited to hit large! It will be awhile though. Nice on the McD's. The few times we end up eating there, I get the grilled chicken and turn it upside down and toss the bottom bun and eat it like an open faced sandwich. Messy but nice on the calories.
