I HOME!!! YAY!
The wedding was fun but it’s nice to get back to normalcy. I do have to say, all the dancing practice with the toddler paid off. He was the hit of the dance floor!
As for my eating…
bleh, Bleh and BLEH!
I did horrible. I noticed something this weekend. When I’m busy and out of my element I tend to eat just because food is there not because I’m hungry. (well duh) But to make it worse if I do get hungry I make bad choices. For example at the reception cocktail hour there was a fruit and veggie plate, a cheese plate and a host of fried appetizers. What did I eat? You guessed it, everything but the fruit and veggies. I was in that out of body, self-denial, it’s only the weekend special event mode. You know, the “It’s there, I’m hungry so I might as well treat myself” mode. I also hit the brownies REALLY hard. But man they were good!
That’s a big however. (did you notice) ;~)
I DID go to the hotel gym the morning of the weekend. I know I didn’t work out enough to counter act the enormous amounts of food I consumed but I did it and I’m counting that as a big Non Scale Victory (NSV). I also hit the gym tonight and did 30 minutes on the bike.
So I’m ahead of the game on workouts but I need to get my diet back under control. To help, I made a huge pot of veggie chili similar to Vegetarian Chili over Spaghetti Squash (I’ll post an updated recipe soon). This way I have a bunch of healthy lunches for my long days at work. Preparation and planning is key, so I also stocked up on healthy snacks from the grocery store.
I’m ready to face this week! You with me?
