I’m late posting my Weight Loss Wednesday post this week. Today was my husband’s birthday and so I spent this evening with my family and early this morning, I was busy writing reports for work and trying to get some of my Kroger match-ups done.
Last night, my husband decided he wanted to try the new Domino’s pizza. I hadn’t put anything in the crockpot that morning and didn’t feel like cooking when I got home, so I was more than happy to oblige. I figured that I could have will power. Unfortunately, I caved. I had been incredibly good for 26 straight days and for some reason that pizza was just sooo good (incidentally, I really didn’t notice anything different about the sauce, but the crust was good). I couldn’t help myself.
In the past, that would have been the start of the end for me. One excuse after another. I already bombed, so I might as well eat this, too. And then the next day I’d make excuses and the excuses went on and on for days and weeks and months.
But not this time. Today was a new day and I got up and got on my treadmill this morning and I didn’t touch the cheesecake that I made for my husband for his birthday even though cheesecake is my FAVORITE.
So, even though I had a bad day, I moved beyond it and I’m happy about that.
The question of the week on Mama Notes, who is hosting the Body After Baby Challenge, is “What is your Favorite Healthy Snack?” I have realized that having a good snack in the afternoon, either on the way home from work or right after I get home is a lifesaver for me and helps keep me on track. I think that is part of what went wrong last night.
Here are a few of my favorites:
*Applesauce (the small cups)
*Cantaloupe – LOVE it!
*Carrots – these fill me up and they are 0 Weight Watchers points!
*Cottage cheese (low fat) with fruit mixed in – it sounds gross, but it is really good!
*String cheese – the Sargento light cheese sticks are SO good and only 1 Weight Watchers point!
On a bright note, I lost 3.8 pounds at my Weight Watchers weigh-in this week!
