Well my first weekend on the "revised" plan went pretty well and I must say I did pretty well at the wedding shower as well. I didn't even TOUCH the desserts...and there was a ton of them! My mother in law had ordered two dessert trays from Sobey's for the shower and they were filled with cheesecakes, eclairs, mousse...alll VERY decadent desserts. they look amazing but I stayed away. I didn't even touch the Chocolate Peanut butter Marshmallow squares and they are one of my favorites!! I stuck with the veggie tray and other than that, I had about a 1/2 cup of potato salad and 2 small pieces of cheese. So overall I did really well. I STUFFED myself with the veggies first so that I wouldn't be tempted by the desserts. for dessert, I stuck with the fruit tray. I was pretty happy with myself afterwards. I think the secret to my success was that before the shower I had went out and bought a Mars bar and left it at home. The whole time I was at the shower, I was thinking about my Mars bar and how great it was going to taste!!! When I finally got home and was able to indulge, it was heaven!! Everything I expected and more! All in all, I would say I did pretty good on my weekend challanges. I know I am still carrying around a few extra lbs though from last weekend's splurge (I think I honestly gained about 5 or 6 lbs!!) but I know it will come off it I keep it up. My next WI is on Saturday so I need to work my butt off to get back down there.
I also had a great NSV on Saturday. It was 35 C on Saturday and it was sooo hot here in New Brunswick, I think we were experiencing a heat wave. When I got back form my walk on Saturday morning, I couldn't stand the thought of putting on jeans and I didn't have any shorts or capris that fit me anymore so I went down to Suzy Shier in search of a cute jean skirt to wear to the shower. With my best friend in tow, we searched and searched and took about 7 or 8 different shorts/skirts into the changing room. Well I found the CUTEST little jean skirt in a size 9!!!! And I happened to notice that it was just a little loose around the waist so I asked my best friend Ryan to grab me a 7 just to be humorous....well I tried it on and IT FIT!!! I couldn't believe I had gotten myself into a 7!!!! 7!!!! I saved the tag and I am thinking about framing it :) Granted it was a skirt and they tend to fit a little bigger anyway and it has lots of stretch in it... but I don't care...it's a 7!!!!
That was my weekend in a nutshell....to be quite honest I must say I did have a few glasses of wine Saturday night when I got home but it was just what I needed after such a long day planning the shower, decorating and all that jazz. How was everyone's weekend??
