Scott keeps telling me to appreciate Mondays because they make up 1/7 of your entire life. It's true...but who wants to hear that at 7:00am Monday morning on your way to work?!?
We had a super busy weekend. Friday night we went out to dinner (East Side Mario's....had the chicken wrap...soooo yummy) and then we went to a Hockey game. I brought a Toffee Cadbury Thin with me for a snack so I wouldn't feel left out when everyone else was chowing down on beer and nachos. Worked out great!! It satisfied my sweet craving and it was only 2 pts!
Saturday we had a wedding to go to. They had a Chinese buffet for the meal and it was great. I tried to stick with the veggies and not go overboard but my stomach felt so heavy about an hour later. I remembered why I never eat Chinese food. Yuck. It always makes me feel like a balloon.
Sunday Scott and I went to Costco with my brother, sister in law and their 20 month old little girl. We had a great time and spent about 3 hours walking around the store and then the mall so at least I got in some activity. Last night is where it all went wrong. We got home from Costco (about 1.5 hours away from home) and decided to fore go the preplanned tacos and have homemade pizza instead. Needless to say, I really should NOT have made this awful choice but I did. I have to live with it. I'm moving on. (Although I'm still kicking my butt over it) I should remember how awful I feel next time I think of making pizza instead of a nice point friendly WW meal.
Speaking of kicking butt..... I got my butt kicked last night. Before we left for Costco I put a book on the stairs that needed to go downstairs. Of course I was just too lazy and rushed to take it all the way down before we left. Last night I was going downstairs to put some clothes in the dryer and instead of turning on the light, I just ran down...well tried to. I didn't make it past the first stair before I stepped on the book and it sent me flying! I can't believe how hard I landed, both arms scrapping that metal piece at the top of the stairs. Then I slid down the stairs hitting my back and head on each step. Both arms are swollen and really bruised and I have a super sore back. I put ice on all the really swollen and bruised parts last night but sleeping was awful. Everything hurts. I'm SO lucky I didn't break anything though. I'm just sore and achy. I am going to try the elliptical tonight since I really didn't hurt my legs. The only thing is that I packed a little tank top for the gym so my bruises will be on display. Grrr. Sometimes my clumsiness amazes even me.
So on to the Christmas Challenge...We have 4 new Challengers to add to the list today! I've added them to my side bar so check out their sites and drop a little encouragement their way. :)
Teena -14 lbs
Welcome to the Challenge girls!
For all of the Challengers, don't forget to e-mail me your WI results this week. I will be posting the results of Week 1 on Mon, October 1st so get them in before then. I would also encourage everyone to take a before picture. Before and after pictures are the best motivation and you'd be surprised at what 5, 10 or 15 lbs can do! Who doesn't love seeing Before and After pics?? If you've already posted some great Before and After pics on your own blog, leave a link to the post in your comment. I will see if I can find some before pics tonight and hopefully post my own before and after tomorrow :)
That's it for me today. Happy Monday ladies!
