"Desire, Ask, Believe,Receive"
~Stella Mann

Quick post today! I am running behind.

First a little bit of a gripe. Tonight is rehearsal dinner for my brothers wedding on Friday. Well, when we were planning the menu for said dinner, my mom and I picked out the entrees that would be served. Well after much much bitching on her part, she let me put a healthy thing or two on the menu (seriously, she was being terrible about it). So today I asked to see the menu, really so I could plan what I was going to eat, and the only healthy thing on the menu is Salmon. Which I like fish, but I am not a Salmon fan. So what am I going to get stuck eating? Something I don't like. I'm not happy about it. There was suppose to be like a Linguine Marinara or something similar on the menu, which was what I was planning to have, but she switched it to Alfredo...ugh. Sorry for griping.

I've been OP since my little incident earlier in the week. I'm kicking this cold..FINALLY, after like 2 weeks. I managed to get to the gym last night, even though I totally could've used the excuse of being way too busy! So thats a bit of a NSV in itself!

I'm planning on getting to the gym again either tomorrow night or Friday morning. I am thinking probably Friday morning, since I have the day of work for wedding stuff, and it would give me a few extra points to play with at the wedding reception.

My plan for both the dinner tonight, and the reception on Friday night is the same as it has been for other events lately, I can eat anything on the veggie tray for free (minus dip of course!), and I will choose the best choices possible. I'm sure at the reception they will have chicken or something of the sorts. Should be able to handle it no problemo. Kathy is my wedding buddy for this weekend. We will keep each other on plan!

We got about 6 inches of fresh snow here overnight, gotta love March snow storms! The roads were a disaster this morning, luckily it has cleared up, the sun is shining, and the roads and everything have melted off, so it's not messy....just pretty ;)

Anyways, I gotta finish up some stuff around here, but I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

I HATE it when I'm feeling good but I have to go somewhere and there aren't any healthy choices. Good luck tonight and way to go on the gym last night!!!

sorry to hear about the food fiasco but i'm sure come friday, it will be the last thing on your mind... have fun at the wedding and post some pics! :o)

I just have to say that I think it was stinking unfair to have your healthy choice taken away from you like that! But life goes on!

I will definitely keep in mind this weekend that I have a friend going through the same challenge that I am! I am not alone...and that helps!

That stinks! Maybe there will be some great steamed veggies with that salmon?

Sucks about that rehearsal supper. Maybe sneak in a walk or gym time to earn some more AP and you can have a small portion of something "bad".
