Double the Treat Meals

Sunday, April 20, 2008

I've had two "treat" nights this weekend, and I'm glad I did because I enjoyed both of them. On Friday, we went with a friend to karaoke and made some new friends along the way. There was nothing there to eat, so I came home at 3:00 in the morning and ate bad food. Saturday, we went with some friends and all of our kids to O'Charley's. I just decided to eat everything that I wanted. I had three rolls with butter, some nachos and salsa, and my main entree consisting of a chicken breast with rice and a beef burrito. All of it was yummy and we had a good time. We then took the kids to Monkey Joe's which is an indoor facility filled with inflatable slides and obstacle courses. On the way home the kids crashed in the car. When I put my food in the computer that night, I found out that I ate about 3000 calories at dinner alone. I would have never thought that I could eat that much---and I didn't even feel overly stuffed when I left. Oh well! I'm not upset about it. I'll just pick up and keep going today and tomorrow and the next and I'll eventually see success. I'm excited about this upcoming week because I'm almost over my cold and can get back to the gym after five days off. I'm going to finish off this month strong and hopefully see some progress at the end of the month. Today, however, may prove to be a struggle since we're going to a family fish fry; I'll do my best. Have a wonderful week!

    Where were you 5 months ago? What's my point? You've come a long way and you are making tons of progress. Think back to "before" think of what you have been doing since joining SP. Yay you!! Hope your treats were yummy. I had lots of popcorn and M&Ms last night and today I had a steak sandwich! YUM. I can relate! Glad to hear that you are feeling better and getting over your cold. I am right there with you this month (I was off for a bit b/c I was sick and missed my workouts, too) and I don't feel as though I've made the great physical changes I was hoping for...we'll see. No challenge we can't overcome!! Here's to a strong finish! Big hug.
