Today marks the last day of my paid time off from work. Boo! It was a nice relaxing ten days from reality but tomorrow I go back into the corporate world to wrap things up before my travels to our Minneapolis office. I feel refreshed and ready to take on the world!
Memorial Weekend was a WRECK food wise. I did okay the first day, Saturday, but it all went downhill from there. I drank way too much Saturday night and found myself at Perkin's Sunday morning. I could have ordered something healthy, but I didn't. I decided I was going to order the Chicken Fried Biscuits and Gravy. OOPS! I felt sick half of the day because of that stupid choice. It continued on with chips and salsa, hummus and pretzels, nutella, etc etc. Today wasn't much better. I ate McDonald's (My hangover food of choice) I felt I had a HUGE relapse. My friend joked it was because we were across state lines (Michigan) so it didn't count. I think the worst part about it is that we spent about $70 on HEALTH food at Walmart before we went... and we didn't eat it. Goodbye to my self control.
My family was impressed with the weight I've lost so far. That felt awesome. Really awesome. It still wasn't enough to make me watch what I put in my mouth. Sigh.
I'll see how much damage it did when I get on the scale tomorrow, hopefully not too bad! If it does then I just work harder the rest of the week. If it does, I'll have learned a lesson. I've already learned it. It's not worth gaining a few pounds for a few hours of fun. Food is literally a drug to me.
June is fast approaching and that means setting new goals and rethinking my priorities. The next holiday weekend is the 4th of July weekend and I hope I learn from my mistakes.
I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing Memorial Day Weekend. I know for me it was all about getting family together and having fun, but a shout out to all of the soldiers who help keep this country free :)
