I was 224.7 earlier this week - have my period today - oh just weighed myself - coming in at 228 - I love bloating.  Despite the changes in my personal life (career front) I've stayed rather focused over the past few weeks. 
I've been working like a dog outside ... and even going to the gym.

Worries over the weekend

I started writing this post on Friday, I thought it would be a good idea to reflect on my next three days and isolate what am I worried about.  I have a few things that pop up immediately.  Tonight we are going to dinner with Lynn and Janet, we typically get a Fish Fry - 14 points - alone - can I balance the rest of the meal? More specifically, how will I balance the rest of the meal, it's not a question of can I, more how will I, it has to be a non-negotiable !  What else tempts me... beer, wine, cheesecake, rolls, mmmmmm.... will I even enjoy my time out or will I obsess obsess obsess? 

What will be an effective way to handle extra calories/points eaten...what are my choices... go into the slump? or make a choice to burn it off - I have to be willing to let myself be, but be willing to renew my energy and not feel that absolute shame. 
In addition, my friends shower is this weekend, I have the same question ... what will the food options be, how will I prepare myself?

Oh, and Nephew Birthday party is this weekend, I have the same question.... what will we eat ... pizza? wings? cake? I must take that proactive approach and plan for success ....

Weighed in at 229.4

Staying on Track over the weekend .. Friday Saturday and Sunday Morning at 226.4

Friday I had really managed my caloric intake all day, thinking about what I was going to have for dinner, it was Janet's birthday and I knew we were going out to dinner at Union Hill for a fish fry.  I had scheduled into my day a 14 point fish fry and veggies veggies veggies - a few glasses of wine and beer.  I ordered a salad for dinner and another salad with my dinner - I just kept eating salad - lol

When we are with them, we can be soooo naughty, but I made out pretty well I was so disappointed yesterday, we were going to go to a chicken barbecue, and didn't make it there till 5:30 - bummer, it was all gone :(  - so we had to go with Pizza, not that I'm devastated from having to eat pizza, but I was certainly trying to do my best to stay on track - now here is the good news, I'm not off track - I feel focused and committed - frustrated that when other circumstances are not within my control it's a challenge to plan effectively. 

Saturday, however was the real challenge, it was a day I had clearly planned.  We were going to go to a chicken barbecue, but unfortunately, they were all out by the time we go there - so we had to order Pizza.  It was completely delicious :) but I think today I have to thoughtfully plan, I'm going to two events with out having any food within my control and so I think I really really need to plan. 
Ok - i'm off to do my planning :)
