Cupcakes, and doughnuts, and pizza, OH MY!
Sunday, October 10, 2010
Well, crap. Can I call a re-do? Last week didn't happen. All the junk I ate, didn't happen. Not exercising, didn't happen. The consequent 4.5lb gain, that didn't happen.
Ok, now that that's outta the way, here's a re-cap. Last Saturday, I did the first workout of the C25K, Sunday, I took off as normal, Monday, I spent cleaning, Tuesday I spent studying for my GED tests. All those days, I did pretty good with my food. I didn't log, but I ate reasonably, and didn't have any junk food. Husband gets home late Tues. night (trucker, gone for 2 weeks, home for a few days) Then comes Weds morning. And getting me, dh and my 2 kids out of bed and out of the house by 6:30 am so we can drive 1.5 hours to where I'm taking my GED test. My husband's a fast food addict, and it's easier to grab breakfast and pass it to the backseat than it is to make breakfast for all of us (and make the kids eat it). So, instead of packing something sensible for me, I grabbed a McGriddle and a parfait, and a coffee.
DH drops me off at the test, and goes 1 hour away to my mom's with the kids, so I am on my own, stuck with whatever's within walking distance of the testing facility. Pizza place, 3 blocks away. Oh no. I had 3 slices of pizza, a decent salad, and a butt load of cantaloupe. Not too bad. I spend the other half hour lunch break on the swings at the park across the street.
Spend the night at my mom's, steak, cheesey veggies, and a baked potato. not too bad again. Breakfast the next day, dh grabs doughnuts on the way to the 2nd day of testing. Again, getting out the door by 6:30, easier to get breakfast on the way. 3 doughnuts and a kolache. Test is finished by 11, so we take the kids to the park for half an hour, then go to Braum's for lunch. 1/6 lbs burger, no mayo, no fries and split a frozen yogurt with Maddie. Off to the fishery, walk around feed GIANT catfish with the kids for about an hour. Drive 1.5 hours home. Run to Wal-mart. DH gets cake and wine and tv dinners to celebrate my completion of the test. We drink 2 small bottles, and eat half of a little cake.
Thursday, Halloween craft day! Dh get's doughnuts again! (He really has a thing against cereal!) We paint pumpkins, and make ghost cupcakes (everything from scratch, with marshmallow and whipped cream ghosts on top!). Lunch is thrown together, dinner is pizza.
Friday, breakfast is not doughnuts!!! Had left over cupcakes, and went out for dinner though, IHOP, after the week of sweets, I didn't want pancakes or french toast, so I got chicken florentine crepes. Drool! Then we took the kids bowling for the first time. Zach (will be 3 next month) tried to kick the bowling ball, and I sat Maddie on the floor and helped hher roll the ball. I got 2 strikes! Great fun was had by all!
Until Sat, when I realize it's my weigh-in day. And I pigged out on some major junkage, and didn't exercise at all. Oh crap! Skip the weigh in. Dh left, and I can finally get some order in my eating and exercising plan restored. (Isn't it so much easier to blame the enabler than yourself? But it is so much easier to stay on track when he's gone. When he's home, he's in the weekend mentality, and that means he thinks that I should spend time with him, not cooking, cleaning, or exercising.)
Since in the WIN challenge, I can't skip weighing in, no matter how much I want to! So, I step on the scale this morning. EEEP! 163.4... Last week, I was 159. Why do l let myself
self-destruct like that?
So, while none of that actually happened, I have my work cut out for me this week. I know a lot of it is water retention from all the freaking sodium, and that in 2 weeks, I'll be back to 159, but still, that's one week of bad choices negating 2 weeks of forward progress. Grrr.
Not again. Next time dh comes home, I'll have a menu plan, just like I do when he's gone. I will stick to it, just like I do when he's gone, and I will not let the couch cuddles over-ride my need to exercise!!
