|Casper and Piper|
So imagine my surprise when, at 6 a.m. this morning, I was awakened by the sound of loud, intense purring and the feeling of a furry little whiskered face shoving its way under my hand. Yep, Casper the kitty cat decided he wanted some lovin' and sleep-be-damned, he was going to get it. Well I couldn't resist ... could you? He flopped onto his side next to me *shock!* put his head on my stomach *double shock!* and laid there purring and waiting to be petted; occasionally tossing soft little nibbles at my triceps when I would nod off and stop petting him to remind me that he had an agenda.
Well it was sweet, fun, unexpected, and somewhat therapeutic but now I feel like I was robbed of that extra 30 minutes of sleep I would have acquired otherwise. *sigh* Oh the catch-22 of waking up early for a rare snuggle session with the cat or sleeping until the alarm went off.
7 glasses of water
1 cup of coffee w/creamer
1/2 cup white rice (dry)
1/2 cup leftover turkey/spinach mix
>>w/onions and mushrooms
1 cup beef strogonoff (food bible)
8 oz red wine
Daily Caloric Intake: 925
p.s. I don't usually drink red wine but the recipe called for it and I just couldn't resist ... I did the ol' Julia Childs pour and swig! lol
Walking: 5 miles (10,360 steps). I think I actually did a lot more than this. I was counting as I walked because I'm neurotic like that and did what I counted to be 5,000 steps but the pedometer only read 3,600 so I did another 1,400. Then I took a water break, did what I counted as another 5,000 but the pedometer said 3,800 so I did yet another 1,200 but the pedometer still put me less than 200 shy of 10,000 so I just walked until the show I was watching on TV ended. Oh well, more means less. lol (aka more walking means less weight on the scale come Monday).
