Pound by Pound

Wow, What a week. How did I manage to lose another pound this week after the week I had.

I tried to order healthy while eating out, but didn't think I'd done so great. Maybe that Apple Burrito dessert I ate at Jungle Jim's was covered by my weekly flexxies. Here's a recap:

Friday night Pizza Hut: Spaghetti with plum tomatoes and some grilled chicken, some of the LOs kids pizza
Saturday afternoon: Jungle Jim's Grilled chicken taco salad and dessert, some of Mom's steak and shrimp
Sunday morning: Half of a Tim's ham and cheese scone
Sunday lunch: Cora's spinach omelette with swiss cheese and some of Ci's chocolate sauce
Monday: lunch out, supper out - decent choices
Tuesday: lunch out - decent choice
Wednesday: More candy than I would have like, but less than prior years

I guess when you really boil it down it's not as bad as it felt at the time. I hate eating out, but with the exception of the dessert my choices were all decent - even the fast food choices. I also brought a bit of food with and it was all good choices (maybe not the best, but not the worst). I also passed the bread products on - not saying I didn't have some, but just not everything.

I had actually stressed a bit about weigh-in this week and almost didn't go. I'm glad I did, but not just because I lost. I didn't attend a meeting, but just to be accountable to yourself feels good.

Cheers, Have a great week.

Good for you for being able to post a loss! You are doing fantastic and just the fact that you made healthy choices while eating out says a lot!

I really admire how hard you work at being healthy. You are the epitomy of FULL TIME mom and wife and yet you still make your health a priority......that is the real goal - health before a number - you ARE making that happen!! Way to go!
