Down but not Out!!
This week's weigh-in was great - DOWN 2.2 lbs for a total of 4.8 this challenge. The extra points for water and exercise were a great motivator for me. Thursday I had to take the day off, because I spent the day in New Hampshire with our school kids at the New England Regional Fine Arts Competition. Our kids did great - my two bell choirs came in first and second, our choir came in first and my six girl ensemble also came in first. I was proud of our kids. Needless to say, the only exercise I got that day was running from one performance to another and directing my bell choirs. Then on the way home, we stopped at Chick Fil-A (we don't have them in CT, so this is a treat for us) and I ate the chicken sandwich and waffle fries and drank the coke (eat your heart out, Alice!). I figured I would take full advantage of the day off . . . Because of the change in my routine, I also didn't drink as much water as I had been, and I found myself VERY thirsty all day. So my one day off is over, and I am back to exercising, drinking, and eating sensibly. I want the scale to get back to where it was on Wednesday morning. Last night I was doing my grocery shopping, and the temptation to buy the goldfish and jelly beans was great . . . I went shopping BEFORE I ate supper instead of after. I had picked up the goldfish and scanned them but before they got in my bag, I removed them and unscanned them and left them on the shelf. I did the same with the jelly beans. THAT is a tremendous accomplishment for me. Someone must have been praying.
