I was back on track. I was tracking my food -- not really working out, but doing some Zumba and walking -- staying away from things that I should stay away from. Then Friday came....
I took the kids to see G-Force and of course they weren't hungry before we left the house, but they were STARVING (that's how they put it) about an hour before the movie. We went to a burger joint next to the theater. They shared a kids meal and I had a kids meal. Yes people, that includes fries. This was just the start to my stupidity. I found at a store that morning Coconut M&M's. I thought "Hmm, those sound interesting, I'll just try a few." Well, it's not possible to eat just a few of these -- they are phenomenal! So of course I had to finish the whole bag so that I wouldn't snack on them all weekend right? See, I knew you would agree with me. :(
That night I went to another movie with some friends. The Ugly Truth -- and the ugly truth is that I should have known better than to go to a Tavern afterwards. I didn't drink, but I did partake in Fried Pickles and Nachos.
Saturday did not fair any better. It was my son's 4th birthday and I was making a cake with REAL icing and pudding in the mix. Well you can't make icing without tasting it to make sure it's good. The mixers really don't clean up well if you don't lick them clean before putting them in the dishwasher. (I swear at this point I had lost it.)
So, I get the cake all iced and decorated, then it's time to cook dinner. My son wanted spaghetti for supper (a weakness of mine). Now normally I make it with Extra Lean Ground White Turkey meat, but since people were coming over for his birthday I went with Extra Lean Ground Beef. Not a bad choice, but not the best one. I usually use Whole Wheat Pasta, but I used the Smart Choice stuff instead, so it would look white. I also made rolls (these at least were whole wheat).
I didn't weigh or measure anything, and I had to taste it as I cooked so I could tell if it tasted OK. Now don't get me wrong, the meal was sooo good, but I ate far too much of it.
I am so mad at myself. I went from 146.4 on Wednesday to 153 this morning. I know a lot of it is water -- I had a ton of sodium, but it is so discouraging. Especially since I was at 134 this time last year! Ugh I have got to stop this!
