Well, I definitely have to "pull it in tight" as my old WW leader would say. This weekend I was bad.
Yesterday mom made Sunday dinner. Roasted chicken with stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, collard greens, and biscuits. Yes, I had a little bit of everything. Actually, more than a little bit. As I was wolfing down my second plate (yes I said second plate), Kina says to me, "Mom, you know you aren't supposed to have seconds!"
Now if my 9 year old is telling me this, I know there is a problem.
As I sat there with my full, aching belly, mom pulls out dessert. Pound cake and vanilla ice cream. I serve Kina her dessert and I slice myself a small piece of cake and taste a spoonful of ice cream. Kina again looks at me and makes a comment. "Mom, if your stomach hurts, why are you eating cake?"
Wow, I gotta keep this kid out of my business!
So... today I'm pulling it in tight.
On my to-do list today:
1) Drink plenty of water.
2) Exercise. My current WW leader mentioned that activity is not the same as exercise. HUH?
So I better work on getting my heart rate up.
3) Eat only healthy, nutritious food. No empty calories. I have had plenty this weekend.
By the end of the day, this to-do list better change into a ta-da list.
Make today great!
