Working For The Long Weekend

You know why this is going to be a good week? Because it is going to be followed by a 3-Day weekend! That’s almost enough to make me jump for joy...if I wouldn’t draw attention to myself. I’ve been waiting for Memorial Day for like 3 months. That’s kind of sad but I don’t care. I am very much looking forward to a relaxing weekend. I had a pretty relaxing one this weekend. I walked...A LOT...but I got to watch a good bit of TV and I did my fair share of laying around. We also went to the trivia semi-finals last night and it didn’t go so well. The questions were really hard and it was smoky and just...it didn’t go well. We didn’t advance to the next level. Maybe next year.

As I said, I did A LOT of walking this weekend. I especially walked a great deal on Saturday. There was Farmer’s Market walking, river walking, Wal-Mart walking, apartment walking...blech...AND it was unhealthy it was so hot outside. I don’t know who makes the dates for the seasons but whoever it is that said Summer doesn’t start until June 2nd is NOT from Alabama. The heat here is one that you have to wade through...it’s thick and sometimes makes you lose your breath. Needless to say, I chose to walk INSIDE on Sunday. The good news is, because of my walking binge this weekend, I am all caught up on my steps. I am actually about 100 ahead of the game. If I can just do what I’m supposed to do every day, I won’t have to have these major catch-up weekends. I still have over 2 months left in this challenge so I have to make myself keep going.

I am in the midst of lots of mini-goals I have set for myself. In addition to the walking, I am also aiming to have a perfect June AND I have dedicated myself to making one Weight Watchers recipe a week. Tonight I am making a Feta & Tomato Frittata. I will definitely let you know how it goes. I like to cook, I just always make excuses not to so this challenge will be good for me. I think my ultimate challenge will be keeping motivation after they are completed (especially the walking one).

Last week, I was recovering from my birthday week. I was up about 7 pounds after all of the indulgences. I did OK last week, not perfect, but OK and I lost 4 of the 7 so hopefully doing well this week will get those other 3 off. I’m sure that I will have some good food Memorial Day but I am going to try not to get crazy...I mean...how am I ever going to get to 75 pounds if I think I can eat what I want every time I can muster up any kind of random justification?

One more thing. The good thing about other people you know being on Weight Watchers is that you can tell each other about different foods that are good to eat. I am not very good at giving the suggestions but I love getting them. Nish brought me some meringue cookies that are 2 for 1 point. They are big too. She told me they tasted like Lucky Charm marshmallows and they really do. You should try them! She got them from Publix...I plan on picking some up soon! Have a good afternoon and week! Bye!



“Oh what a day is today
Nothing can stand in my way
Now that you´ve shipped out
from under my skin
I think I´m ready to win

Oh what a night is tonight
I think I´m ready to fight
Now that my broken bones
all have been healed
I think I´m starting to feel

Something good
Something good
Now that you´re gone I can roll
On to something good.” Oh What A Day-Ingrid Michaelson
