Sorry that I've been so sporadic lately. I get busy!
Yesterday started out as a great day. Even though my roommate and I did our little traditional stop at Bagel Mania to get our unhealthy toasted bagel with butter and a diet coke breakfast that we love, we also went to the gym and worked out hard...and ate salads in the afternoon. So I was feeling pretty good about things. I've been tracking all week and I've started to notice that I'll have a big point day, followed by a small point day. Of course it's only been a week, so it's hard to determine if this was just a coincidence that happened this week or if it's really a true pattern of my eating, but regardless, yesterday was set to be a small point day. And I was right on track with that. By 6 pm I'd had 17 points- well under my range and feeling confident and great. Then we went to a wedding reception for some of our friends. And things proceeded to get ugly.
The problem was that I got stressed about the bouquet toss (I HATE bouquet tosses) and ended up hiding in the kitchen with some wedding cake to avoid it. After that, I felt guilty...so the "what the hell I've already messed up" feeling settled in and I proceeded to have a few more treats...consisting of things like- chocolate dipped marshmallows, coconut something or other heaven, a little bit of oreo milkshake and some hot chocolate. After the reception was over (and I was SO thankful to be out of there)...some of our friends came down from LA and we ended up at the Harbor House...eating diner food at 1 am. I wanted someone to kill me. Instead I killed my diet with a short stack covered in butter and syrup.
This morning I woke up with a tire around my waist. I don't know how it got there over night, but it's there. UGH.
Anyway, here's a picture from the wedding reception last night with some of my great friends. I'm in the black, with the red skirt. It was before the bouquet toss, when I was still feeling cute and confident...with a piece of gum in my mouth and no desire for wedding treat hell. BTW, I got a new haircut too, as I'm sure you can see. :)
Trying to get there! I have dinner plans tonight with another foodie friend of mine who is getting married next month. She LOVES to cook- she owns a restaurant, and everything she makes is heaven. I always eat too much. She's making Baked Ziti and I'm terrified. Weigh in is looming on the horizon. Wish me luck-
