Just an update on the pro's and con's of a Friday night
* Made Pizza and counted every single calorie
* Had only 2 slices of pizza (old me would have scoffed the lot)
* Had 4 beers
Ok soooo this week wasn't the food issue like last weeks sausages as I controlled what I ate by counting the calories beforehand and sticking to the amount I wanted to eat. The bad thing was that my good friend who happens to be my neihbour sent a message saying "come on over for a couple of drinks"
Friday has always been a night that hubby and I get together with our friends and neihbours as some of you know it is called Firepit Friday. Our kids are old enough to do whatever they want. Oldest daughter lives in Vietnam and middle daughter lives next door but one to us but seems to be constantly living in our fridge and youngest (14) watches some tv, chats with her friends back in the UK and hangs out.
So Friday is a day for chilling out with friends and neihbours, discussing the week and having a good old laugh adult style. So after getting the pizzas ready and hanging out with the kids for a bit, we slipped out to hang out with kids our age
The bad thing is that I had 4 beers and they are 330ml size ones (so small ones)
The good thing is that I said no to anymore and was actually tucked up in bed by 11.30pm while everyone else continued until the wee hours of the morning. When I came back I didn't go to the fridge to get left over pizza (this is probably a record for me as the munchies hit me after beer) I came in drank a glass of water, brushed the choppers and went to bed
Total calorie intake for the day was 1646 so not bad really compared to last Friday
No drinks next Friday as Hubby is competing in rink bandy Finnish Championships but Saturday is my birthday so can't promise anything.
Oh and the picture is the place where "we adults" hang out on Friday nights. This is on our garden made with reclaimed and used wood from an old building we pulled down last summer. It is called Revontulilaavu this translated means "Aurora Firepit" It is called that as we usually sit there and watch the Northern lights from there. Joint project with the neihbours and cost about 300 euros to make as almost everything was salvaged from the old building or the scrap man. This place is my sanctuary and even without Firepit Friday I spend time sitting here with a small fire and chillaxing
Soooo all in all this Friday wasn't a disaster, some things still have to be learned but I am on level footing. Beans on toast for brekkie and am gonna do the couch 2 25km week 2 run 3 in a short while.
Happy Saturday all
