What a weekend!!

Had a great weekend!  Went to the Boston Flower Show then out to a ritzy Italian restaurant on Saturday.  Ate like there was no tommorow...LOL.  It was my birthday!!! Had BD cake too.  Saturday night I went to a comedy show with family and friends and had a few snacks there.  Sunday I went to a Hockey game and had really great seats.  3 rows behind the goalie's net. Talk about being in the action!!  

 Back on track now but all that food was really really good. 

I got a dance game for my Xbox360/Kinect.  Loved playing the dance game so much at my sister's house last week that I had to go out and get my own to play at home.  It was my BD gift to me!!   I love it!!!  Some of the moves are hard to keep up with but with a little practice I think I will be ok.  The time sure flys when you are doing it.  Before you know it you are grooving and sweating to the beat. 
Gotta get to bed now.  Not going to W/W tomorrow until I get myself under control.  I gained a couple lbs this weekend with all the indulgences.  No regrets though...I am back in control now and know what I have to do the rest of the week....eat smart and get lot's of exercise!!!
Here's to a great week for us all!!!

Catching up

Haven't posted much this week.  I had alot of overtime at work and just didn't find time to get on here.  I work 2nd shift so overtime for me is till 2 or 3 in the morning.  I did  alot of sleeping trying to make up for it.  It is not as easy to do overtime in my 50s as it was in my 30s but the money was hard to pass up. Needless to say I didn't do alot of exercise either.
  I had problems with binges this week also.  I guess working the overtime wore me down and when I got home...I started in.   I just did it because I was tired and hungry and was feeling like I needed that comfort at the time.  I didn't gain any weight though!
So now that I made my confession.  I am gonna try really hard next week to get through the overtime w/o sabotaging my weight loss efforts. 
Going over to my sister's house this afternoon to try out a dancing game she has for her Wii.  She said is is a great workout.  Sounds like fun to me!!  Have a great weekend everone!!!

Weigh in results.

I went to my W/W meeting yesterday.  I skipped going last week... figured I would save some bucks.  Anyway I lost 2 lbs.  I made my 10% and got my key ring as a reward!  I have now lost 19.2 lbs.  Averaging about one lb. a week as I have been going for 19 weeks.  I guess when they said you would average 1-2 lbs lost per week they weren't kidding.  I guess I'm average. 

Went for a beautiful walk outside yesterday.  The sky couldn't have been bluer and the sun felt so good on my face.  It was around 35 degrees and things were melting.  Spring is definately in the air!!  Can't wait to ride my bike.
Worked 2 hours of overtime tonight.   It is 2:34 AM as I write this. Tired now....going to bed!!

"Super Size Me"

Just finished watching "Super Size Me". It's a must see movie/documetary for all of us weight conscience people. And if you aren't weight conscience this will certainly nudge you in that direction.  I know it is an old movie but it was the first time I got to see it.  If you haven't seen it... check it out!  It sure helped to confirm my ideas about how bad fast food can be!!!  It's really bad!!!!!  Deadly!!!
When you ask them to "super size me"....that's exactly what you are doing!!!  These places don't care how unhealthy the food is, it's all about the almighty buck!   We people need to stop buying into their greed!!!  There has got to be better choices out there....find it!!

I figured out why I'm fat!!!

I figured out why I'm fat! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says "For extra volume and body". I'm going to start using "Dawn" dish soap. It says" Dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove". ;-) LOL!!!   (Someone posted this on Facebook and I couldn't resist...I just had to share!!!)

End of slump!!!

I have been in a slump the past 3 days with no formal exercise and lot's of snacking.  Just needed a break from all the planning, writing down everything and feeling the pressure to exercise everyday.  I didn't even go to my W/W meeting yesterday.  Had a quarterly meeting yesterday at work and when it was done they gave us all a bag of Willy Wonka chocolate candies.  I don't know what that was all about because I work for an electronics company that has nothing to do with the food industry.  I know I shouldn't have taken the bag but I was thinking I would bring it home for the kids.  I decided to taste one and it was soooo good that I brought a couple to both of my breaks and ended up having 4 pieces.  Then on the way home I had a "few" more.  When I got home I figured out the points and for 4 pieces (the serving size) was 6 points.  OMG!!!  Needless to say I have put them out of sight and got it out of my system.   Feeling really guilty I sat down to my computer and started reading everyone's blogs.  I got all motivated again and have a short term goal for the month.  I want to lose 9 lbs this month...preferably by the 19th for my BD!  It will be hard and if I get only half way there I will be happy but 9 is my goal!!! 
Thanks to all you bloggers who helped me get my "umph" back!!!
Moving forward....off to exercise!!  Have a great day everyone!!!

No Regrets!!

Celebrated my son's 13th birthday this weekend and had a piece of birthday cake....alright I had 2 pieces...my bad!! It was sooooo good and I don't regret it at all (well maybe the 2nd piece..tee hee hee)  Oh well I'm only human...LOL. 
Back on plan today and the rest of the week.  No more birthdays in sight till the 19th and I will be having a piece of that cake as well cause it is my birthday!!  You only live once and what is life without a piece of BD cake once in a while.  NO REGRETS!!
