Day 47

Today was a pretty relaxing day. I went to the gym with my mom and did my two miles and my full circuit. When I came home I was able to relax with Chad for a few hours while playing Left 4 Dead, and then I made dinner. I had a very uneventful day! I don't know what tomorrow is going to be like though. I have my weigh in and meeting at 9am, and then I am supposed to be going to the Renaissance Festival with everyone. It is the last weekend. I'm not worried about the food there at all, but I know someone will want to go to dinner afterward. I just have to not give in to old temptations. I love the faire, but I worked there for so long that it just feels like a giant open air mall to me anymore. So much for all of the glitter eh?

Eek! Weigh in tomorrow! I'm nervous because there are a few wild cards this week, but I feel positive. I don't want a gain, but if it is a gain I am not going to give up. I'm going to just try and go forward. I'm sure you all get really tired of hearing this, but I feel like I have to prep myself for any outcome so that I can get over it without a bunch of drama. Yeah, I can be a touch dramatic.

Anyway, I do have my weigh in tomorrow, so I'm just going to ask you all to cross your fingers for me. :)

Oatmeal: 2
1/2 cup blue berries: 1
1/2 cup skim milk: 1
1 granola bar: 1
1/2 serving nutella: 2
1 serving jam: 1
1 arnolds sand thin: 1
Huge salad:
2 cups spinach/lettuce mix: 1
1 bell pepper ring: 0
2 cups broccoli and cauliflower mixed: 1
1/2 hard boiled egg: 1
1/4 cup garbanzo beans: 1
1/4 cup diced tomato: 0
1/4 cup fat free cheese: 1
1 serving pickles: 0
1 serving jalapenos: 0
1 serving light ranch: 2
3 oz lean steak: 3
8 oz bell pepper strips: 1
1/8 cup teriyaki sauce: 1
Huge salad (same as above): 7
extra serving pickles: 1
extra serving dressing: 3
1 cup ice cream: 5
Total for the day: 37/44

Not fretting, I have gotten in most of my points this week, and I totally annihilated my weeklies. Um, I definitely got my veggies in today though...

Good luck for the weigh-in! Glad you're determined to stick with it no matter what. I remember years ago having what I thought was a 'bad' week and losing an astonishing 16lbs(!) The next week I was exceptionally 'good' and gained back two of them! No rhyme or reason to it! lol

You wrote: " I'm sure you all get really tired of hearing this, but I feel like I have to prep myself for any outcome..." No, never, nada! I LOVE reading that you are being determined and persistant, and will never quit, NO MATTER WHAT!

And if you need to talk Healthy Talk to yourself every other sentence, then go for it, girl! You do whatever YOU need to do to succeed. This is not a sprint, it is a marathon. And there will be ups and the mental work you are doing is excellent.

I devoted the better half of 6 months to vs mode. We had an amazing 4 man team... I miss it.
