Lost another whole weekend!

Monday, September 10, 2012

I just don't know what to do with my weekends! Since DD has gotten older and is doing her own thing, I have really been trying to focus on my social life. Getting out more, more Q time with friends, more activities (including some local Spark things!). It's too easy for me to be introverted and disengaged from society and I need to work on the inner loner in me, come out of my shell after 46 years! And I know when I do, I have a much more fulfilling life and better life experiences.

That said, I think the only way I can stay on the eating track is to stay sequestered in my home and not go out or do anything all weekend long!

I was losing weight again. Just a few pounds, but I was encouraged for the past couple of weeks........Then this weekend, it all went to pot!

Friday I thought I did OK. I did have some frozen yogurt in the afternoon, but I put it on my food log and then had a very light dinner. Still ended up with 80% carbs for the day-not good!

Saturday I did go to Zumba so started the day off right! Then had lunch with a friend, had fish & chips........then went to the Sausage Fest at St. Joseph's, yeah, had some sausage, what else are you gonna do at the Sausage Fest!.........then went to a poker game at another friend's house, nibbled a few snackies and drank 1/2 a bottle of Bailey's-not bragging, just saying, do you know how many calories are in Bailey's?!!! Good grief Charlie Brown! emoticon I did take 2nd place out of 13 at the poker game, so woohoo there!

Sunday had brunch with some friends who were in town. Haven't seen this couple since they moved to the Phoenix area earlier this year. Really great to see them. Brunch consisted of a ham & cheese omelet with sourdough toast. I didn't eat the hash browns so if there's anything good I can say about my horrible eating this weekend, that's about it! Had some teriyaki chicken and rice for dinner so my carb/fat/protein ratio was OK, but I had no fruits or veggies and was a bit over total calories for Sunday and no exercise.

Did NOT weigh in this morning and will not do so again until next Monday morning...........I just don't even want to know!

So, what to do on weekends, eh, what to do? I guess I better figure it out if I want to get back on track! emoticon

    Oh, yeah ... Bailey's is good ... and a LOT of mostly empty calories. I've got a bottle I haven't actually touched in over a year because of a combination of not really wanting a drink and not wanting to use my extra calories on that instead of sweets.

    Ideally you'll want to find a solution that doesn't make you feel like you have to hide away at home. I know when I visit with my kids, I'm having to gradually adjust my choices eating out to things that provide more fruits / veggies and more often than not get a box to go, leaving at least half of what I'm served. Opting not to eat the hash browns is a good start. Now that you know the damage the Bailey's can do, you might opt for just one glass / shot rather than half a bottle. Just use it as a learning experience in how to make eating reasonably a part of living.
