I couldn't even believe it when I jumped on the scale this morning....I woke up absolutely dreading the idea of getting on the scale this morning but I knew I had to face the music. I have had less than a steller week and I need to own up to it. Actually my week wasn't TOO bad (with the exception of my Halloween treats) but last weekend was pretty rough. I probably used at least 70 bonus points or MORE. Damn Pizza Shack. Damn Halloween party. Who brought those homemade peanut butter balls anyway??
Anyway so I got up and jumped on the scale this morning and closed my eyes. I got hubby to look at the number for me because I couldn't bring myself to do it. Then he said it. I was down 0.5 from last week. I made him check and recheck just to make sure it wasn't some kind of fluke. What?? I'm DOWN 0.5??? I'm trying to think of an explanation but then it came to me. I gave blood yesterday and although it was my first time giving....They take about a pint of blood from you so I imagine that is what I can accredit my weight loss to. How much does a pint of blood weight I wonder? Hmm Just looked it up, apparently it's one pound. So they took one pound of blood from me yesterday. I'm sure it will slowly come back on but in the meantime, I'm going to get my butt in gear and wipe out this last 5 pounds.
Hope all you Friday Weighers had some success this morning! don't forget to send Randi your WI results for this week.
My weekend plans are actually pretty laid back this week. It seems like this is the first weekend in a long time where were weren't booked up for every minute of the entire weekend. Tonight we are going to the gym after work (have to make up for missing yesterday) then we are hitting up Wendy's for supper (Suggestions ladies???) and then we are going to the mall to start a little Christmas shopping and hopefully get some lights for the outside of our house. I can't figure out what to go with but hopefully I'll get inspired tonight.
Saturday we have our Goddaughter's 2nd Birthday party. It's at 3:00 and I heard that pizza is on the menu and I offered to bring Caesar Salad. My plan for Saturday is to eat a nice filling lunch around 1:00 and hopefully just have a little Caesar salad at the party (of cours eI'm bringing light caesar dressing to go tiwht it!). I should have lots of flex points left over so I might take Randi's advice and have a half a piece of cake or I might just nibble off Scott's plate. Birthday cake is a hard one. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not even worth the points so I'll have to wait and see. If I see it getting rave reviews than I may indugle in a half a piece, I'll let Scott be my test monkey on that one. He could probably eat half the cake and still end up losing a pound...men!
Saturday after the party, Scott and I are going skating in the evening and then out for a hot chocolate and then heading home with a movie in hand. Kind of like a little date night. I love those nights. It's supposed to be miserable here too since we are getting the tail end of Hurricane Noel (which will be a tropical storm when it hits us) so it will be nice to get cozied up on the couch with a good movie.
Sunday we are going to a flea market in the afternoon and after that we are both free game so we'll probably get some things done around the house and I'd like to try out a new recipe for supper so if you've tried anything spectacular lately, let me know!
Have a great weekend ladies! (Why do I always feel like Bob Barker when I call you ladies??)
