A Busy Weekend!

Sorry I didn't post at all this weekend, it was so incredibly busy! Which is great.

Friday night, Scott came over and we watched a movie til late. Nothing spectacular, but it was fun, and he's such a "farm boy" he's not seen like any movies, so anything I pick is new to him. He seems to enjoy the funny ones, so we watched Old School and he thought it was pretty good.

Saturday morning I got up and weighed in. Not good. I was expected a gain this week for two reasons, one, I showed such a loss last weekend, and I always gain after a big loss. And two, I was not OP last weekend, so I was expecting a bit of a gain from that. Well, I gained 3.6 pounds. Now, I know I couldn't have possible eaten enough to gain all that, so I'm just not going to sweat it, and pray for a good loss next week. I'm feeling good, and that's all that matters! It did put me back over the 150 mark, which would technically raise my points up for 21 back to 22. But I think I am just going to leave them at 21.

Saturday during the day I worked outside around the house, and did some running around, I don't think I sat down all day. And Saturday Night I went to a bonfire that Scott had out at his place, which was fun.

Sunday, I got up early (after being out late, ugh!) and went to church with my parents. Then I came home, planted a tree, and then went over to my parents. Helped my dad cook chicken for lunch, and then helped my mom plant the perennials my brothers and I got her for Mother's Day. Also helped her transplant a few other ones, and I actually took some of the lily we transplanted home with me. I also took a section of trumpet vine that I am going to see if I can get going at my house. So then I went home, and planted everything that I got from her. And my neighbor brought over a few baby hostas for me too, so I planted those. Needless to say, I don't think I even came in the house til after 730 or 8, and didn't even sit down til after that, I'm whooped. Had to come back to work to rest ;)

As far as WW's goes, I had a good weekend. Yesterday for lunch I actually marinated about 13 pounds of chicken for my family, and helped my dad cook it all. And they loved it! They've never had real good marinated chicken, and it was healthy for me, so that was great. I did eat alot of pineapple, and I only counted a point for it. You know why? One, I didn't count any activity points for yesterday, even though I was on my feet all day, digging, planting, etc. Also, it was totally the best choice I could've made. My parents house is full of bad food chips, nuts, cakes, cookies, I made the best choice possible, so I won't penalize myself for that. No one got fat eating fruits and veggies right?

Other than that, it looks to be another busy busy week, and I'm pushing for a great weigh in this week! The WOMAN Challenge started yesterday, but I just didn't get out for a walk, I'm going to tonight though!

Alright have a healthy and happy day everyone! I'm going to try to post some new recipes later in the week!

Sounds like you had a fantastic weekend! And you did a great job on WW too! You're absolutely right, no one got fat eating fruits and veggies so munch away!
Glad to hear you had a nice weekend with Scott!
Keep it up!

I totally agree with the "mind games" related to eating fruit...if I had to count 2 or 3 points for a big serving of fruit, I might convince myself that I might as well have a small serving of chips instead...and we all know where that leads!

13 pounds of chicken? WOW, I thought I was the only one who cooked that much at a time. Then again that would just be for dh and my kids, though!

Glad you had a great OP weekend. I'm doing the woman challenge, too. Another way to get me motivated to move more. What is your weekly goal? Are you on a team or doing it alone?

Old School is so funny! I've been having a movie marathon since finals.

I am right there with you on the gain and not being OP. It's a new week right? Way to get back OP!! :)
