"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp,
Or what's a heaven for?"
-- Robert Browning

Happy Monday Everyone!

Well, I have to report, I had my first (in a VERY long time!), successful weekend OP! Now granted, I might have eaten a bit more than necessary, but it was too much of vegetables, so I think it was alright! Now yesterday I did get into a bit of cake frosting as I was frosting a cake for the boyfriend, but it was licking the knife while frosting, not eating the frosting with a spoon, and I counted it, so we're good!

Today has been a good day OP so far. There were doughnuts in the lunchroom this morning, but I completely avoided them. And I should have no problem meeting all my 8 GHG's today! Plus I'm going to get a short run tonight, and do my crunches and pushups, so I'll be getting my exercise in.

I'm still feeling rather bloated, but better than last week.

Another goal this week is to not eat after 8 at night. Which is going to be kinda hard to do, because alot of the time I don't get sat down with dinner made until later than that! But I'll try. I think I will allow myself a small snack, such as a piece of fruit or something after that but that's it.

Also another goal for this week is to try to stay away from the processed food as much as possible, honestly, I haven't been that bad, but it's easy to get away from whole foods and start eating more popcorn, vitatops, and ice cream as opposed to fruit and veggies. So it's another goal this week, just eat snacks of fruit and veggies, and try to have the processed foods as more "treats", I think I've used up my treat allotment already this week, so I'll be sticking to fruit!

Other than that, things seem to be going good, perhaps seeing that number on the scale is what I needed to push my butt back into gear.

Anyways, I hope everyone had a great weekend with their Valentines, and have even better OP weeks!

Everyone makes mistakes and sorry to hear you're 10 lbs over your personal goal as I'm in the same boat as you. As well as eating dinner that late as well. I've been trying to cook around 5:30-6 but it' so hard. Just keep it up, otherwise you're doing great.
