Took a holiday

My weekend went pretty week. I took a little Holiday from blogging (I know, I was supposed to post the results of the Christmas Challenge yesterday, I promise it will be up there tonight!)I had a pretty great long weekend. I feel pretty good about my choices for the most part although I did stray from my plan a little bit, I tried to make fairly good choices.

Friday night we ended up meeting up with some friends and having a few drinks. I did go a little overboard and ended up polishing off a whole bottle of wine (Yellow Tail Merlot foe the Winos out there) and 1 Martini. I also had a piece of pizza and a few chips but we ended up going out dancing so hopefully I danced off those extra calories and then some. Had a great time though and isn't that what really matter??! (Ok.... I'm totally trying to justify eating the pizza, I felt guilty the next morning, I didn't need it but I had already had a few drinks by then and that pizza was looking mighty good!)

Saturday we hit up a local Christmas craft fair and I split a piece of fudge with Scott (which wasn't even good fudge! Don't you hate it when that happens?? I was looking forward to it and then it wasn't even good! It wasn't the usual "Fudge maker" that attends the local craft fairs but I took a chance and it just didn't pan out. Saturday night I did have a run in with some homemade nachos but that's what flex points are for right? They were soooo good though! Yum yum! Scott and I hit up Blockbuster on Saturday and have a movie night at home which was super nice.

Sunday I stayed pretty OP. We had my brother and his wife and my niece over for supper and Scott made chili and I made a loaf of homemade bread (I only had one piece with my supper! Yay me! I also had a few Mutigrain Tostitos to dip in my Chili, Boo me!) We had the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Parfaits for dessert and they were absolutely amazing!!!!! WOW! The recipe is in this month's WW Magazine and it is SOOOO good! Scott and I hit up a movie on Sunday night. We wanted to go see American Gangster but we missed it so we went to 30 Days of Night with Josh Hartnett. I stared at my lap for half of the movie. Damn Vampires give me nightmares everytime, but does this stop me from going....no! My own darn fault.

Monday was a perfectly OP day even though it was a Holiday and being home all day gave me the urge to eat everything in sight. But I didn't! I stuck to it and got back on track. Although it would have been super easy since Scott was at work all day and I ended up getting up early to make muffins. This morning I kind of feel like I'll see a bit of a gain this week but I'm going to kick butt at the gym tonight, tomorrow night and Thursday night and hopefully it'll be a good week. I'm going to jump on the scale tomorrow morning to see how I'm doing. That usually motivates me to get my butt in gear!

How was everyone's weekend?
I'll be posting tonight with the Christmas Challenge results.
Time for me to go catch up on everyone's blogs!!

Don't forget to get your recipes out for the Recipe Exchange!!!


  1. Hi Carolyn. You will probably post a loss this week since you mixed things up. That is what I did last week and it totally helped. Just kick butt at the gym and you'll do fine! Have a great week!

  2. Any time I'm drinking and feeling good I always always have pizza for sure! It was a good thing I stayed away from booze completely for a good 8-9 month stretch when I was really getting going with this. So you had your fun and me too and now it's time to be good for a while. I realized today that I'm at the exact same place I was after my week 1 results were posted...that's depressing! I really gotta shake it!

    I'm the BIGGEST sucker for homemade bread!

  3. well weekends are for splurging a little so long as you make it up during the week - and it sounds like you are going to.

    and the fudge stuff... i totally know what you are talking about!
