Last night's WI

DOWN 2.6! WOO HOO!!

I still think I had a little water retention last night, but that made me happy!

I think going back to the meetings is really going to help me. I have some focus right now, which I have been lacking the last few weeks. I have a plan for the week and I strongly hope to stick to it. Even last night, when DS and I got home from running around after my WI, I sat down and thought about this coming week and what challenges it presents.

The biggest challenge is my sister's bridal shower that I am throwing on Saturday. There will be cake, mints, spinach dip, and these little deli spirals I got at Sam's. I am going to either send my little sister to Subway for me before the shower OR just allow myself a small sampling of each thing. There will be a fruit and a veggie tray, but there will also be fruit and veggie dip. I am really going to try to save my flex points for the weekend and really try not to use them all. This should not be a problem since I usually have no problem sticking to my points during the week. I am going to the gym today and I hope to go tomorrow too and maybe even Thursday. With this heat, I know I won't be able to work out when I am at my mom's b/c it's just too darn hot!! And there is not a gym there either so all workouts have to be outdoors unless I do a video and that won't happen b/c there is ZERO privacy there and I can't stand to do a video with an audience!

So...my goals for this week. I am putting them here so I can keep accountable. You all hold me to them, okay?

1) 3 days of exercise this week--either 3 treadmill workouts doing C25K or elliptical workouts.
2) Stay in my points and use no flex points until the weekend
3) fruits and veggies--minumum 5 per day
4) water--minimum 135 ounces per day (with the exception of next Monday, which is WI day)

I think that's it. That sounds easy enough, right?? Let's just hope I can stick to it!

I'll be back later to let you know if I have met my goals or not. :) Have a great day!!

WooHoo...Congrats on the loss, that is awesome!
I think it is a great idea to write down your goals, I will be checking in to see that you follow them! I know you can stick to these though. The bridal shower could be tough, but it sounds like you know what you are getting into and I like the idea of having a subway before hand. I love shower and party food though so that would be hard for me to do. Either plan I think you will do just fine!!

That is an AMAZING loss!!! Way to go! You can survive the shower, just eat AHEAD of time and it won't be as tough! Good luck friend!

I think I found some of what you lost LOL.

Are you making the dips? What about making them with FF plain yogurt or FF sour cream and RD/LF mayo?

The auction was neat but nothing like I've ever experienced. In looking back at some pictures I really do stand out like a sore thumb. Oh well I'm not changing and everyone is super sweet and never means any harm. A lot of the people in that area have never even been to a big city. I always tell the husband that out here we grow up thinking that no one really lives in the country they just vacation there LOL. Together we're a little bit country and a little bit rock n roll :).
Oh and I can totally see how auctions can be addicting.

I wouldn't worry too much about the shower... definitely have a plan (I'd say eat ahead!) but when we had my sister's shower, I barely had time to sit let a lone EAT!! Just trying to keep things moving, games, etc... & I had a lot of help! You'll be fine, just go with a plan & stick to your guns!
