Monday's Weekend Update

Monday, March 18, 2013

First and foremost....I SO blew it over the weekend. Not the setting down, stuffing my face blew it. The snacking non-stop kind. Friday we had dinner at Island Flavor (a Hawaiian place). I had the
Kalbi ribs with rice and I asked for a green salad on the side (the salad had a couple of slices of boiled sweet potato and a couple of quarters of tomato, a bit of 1000 Island dressing on it) instead of mac salad. I didn't eat all of the ribs. I took home about 1/3 of it.

Then I had a piece of Chantilly cake.

Sat was normal. We did our shopping. Getting things for when the kids get here on Friday. We stopped for lunch at In & Out, got it to go and ate at home. Then for dinner we had a pizza (frozen, baked at home) I chopped and added the left over ribs to it. And I had a Shamrock Shake before dinner. emoticon

On Sunday we had breakfast (I made a bacon scramble for me) and then just kind of snack until dinner. I had put a corn beef in the crock pot and cooked it for 8 hrs (with baby red taters, onions, and green cabbage). It was great! But sometime during the day Sunday I consumed a whole box of Thin Mints. emoticon

So it wasn't one of my better weekends. Then today...I was only able to get a 40 mins workout in at work. I was training one of the new guys and didn't even notice it was lunch time! emoticon

On the GREAT news side...hubby has rejoins Spark! He went to the Dr and she was concerned because he looks to be, if not diabetic, at least per-diabetic. She gave him a test thingies and he's been doing it twice a day. I'm logging for him (food wise) for now. And his feet hurt so bad he doesn't workout. I know he'll be SHOCKED when he see's what he consumes each day. He's joined a few SP teams (mostly ones I'm in too). I'm going to keep encouraging him to keep doing this! If you'd like to friend him...he's Gecko50. emoticon

Also..he PASSED his big test on Friday, so now he can be an SR Inspector at work. It means a promotion and pay raise! He's worked hard for it and I'm SO proud of him! emoticon

Dinner tonight is up in the air. I read a few more shortish books this weekend. Karry, Nick, Caleb and Malia will be here Fri (sometime!). I can't wait! Although it pretty much suspends workouts all of next week. emoticon

So that's it for me and my weekend...Hope yours was great and only 4 more days until the weekend!

    Thin Mints! I thought you had eaten all of your stash already??? You were hoarding??? emoticon

    Well a belated congrats to Chuck! I wish I could get Arn to actually get on here. He IS a member. Maybe if I told him Chuck was on here he'd get on his Spark Page or something. Does he have one? I don't know if Arn does or not...

    I'm glad I already ate dinner when I read this....everything sounded SO yummy. I know I had to curtail my dining out at my favorite places until I had more control over myself and what I ate, and knew I could order healthier options and be ok. Even now it's hard sometimes.

    emoticon on hubby's promo and raise, that's always exciting!

    Jump right back into the game, don't let a bad weekend side track you. You can do it.
