Two steps forward, One step back

Monday, February 25, 2013

Well, I did pretty good on my eating plan for about a week and a half. Then Valentine's Day hit, and I got given something like 8 small boxes of chocolates. Then we went out to dinner that night. And then we went out of town for the long weekend. And then, and then, and then. Grrrr.

BUT yesterday (Sunday) I mostly did good. I ate a pretty healthy brunch and snacks. Yes, I did have Taco Bell for dinner, and ate too much. I'm back up 3 pounds after having dropped 7 really quickly. But 3 weeks in and down 4lbs isn't bad. And not having cake and ice cream and candy yesterday, means that I'm not craving junk so far today. I have a lovely leg-of-lamb in the fridge (already cooked) waiting on me for dinner tonight. I can reset. My pants are fitting looser already, even if not loosely enough to go down a size.

    I also had a pretty rough Valentines Day. It was Friday date night with Jason at a hotel, had champagne and then a box of Sees chocolates, then Saturday and Sunday I didn't track. Monday we went to Amarillo so I was off again and then Tuesday was ballet day so I wasn't home. Luckily I still went down that week over a pound, but I felt dissapointed. Now we can get back with it and get serious again. The most important thing is that we don't give up because we had a bad week. We get back on it and never give up! We can do this! You can do this. Eating better helps you feel better. I'm also jealous of the leg of lamb. I can't find that here, lol. emoticon emoticon emoticon
