Lessons learned and jalapeño poppers.

Friday, April 26, 2013

I am back from my mini-vacation and I did pretty well getting exercise and I didn't go crazy eating either emoticon me. I did learn though that eating away from home is NOT as easy as I told myself it would be. Eating out every meal is HARD!!! I was bombarded emoticon on every side by shakes and fries and ice cream and every other delicious monstrosity there is. emoticon I did not give in to the desire for fries or a shake(REALLY HARD), I did however slip one time.....I ate some pepper poppers.....I thought that they were just fried peppers, kinda like pickle-o's like Sonic use to sell. No, they were peppers stuffed with cream cheese then deep fried. They were delicious...I instantly regretted eating them. emoticon emoticon I kicked myself in the seat for letting my fat loving self take control for all of the 15 seconds it took to order them. emoticon
I am home now and hopefully I will not have gained a ton and have to start over.....we will see in the morning. What is really bothering me is that before we left for our mini-vacation I was down another 2 pounds......a total of 27 pounds........I am afraid I may have to re-lose those.
I did not find anything to replace the shoes as a reward for 25 pound...I will....I like the idea of a pedicure.
I did get the opportunely to use a fancy treadmill, I only got to use it for 30 minutes but I really liked it. Then the next day I walk around the zoo all day from about 9 am to 4 pm. We had a good time.
I have to mention that I am certain that I would have messed up royally if my sweet hubby had not been there reminding me how far I have come, and encouraging me to emoticon emoticon He is so sweet.
The importance of tracking my food is all the more clear to me too. It keeps me in check emoticon . The morning weigh in will tell the true story...........update to come.
Happy day to all, hope everyone has had a good week and will have a great weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon
