Last week was a good week, I was back at work and in my regular routine. I have a friend at work that is also doing Weight Watchers and it helps so much to be doing this with other people. On Saturday I weighed in and lost 2.6 pounds! YAY! They gave me a sticker for losing my first 5 pounds and now I am just like my five-year-old, working each day for another sticker. My Aunt Jackie (weight loss buddy) also lost more than 2 pounds last week. So proud of her!!
I was super nervous about this weight in because Friday was such a hard day for me. I am a support person for our event team that plans special events for our agency. This means that when they are stressed about an upcoming event, I am stressed as well. We have an event tonight (see my worries about this below), and Friday was a very busy day for me. Then, we had a going away party at work and there was pizza, cake and other yummy stuff. I made it through the actual party pretty well, mostly salad, fruit and one small piece of cheese only pizza. No cake, no pie, no bad stuff. Then I went into the kitchen to refill my water cup and there it was, a huge, chocolate cake. I tried to ignore it. I tried just smelling it. But in the end it won out and I had a bite, okay it was a BIG bite that most people might call a "small" piece. After I ate the cake, that tasted divine, I did not feel any better, in fact I felt pretty bad about my choice. Lesson Learned!
My worries this week include, but are not limited to, a baby shower I went to on Saturday. Again, I had cake, but this cake I had already planned for in my weekly points. The event tonight at a very nice steakhouse that has wonderful food and most of the food for tonight is appetizers, never low in calories. I am hoping I will be so busy I will not have time to each much, but let's face it, I will manage my time well enough to find a few moments to eat. One comforting thought is, my co-worker has already asked me to walk each day with her and that is great, it is easier for me if someone else is going too. I am not too motivated to exercise right now but if I tell someone I will go with them, because I don't want to let them down. Whatever gets me moving is alright with me!
Happy Monday and have a great week!
