I haven't really fallen off the face of the earth, I promise. I have just been trying to catch up with work and life in general. Because we were in Toronto for most of the week last week, I came back to a pile of work on my desk. I have one of those jobs where if I don't do the work, it just piles up on my desk, no one else will do it for me. But I can't complain, I do really enjoy my job. I have been back on my meal plan since Monday but I did have a slip up on Monday night....grrr.

I came home from work with a massive headache so I took a few Advil and laid down for a power nap. I then woke up at 6:00 and headed to the fridge for supper, since hubby was out and I had just gotten back from Toronto, I didn't have that sense of accountability ingrained in my brain yet. I was still in "away from home, I can eat whatever I want" mode. Isn't it weird that when we are away form home we lose all accountability...or at least I do. Does anyone else do the same?? I knew I was supposed to have my 4 ounces of chicken and 2.5 cups of veggies but I looked at the fridge, contemplated the chicken and then threw caution to the wind. I decided to have a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese (still trying to get my protein in) and then I went to reach for the salad and for some odd odd odd reason, turned around opened the cupboard and pulled out the Mini Wheats!!! These were a major weakness of mine before I started WW. I would eat a whole box in one sitting....and I almost did on Monday! I ate those mini wheats like they were going out of style. Handful after handful (I don't like milk on them, just straight form the box!) I ate at least 1/2 the box. Granted the boxes are pretty small BUT STILL!!! I'm sure it was about 50x the amount of calories that would have been in my salad. Another thing, after I have a headache and take Advil to get rid of it, for some weird reason, I always crave carby food...Is it just me?? I always want a bagel or toast or something. Maybe it's just a comfort thing

But I decided Tuesday that enough was enough, I had to start holding myself accountable again. I have been doing great since then and am hoping for some sort of a loss tomorrow morning, even a small one would be great at this point.

I am slowly catching up on all of your blogs...I feel like I have missed a year's worth! Hope everyone is getting ready for the big Canada Day Weekend (for you fellow Canadians anyway)!! Take care!


  1. I'm the same as you - the second I'm away from my routine it is a shit show! I loose all ability to make the proper decisions about food.

    It is funny you mention the headache - I have a doozer right now and am fighting the munchies SO BAD!!!!!! I'm just on my way to take some advil now!!!!

  2. i know about struggles. esp. lately but life is full of second chances... that's one of the great things!

    my thoughts are with you and your families for your loss...

  3. Oh, advil liquigels are my best friend when I have a headache. I also crave sugar when I've got a headache - but I would have ended up eating something MUCH more offensive than mini-wheats.:-) You would have found my face in a chocolate bar FOR SURE.
    You're just getting back into the swing of things, and you're doing a great job. Keep trekking along.

    Happy Canada Day!

  4. It's always a struggle for me when I'm away from my routine to keep with things too, I think we all have that problem. I just stick to it the best I can and call it good enough when I'm away from home (which I'm trying this weekend!).

    Happy Canada Day to you. Here in the states we are preparing for Independence Day Weekend, which is actually kinda screwed up this year, since the 4th is dead in the middle of the week, go figure!
