on my way

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Ate lunch out with friends today (frequently happens on a Sunday), but did better this time, and actually need a few more calories to get into my "range" sometime this evening. I've lost 4.2 pounds so far, after one week. I know from experience that this fast loss will stop soon, but while it is here, I am going to enjoy it and feel good about it.

Darn. I have done so well all week, not eating out at all since last Thursday except for Sunday lunch with some friends. Tonight, my granddaughter was talking about enchiladas for dinner (hers were going to be homemade) and I thought that sounded good, so I stopped at a Mexican restaurant for dinner. I don't feel badly about it--it was a purposeful decision, not an impulsive giving in to temptation, and I ordered a small portion and carefully didn't eat all of that, but darn. When I entered it all in my tracker....over 3000 calories in that one meal!! I would be scared to find out how many are in the meal I would normally have ordered if I wasn't being careful. Oh, well. I still don't feel badly about it, but next time I am going to try to do some tracking BEFORE I hit the restaurant--and that isn't going to be soon!

    It's okay... we all have our days! And the good news is that one day won't sabotage your whole week! Tomorrow is a new day!

this is getting to be a habit

Silly, I know, but I have to admit I am enjoying writing something on this blog thing every day, and I am having a lot of fun picking up SparkPoints. Have no idea why. I know they are worthless in any real-world scenario, but none the less. I have gotten into getting my "free spin" each day, and have done that for several days running. Such are life's simple pleasures. emoticon

I'm on a roll

Didn't eat out again today!! In spite of getting home late, and being very hungry as I passed all those restaurants and fast food places. AND, although it isn't my immediate goal, I've tracked my food religiously the last two days, down to measuring the mustard for my lunch time sandwich this morning. AND I've got to say, I've never really understood the whole "on-line community" bit (I am not fond of talking on the phone, either), but I am really finding it encouraging to be getting all of these notes from people who are obviously paying attention the the struggles of this newcomer. Thanks to all of you. I need to spend some time this weekend figuring out more about this whole blogging thing, so that I can return the favor.
