Weekend Woes

Ugh...so as much as I hate work, I need the weekend to end so that I can get back on track! (She says, as if the weekend was to blame.)

To be fair, this weekend was not nearly as bad as some that I've had in the past. And it's funny...despite the fact that I sometimes lose my way on the weekends, my weight loss doesn't seem to be hindered. No, that doesn't make it okay for me to eat like a gross pig, I'm just sayin'.

Hubs and I went out for our dinner Friday night, which I mentioned was my cheat meal. It was actually not that bad - for dinner I had pork loin, a salad with a teensy bit of dressing on the side, and French fries. The French fries were honestly my worst choice of the night, and I didn't eat them all. I also had a dinner roll, but stop judging me! And that was it...so not too bad.

Saturday was much less worse than it could have been. I was wicked on track all day, but then Hubs wanted to stop at White Castle for dinner on our way home from car shopping. He asked me if I wanted anything and I said no, which was true. But once he got them in the car, God almighty...that stuff is like manna from heaven. But I only had a bite of his slider and 4 or 5 French fries, and then I was done. When we got home, I skipped dinner and instead had about 2 cups of organic popcorn for about 160 calories. Not terrible.

Today was a little less easy. I started out well with a coffee and a mini Clif bar for breakfast (200 calories total). But then I totally gave into my salt craving...*sigh* I had - let's be honest here - about 3 servings of potato chips for 450 calories and a few pieces of beef jerky for abour 200 calories, which is so whiskey tango (read: white trash). Then Hubs and I went to Barnes and Noble and I had a soft pretzel (290 calories) and a double fudge cupcake (350 calories). Jesus! But at least I skipped the Caramel Light Frappuccino that I usually get (130 calories).

I swore I was going to eat NOTHING for the rest of the night, but all of those empty calories burned away and I was left really hungry. I made a smart choice for dinner and had an Amy's Breakfast Scramble Burrito with a little bit of salsa for about 350 calories total.

It's 6:30 PM now, and I am REALLY done eating whether my body likes it or not. I already packed a super healthy lunch and snacks for tomorrow, so I know it's going to be a good day. :) I really do.

Weigh-in on Tuesday! Despite the slightly lousy weekend (especially today), I'm looking forward to it. I have faith that it's going to be a good number. Perhaps a little more than Friday since that was a big drop (maybe a fluke?), but still...I think I'll be happy.

Until then, cheers!
