Getting There...

So Monday ahas come and gone without one single splurge. I stayed within my meal plan all day even though I was tempted to just fall off the wagon for 'one more day'. I stuck with it. It's amazing how much confidence you can get from one great OP day!

I wanted to get in a walk last night but we ended up going to the bank to sign for our mortgage and then Scott had a ball game so I went and cheered him on. Tonight though I am going walking with a friend so I am hoping to get in at least 45 mins. Walking with an old friend makes the time FLY. I always find my walks way easier when I am walking with someone and chatting it up. Anyone else relate? After my walk tonight, Scott and I are going to try to get some more packing done, and we have to go pick out some paint and pick up a few other odds and ends for the house. I feel like there is still so much to do. But we'll get there. 3 more days and the house is officially ours! We get the keys on Friday! My plan for this week is to walk tonight and Thursday night for at least 45 mins (Wednesday night Scott has another ball game) I figure with the moving on Saturday, I'll get lots of exercise in on the weekend. We are going to start painting on Sunday so I'm sure that will be a great workout! Next week I should start settling into a routine and get back to walking at least 4 times a week.

As for my meal plan, I am planning on sticking to it STRICT for the rest of this week. Friday night and Saturday may be hard as we will be in the middle of moving. I know we will probably just grab something out but I'm promising myself that it's not going to be as bad as pizza and nachos! Thanks Kelly for the idea regarding the one "Cheat Day" I'll give it a try but I find it hard to stop at one!! I think you're right though, I need to come up with a more solid plan and then stick to it! I was NOT comfortable with the number I saw on the scale yesterday morning so I need to change it! I know it will come off fast and most of it was probably water weight from the massive amount of junk I ate on the weekend but still. I feel gross today and my pants are NOT as loose as they were last week! Grrrr

How is everyone else doing this week? Anyone still recovering from the weekend?


  1. keep up the good job, you'll get there.

  2. Keep up the good work this week, and don't sweat the weekend, just worry about getting settled and getting back On Plan as soon as you can!

  3. awesome job staying on the OP wagon on Monday! Woohoo! Don't stress about the weekend yet - just get through this Tuesday....you can have pizza and be OP - you just can't have A WHOLE pizza! HAHAHA

  4. good plan for the walking! i love to walk with my sister, its over before you know it and we motivate each other to go further. i went to the grocery store last night, which is a few blocks from my house. when i got home i realized i forgot something so i walked back! it was good because once i got there, i had to carry back groceries :)

    i'm having an okay week, it seems like PMS is causing me to have the munchies, oh well!

  5. You are so right about feeling so much more confident after 1 day op. I am just getting back on and feel great today. yay us.
