Someone brought brownies and cake to the party. After all my efforts! Still, I was ok. I was over the past two days, but I was very under on Monday, so it balances.
I am _feeling_ thinner, but am not allowing myself to get on the scale until tomorrow. Clothes are no longer tight, though. Now I just have to get to exercising. Maybe I will buy some DVDs.
We are being visited by Gustav today. Rainy and COLD. I only have two temps: cold and bearable. I hate the fraking winter!!! And fall. And spring! Bring on the heat!
My co-worker brought it doughnuts this morning, and I succumbed to half, than the rest. I find that I can have very unhealthy sweets and still stay in my range, but it can't be good to have 1/4-1/3 of my calories a day be from junk.

Whew! What a weekend. What a stressful couple of days. Thank G-d everything is okay...much better than expected! I felt so drained. Waiting was so hard. Thank G-d.
Of course, Hanna and Ike are still out there and I'm not relaxing yet.
As far as Spark-weekend, I did good yesterday and Sunday, but bad Friday and Saturday.
My friend from NOLA decided to evacuate to see me. She is a "Slumber Parties" (you can look it up online, NSFW) distrabutor and is taking advantage of being up here to throw a "toy" party, which is like a Tupperware party. So, I have planned a menu of healthy items. Everytime I thought about "just one things of cookies/chips/chocolate, etc" I said, "No! You will just eat all of that then." I am proud of myself; here is my menu:
Sliced red peppers
Whole wheat pita wedges
Deviled eggs (used 1/2 yolks)
Baked cut-up potatoes

According to the scale this morning I weigh 135.8. I think last time I weighed I was 135.4 (and then 136.4 the next day). It's not a lot of progress but I am trying not to be disappointed. It's not really about the weight, it's about how I look/feel, and when I feel like the blob around my hips and fat stomach, it's no fun. I'm going to be happy when the scale shows below 135 again. Is there a better time to weigh in than in the morning?
Tomorrow cannot be a Spark day (I'm being taught how to bake desserts and attending a cookout/party), so I'm going to try to be sure to make today, Sunday, and Monday are Spark days. I'm a little worried because we are going out tonight for a big couples dinner to a nice plae, but I'm sure I can find something. Fish is usually a good call.
Last night my bff and I WALKED to a Thai and Japanese place. For $10 we got miso soup (which I brought home to Ian), appitizer (I got edamame), entree (teriayki salmon), and a California roll. Mmmmm!
Damn I just realized I forgot to add to my tracker the piece of tempora I ate. Don't you hate "tasting" and "nibbling" "sampling," because then you have to remember to add it to your tracker? Argh.

Last night I promised myself that I would buy chocolate babka after my late work responsibility. so I did...and this time I only ate 1/3 on the way home *wince* The truth is, chocolate babka definetly gives you a lot of bang for your caloric buck. One ounce is small, but highly tasty, and only 100 calories. This morning as penance, I sliced some babka into one-ounce slices and bagged them.
I was listening to the DNC last night on the radio and then Biden at home. GObama! (I also saw "504bama," which I really liked.) I am getting so excited
My bff broke up with her boyfriend this morning. I have suggested sushi, and I have 100-calorie Slim-a-Bear bars at home. Hopefully I can help her wallow heathfully. This kind of thing is so sad.
I bought "Yes to Carrots" to try on my psoriasis.
