Opps! I lost ONE pound not ELEVEN!

Sunday, March 09, 2014

I apologize for the scare, No I did not lose 11 pounds in one day, I lost it in38 days!
Sorry, I entered in the wrong numbers and instead of it declaring I had lost a pound, SP announced I had lost 11 pounds! LOL

It was not until the congrats came in that I realised what I had done! LOL


I am 0.2 pounds away from my first goal which is to be in the healthy BMI zone!

This was Friday's dinner:

Yesterday was so busy that I decided to cook our beef in the slow cooker together with all the vegetables allocated, and this is how it turned out. I added unsalted beef broth and a dash of Worcestershire sauce and it was so tender and delicious! I had a spinach salad on the side! The boys has mashed potato with theirs.

Now, the week ahead is going to be tricky. Tomorrow is my son's birthday, so that will mean eating out, we are going to go watch the movie "Frozen" first. DH is taking the day off work to spend with us! :-)

Tuesday is the girls spa day and lunch out. ( Mother- daughter thing with my SIL, neice and daughter)

Sat is the kids birthday party ( combined) and then potluck couples dinner in the evening.

Sunday are my niece and nephew's birthday too including dinner!

I can see it is going to take some forethought and determination to get through all those events without gaining a pound or two!

We had our time change today and I am tired! Could do with that hour of sleep back!

    Weird, the time change actually has added a spring to my step! lol Or maybe it was the chinook we got this weekend! (Love watching the snow melt!!)

    Keep up the awesome progress, Mel!

    Oh hahaha! That is funny! I did this once before too. I was getting messages and could not understand what all the fuss was about until I went and looked.
    Sounds like a fun week planned. Enjoy, we only live once and we need to enjoy that time with our loved ones. With all the great habits you have now incorporated into your life, you will do just fine!

    Have a great week!

    Your food looks really good ~drool~

    After last weekend you now know how fast you can lose it again, still it's better to minimize the damage.. Potlucks are easy - bring approved food, even if only in a container for you :) I bet the veggie timbale would be a big hit!
    Birthday parties.. well... depends on how much you have to have birthday cake LOL DO the best you can, splurge on what is worth it and take stock along the way
    Happy Birthday to all the March babies and have fun time with the girls on spa day - sounds like a blast.

    Just remember that even if you DO gain a pound or two, as long as you are eating reasonably it will be gone in a day or two. No way are you going to be overeating enough to TRULY gain!!
