Weekly check in.... hoping to get blogging more often but this will suffice for now.
Had a rough food week, a lot of self sabotage going on. Wed was Valentines day and I think i was feeling a little sorry for myself.... made a gorp of peanuts and chocolate chips...
Thursday I was at my knitting group when a friend texted did want to meet them for lunch.... sure... I ordered the 0 point salad with shrimp, crab and scallops on it ... and then added spring rolls and flourless chocolate cake ....
Friday was bowling. After we go to the farmers market where they have a bakery that has the most amazing fresh donuts.... so of course I had to have one. Which then set off a little binge of 3 pieces of Russell Stover candy I bought on 1/2 price and another piece from a local candy shop my friend I bowled with bought my because it had coconut on it and she knows I love coconut. But I made pot of WW Garden Vegetable soup for dinner to help me get back on track.
Saturday I stayed HOME... I I knitted, I read, I watched movies ... I was a slug. I made a pot of 0 point Turkey Vegetable Chili.
New knitting project I bought at the shop on Thursday. I'll post a picture when I finish it.
Trying to keep my hands busy so I don't eat.
Sunday I had plans to go out to dinner and then got invited out to lunch as well. I also woke up not feeling great. I backed out of the dinner, but did go out to lunch with my son and 2 grandkids. I ordered shrimp tacos which were a little more WW points than I had expected. When will I learn.
Monday I went to the Dr... most likely just a cold... we shall see. More reading and knitting.
Yesterday was Tuesday , my busy day.
I went to WW where I was praying for a maintain but somehow wound up with a small 0.4 loss.
I need to keep on track if I don't want my bad eating to come visit me NEXT week as sometimes these thing take a while to catch up with us.
Since I was not feeling 100% my exercise class was a little draining, but good for me. My friends and I came home and putzed around sorting some stuff out. Not a super productive day on that front but that's OK, we'll get it done and it turns out to be more about socializing which is good for my soul.
This next week is shifting around as I write... Tonight is French class and then off to Bonco where I will knowingly overeat. I'll try to do better but since I will not have eaten dinner (class is 4:30-6:30) and this woman makes amazing food.... I will try to NOT eat the dessert at the end of the evening. My lunch bunch on Thursday got pushed to next Wed. Sunday I may attend a cocktail party with live saxophone music (I may skip this) and have just been asked to watch 3 granddaughters Mon-Wed of next week while son and DIL go to Hilton Head for a funeral.
Next week holds the moved lunch on Wed, dinner out Friday with my Civic association for First Friday. I need to map out my calendar and plan ahead. I need to make good decisions and then stick to them.
I had been humming along really liking the the WW plan and having no problem sticking to it but really felt I stumbled this past week. I let things sway me and then let dominos start falling.
Time to pick myself up and set myself back up for success.
On a fun note: I plan on going to Boston in August for the weekend with the NFLN group on Facebook. Looking forward to this! Anyone else on here going to that?
