WOW - where did the summer go? My weight has been down, then back up and now it's right around the same place as it has been all year lol


I bought me and the kids plane tickets for Seattle @ Christmas so I REALLY want to get 10 pounds off by then!


Saturday, Sept 1


Food (not counting points on the weekends):


B - Grande skim sugar free vanilla latte, mini whole wheat bagel w/ 1 Tbsp lt cr cheese and 1 svg Healthy Choice lunch meat, 1/2 peach (Devin took my other 1/2 lol)
L- Chick Fil A with my friend and her son. I had all intentions of ordering "healthy" but went ahead and ate the regular Chick Fil A sandwich and fries with a Sprite (no Diet Coke today, my stomach was feeling "off") Then my friend took the kids up to the counter for ice cream and brought back brownies for the mommies....
D - Wasn't really hungry so I just ate some leftover noodles "Parmesan"
S - 2 - 100 cal packs of the Lorna Doone cookies


Water = 48 oz


Exercise = WATP for Abs 3 Mile dvd (50 min)


Notes - Chick Fil A was a disaster but it was my "cheat day". Should have got more veggies/fruits in.

Boy oh boy.....your friend spoiled you yesterday- does she know how to sabotage good intentions or what? lol- hey, what's with the no diet coke because of an upset stomach?? Does it make it worse for you? (I only ask, because on the mornings I wake up, from like let's say a late night (ahem), ....I need my d coke- rapido!!)


I was also thinking (and just read about your pizza fest LOL)- that you might want to do that cheat day on Fridays...or would there be too much temptation at work for that? I was only thinking it because I know you do Pizza Fridays with the kids ;-)

My "friend" WAS about 110 lbs last summer (she's 5' 8") and was tired of looking as straight as a boy so put on 35 pounds in a year and is now loving her "curves" but not liking her belly or thighs! LOL SO..... although she wants to tone up - she's still used to eating like crazy and I fell into her trap Saturday! LOL


The Diet Coke thing - when my stomach is upset for some reason Cola and coffee products make it worse so I stick with 7-up, sprite or ginger ale. Not sure why they affect me like that though.


The "cheat day" just about turned into a "cheat weekend" for me! LOL I dunno - I gotta figure something out because I haven't tracked points since last week...
