Day 144 - Making Connections

Thursday, April 23, 2015

I attended a luncheon today hosted by an Interior Designer based in Lakeport, about a half hour west of my office. He uses it as an opportunity to get various business people connected to help each other, as well as his own business. He's an energetic guy who is very involved with the community, belonging to both of our Chambers of Commerce as well as other organizations, and has been very active in getting people involved in helping our community in a variety of ways.

It was a really fun lunch, and frankly, I didn't want to leave. I finally left at 2:20pm after over 2 hours of socializing with the other attendees (7 of us in total).

It was tough trying to track all my food at lunch - but I think I got everything entered. The food was great, and I did my best to make good choices. It was a special treat haviIng a Ferrero-Rocher for dessert (along with some delicious fresh strawberries).

I had my weigh in tonight. My weight didn't change, but my body fat dropped from 19% to 18.9% and my fluid % was up to 58% from 53% last week. I feel like my body is right where it needs to be, at this point in the journey, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I feel great, and even after a day like today, I'm still on the right path!

Make good choices the rest of the week, dear friends! Stay focused on your goals, and be glad for whatever progress you make, each and every day!

    Aren't those kind of luncheons nice. Sounds like it was great and congrats making the good food choices when you could have really blown it. Good job. I will have the same challenges this weekend with the convention, as hospitality rooms aren't known for their healthy food. I will take my protein bars with me to make sure I get my protein. Keep up the good work!
