Yep. Today was the day. Had to get my physical exam, or as I like to think of it, the day I got to get a large pinkberry yogurt. I won’t bore you with the details, and hey, I didn’t take my camera in there with me. But once again, very proud of my blood pressure, 116/60, heart rate 65, and even my weight was down 1 1/2 pounds from last month’s visit. They measured me this time, and I am exactly 5 feet tall. I’ve lost a half an inch somewhere along the way.
Here’s my pinkberry. I was kind of mad at myself for getting the granola, because they put way too much on, and it wasn’t that good. I actually dumped most of it off, which almost resulted in me losing the yogurt too! Pinkberry is the best frozen yogurt I’ve had. And I think I can safely say I’ve tried most of the frozen yogurt shops in Northern California!
Before I left for the doctor, Noah and I got out for a nice long walk. That storm yesterday dumped 5 1/4 inches of rain on us! But this morning the sun was trying to peek through the clouds, and there was some mist in the trees, which we don’t have too often.
That was a good walk. Everything smelled so good after the rain. Here’s the little stream by the mailboxes. It was completely dried up just the day before.
After the yogurt and a visit to Henry’s (a store that’s like a cross between Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods) I headed home. Got in a walk with all three dogs, and then took Noah for a third walk because he was pretty wound up!
I ate light before going, because I knew I was going to have the yogurt, and I planned on having a pear salad for dinner. This salad was absolutely delicious–every bit as good as something you’d get in an upscale restaurant. Yes, I’d know that because I eat in so many upscale restaurants. Not. Anyway, it is very satisfying to use really good ingredients and have a really nice salad sometimes. That is something I wouldn’t let myself do when I was first starting to lose weight on Weight Watchers–too many points, I thought. This was a small salad, maybe 225-250 calories.
