I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since I last blogged. There has been so much going on since my last post.
Work has been crazy CRAZY! We’ve had a case fall apart on us, one settle, and there have been so many little post-its on my desk that I had to stop what I was doing and just get them done. I hate when that happens.
Last Saturday was my monthly stitching day. Thank goodness, because that’s the only time I’ve made for myself to stitch lately!
I stayed the night with Melissa and the two of us were joined by Darla that night at Downtown Disney‘s Rainforest Cafe to celebrate Melissa’s upcoming birthday. The next morning Melissa and I headed back to Downtown Disney and had chicory and beignets at the Jazz Kitchen. Oh calories, how I love you! Especially donut-y calories! I actually have chicory coffee at my house and drink it all the time. It’s been a very long time since I made beingets though.
Then of course, Monday was Valentine’s Day. Much to my surprise, especially since he never said a word beforehand, M called me at 4:30 asking me if we were going out to dinner that night to celebrate. I left it totally up to him where we were going and since we couldn’t get early enough reservations at his first choice we went to El Torito’s and split a carne asada platter. It was the perfect amount of goodiness for my Mexican food craving self (I swear I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner — in the same day!). My gallant knight also came sweeping in with a dozen long-stem red roses, purchased from my favorite little mom and pop corner flower stand.
This morning’s weigh in at home for the Power of One challenge at Sisterhood shows me up some more, but you know…I don’t care! Ok, I care, but I’m living with it. After last week’s near meltdown over being up one pound I had a long think with myself — and a good talking to from M. This is lifetime. There are going to be times when the scale is going to go up, I just have to not let it defeat me, and get right back into the swing of things immediately.
Tuesday I packed a very healthy and filling lunch.
Last night I made up a quickie broccoli and beef stir-fry. I winged it with some pre-cut sirloin for fajitas that I tossed in 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, added in some garlic powder, garlic pepper powder, kosher salt, ground ginger and “fried” it in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, I then poured in 1/2 cup of chicken broth, 3 tablespoons of soy sauce and while that was bubbling up I steamed up some broccoli, then tossed that in. It made 3 large servings. Well, it should have been 4 but M ate 3/4 of it!
Today, I packed the same healthy and filling lunch as yesterday and added in a banana and blueberries. Tonight it’s BFD (which we do a couple of times a week).
Is my official weigh in tomorrow at Weight Watchers going to show that scale going up? Probably. Am I going to freak out about it like I did last week? No. Am I going to be disappointed in myself. I’m going to try hard to not be, but I’m only human.
Good for you for not letting it get to you…Like hubby said sometimes we are gonna have weeks like that. Just lay off the mexican and it will probably come right off again (speaking tomyself as well as you!)
I had a great time over the weekend! I was up a bit on the scale today as well, but given it’s my birthday week, I’m OK with it. It was only 0.2, so I’m calling it a maintain. 🙂
You have no idea the service you have just done me by telling me I can get beignets at Disney!! We’ll be there in a couple weeks for my birthday, so I’ve put in my request for brunch there.
Good for you on having your think. =) You know that you are doing the best you can, so don’t sweat that pound (or whatever happens next). The whole point is to be more healthy, yes? =)
Hope you have a good meeting with good results but even if you don’t it’s a lifestyle not a quick fix and you can ride the ups and downs :-).
