A weekend off
Monday, February 23, 2009
Well, suffice to say, I did NOT follow plan this weekend at all. I refused to weigh myself this morning because I didn't want to see the number, but probably will when I get home.
Maybe it won't be so bad, because I followed my calories very closely all week leading into the weekend, because I knew it would be a big drinking situation at the law revue after-party (and it was).
But, I hadn't been out in a very, very long time, and I needed it. I needed to just let loose for one night. And I don't regret it, really. Because even if I had an entire day's worth of calories in beer, not to mention the "jumbo slice" afterwards, it maybe adds a pound to my journey, if that. So, no big deal (as long as it is a true rarity- but I haven't had a day like this in at least a month, so my first day off in a month is not bad).
Also, I just chatted with an old friend who had lots of weight-loss healthy cooking questions. I found it incredibly motivational. Helping her to know what some good ideas are reminds me of what really works, and what I need to focus on.
Here's to a good week on track!!!
