day 47: Canada, here we come! or maybe not...

Today's Food:
Breakfast: smoothie
Lunch: was supposed to be salad
Dinner: salad with chickpeas; red onion; cucumber; and mushrooms, some roasted acorn squash, a small dollop of mashed potatoes, orange glazed carrots, cole slaw, and 3 vegetable egg rolls.

Exercise: well, we did some walking

So as I mentioned yesterday; hubby went to Buffalo (about an hour and 15 minutes from Rochester depending) with me because I had a meeting for work and then we were planning a trip to Niagara Falls or maybe even IKEA in Hamilton, Ontario. Well we decided on not going to IKEA and didn't go to the falls (we live so close we've been there a bazillion times anyway) but we still had a decent time.

Lunch was supposed to be my standard: romaine with ETL salad dressing on it. We thought that I would be able to eat it in the car on the way to the meeting but when I was shaking up the salad in the GladWare container it... kind of... exploded... all over the car. Yeah. Well, really, the top just came off of it in a catastrophic kind of way. So no lunch for me today...

After the meeting we decided to head up to the Niagara Falls area. Hubby wanted to go to the casino for a little while so we did. I personally get bored on slot machines and don't have the guts to play a table game so I usually play about $20 worth in the slots and then just chill. I would have played video blackjack but couldn't find any machines that have it. No big deal though.

We decided to have dinner at the buffet at the casino. It was probably one of the nicest buffets that I've been to. Not that I've been to a lot of buffets; but this one was better than the ones in Las Vegas that we went to. ANYWAY... I started off with a big plate piled high with salad and drizzled with just enough italian salad dressing to give it some flavor. I ate the salad and it did a really good job of filling me up so it was easier to go back and just get little bits of other stuff that is less good for me. The worst thing was the veggie egg rolls since they're fried; and I should have stopped at one... but they were good and I'm willing to accept the consequences.

Tomorrow is a vacation day for me. I'm looking forward to having more time to exercise and all and also to be able to sleep in!
