OK, HUGE confession coming.
Last night after Lost I had a snack attack. It didn’t end at the popcorn. I grabbed the box of Triscuits AND, ya ready? The husbands DARN Swedish Fish! I didn’t pig out to the point overstuffed-ness but they were definitely an unnecessary splurge especially when I was low on weekly points.
Then today started off good and I did it again. It’s that gosh darn cycle thing again.
I’m not going to stew about it.
There were two comments on Vickie’s blog that got my attention today. Vickie has been discussing her views on the maintenance and weight loss goals.
The doctor I saw the other day said maintenance is, in a way, almost harder than the loss phase as people think the are done, when actually, as she put it, it’s the beginning.
What I really think is that "goal" is not a number…it’s a state of mind. And you, my friend, are both there and getting there (if that makes sense). To me, you are THERE because I just don’t think it’s as simple as a number or a day…it’s being where you want to be in life and realizing that there is no one place…every day we change and things are different.
Being a maintainer, these two points say it all.
I met with the personal trainer today! It was AWESOME! I love working out with someone and believe me, she worked me hard! I learned some really cool moves on the exercise ball. Next week she is going to set me up on an upper and lower body free weight routine and then I’m on my way! Those who said it I would love, you were totally right!
I also squeezed in a video today making one of my favorite quick spaghetti squash recipes.
Alright, that’s it. Here’s the end of week blow out. I’m going to be cleaning house this weekend, not sure how active I’ll be online.

Notes: Now that I look at it, it really wasn’t a blow out. I think I just feel that way becuase I’m bloated and blah. You know, that cycle thing. (SEE that’s why you never just throw the day away. It’s may not be as bad you think.
