OH! Did you hear that sound? In case you missed it, that was me falling off the wagon this week. Because I am committed to this (slip ups and all) I feel I should get this all off my chest...even though it won't take away any pounds with it.
Thursday: Went to Panera with the devil, I mean Dan. Got half a Sierra Turkey sandwich and cheddar and broccoli soup. (Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
Friday: Showed tremendous will power in the AM and early PM. In the later PM? Not so much. Here is what happened: Cole and I met some friends at the park to play. The moms suggested going to lunch. Everyone ate the yummy fast food, but I had anticipated the lunch idea, so I brought a South Beach bar and stopped for a tall, skinny cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks. Cole ate about 3 bites of his food and I REALLY wanted to scarf down his leftovers...but didn't. Yay me! Or so I thought. Later that night I went to a crop with a moms group I am a part of. We were all to bring a snack to share. I made a fat free cake (angel food cake mix made with a can of crushed pineapple instead of what the box says to add, and then frost with f/f whip cream) and ate soooooooooooome at home and took the rest. Before I got there I thought I would be good and maybe just eat a little. WELL, I ate popcorn (which is allowed on the diet, but I'm sure not the movie theatre butter kind!)and a pinwheel cookie (can't remember when the last time I had one of those! maybe 8 years old) and other little snacks that I won't go into detail about. I did drink diet pop though! :)
Saturday: Cole had a birthday party to go to...with pizza and CHOCOLATE cake. I ate pizza and cake. But again, drank diet pop. (like that is going to save me!) THEN later that evening we had a going away party to go to for a lady in Dan's office. All I will say is: more cake, more diet pop and BBQ. I ate like I had never even heard of a diet before. Then more cake.
Obviously I am an ALL OR NOTHING kind of girl. I either have to give up bad stuff for a period of time or I will eat it 'till it's gone. Thank goodness I got rid of all the treats in the house when I started this diet or I guarantee I would have been rooting through the cupboards this weekend.
After all that eating, I knew Sunday - Tuesday I would have to be good. So I kicked it into gear by exercising and eating things from the diet.
Then we met Dan for dinner Monday night. Went to Chili's...got grilled chicken breast on a whole wheat bun (yay!) with bacon and swiss cheese and honey mustard sauce. (boo) Oh, and the yummy seasoned fries. You know, when I go out to eat, I wanna eat bad b/c I am out to eat. Since I am on the diet, we don't go out to eat anymore or get take out.
I exercised a lot in these past three days! More cardio than ever. Last night during the Biggest Loser I exercised a good part of the show. Hell, I evened ironed to burn more calories!!!!! That, my friends, is dedication!
I weigh: 158
Ok people, I have seen the light...after all that bad eating, I still lost weight because I did cardio. I get it. I need to get moving. I will.
****Jacey is 151.5. That's down a good bit from last week...her little girl has pneumonia and Jacey hasn't been eating much. Please pray for her and her little girl.
