Another Monday!

Sometimes I literally have to come back to work to rest, and I think that is the case this week. I'm exhausted, but in a good way of course!

My weekend up north went great! The weather was gorgeous on Saturday, and the lake was perfect!

I left Friday morning about 945 for the north, and I got up there about 130. When I got there is was raining, but I was fine with that since we were having company up Friday night and Saturday, so my mom need help in the kitchen regardless. When I got up there, I was starving, and my mom had sandwich stuff, so I ate a sandwich. I was surprised at how gross I found real white bread (it was all they had). I don't remember not liking bread EVER, but I seriously thought it was gross, I love my light wheat bread now, haha. So I helped my mom in the kitchen, watched some tv and then they decided to do the Casino buffet in another town about 30 minutes from them.

I was nervous about going to a buffet, I hadn't been to one since being on WW's, but I think I did well. I had a little bit of everything. I wanted a perogie, so I got one, cut it in half, and left the other half for garbage. I did the same with everything else. I left there feeling satisfied, but not overly full, which was great. I know the food was high in sodium, and probably not the best, but I didn't go crazy, so that was good.

Saturday I spent all day out on the water, swimming, water skiing and tubing (for the first time in 5 years!), we had lunch which I controlled myself good too!

Needless to say the scale was up when I got home, but I had it down again this morning by about a pound, and I'm back in my "range". So I would say the weekend was a success! yay!

Suppose to be hot here this week, ugh! I think I will be opting to stay in on the couch and rest up, I'm exhausted!

Also yesterday I got a 30 minute Rollerblade in, and I managed to pick 2 quarts of raspberries and get my raspberry vinegar set up to do its thing for the next 3 or 4 weeks, so that was good.

Alright, I'm going to get back to work. I hope everyone is doing wonderful and having a healthy happy day!

Love your new look and what a good idea to make a change to reflect the fact you're maintaining now. Best wishes!

Sounds like you had such a great weekend! I'm sure you earned some APs from the water skiing tubing etc.! That stuff takes a tonne of energy!!
Good for you at the buffet!! I'm not sure I would have had the motivation to leave that half of pergoie for the garbage! Great NSV! Your willpower amazes me!
