No Pie really but the rest is true!
Last Weekend and this past weekend were big cake weekends for us. We had a celebration for my niece who just graduated from Massage Therapy School. Yea Danielle! Her mom Becky (Thoms1) made a wonderful chocolate cherry fudge cake. We also made Potato Salad and Sloppy Joes. How much comfort does one need? Right! Well I did a weight check-in on Monday morning just to see how I had done. I gained 5 lbs! YIKES! It was like Oh My! I am getting tired of these bad weekends. I knew I needed to make sure the week ahead I stayed on plan and got my exercise. That was imperative! I made sure I stayed within my calorie range, drank at least 8 glasses of water, I also tried to stay within the guidelines of my nutrients. I did not starve or knock myself out with the exercise just the normal stuff.
Friday is my official weigh-in day. I got up and of course I weighed. It was 158.4 Woo Hoo!! I had lost 1.2 from the week before on Friday. Whew!!
This weekend we had my great nephew's birthday Party to attend. There was this gorgeous cake with spiderman all over that bad boy! Thank goodness Brandi only had cake and ice cream! I don't think I could have tolerated another weekend like last week. Last night Becky reminded me we were going to a later Mass so we could attend a couple from our parish 50th Wedding Anniversary.
They had a celebration meal catered for family and friends from the parish. The food was so good! The cake was mui delisioso! I don't even speak spanish it was that good! So here I am again with a weight gain over the weekend. I will take a sneak peek tomorrow morning. We did go out around 4 pm for a walk. It was a 76 min. 3.5 mile walk. Not long enough to burn enough calories but at least we got moving. Becky got on spark and told me about YOUR WEEKEND SURVIVAL GUIDE! I asked if she would print it out! I now have it and will not let it out of my sight for the next weekends!
Lessons learned? Ummmm I'm thinking...
1. I love cake! I will not deprive myself of cake!
I must be aware of the days that I know I will
be around my sweet friend and plan accordingly.
It is easy for me to say that but to put it into
action and following thru are two different things.
2. I hate feeling like I have binged the weekend away.
I haven't really. I am just adding something that
is not normal to my food plan and gee am I feeling
just a bit guilty? I think so.
3. Did I get back up and dust off all those cake crumbs
and ice cream drips from my face and chest (LOL)
and get back on track? You betcha!
I am only 8.4 lbs away from my goal weight BABY! If I were not to lose another lb. I wouldn't be bothered by it. I am just so thankful that I found spark.
