So, when I went to Weight Watchers Friday I knew I had gained a little. -.8 to be exact. I wasn't happy with this at all. Last week was an awesome weigh in and this week wasn't what I wanted to see. But what can ya do? Pout a little and keep on truckin', right?
Saturday was my Birthday! I turned 23 and had an awesome day. I started the day off with watching my niece play in her first basketball game. Four year olds and basketball is too much cuteness for my eyes! Then my grandma invited me to lunch. I was hesitant because I was planning on going to the noon Zumba class, but you can't deny your Grandma! So we went to a mexican restaurant and I just had one chicken enchilada, rice and probably too many chips and salsa. Then I got home and my husband wanted to go have lunch! So, we went to Olive Garden and I just got the salad and breadsticks since I was already really full from just eating 2 hours prior. We went shopping afterwards and I got a few things for my Birthday. Has anyone heard of Biosilk for your hair? Mmm love it!! Then my sister Lindsay was hosting a dinner in my honor so we went over there and ate spaghetti and had cake and icecream. I drank one too many alcoholic beverages and ended up "falling asleep" at my sister's for the evening.
So, basically, I had an awesome birthday, but ate/drank too much?! This is always the case for me. Any "celebrations" like family reunions, BBQ's, birthdays, etc I over eat and end up paying for it later. Why do I do that to myself? And the sad thing is, when I'm over eating I know I'm doing it but the little voice inside my head says "It's your birthday! enjoy!" I think this will just be a process. Will I ever be OK with food during "celebrations?" I know we have Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up..oh and a trip to Las Vegas in December as well. I will really need to buckle down and be strong.
Here's to another week on this weight loss journey! Hope everyone has a great week :)
