Week 2's Wrap Up!

WOW, what an exhausting weekend. I can't believe that tomorrow is already Monday. Jay and I left yesterday morning about 10:30 a.m. heading to his parents for the night. We arrived there about 1:00, we only stopped for a quick bite to eat. Lunch is where my struggle started... The only place to eat was McDonald's, I was very good, I had a Happy Meal with only 4 chicken nuggets, fries and diet coke. When we arrived at Nana and Papa's we attuned a small birthday party for one of the nephews, yeah, I know what your thinking, but stop, I was good, AGAIN!!! I only had a small piece of cake AND I forfeited the chocolate ice cream. So, birthday party winds down about 4:30p.m. and family reunion kicks up about 6:00 p.m. Thanks to Nana for baked chicken, green beans, corn on the cob and a small piece of bread. I did splurge and have some dessert, it was a chocolate chip, vanilla wafer, pudding - yummy, yummy, yummy dessert. And get this the label said "sugar free" - HA that was my ticket. I know that sugar free doesn't always mean low cal., but hey I was at a family reunion with IN-LAW distant relatives - give a girl a break!!!! (Sugar-free chocolate chip vanilla wafer, pudding - yummy was the strongest thing I could find - trust me, we looked) So, anyway, I've digressed again, that was that for meals on Saturday. I'm thinking Sunday is going to be a breeze, until I see Nana getting out the breakfast fixin's - powder-sugar covered donuts, cinnamon-sugar covered donuts, fried apple pies (from a local N. Ga. apple orchard) and sticky buns... GREAT I'm doomed. We leave the reunion location and go to the house where were to sleep - fast forward to Sunday AM. Jay and I decided that we'd skip Nana's version of breakfast and we went to Waffle House (I know, your thinking NOT MUCH BETTER, well give me a minute to explain) I opted for 1 single waffle with a little bit of butter and some syrup. I'm at the Waffle House and did not have bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs OR grits. Does a girl get a pat on the back??!?!? So we finish breakfast and head over to the reunion were lunch is served at 11:45 - Hello, do they not realize that I just ate breakfast at 10??? SO, I skipped lunch - fired chicken tenders - Nana had no sympathy on my diet today. Anyway, we visited for a while and then left there at 1:30 and headed home (ah, home sweet home). Came home took a little nap, grabbed Hubby and headed out for dinner, where I had "Hawaiian Chicken" and a baked potato with butter and 2 very small sliced of bread. I have enough left overs to have lunch tomorrow, woo hoo.

OK, now that I've bored you with my weekend let me get down to business - in spite of my weekend with Nana's menu and Waffle House I still lost 2 pounds this week. YAY!!!!!

I think I'll stick with the same goals this week (they need some perfecting):
  • 48 ozs. of water a day;
  • gym 3 times and
  • 2 more pounds lost

Good Luck to all of you May Day Challenge girls for your Tuesday weigh in. I'll be checking up on you.

Yay! Way to go!!! I had to forgo the Grandma food on Saturday night and Sunday morning...it was rough! No fried fish or cinnamon rolls for me- just baked chicken and cheerios...I feel your pain. I didn't lose but I maintained and I think that's pretty good in light of the events!

Good job! it's all about life choices. With 3 kids McDonald's is sometimes our only choice so I get the kids meals too (don't like their salads). You're doing reat!
