Roller Coaster

It's a roller coaster but I don't want to get off.  Even if there are not enough highs, and too many lows on this ride.

I was doing great and had my pre- planned bad day on Friday to take my son to a movie.  I had nachos, my movie favorite.  Then Saturday came, and I was mostly good, but not good enough.  Sunday was a birthday with Pizza Hut pizza and Dairy Queen birthday cake!  Monday, I was mostly good again but let myself crack at the end of the day.  Tuesday, I had grand plans to be good, I was doing great, then my mom and I went to bingo (it keeps her happy). I brought veggies and dip, she brought Hickory Sticks and chocolate.  I know that I am able to say no, but I didn't.  Such bad choices and I keep on making them!

Tomorrow is another day, and I plan to start every day as a good one.  If I didn't then the last two and a half years would have been for nothing.  Don't give up.  Never give up.  Ride the roller coaster. . .BE the roller coaster, because a roller coaster track never ends, it just keeps going until you stop. Don't stop and you will get back up the hill again.

Easter: Good or Bad Day?

My food baby has grown and I'm not being very good job of shrinking it! I managed to have a couple of pretty good days but then followed them with a really bad day.  I have done well the last couple of days (despite Easter dinner) and I need to do extremely well for at least one more day before a very important weigh-in. . .I did another DietBet.

My Mom told me a couple months ago she was going to pick up a ham to cook for Easter.  I called her Saturday night to ask if there’s anything she forgot that I can pick up before the stores close.  Grocery stores here are closed at 11pm and are not open on Easter.  She tells me she didn’t get anything for Easter.  She “forgot” to get the ham (and also had nothing else like potatoes, for example).  So off to the store I go at 9:30 pm the night before Easter.  Thankfully they had many hams to choose from!  Making Easter dinner myself probably worked out better as I was able to make things that would be good for me to eat (like a kale salad from Costco). 

This weigh-out has one more catch; PMS. I should be good and bloated by Tuesday! Darn!  I'm drinking lots of water to try to keep it flushed out.  If I'm close on Tuesday, I can take that day and work my ass off so that maybe I can make it on Wednesday instead.

A friend posted this picture after I made this
post so I had to come back and add it!
