The Easter Wrap Up

"You can take from every experience what it has to offer you.
And you cannot be defeated if you keep just taking
one breath followed by another"
~ Oprah

So, first lets talking about weigh in. It went well. Better than I was expecting actually since TOM hadn't arrived yet. I lost 1.6 pounds. I was very happy with that.

Now onto Easter. What can I say....It could've been could've been a whole lot worse.

The started of fabulous. I hit the gym, had my oatmeal and few pickings around the house, nothing drastic. And I went to the store and I had two easter candies I wanted, and I bought one of each, a peanut butter egg, and a cadbury creme egg. I cut 1/3 off the PB egg, and ate the 1/3 in three bites...yum. Did the same later with the creme egg...the 2/3 I didn't eat when down the food disposal.

Dinner went well, i took small portions of everything. But I did go back for seconds of this jello stuff I made, a pineapple bake I made...and another piece of bread. Still no biggie, even seconds were small portions.

During cleanup I did pick a little, but nothing terrible. Now for dessert I had a brownie and a cream puff with ice cream.

Still like I said, not bad. I mean altogether, i could've avoided seconds, could've picked one dessert, but overall I think I did ok. How did everyone else's easter go?

I'm going to try to get to the gym and extra time this week, I know I will probably see a small gain this week, but hey, it's life, gotta live it right?

Ok, back to work, we're crazy busy, but wanted to report on my easter and weigh in! Hope you all had a great one!

Congrats on your great weigh-in!

It sounds like you did really well on Easter - good job.

Mine was fine ... could have been better, could have been worse. No sweets or bread, but I had the choice between BBQ chicken or ribs and I didn't quite have the self control I needed ... I went for all of the above.

Re your comment - I basically use whatever protein powder I think is a good deal. I just finished off the Walmart Equate brand stuff in vanilla and it wasn't great so I'll try something else this next time. It's so expensive so that's my main concern, since just any more protein than I'm gettin is a bonus. I try and keep the calories low if I can too. Do you use protein powder?

WOW!! I can't evemn believe you put the othe rpart of the cream egg in the garbage...seriously Kate this is the most amazing story I've heard about anyones will power. YOU ROCK!
WOW again!!

Steph said...

WOW - way to go. You work so hard so don't discount it. You deserve every, reading your post always inspires me to plan plan plan. I've gotten really lazy about cooking WW friendly for the family. I myself eat mostly veggies, egg whites, cottage cheese but I've gotten really bad about not cooking healthy for them. I have to get back on track for THEIR health.

So way to go - you rock!! How is the "single" life?? LOL
