I have had a great week so far on plan! I have been playing by the rule book and haven't stepped out of the zone once. It feels so good to be back in the zone, I swear someone could offer me a huge chunk of chocolate cake and ice cream and I don't even think I'd flinch (ok maybe this is a little extreme, I might need to at least smell it to get a small chocolate fix) But I just feel like for the past few says, I am back in business. After my long weekend splurge, I could feel the lbs come back on, my clothes weren't as loose and I just FELT awful, and bloaty and big. I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about. We've all been there. Last weekend I did pretty good on my weekend challenges. I did have my chocolate bar and maybe one too many glasses of wine but all in all I think I did ok. This weekend is yet another test. Why are the weekends SOO hard?? It feels like a little mini vacation where calories don't count and all foods are fat free. But unfortunately that is not the case....weekends are just regular old days where a pound of chocolate will still make you gain weight and feel terribly guilty.
This weekend we are heading camping with a ton of friends, Scott's best friend is home from Afghanistan for a few weeks so we are all heading out to brave the wilderness...well not really, we are going to a nice camp right on the water which is actually quite nice and luxurious! But still, I like to think we'll be roughing it. Camping, is always an activity which involves lots of eating and drinking. Sounds like fun, but it isn't too easy on the waistline. Especially when the roasted marshmallows are broken out and someone just happens to have brought all the requirements for SMORES! I am going to try to pre-plan...bring my chicken for the BBQ, make a big salad to munch on all day but for some reason, the smell of BBQ hot dogs drives me to madness!! I LOVE BBQ'd hotdogs.....they are my favorite!! So now I am trying to make a judgment call...should I just stay strong and stick with my chicken and veggies while everyone else is eating chips, BBQ hotdogs and hamburgers, corn on the cob, seafood etc or should I go out and buy the Schneider's 1 point hotdogs...just in case?!?!?! I am worried that I will get there and throw caution to the wind and start chowing down on those bog 5 points hotdogs and go nuts. I really DO want to stick with my chicken and veggies...I know I will feel better if I do. The next day my stomach will thank me, I'm sure of it. What does everyone think would be my best plan of action!?!?
My next WI is on Saturday before we leave for the camping trip so maybe that will direct me and give me more motivation to stay on track...unless I see a gain...then I fear for my poor stomach!! Help! :)
