A New Day, A New Me...

Well, this is my second post for today, and I had said that I was going to go easy on the salt today. So, my intentions were good and the day ended up good, but I was at the beauty shop this morning - ALL MORNING! - and here is what happened...

No breakfast before going to the shop, no coffee since 3:20 or so this morning. Oh, and lots of water. So by the time I got out of the beauty shop around 1:00, I guess (my appointment was at 9:00), I was starving!!! Don't get me wrong though, they cut my hair and my daughter's, and colored mine, and I am so, SO happy with it! I ended up having a diet Coke while at the shop, not all of it, my daughter drank most of it for me, but sodium there. No biggie, right? When I went to pick up my son at Michelle's house, Noelle and I were both ravenous. Michelle had food for Noelle for lunch, and offered me some. I ate a delicious Tyson chicken tender - it was sooooo good, it could have come from O'Charley's as far as I was concerned! Then I had some creamy chicken enchiladas - little different from traditional, as you use salsa instead of enchilada sauce, and she used Velveeta instead of cheddar, and it was DELISH! I had two of those. I also had a really, really tiny bit of coke - my son finished that! After coming home I had some raw carrots, much better and closer to my plan for the day! I also had a cup of coffee and some more water. Could not get enough water today, it was so good. For supper I had a baked tilapia filet with no-salt lemon pepper seasoning, Yummy! For a side I had steamed veggies - broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. I did add a postage stamp size bit of regular salted butter. It was all so good. Now it is nearly 9:00 pm and I just had a cup of Suisse Mocha from GFIC, and it was the perfect end to the day. All in all, I think it was a good day. I told Michelle as I ate the chicken tender at 1:00 that that was my breakfast, and then the enchiladas were my lunch - I just ate them together. It worked!

I am posting a pic of my new hairdo, I feel like a new woman with it. Also, check out Michelle's Walking My Way to Health blog to see her new do, very nice! We had two good days of "pampering" for us!
