this weekend was probably the greatest weekend of my year thus far. i spent it with my family. now that sounds like something that's not all that great...but for me, it was, because i don't see my family too often. it's not that they aren't around, it's just that rifts and divide have pretty much plagued my family for the last 40 years. but on saturday, a surprise visit from my cousin changed all of that. with tears in her eyes, she invited me to a family event, saying that she didn't care about what anyone else said because she loves her family.
so do i.
and i won't lie, i lost track of all calories eaten this weekend, because 1. i didn't have a computer to log into my sparkpeople account and 2. i had people, parties and fun bumrushing me from every angle.
i am sure that i stayed under 3000 calories for each day BUT i probably didn't drink nearly enough water. i really couldn't go back and track if i wanted to because i honestly don't remember everything i ate or the ingredients in certain dishes. if i would've been able to plan accordingly i would have but this weekend was totally unexpected so i was caught off guard.
all i can do is start fresh today and get back on track. i love being on track, but falling off this weekened was just so worth it. i had family cooking for me, a baby shower, a mini football party...it was wonderful.
every calorie was worth it! but next time...i'll be ready!
