This weekend....

Monday, May 13, 2013

This weekend has been challenging - but that may be in my head.

Saturday was my first weight watchers meeting - I've been doing the online program for a few weeks and recently found out that a friend of mine was going to the meetings - she told me how much it would mean to her and how blessed she would be if she had a partner to attend the meetings with so I decided to make the switch.

The meeting is a local church and is at 9:15 Saturday mornings. To be honest - I'm usually still sleeping at that time lol but I made sure I was up and away we went. I wasn't too pleased with my weigh in number but I'm considering this a fresh start.

After the meeting I had about 20 minutes to change before a couple friends & I started the drive to London, ON - a friend of ours from church passed away and there was a memorial service for him in London - so we made the drive.

Because of being out of town pretty much all day - every single meal was eaten out - I think I made good choices - they could have been better sure but they also could have been a lot worse!

Sunday we did a brunch after church for the mothers - there was sooooo much good food - I made coconut meringues & bought cupcakes (didn't have a cupcake). thankfully there were no leftovers so I couldn't pack anything up lol

Then Sunday evening was dinner at my moms house for mothers day - prime rib, roasted potatoes, greek salad, cauliflower, gravy, yorkshire pudding - it was hard to limit myself but I did!

So now it's Monday morning - I'm at work with my tea & oatmeal from Tim Hortons - not a huge fan of the oatmeal but it's only 6 points and I'm hoping it'll grow on me.

I want to be really really good this weekend as I'm going to Montreal on Friday - home on Tuesday and it'll be difficult to get exercise in - I'll do my best with my eating but that'll be hard too.

Have a good day!!

    There is always something to make it hard, but I think the key is to try to make the right choice anyway. Unfortunately, I'm not too good at doing that lately.

    At least you were attempting to make proper eating choices. It's not always easy when you are out of town and at different places. Way to go for trying to keep on track.

    great job!!
why don't you make a baked oatmeal and bring it with you in the mornings? I buy the frozen mixed berries, and even throw in some chopped nuts and maybe even a couple chocolate chips. It's really good because you know what's going into it. I think it's on my Pinterest. Email me if you want the recipe!
