This weekend was kinda hit and miss for the diet. Friday night I went to the community launch party for Wonderland with some friends, we also went to dinner at the North Market. Dinner was a Greek salad, but since it mostly consisted of lettuce (with some feta cheese that I tried to avoid) it left me hungry then when I got home there were a couple small pieces of pizza to tempt me. On Sat we had friends over for the Grandview Art Hop, so I had a few drink and more than a few chips. But all was well when I weighed myself Sun morning; my weight had stayed the same. But for some reason on Sunday I was sitting around the house all day, watched Avatar (awesome movie!) and we finally finished the 7th season of Gilmore Girls (I got the whole series for my b-day in January and the kids and I have been watching it from the beginning, 155 episodes!) so it was a lazy kinda eating day, I did all right until the evening when I had pretzels and dip. So I made some bad choices over the weekend and I really didn’t feel my best after eating those items.
I did, however, create a very yummy smoothie combination this weekend: 1 orange (peeled) a few frozen blueberries, ½ frozen banana, 8 oz cran/water, flax meal, chia seeds, scoop whey protein powder and a squirt of flax oil. Very yummy indeed!
So today’s weigh in is: up .5 a pound. I feel like it was a wasted weekend, since I have a self imposed deadline of where I want to be when I leave for Seattle. But these days off do help remind me why I want to eat healthier. I really don’t feel great when I stray from eating this way. I was really dehydrated after drinking Sat. night and I just felt blah all day Sunday. So I’m reinvigorated to eat healthy and try to get some exercise in this very rainy weather!
