A Case of the Mondays

Good Morning Everyone!

This weekend was fantastic. It was gorgeous once again, and I got a lot accomplished, seen friends, just in general had a great weekend. Plus I had a good weigh in to boot, so that helped start things off in the right direction. But Saturday and Sunday I did not track points. I think I definitely could've eaten worse than I did, but it wasn't a good weekend weight watchers wise. I wouldn't be surprised if I see a gain this week, but at least I'm prepared for it, and when it's there, I know the reason.

It's amazing when I'm Off Weight Watchers for a weekend, or a day, or whatever, how my body craves good food and water again by the end of the day. Last Night, as I was cutting up the vegetables for my lunch, my body was just screaming for water and veggies. It's amazing to me, how used to good eating my body as gotten, which is great. But it truthfully just makes me realize how bad I was eating before, and what it was doing to my body. It's alright to do it once in awhile (this weekend won't kill me) but wow, I just don't want to let my body get used to eating like that again. I feel like crap today, and I know it's cause I ate crap over the weekend.

On another note. I used to have such problems with indigestion pre-WW's, and I always blamed it on the the fact that it was inherited (my grandmother gets it terrible!). Well since I've been on WW's I have not had one problem with indigestion, it's amazing what eating right, and eating correct portions can do for you. But one day back to eating not even as bad as I used to, it reared it's ugly head again, I don't miss it, not at all.

I had the date this weekend, and it went ok, I don't think the guy is really my type, and I don't think I will go out with him again. The date lasted about an hour, and we grabbed lunch. He really wasn't my type, and then on top of that, I felt like I was grasping for things to talk about. So needless to say, he's nice enough, I just don't think it's going to work out.

On a high note (I don't remember if I mentioned this or not), An ex of mine from about 8 months ago called out of the blue, and I went over to hang out with him yesterday. He really is such a great guy....and totally hot (and doesn't even know it! The best kind!). He's very sweet. I don't know if I will be lucky enough to get a second chance at something I blindly threw away, but I'll keep you guys posted.

I have about a 6 hour drive tonight, and it's gonna suck. One of my best friends in the world grandfather passed away over the weekend, and his viewing is tonight, in a city about 3 hours away. So I'm driving there to go the viewing, and then driving back. I can't physically take the whole day off work tomorrow for the funeral, so this is the only way to go about it. Plus, I'm pretty sure my ex is going to be at the funeral (she was his friend, and her and I got close during the 2.5 year we were together). So it's better this way. Just going to have to pack lots of snack, since my eating schedule will be all off. I'm a very scheduled person, I like routine, lol.

Alright well have a healthy and happy day everyone!

congrats on the good weigh-in but sorry to hear about your friend's grandfather... sucks losing someone but you're a good friend for driving 6 hours - she will appreciate that more than you know... :o)

I agree with Jodi, you're a great friend for doing all that driving, I'm sure she appreciates your support. Sorry to hear that your date wasn't all that great, but maybe it's a sign that it wasn't meant to be since your ex called in the same weekend... Good luck with the whole situation. Oh, and congrats on the weight loss!

Take care,

Sounds you are right back on the wagon after a rocky weekend so good for you.
Too bad the date didn't go well. I hate bad dates. But at least you have potential with the ex...sounds interesting, keep us posted. Us married folk have to live through you!
Be careful on your drive and have a healthy day!
