Day 10

I had a pretty good day today. One again I had trouble getting my points in. I was very very distracted. I had a few friends over all day, one doing laundry and needing a few errands ran, and the other is a diet buddy. I just feel like I am over eating. I had two servings of dinner because I didn't want to finish 18 points off at the end of the night in snacks. Dinner was amazing. I made chicken curry in the crock pot. Everyone enjoyed it and it made enough to make lunches for my husband and room mate, and me tomorrow.

Tonight I went to Wal-Greens with my husband to pick of a prescription for my brother. this is a danger zone for me. I find that we always come home with candy or ice cream or chips. Tonight I walked around the store looking, I even passed by our favorite things and I didn't pick up a single one. Another triumph ladies and gentlemen! I didn't make it to the track tonight because everything was hectic here for a bit, and by the time everything that needed to be done was done it was 4am! Hence this entry being made so late. Its okay. I'm not going to stress over it. I have literally been trying to work my ass off over here. I go to the gym tomorrow for my normal routine, along with the track, and I told Ashley I would go with her to the gym on Saturday. Sunday is my weigh in! I'm both excited and frightened. I don't want to be disappointed, and I dont want to give up. I don't want to feel like giving up. I want a little extra gas for my motivation engine! I promise though, that I will take any blow that comes along. I just have to keep going.

On a side note, I have discovered that I love the Recipe Builder on the Weight Watchers website, but hate the online points tracker. It is incredibly tedious. I like tracking in my little marble copybook just fine!

You're doing great! I am on Weight Watchers also, I have lost 33 lbs. since May 2. I love the program.

Can you post your chicken curry recipe? That sounds great.
