It's Friday!! The weekend is almost here!!
So I jumped on the scale today. I know I have been doing really well all week so I was anxious to see if my hard work had paid off. Last weekend I did go a little overboard on the splurges but this weekend I think I have a new plan of action (it seems to change everyweek but maybe that's what my body needs...a little change every now and again.) I lost 3 lbs!!!! I couldn't believe it!! I am finally back down to my lowest weight ever. I made it down here in May but then got side tracked and gained about 4 lbs. Well now it's off again!!!! And I'm planning on keeping it off. I don't want to go back up to where I was last week. I'm really not even sure HOW I lost 3 lbs after all the junk I ate last weekend but like I said, this week, I have been SUPER strict and stuck to my plan full force. The past few weekends I have basically been eating my face off and not really watching what I eat, this weekend I'm going with a different approach. I'm going to enjoy a few splurges tomorrow and possibly tonight but Sunday is my back on track day. The last few weekends I have let my splurges take over Sunday but not this weekend. I'm getting back to my diet strict on Sunday. That gives me an extra day to be on my meal plan and an extra day to undo the damage that was done on Friday night and Saturday. I'm also going to TRY to ask myself before each splurge....the most feared question to all dieters...
"Do I really NEED this or am I just eating because I have the weekend off my mealplan???"
Here are my weekend challenges for this weekend:
Not too much. Scott and I are going to go out and price new appliances, countertop etc for our new house! (I don't even think I mentioned that Scott and I bought our FIRST home on Monday and we are absolutely in love with it!!! Move in date is July 20 so wish us luck!!)
I think we are planning on going for a coffee and then browsing the stores....although Scott did mention something this morning about going out to dinner tonight so I will let you know how that goes down.
We have a fundraiser to be at ALL day from 8:00-3:00 for Rally of Hope. We will be getting lots of exercise as there are TONS of obstacle courses and things like that. This year it is a Survivor theme and we are all in tribes and have to complete all these challenges. It should be fun actually and I am looking forward to it. As far as food goes, they are providing lunch so I'm thinking it will be a BBQ but it's anybody's guess. I'm just going to go and make the best choices I can.
I think we are having dinner and a movie night but if we do decide to go out to dinner tonight then tomorrow we'll be making dinner at home. Haven't decided what though...any suggestions? Then I think we are going to go see Knocked up...I've heard it is HILARIOUS!!!
What does everyone have planned for the weekend??? any Friday weighers have success today???
