Day 4 - Weekends are Hard

Sunday, July 14, 2013

I think weekends are my weekly motivation. Saturday was going well, an hour of swimming, some house cleaning, took my notary test, but then all Hades broke loose at 9:30pm! Here I think I am done for the night and my wonderful husband runs out after we put the kids to bed. I thought he was going to get gas (cheaper at night) and some Coca Cola, but no, he comes back with Dairy Queen... A medium Butterfinger blizzard for him and a small smores one for me... I felt obligated to eat it, I didn't want to seem ungrateful but then this morning I look at OMG 840 CALORIES!!! UGH!!! Well there went all my good work yesterday, I would have swam for another hour if I known that was coming home!

Today no much better... I needed to go grocery shopping, but I wanted to eat first, well my eldest ate the last waffle, there was NO milk so cereal was out, my youngest had a pop tart and the last apple, and my hubby had the other pop tart, so here I am trying to think of what to eat, no milk, no eggs, and nothing quick. I found a breakfast bowl in the freezer that my hubby takes to work on occasion, problem solved and only for 490 calories :-( Lunch, after shopping was easier, but we had left over chicken from KFC the night before, so I had 2 pieces of that and 2 cheese sticks with my water. I think I am at my calorie goal for today and there are still over 8 hours to go!!! Looks like salad for dinner for me tonight, but I am going to try my hardest to hit my numbers and not go over.

I can't wait until Monday. Weekdays are so much easier to keep on plan! Mission for today: look up calorie content of Dairy Queen and see what I can get there that won't break the caloric bank!

    Hi, I have been there too check out my blog on the dq smore milkshake. I looked up the ice cream sandwhich is I think 190 calories... I have so e ideas for weekend breakfast ideas.. Try pancakes and make them fr scratch and freeze. Then when you need a quick meal the kids can grab one too. Try making vegetable frittatas in muffin tins and freeze for a fast meal. I really like making vegetable soup. Low in calories and I always have enough left over for the week. Well if you want o connect up with me please do so.
