My Tuesday

After eating whatever struck my fancy for what feels like 3 weeks, I stood on the scales on Monday night. OK, I'm ready to fess up. I did have my shoes on and hadn't done my usual potty trip, but it read 151.4lbs. WOW! Well, it had said the same thing the week before. Keep in mind, these are unofficial weighs taken directly after the weekend without concern for accuracy. Call it a weigher-inner perk. After I got home at ate supper on Monday my own scale was in the high 150's.

So, yesterday I have calculated eating around 20 pts of pretty good choices. Mostly f&v, but also coffee with whole milk, some WW multi-grain bread. I ate at Tim Horton's for supper and chose a bowl of chili and only ate half the bun. All told, the scale move down for this morning to around the 146/147 mark. I tend to find my home scale first morning weigh relatively representative of my before supper evening weigh at WW. I think a week of eating clean foods will help. I'll be moving to more of a 20% protein intake and working on around 60% carbs, mostly complex. I need to move away from sugary, fatty foods entirely for a while.

Forgot the school supply list yesterday, so Ci and I went shopping. She bought some beading supplies and then we went to the mall. She found a great sweater at The Childrens Place and I also picked up some lunch bags there as well as a 3-ring binder (for myself). We also bought some gym slippers for dance for the girls and window-shopped elsewhere. I resisted Cinnabons coming in and out of the mall - I think I'm going to have to boycott that entrance.

Have a great week.

Good for you for resisting Cinnabons. You're a better person than me. Those places drive me crazy in the malls. And since there aren't any malls near me I don't have to worry about the temptation very often, whew.

Hey!! I haven't talked to Mandy but I think Amanda did - she had the twins and all is well from what I could tell in Amanda's post. I don't think Mandy has internet thought??

Sounds like you guys had a blast on vactaion and that you didn't do too bad since you are maintaining. You go girl! Are you still doing Phit and Phat?? I'm ready to be able to work out at full strength......I miss having the energy to pump out an hour of cardio!

NO WAY that wasn't wool! Oh dear heavens - I can't imagine. I've been sooooo hot lately that I have almost contemplated wearing sleeveless but my bat wings look even worse since I got pregnant. Don't want to scare anyone!
