I swear Dez, my WW leader, was in my head tonight! She talked about how after being on plan for a while, one tends to get complacent (nodding head), kind of slacks off on the tracking (nodding head), maybe doesn't weigh or measure foods like they should (nodding head) and even skips meetings (OK, nope - not doing that!)
And she talked about how June & July are a lot like the winter holidays. June brings graduations (yup), proms (yup), bridal showers (yup), weddings (yup), open houses (yup - ours is in August, tho), family reunions (yup) and July brings the 4th and all it's requisite BBQs (yup) so lots of chances to really screw things up.
So she suggested to Refocus, meaning really thinking about what you're doing and making good choices, etc. The problem with me is that I totally forget! I'll go eat something and then I'll be like "WTF - what was I thinking?" I do that way too much. I made a list of stuff I ate this past week that wasn't the best of choices (which mostly didn't get tracked) and I'm embarrassed at how long that list was.
I need to sit my butt down and make a total meal plan, including snacks. I've not been getting all my fruits & veggies in. Sure haven't been exercising. I thought for sure once the kid started driving and I had evenings to myself that I'd be out walking, but for some reason I feel like I'm getting off work, going home, dinner and bed. And I swear I'm not going to bed at 8 pm!
So I was up .07 lb. Meh. Does anyone else try to gauge how they feel before weighing in to guess if the scale is going to be up or down? Is that just me? I need to get my butt in gear, I was just looking down at my roll.....ugly.
So this is why I won't be missing any meetings this summer! I want the smiley face charm! I may be missing one meeting while we're on vacation in July, but that'll be fine. 10 out of 12 meetings. Mine!
So tomorrow night is dress rehearsal for Miss Angel's dance recital. Dinner will either be at 4pm or most likely closer to 10pm. Yay. Friday is the recital and we usually hit Wendy's before and in the past we'd go to Red Robin afterward. Last year, the studio owner got a stack of pizzas and basically had a party at the studio afterward. If you want to see all her zillions of costumes, I have them posted here on my other blog.... I wish I could say we're done with dance, but we're not. Summer classes start in a couple weeks, so maybe her ankle will finally heal after she sprained it back in January! She tried out for and made the studio's All Star team and will be competing for them again next year. Hope she doesn't have culture shock when she starts college classes and actually has HOMEWORK! Since she sure didn't have much while in high school.
Anyhoo, I still have to go to work tomorrow, so I better get turning in - the next couple days are gonna be long ones!
