A Good Weekend.. finally!

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Every weekend I go home part of me dreads it. Now, don't get me wrong I love seeing my family. The part I dread is eating because I love food just way too much. Anyhow, I felt last weekend did not go so hot by trying to limit myself. So.. I had a new plan today. I would write down what I eat and manually keep in track. It kept me focused and accountable. Just because I do not have access to internet should not give me an excuse to eat crazy. As my mom tells us girls, she doesn't force us to eat it. (She just makes it so darn tasty.. haha.)

For this weekend, I feel I did pretty good. I went for four days from Thursday to today, Sunday. I stayed within my calorie range and walked every day except Friday. On Friday, we went garage saleing and well.. I brought an amazing Rhubarb-Strawberry Pie that was sold by the church.. A-MA-ZING! emoticonI ate the majorly of the pie by myself. I told myself on Saturday that I was not going to have the last two pieces of pie and told my parents that they need to eat it.. well, so I don't. My mom ate the yummy pie.. Than, I felt lazy on Friday and did not go for a walk.. BUT I was walking a few feet away from the sales so we had to walk a few feet extra each time so that had to add up.

Now putting my calorie range and walking aside.. I guess my mom was impressed that I was eating more vegetables. I have never been too keen on them. emoticon I am hoping one day that I can spark my whole family. Than, one of the neighbors who I babysit on a regular basis inquired about my weight loss.. and told me that she was proud of me. It felt really good to hear that.. like basking in sun! emoticon

My next weigh in is on Sunday which is after a weekend at home. Even through I did pretty good this past weekend, I know it is a learning curve.. so I am weighing in two days early on Friday! I am hoping I can start June off right! emoticon

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.. and is ready for the week. Now I am off to walk 5 miles.. must get to 30 miles this week or my sister will win. I must win, hehe! emoticon

    Excellent news my friend. Maybe you can convince you Mom that if she really loves all of you (and I'm sure she does) she'll join forces with you and your sister and try some of the recipes on Spark when you all come visiting. Then making them and trying them will be that much more fun. Have a great evening
