Oh this is going to feel good......making it official!
Randi, put me down for losing 2 LBS for Week #4 of the Christmas Challenge!!!!
My digital scale was on the fritz this morning (aka batteries dead) so I had to resort to old faithful. Which wasn't a big problem anyway because I weighed myself on both the digital scale and old faithful last Friday (to make sure that my big 3 pound loss was actually accurate and not just a figment of my imagination!) SO I jumped on the scale this morning and I was down a solid 2 lbs. I even made Scott come in to see it since I was so excited! I think cutting out all those empty points and eating a better breakfast, along with getting to the gym at least 3 times a week is starting to pay off. This loss puts me at 50% of my Christmas Challenge goal so I'm even thinking of upping my goal. I'm going to wait and see how next week's WI goes though before I make any final decisions. What do you girls think?
The Sheppard's pie turned out well last night, although I didn't get to actually try any since it wasn't done until about 8:00 and I had long since had my supper but when my Mom and her Bf arrived from Ontario they sat down to 2 big helpings and had nothing but rave reviews. I'm definitely going to try out a nice big piece for supper tonight. I'm thinking about freezing a few pieces for lunches/weekday suppers too. Do you think it would freeze well? I'm not sure about the potatoes??
I also ended up making yet another batch of Anne's Banana Bran Chocolate Chip muffins and they were a HUGE hit with the family. They finished up my batch from Wednesday night AND the batch from last night only has 1 or 2 left. I'm proud to say that while Scott scarfed down 3 muffins last night, my Mom had 3 and her Bf had maybe 4 or more, I had ZERO! None for me! I actually picked one up and was about to take a nice big bite but hesitated for a second and put it back in the container. Nice NSV eh?
So this weekends plan is to stay within my 35 flex points which really shouldn't be a problem. No homemade pizza tonight for supper so that will save up quite a few. I really have no excuse this weekend to overindulge so I have a feeling it's going to be a good one!
Don't forget to e-mail Randi your WI results for Week #4 of the Christmas Challenge!!
Have a great weekend!!
