The mean old hateful ugly scale is actually kissing up to me lately. He's been telling me nice things in the mornings and right now we're on good terms. I know he's a sneaky snake, though, and if I don't watch myself he'll start pissing me off again every morning and then Jess and Amanda will be right! (you know I love you girls!!) I know I have to mind my P's & Q's to be able to ride this as long as it will last, but the next two weeks are going to be rough. And when the going gets rough, the Mandy starts planning.
All of the sticky eating circumstances coming up are all in my control. On the Fourth I'm planning on bringing my own low fat hamburger patty and my own healthy bun. I'm bringing FF mayo so that I can make a single serving of deviled eggs, cole slaw, and maybe potato salad. I'm going to find a healthy ice cream recipie and not tell the family that it's healthy and see if they can tell. (I ALWAYS make homemade ice cream on the Fourth of July) We'll have cake because it's my SIL's b-day, and I can either have a small piece of that or some of my mom's baked beans. (trust me - the way she makes them cake and baked beans proally are equal in points) No margaritas and lots of water.
On our camping trip I will allow Jeremy one restaurant a day that will offer unhealthy foods and I will do my best to control my portion sizes and choices. (I'm sure he's going to chose Chinese buffet for one of them - DANGER! DANGER!) I will enjoy one meal of small endulgence and the other two will be strictly healthy. And I will bring my favorite healthy snacks along, too.
For VBS, I will review the menu and plan my points around it. If it's too high in points or if I haven't succeeded in planning my points accordingly - I will eat SubWay. I WILL NOT EAT THE CAKE THAT IS PROVIDED EVERY NIGHT!! :o)
Most important of all: I will count points for everything, and if for some reason if I mess up one day I will still count points and move on the next day.
There. Now that ya'll know it maybe I'll be more accountable and feel stronger. :o)
Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a wonderful OP day and rock the socks off this weekend!
