Oh my. I am retaining so much water! But first, my official weigh-in on Friday gave me a weight of 224. Not bad! It's certainly not a huge loss, but it's a loss nontheless and I'll take it. Especially considering that I ate quite a bit of food the weekend before, and a little bit into the week. Most notably, I had ice cream two days in a row - Sunday and Monday, and Monday I had a delicious pasta dinner at my in-laws. But that's all over now, and I dropped 0.2 pounds.
Now, this Friday I may not be so lucky. Here's the thing. On Friday, it was someone's last day at work and some "kind" soul brought in a tray of muffins. I truthfully only had about a 2-inch piece of a muffin. That was very good. Hubs and I went out for dinner later that night, but I didn't overindulge too badly.
Saturday, however, was my sister's 18th birthday. Big day! So big, in fact, that I celebrated with a bagel for breakfast, pizza and French fries for lunch, the biggest piece of thickly-iced birthday cake that you ever did see, and then I came home to enjoy some Doritos and another little bit of birthday cake.
This morning I woke up and my engagement and wedding rings are barely moving. LOL I feel gross, but not gross enough to not have a piece of cake for breakfast, plus some Doritos at around 9:30 AM. Who does that? Really, who eats Doritos in the morning? I do, apparently. And I can't believe I offered to take a piece of cake home with us yesterday! Gosh, how ridiculous. It's just so damn good.
Today we'll be celebrating Mother's Day with my in-laws (yesterday we celebrated with my mom), and said celebration will include an Italian feast and dessert of some kind.
We all have to live a little, right? I may not be thrilled on Friday, but it is what it is. Life happens, and sometimes I want to enjoy it with food. So sue me. ;)
