Ahhh...the weekend. A time of relaxation, a chance to sleep in, and just have a nice time. And for me, to slip completely off my healthy eating habits. Ugh. Friday was fine until we went out to dinner and had the appetizer and two beers. I had a light beer, which is good, but hubby wanted an appetizer, so we got one. :-( Ate half a quesadilla and then half the margharita pizza I ordered. The pizza was really good, for the record.
Saturday, I actually did well. Had my great run Sat. morning and then a breakfast of donuts. Then we grabbed dinner at Isaac's as we were running errands Sat. afternoon/evening. When all was said and done, I was on points for Sat.
Sunday was a disaster! It always is when I'm completely out of my comfort zone. When I have to make decisions on the fly, I don't do so hot. We went to the Philadelphia Eagles game in Philly and ate out all day. Ugh. Had a bagel with a delicious spinach and artichoke cheese spread for breakfast and a beer. After the game, grabbed some bread and more of the cheese spread. On the way home, stopped at WaWa (ahhhh....WaWa....) and had a bag of TGIFriday's Mozzerella Sticks (I didn't eat the whole bag. That's got to count for something, right???) with a cup of pre-made iced coffee. Now, in my defense, the last time I got iced coffee from WaWa, it was just coffee and I added my own milk and sugar. This time it was mixed and I didn't know that until AFTER I poured my cup. When we got home, we reheated our pizza from Friday and we were done. Ugh. But I KNOW the damage was done as well. Weekends suck. :-(
I do have a plan for the week. Hopefully the plan will help me get back on track. I have given up sweets until Friday. No cookies, pie, cake, brownies, candy, etc. I snack too much lately and I decided I need to cut back. So, for now, no more sweets. It may continue until vacation, but right now it's til Friady.
I am so trying to consume more of my points during the day and leave less points after dinner. I generally eat very little during the day so I can make sure I have enough points at dinner for dinner and dessert. So, today, I am working on eating more during the day, so I have less points for snacks at night.
And third, I'm trying to work in more fruits and veggies again. I think I did really well when I was concentrating on them more than lately, so I'm working on upping my consumption. If I eat fruits and veggies, I get more food and better filling foods. Right now, as I type, applesauce is being made in my crock pot. A nice after dinner dessert. :-)
Those are my goals for the week. Hopefully they will help make a dent in my freaking 30 pound weight-loss goal!
