Finally! Relief. It's been really really dry around here now for about the last month, and needless to say, we've needed rain. Well as I speak it's raining, which is great news for my garden, my lawn and the farmers in the neighborhood. Plus, up until about 1 hour ago, it was 88 and humid outside, now my computer says its 76, much needed.
I think I've decided I am going to head up north to my parents cottage this weekend. Now this is the first time I've done this since I started on Weight Watchers in January (snow just wasn't good this year!), so I've been thinking about how I was going to tackle the food situation. Now my mom, being the sweet lady she is, has always had a ready supply of junk food at both houses (here and up north), which is great for those who want to eat that junk, not so great for me who wants to avoid it. So I decided to basically pack two days worth of snacks and take them with me. I know it's rude to go to someone's house, and bring a full cooler of your own stuff, but I don't want to go off program for two days and see a gain, not going to happen.
So I will leave Friday Night after work, and I have enough point-friendly snacks to fill the rest of my day and then Saturday I have all my snacks, and my lunch planned, dinner will be the only thing I will eat what they are eating (which will probably be an Italian restaurant in town). I left 12 points for dinner that night, figuring that a spaghetti and marinara dish cannot be more than that. I'm just going to have to wing dinner, but I think I will be ok. Then I got Breakfast, Snacks and Lunch for Sunday, and I'll be home by dinner. So hopefully all will be good :)
Other than that, the scale is still holding steady (although not breaking the 150 mark...grr), but past my 10% mark once again, yay! Hopefully it stays happy for Friday's Official Weigh In.
Well that's it for the updates today, hopefully everyone is having a great and healthy day.
A Quote to think about:
"The life that conquers is the life that moves with a steady
resolution and persistence toward a predetermined goal. Those who
succeed are those who have thoroughly learned the immense importance
of plan in life, and the tragic brevity of time."
