So the long-awaited (ok more me than you…) results to my vacation weight gain….. 0.5 – YAHOO! I only gained half lb. I was so happy when I saw the numbers on the scale. Does that mean I’m going to go crazy & do that more often – oh hell no! I didn’t just sit back to see what my loss would be. Since Monday when I stepped on the scale I tracked every BLT – (Bite Lick Taste for those that don’t know WW lingo). I fit in power walks during my short lunch time so at least I’d get some sort of activity in before heading home. Then kept busy all night so I keep out of the fridge – and what a pay off – I got stuff done & off my list as a bonus!
With the slight gain – I feel empowered. (That sounds odd!) I think the light bulb FINALLY went off in my head & said “DUH! Do this all the time!” Like today – the boss comes up to me & invites me to lunch with the other girls – Mexican. Oh Lordy – I LOVE Mexican – but I wasn’t prepared with NI, etc. We all know Mexican can creep up on you. I couldn’t see myself ordering something I “thought” was good & get back to work to track it & I’d lose all my weeklies in one meal when I have friends coming over on Saturday & Easter on Sunday that I need them for. Plus – come on, it’s Thursday aka Pizza Night with Rich. I look forward to it all week. So off they went & I pulled my salad out of the fridge, put my 2 Tbls of Walden Farms Bleu Cheese dressing & a few dashes of Frank’s Hot Sauce for a Buffalo kick. Paired that with a WW Smoked String Cheese & I’m happy.
Upon their return I headed out for my lunch time power walk. Thankfully the weather held out for me. I heard it wasn’t suppose to be nice, but the sun is shining! That’s all I care about!
Afterwards I hate the other half of my lunch. I find breaking my lunch into two parts – eating it a couple of hours after helps keep me full until dinner – sometimes. So I heated up the Lean Cuisines Thai Style Chicken Rolls – (FAVE) and an apple. I realized I should take a picture only after I ate two of the chicken rolls – 😛
It kept me full until Rich arrived at home with Pizza in hand! It worked out great because it was a busy night – getting Natie ready for his bath when he’s exhausted is a workout in itself! Once he got to bed I was able to start laundry & all the other things left on my never-ending list – but that’s the life of a Mom, right? I wouldn’t change it for the world! 🙂
