Just wanted to give you a quick update on my progress; I’m still pushing forward on my journey and I’m pretty darn excited that this train is still moving. While I haven’t had the “perfect” week in terms of my eating and my exercise I am pleased to announce another ½ lb loss. I’m not going to complain about that because my weekend I indulged a bit as my husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary.
For that dinner we went to Mitchell’s Ocean Club and let me just say that they NEVER disappoint when it comes to taste. I had the Sea Scallops that were on top of a parmesan risotto with English peas (I’m not a pea fan but I ate them). We also shared their jalapeno au gratin potatoes (one does not go there and not eat the jalapeno potatoes) and the roasted Brussels sprouts. I also had a martini and a slice of the 10 layer carrot cake. Let me be clear, I didn’t eat the entire slice of cake in one sitting, I saved half for the next day (and I split that half with my hubby).
My workouts were virtually non-existent last week but because my eating was not completely out of control, I was still able to lose some pounds.
This weekend will be a bit of a challenge because I am planning to go visit my family. I love my family but it is filled with a ton of great cooks and because they don’t see me very often they are always trying to feed me. It can be hard to walk away from all of that deliciousness, however my plan is to eat in moderation so that I can partake but not overload. I’ll just need to limit my breads and sweets.
I’ll say this, I’m not perfect but I will continue to try and continue to put forth effort. Can’t is not part of my vocabulary.
