Back to the real world...

So tomorrow, I go back to work. I've been off since Tuesday and it's been GREAT!!! I have loved every minute of it.

I am still alive and kicking. Still on core, but sooooo tired of it. I'm ready to go back to points on Wednesday. I have not been perfect, I will admit. I've been to the gym ONCE this WW week thus far. Although on Saturday, I stained my DS swing set. It took me ALL DAY. Every time I took a break, I came inside and ate something (always core though!). Today, I shopped. :) Tried to avoid the sun at all costs, but that's kinda hard when the mall is an open air mall.

I will report a few NSVs I've had over the last few days. Today, I got into a pair of size 10 capris at New York & Company. :) SIZE TEN!!! I didn't buy them though. They were vanity sized, I know, but man that felt good! Friday night, we went out to Texas Roadhouse (this Friday will be MEXICAN b/c I miss it sooo!). I ordered a baked sweet potato plain, nothing on it with my steak and a house salad--no cheese and no dressing. I think the waiter thought I was nuts. Then in my 2nd purse that I had taken, I pulled out my spray butter, Splenda brown sugar blend, and my FF TJs salad dressing. DH was like "What else is in there?!?!" NSV#3--4th of July. A cook out at the neighbors--NO core food, NO WW friendly food. I ate and enjoyed myself with a few beverages, BUT I DID NOT CLEAN MY PLATE. I left a LOT of food on my plate. A LOT. I did not over indulge in desserts as I usually do. And I almost always clean my plate at these things b/c I don't want people to think I didn't like their cooking. GO ME!!! I was very proud of that.

I have made the decision to keep my blog here. I am still going to post on the boards at Roni's site, but my blog gets lost over there and I know I have a few "followers" here so I'm going to stay here. With google reader, I have loaded my usual blog reads into that and that keeps me updated whenever you all update your blogs. I was a little behind tonight (I still am), but I am going to bed. :) Also on Weight Watchen, I can read blogs all day, but then I don't comment. I would rather read the few (okay 20) that I have in google reader and those people know I am reading b/c I leave comments every time (or at least I try). I don't do that on Roni's site. :) I would never get anything done!! If you have moved over to Roni's site, I will still keep up with you, I promise. :0)

I LOVE that you stocked your purse with WW friendly condiments... I am SO going to do that next time I eat out! You are awesome! Maybe next time you should stuff your WW leader into one of your really large bags and drag her out during dessert, just for encouragement... I bet THAT would impress your hubby!

Double yeah for you! I especially liked the fact that you had all your goodies in your purse for the restaurant. Great idea! Like you, I'm staying here with my blog. I feel a little overwhelmed on Roni's site, but I still like to check in to read her blog.

Yay!!! I am so glad you are staying here! I read your blog EVERYDAY and I find it so much more meaningful on here with the smaller community.
I am a purse packer as well. I carry my own 1 pt english muffin to Red Robin and I even started bringing my own meals to sporting events!!! Whatever works, right!?!!

Haha....I was rolling when I read what your hubby said about your second purse!! I am EXACTUALLY the same way..When we go out to eat I bring the spray butter, Splenda, seasonings, dressings and crystal light!!! haha I bet people think I am cheap or something!! Im not just doing my " thing" on WW. :)

Funny story....I was taking the kids to Chuck E Cheese a couple weeks ago and while in the drive way I realize that I didn't have my Splenda, so my DD said I will go get you some mom...
I asked her you know where the lil packets are in the bag where I keep them right? Yes, the 7 yo assured me. Next I see her walking out with the 10 POUND Mega size bag of Splenda I buy to fill up my sugar jar with...LOL I was like what the hell? LMAO...we all had a good laugh with that one but I told her I don't think that is going to fit in mommys purse!! heheh...KIDS!!!!

Congratulations on all your NSVs! I love the idea of taking the condiments with you... I'll need to buy a bigger purse! I moved my blog back to weightwatchen but I keep my blogroll with the people I visited most on blogspot and still use my google reader. It's easier keeping up with 20 or so people that you are familiar with rather than 100 complete strangers, for sure.

That is GENIUS to take those condiments with you! THAT is dedication my friend. Good for you!

You are doing soooo well!
