I'm back. It was a very busy and fun weekend for my family and I, so I just didn't get to my blog. Friday was our homeschool Valentine/skating party, which was a load of fun especially since my husband skated. It's always a hoot when he falls on his butt....although he only did that one time. It was still totally worth watching though. lol It also snowed later that day, which is a big deal here in the south b/c we are so totally unprepared for snow. When it snows here everyone always buys out the milk, bread, and eggs. It's ridiculous....and it especially sucked b/c I needed food in my house. So, we rushed home from the party, I had to plan my grocery list in a hurry and I wasn't able to plan well since I didn't have much time. I went to Aldi and usually Aldi has a pretty good selection, but I've never been able to buy everything from there. I like to buy my toiletries, cereal, and snacks from Wal-Mart b/c the quality is better and Aldi just doesn't have some of my namebrand stuff I like. So, I went to Aldi and the store was ransacked. Just about the time I came to this realization, it was snowing hard outside. So, I had to buy cereal I normally wouldn't eat (generic frosted Min wheats...b/c it's seriously the only healthy cereal they have besides bran flakes which I just can stomach very well) and a few other things I wasn't crazy about. I couldn't get to Wal-mart b/c the roads were already getting slushy. So, I went home. Saturday the snow melted on the roads so we decided to commence with our son's b-day party (he turned 3 on V-day), and my mom took the kids for the night so hubby and I could go on a date (which we have not had in a year). The party went well, but I did not plan well for the cake that would be returning home with us. I tried to give a lot of it away and no one would take any. lol I wanted to take enough home so the kids could have some again, but instead we ended up with all of it and needless to say, I had too much cake. I probably should have thrown all of it away in hindsight.Then there was a death in my husband's family (another Huntington's death) so I've kind of been depressed thinking about my husband possibly having it...but I'm better now. Well, Monday I was able to get back to my normal eating and I decided to weigh myself b/c I want to stay real throughout this process....and not pretend that I didn't oversplurge. I was pleasantly surprised that the scales weighed me in the same weight. So, that means my meds are working and maybe I didn't do as badly as I've done in the past. I have found that since I've been dieting this go round, that I do so much better when I plan. I did NOT plan Saturday and Sunday at all and of course I lost control. I'm ok though....lesson learned. I was beginning to feel sorry for myself this weekend and thought to myself, "Get a hold of yourself....don't do the whole "woe is me" crap....you made a bad decision...now move along". I snapped out of my sugar induced funk and now I'm back on track. So here's Monday and Tuesday. I'm gonna do my best to remember what I ate Monday...I really wish I had blogged what I ate over the weekend b/c now I can't remember everything (I just remember cake).
Monday: breakfast- 1c. mini wheat cereal, 1c. milk
lunch: whole wheat pita w/ sliced chicken breast, 2 slices cheddar, carrot sticks, grapes
snack: a small handful of cashews (I think)
Dinner: beef, broccoli, red bell pepper stirfry, 1/2c. brown rice, salad (butter lettuce, cranberries, sprinkle of cheese, 2tbsp. Newman's Own dressing)
Tuesday: Breakfast- 1c. mini wheat cereal, 1c.milk, 1 small banana
Lunch- Leftover stirfry from night before (there wasn't much left...I think around 3/4c. in all w/ the rice), salad (butter lettuce, cranberries, sprinkle of cheese, 1tbsp. Newman's Own dressing)
Dinner: ginger teriyaki chicken breast, mixed veggies, 1/2c.potato salad (I took my potatoes out of the pot so I could measure how much mayo I'd use which was 2tbsp. olive oil light mayo)
I have not had ANY snacks after dinner time for two days now, so I'm happy about that. :) Thanks POD for checking up on me....you always make me laugh and I absolutely love the firm and honest accountability you give me. Actually I love all the accountability I get from all of you...it makes all the difference. :) Hope you guys had a great V-day weekend too.
