Ok, so not having a scale in my dorm-room was probably a bad idea to start the year off with. As much as I fear seeing the number that pops up on that tiny, menacing screen... I'm actually quite curious to see if my efforts of this past week have paid off or not. Not having a starting point to work off of was a fail, fail idea on my part.
So next week on the 15th when I go home for weekend, I'm retrieving my scale and bringing it back to the dorm room. Where I will hide it from my potentially-skeptical room-mate when she gets back in late January I still don't know, but I'll face that obstacle when I get there.
On that note, I am learning how to navigate the dining hall (aka 'the great buffet of the most unhealthy foods and portions you could ever dream of') with greater ease. When I'm by myself it gets even easier since I can typically stick with things like cheerios, salads, whatever soup is offered that night (but only if it's broth-based, not cream-based), and a green apple with a smidgen of peanut butter for dessert. When I'm with other people, though, there's the pressure to stuff my face like everyone else. I've been really good about that so far, though. So far. When EVERYONE comes back for the spring semester I'm going to have to work even harder.
Went out mall-browsing this afternoon with my honey-sama; all that walking is going to have to count as my exercise for the day. We ate at P.F. Chang's, and it was actually pretty easy to eat well there calorie-wise. I stuck with steamed vegetable dumplings and a cup of brown rice as my entree. Yay me! Also, I didn't succumb to any of the dreaded mall temptations like Cinnabon and Auntie Anne's.
On a slightly unrelated note, I also got my hair cut finally. (:D) All in all, it was a productive day.
