So... I wasn't able to get these pictures up yesterday, but I DID take them yesterday.
As I was thinking about what I wanted to take a picture of, I started thinking of things I'm thankful for. And yes, I'm thankful for my young adult fiction. :) I like to be able to snuggle up with a blanket and just read something enjoyable--not something I have to focus all my energies on reading. And yes. I know three of them are by the same author, and no, these are not the only young adult fiction books I have read or own. They were just easily accessible. :)
Next up: The partially-full glass of Brick Oven Root Beer. First off, if you haven't had it, it is divine. So yes, I'm thankful for it, but that is not actually the reason it became one of my shots. As I mentioned a couple posts ago, I'm trying to reach a target weight and in order to do so I've been more careful about what I eat--particularly what are commonly called "empty calories." Unfortunately for me, soda falls in this category.
For anyone who is curious, 8 fluid ounces of Brick Oven Root Beer has 130 calories. Not a huge amount until you consider how easy it is to down way more than 8 oz and it does absolutely nothing to keep you full!
Yesterday I had done particularly well managing my food intake, so I decided to reward myself with a treat. Not wanting to overindulge, I only filled my glass up an inch or so. And then I laughed to myself because it looked like when people in the movies only put an inch of liquor in their cups.
And because I think I'm SO funny, I took a picture of it. :)
And that completes Day 1.
