I'm leaving on a jet plane!

I finally lost another pound!  I was so happy when I weighed myself Friday morning and the scale read 145!  This is a new low for me!  The only bummer is that it reinforced what I already knew, I have to keep my calorie differential around -1000 to lose weight; I guess I'll be eating more salad for a while.  I really can't wait to reach my goal weight and finally just work on maintaining; it seems so easy to stay under 2000 calories now that I'm aware of what's in everything.

I really don't understand why some mornings it's totally easy for me to get dressed and others it's a complete disaster.  Luckily, Friday was an easy day.  Who knows why but I very easily picked this out: pink cardigan from Old Navy with a white cami from NY & Co and a chunky beaded necklace from Anthropologie (am I the only one who starts singing that Moto Moto song from Madagascar 2 whenever I hear the word chunky), navy dress pants from The Limited and wine colored booties from Naturalizer.
I had been checking airline pricing for our trip earlier in the week and found a non-stop Delta flight from PHL-SLC for $369.  During our dinner date on Thursday night I asked Chris how that pricing compared to what he usually pays.  He was pretty shocked and said we should book right away because he hasn't seen pricing that low in a long time.  So before I went downstairs to make breakfast Joe & I booked our flight, it's official we're going to Utah!
I was in a pretty good mood by this point, I lost weight, my wardrobe choices were easy, we were definitely going on vacation and it was Friday!  I made myself a bowl of oatmeal with my new fail safe recipe (= 321 calories) and headed off to work.
My morning flew by, mostly because my meeting was off site and lasted almost 2 hours!  It was pretty interesting so I didn't realize how long we were in there.  By the time I got back to the office it was almost lunch.  I ate at my desk again = 311 calories.  I might as well get used to it too because when phase 2 of construction starts next week we'll all be eating at our desks since both kitchens are being worked on.
After work I was off to the gym for group power.  I didn't realize until I was in the locker room changing that I could have worn my new garmin watch to calculate my calories!  I was so bummed I had left it at home.  The class went alright, I was just ready to be done for the week so I didn't try as hard as usual. 
Joe went to see Pee Wee's Big Adventure at the movie theater's retro night with a few friends so I was on my own for dinner.  I decided to use my Chido Burrito coupon/gift card.  Unfortunately they wouldn't break it and I would have to buy $20 worth of food.  So I gave Nicole a quick call and let her know I was bringing her & Jack some dinner.  I had my usual burrito plus chips & cheese = 1084 calories.
We spent the rest of the evening watching tv while stuffing ourselves full of Mexican food.  It was delicious!

How did I do on my March goals?
1. Read 2 books:  knocked out a few more pages before class
2. Burn at least 750 calories a day for at least 25 days: 2256 burned - 1716 eaten = 540 burned, 18 days total
3. 1200 fitness minutes: 60 minutes today, 1223 total for month (goal complete)
4. Eat 1 fruit or veggie with each meal for at least 20 days:  banana w/breakfast, apple w/lunch & lettuce, tomato & corn for dinner, 17 days total
5. 15 spend free days - plane tickets are expensive...7 days total...
