So I am actually getting used to the new meal plan...even liking it. I find myself looking forward to my chicken and veggies...and yes....even the cottage cheese! I used to HATE cottage cheese and then I figured it out, I was just buying the wrong brand! What a difference, it's like night and day (for all you cottage cheese eaters, and I'm SURE there aren't many, Scotsburn 1% is really good, rich and creamy!) I have a few recipes to make this weekend in order to prepare for the next 2 weeks phase of the plan. I'll be anxious for Monday as it is my weigh in day AND I get to try out some new meals for lunch and dinner!
This weekend we are having my mother in law over for dinner and hubby is planning this big elaborate dinner (of which I can't partake in) including pumpkin pie dessert! But I'll just have to get by with my chicken and veggies, I know I can do it though and it won't be so bad. It will be a challenge of course but I know I can do it. Saturday night Scott and I are also going out for a few drinks at a friend's place but my plan is to stick with Cranberry crystal light and tangerine vodka (VERY yummy) and I'm just going to stay away from the food, simple as that. Actually it's not that simple, as we all know. After a few drinks, those chips and dips start to look better and better. I am going to muster up all my will power though and give it my best. The trick is the next day, that feeling you get when you wake up...like I would give my right arm AND leg for pizza and chocolate bars. You all know the feeling.
My weekend food challenges:
1. Hubby and I are hitting a movie tonight.....first movie with NO movie treat, surrounded by the smell of popcorn and chocolate.
2. Saturday night drinks at friend's house.....no snacking after a few drinks (If I HAVE to snack, hit the veggie tray only)
3. Sunday morning staying on track, no pizza or chocolate. If I can make the right choice at breakfast, the rest of the day should fall in place
4. Sunday night Mother's Day dinner, watching everyone else indulge and holding back
5. Sunday night Mother's Day dinner DESSERT (I LOVE pumpkin pie)
I'm challenging myself, I know I can do it! It's my last day of the first 2 week phase and I want to go out with a bang. PLUS it is the day before my weigh in so I have to be good! Everyday though it feels like my willpower has doubled so if I think I can do it, I can do it! I can do it right? (I think this is that part where the support from your comments gets me through the weekend)
How is everyone else doing this week?
I didn't get out for my walk last night like I had hope. We viewed a house after work and by the time we got home I had a massive headache and was starving beyond belief. Tomorrow morning though I am planning on going for at least 1 hour power walk as long as it isn't raining!
