This week has been going really well and I am really looking forward to WI this Saturday...that's right ladies, I said I was looking FORWARD to weigh in! Except I did have a little itsy bitsy slip last night. It could have been A LOT worse and I managed to control it but I really didn't know how bad it was until this morning......here goes
Last night a bunch of friends and Scott and I went out to a local Sports bar to watch the Sens-Ducks Game (Boo Ducks). We got there around 8:30 or so and I decided to have a drink. Just one drink...to fit in with the sport's bar atmosphere. I mean who actually goes to a Sport's bar and orders an ice water?? Not me, that's who. So I couldn't really think of anything to order and asked the waitress what types of coolers they had. Right there I should have asked if they had any Light varieties of these coolers but as soon as she said Orange Bacardi Breezer, I was sold. I've had a long and intense love affair with these coolers that ended abruptly last summer when I may have had one too many....ok it was more like 5 too many of these yummy coolers. Last night I was FINALLY ready to give them another chance. So I ordered one and the first sip made me fall back in love. For those of you who have tried these coolers, you may be able to sympathize with how I was feeling. One wasn't enough.....two wasn't enough......three.....well I MADE myself stop at 3 (but only because I had to get up at 6:00am for work).
After three Bacardi Breezers, I started with the cravings. Of course everyone at our table was ordering wings and appetizers and I was constantly surrounded by the smell of yummy greasy pub food. I even asked for a menu at one point and even considered throwing in the towel for the night in favour of a large basket of Mozza Sticks and Ranch Dressing, my absolute favorite of the yummy greasy pub food family. But in the end, I made the right decision....I didn't even have one bite! Nothing, nada, zip! Just my coolers (which I found out today equaled to about 435 CALORIES!!!) I drank away almost 450 calories! Yikes! But at least I didn't touch the food..I have to congradulate myself for small victories! Take em where you can get em I guess. Tonight I am going out to dinner with Sarah but luckily she chose Vito's and it has a menu specifically designed for my meal plan so I am pretty safe there, and I will be sticking to the good 'ol ice water tonight for sure. After I am home, Scott and I are planning for an after dinner walk so I am looking forward to that. Don't I have the best husband? His comments are so great...he is the most supportive husband in the world....I would NEVER have lost 70 lbs without him!!
Thank you SO much for all your advice about the camping trip...I think everyone had the same idea and I'm going to go out and buy the 1 point hot dogs...does anyone know of any 1 point hot dog buns??? Weight Watcher maybe?? I am also going to marinade some chicken and bring a big salad! (Thanks Kate!...any marinade suggestions anyone?? I did buy honey mustard today which I will try for tomorrow)
