YAY!!! DS went running to him when he pulled in the garage. We were sitting outside waiting for him. DS was soooo glad to see him. DH had the biggest smile on his face when he seen us. I'm so glad he's home. It's been a loooong week without him here! :)
Okay on to today...I have a lot to report...tales from the scales, NSVs, and my goals.
Tales from the scales....this mornings weight on the scale was 163.5. That's down 2# from yesterday mornings weight. So here's my question...2# of what?!?!?! This past Saturday, it said 170.5. Granted that was AFTER my surgery, but still. 7# in less than a week. I have never been an every day weigher, but I am starting to see the advantages of it. It can also work against you. For me, when I saw 161, it was like "oh wow, I can eat whatever I want and not count points." But then today I was like, oh wow, I wonder what it will say tomorrow after another day of good healthy eating. See, that's working for me there. :) I am also hoping it will stick with me going into the weekend. If I can keep it up, I know I can make my goal of 159 by my sister's wedding. YIPPEE!!!
NSV...I had to take my dress for sister's wedding in to get it altered. There was a huge bowl of candy sitting out on the table. Back in the day, I would have grabbed a piece or two and not counted it b/c it was so small it didn't matter. Not today. DS grabbed 2 pieces and I left there with NOTHING!!! This is HUGE b/c that stuff is my weakness. Milky Way, Three Musketeers, Snickers--yum! But I didn't even have a taste. WOO HOO!!!
Today's goals...I met them all except for the exercise but I already have in 2 days this week.
1) 3 days of exercise this week--none today, but I've already gotten in 2
2) Stay in my points and use no flex points until the weekend--check
3) fruits and veggies--minumum 5 per day--check
4) water--minimum 135 ounces per day--check--I quit counting at 144 ounces again
B--Froot Loops Cereal--3
L--Turkey Pot Pie (5), green beans (0)
D--Chicken Fries (3), Quick Fries (5), Broccoli & Chz (4)
Total of 24 out of 25. Not too shabby. :) I'm happy with that and I know I made the best decisions I could today. It's been really easy this week since DH has been out of town. I am curious what the scale will say tomorrow since I had the Chicken Fries and the French Fries for dinner. I like seeing how my body is reacting to certain foods. It's very interesting.
DS and I are leaving tomorrow morning for the trip to my mom's. I have a plan and as long as I can stick to it, I should be okay. OH...and I still have ALL of my flex points. I don't intend to use them all, but they are there in case I need them. I do intend to have a piece of cake at my sister's shower and some of my mom's chicken salad. But I also plan to take my own breakfast and I am going to take some of my english muffins so I can make myself a chicken salad sandwich on something healthy instead of white bread!!
Finally, I am going to get to bed early. DH is exhausted and is already passed out. Figures the night he gets home I get to bed early. Oh well. At least I made it one night this week!
Have a great Friday and a wonderful OP weekend! I'll be back on Sunday with a report on the shower. :)
