Today was my best friend's bridal shower. Everything went really well if I do say so myself. Things went smoothly, and everyone seemed to have a good time. She got tons of wonderful gifts, which they'll hopefully be able to use to make their happy house a home. This is a second marriage for both of them, and they have sort of the "leftovers" from the first failed marriages (in this case, neither of them ended up with much of anything!)... Now they have more really nice stuff to add to the things they have already purchased for their home.
I think I did pretty well. I tried to keep myself REALLY busy so that I didn't sit down to eat. I thought it would keep me from pigging out on all the good food. I did allow myself to have some of the cabbage and noodles, and I also had some of the Hawaiian Kielbasi that I made myself. I also only had ONE BITE of cake. That was pretty good, right?!?
Well... The bad news of the day is that I'm not a loser. I never thought I'd say that sentence! I am happy that I lost 3.5 lbs last week. I have to hope that my 1.5 lb gain this week is from all the SALT that I put on the cabbage and noodles in the last two days. I never salt food, so I'm going to blame it on that for now. Hopefully, next week I'll have lost that 1.5 back off plus a little more. Either way, I'm going to attack this week full force!
Another little hiccup occurred last night, but I'm going to work around it... When I was doing MFC, I felt a pop in the back of my left leg. Well, it was impossible to do much after that, I kept soldiering through. After I quit using the leg, it seemed to actually get worse. I'm not sure what I've done, but I tripped over a little girl today at the shower, and in the process of catching myself I felt it pop again. Whatever it is, it hurts like H#%$!!! I may have to modify things this week, but I'm not giving up!!!
