Ahh Mondays. A great day to start all over again, wouldn't you say?
I actually didn't do too bad this weekend. I did have a few treats but I mainly stuck to things I was allowed to have, I just had more of them than usual. Considering the weekend I had, I'm quite proud of myself (more on the weekend in a bit) Friday night I did have a 1/2 glass of red wine and a 100 calorie Aero bar. Nothing has ever tasted so good, I assure you. Saturday was pretty good all day, and Saturday night I made a banana and yogurt smoothie as a treat. I really didn't need it but that little treat kept me from going crazy over the weekend. I also had a little bag of All Bran Bites too. Not something I should have had but it's better than a whole chocolate bar right? I needed something to do while I'm shop vaccing my flooded basement right?
Which brings me to my "strength of character" weekend as I am now calling it.
Friday night was great. A friend came over and we watched a chick flick and did some scrapbooking. Then came Saturday, and with it? A blizzard that dropped over 30 cms of snow. Ugh. So I decide to make one last ditch effort to go to the store to stock up on girly movies and possbly another 100 calorie Aero bar. I only made it about 30 feet before I plowed into a snowbank at the end of my driveway. And that's exactly where my car stayed (not by choice, the thing wouldn't budge) Fine. I'm snowed in. Not a bad thing right? I'll catch up on some landry, put the dishwasher on, clean up and just relax. Called the plow guy and set him up for Sunday. All good. Put on a little Nanny Diaries action and I'm starting to let go of the stress of backing my car into a snowbank. Pause the movie for a yogurt and Banana smoothie, The blender is downstairs in the landry room. Run downstairs, crack open the door and *Spalsh* I'm standing in a swimming pool that once was my landry room. My little mat that used to be in front of my washer to keep my feet warm when doing landry is now floating around my landry room and could possibly be used as a floatation device. The water was gushing out of the back of my washing machine. After a good 10 mins of frantic running around and screaming I got the water shut off and was left with a good 4 hours of quality shop vac time. Sigh. I can't believe I'm glad to be back at work!
Scott come homes this Saturday! Woohoo! Can't wait to see him. He has been working so much down there and he is exhausted and ready to come home. This week should be busy though since I am picking up my 2 year old niece today and she is moving in with me until Friday while her Mom & Dad are in Cuba! I'll be so busy I won't even have time to miss Scott!
Foodwise the weekend was ok not stellar. I was drawn to chocolate chips for some reason but I managed to keep it under control. If I was doing WW I definitely would have been way under 35 flex points so I'm happy!
Happy Monday everyone!
