OK here we go again. I was up again this week. I went to my Weight Watchers meeting kinda expecting it so was I that surprised: No. This week my hubby and I celebrated our birthdays, our anniversary and his new job. How do we celebrate? Well being the calories junkies we are we did it with food. What food did I have to celebrate during the week? Well here are just some of the things I indulged in:
- Po Boy Fried Shrimp Sandwich
- Stuffed crust pizza
- Stuffed crust pizza (this is here twice because I had it twice)
- Dairy Queen ice cream
I made some horrible choices. I am realizing that I need to start associating my celebrations with non-food items. So I was up this week but only by about a pound**. I thought for sure it would have been more but getting out in the sunshine with my boys must have helped counter act some of the junk.
I enjoyed myself but I also realize it is ok to indulge once in a while but I need to limit myself. The po boy should have been enough. I didn’t need to get pizza and ice cream also this week. I completely consumed my extra points and I have never done that before.
So my goal is to limit my celebrations and try to celebrate in other ways. My next big day is Mother’s Day. I have signed up to do a 5k walk/run for the Cure. I am so excited about it. I can’t wait to get out and walk for a great cause.
On to another week and another day. This lifestyle change takes steps, realizations and so much more. I am not on a diet or looking for a quick fix I am on a mission to change my relationship with food and exercise. I am on a mission to lead a healthy lifestyle and well I am on my way to do so….
