I'm completely psyched and more than ready to get down to business and finally say goodbye to these last 15 lbs. They have been hanging around for so long and looking back, for the past year I have been playing around with least last 10-15 lbs. Up a pound, down a pound, up a pound, down a pound. Not a good cycle.
Our party went really well. I surprised myself by staying away from the food most of the night. I was too busy mingling and having fun so there wasn't much hover time and I stayed away from the Potluck table as much as possible. Although I did have more than a few bites and I tried a little bit of everything. Which is not a bad thing at all....what IS a bad thing is the breakfast I had this morning which included bacon, hashbrowns, & all the perfect trimmings for your typical "hangover breakfast". And I'm also pretty sure that the pizza I had for supper last night was not a good choice at all. I did make one good choice yesterday though, I spent about 2 hours after supper getting ready for my week. I made a huge chicken vegetable soup and cooked up some lunch portions. No excuses now. It's all right there in front of me.
I also took Scott to the airport yesterday morning first thing. Not fun. This is the first time we've been away from each other for more than one night since we've been married. I miss him like crazy already and he's only been gone a day! The house was sooo quiet last night. He did call me from the Toronto airport and then again from Kansas last night so I know he made it fine and he's all settled in. Two whole weeks. Ugh. At least it gives me motivation to stick to my plan and look better than ever when he comes home!
Meal plan for today:
1 Cup of Kashi Go Lean
1 Cup of skim milk
1 cup of baby carrots
(this is the hard part! It's sooo much food!)
4 oz of chicken breast
1 cup of brown rice with reduced sodium soy sauce
2 1/2 cup of veggies
4 oz of salmon and 2 1/2 cups of veggies
2 1/2 cups of chicken veggie soup
1 bag of 100 cal popcorn or 1 1/4 cup of fat free Jello.
Honestly, it's kind of nice to take the guesswork out of what I am eating. There isn't a lot of wiggle room, which is exactly what I need right now. Structure.
I jumped on the scale this morning and I was up almost 3 lbs...most likely due to the awful choices I made yesterday but I'm not worried, I know they will fly off in no time and they'll be taking some of their buddies with them.
How did everyone make out this weekend?
