crazy week

It's been a crazy couple of weeks. The kids have been home on Spring Break this week. And true to Colorado weather, the weather was in the 70's on Sunday and we got about 8 inches of snow yesterday. Today the sun is out but we are still covered in snow. It should be gone this weekend...just in time for the kids to go back to school again on Monday.

On the WW front, I had a great weigh in on Tuesday. I was down 2.6...which leaves me .2 from a 25 pound loss. I really can't believe that. In some ways WW has been such an easy thing to follow. It seems that the weight has just "fallen" off. Then there are days like yesterday. On my way home from work I just wanted something spicy. So I grabbed a big grap of Doritos...I've done that before and managed to eat 1 serving then give the rest to Trey when he got home from school. This time I was talking to my mom on the phone and I ate the whole bag! YIKES!

I could have salvaged that...really I could. I could do a big salad for dinner and call it a day. Did I do that? NOPE!

Aleena and Trey wanted to make popcorn in the afternoon. Killer for me. One piece just leads to more and more and more. Should have grabbed a piece of bubblegum before I started in on their popcorn.

Then there was dinner. I tried a new corn biscuit topped chili recipe. It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but after the Doritos and popcorn, I shouldn't have had anything.

So, we'll see how I manage this weekend. I've learned that with WW, a bad day is salvagable as long as it only a day. The next day needs to be filled with healthy choices and lots of water. And no more Doritos...

I love doritos and they are so tempting! Ive found that the 100 calorie bags work well because I have to open up a whole another bag so maybe that would work:)

Congrats on your loss thats fabulous!

Congrats on your loss!! That is so great!
You are SOO right about one day being salvagable. You aren't going to gain back 25 lbs in one day, so you just need to accept it and move on. Today is a new day!
Keep up the great work!

I've had this kind of day yesterday and today. Oh, temptations. For some reason I want to eat everything...even stuff I've never wanted!

Congrats on your loss!! I hope I can join the minus 25 club too! :)
