boo!

I did so great Friday and Saturday. I was totally OP - and I even faced down some really sinful looking chocolate cheesecake at the cookout.

But then Sunday it wasn't so good. I started out fine with breakfast, but after church the hub really wanted Mexican food...

My chips, rice and beans were definitely not low carb, but I at least ordered fajitas and not something fried. And then I felt guilty and decided for some strange reason to have a cheat day. But it wasn't too bad. I think the only other non-low carb thing I ate was an apple strudel, but that sucker had to be loaded and it wasn't that good.

But I'm gonna blame it all on TOM because I started today and it's not even my turn! (sorry if it's TMI - shoulda warned ya'll) It's not fair, but at least it explains the gain that I saw on the scale on Saturday (before my bad cheat day...). So I'm throwing back the water today and getting right back on the horse. I'm gonna try not to weigh myself for a few days so that I can assume that my efforts are working again and not let this surprise TOM get me down.

I do have to say that I at least had some control on my cheat day. I didn't eat everything in the house. So that's good, I guess. We can't be perfect 24/7, but I was hoping that I could make it OP for a good stretch. But today is a new day, and my body has already worked out all that sugar.

I'm so proud of the progress that all of you are making. Ya'll keep up the good work & have wonderfully OP days!! :o)

I know it can be a bad feeling when you have a "bad" day, I have had SO MANY along the way. My trick, just in case you care, is have a low day the following day. I don't know why, but it seems like it tricks your body (similar to the wendie concept I guess). Limit your intake today and drink as much water as possible, you will be surprised!!!
Thanks for all your support over the last week. I am so happy things are coming together...it's almost overwhelming!

Chocolate cheesecake sounds yummy, good job walking away from that. We all have cheat days so dont be to hard on yourself.

You are getting back OP so thats a good thing. Have a wonderful week. :)

At least you ordered Fajitas. They aren't too high in points as long as you have them in moderation. It's just those darn chips and salsa!

Good for you though for getting back on the wagon and getting back OP!

I came over hear to congratulate you on a job well done and I am SHOCKED!!! High carb?? Cheat Day??

LOL, have a great week - Back in the saddle, again.

PS - made it to church Sunday. M-i-l wasn't up to going, but I drug the hub and kiddies anyway. Told them we had prayin' to do. It was a great service.

Mandy, you should look into low carb chips. I know you are not suppose to have them in the first 2 weeks. But it could help a cheat be not-so-bad... the ones I found were Garcia's LC Flaxseed Tortilla Chips. They taste good and are good for you. Below is just one website that came up when I googled them!

Not that I am encouraging a cheat, but hey we all know it happens sometimes ;)

oops! Ate too much! oh well it happens. Move on. But as punishment you have to do at least 1 day of exercise (that you don't normally do) to make up for it. Also, for future reference. Don't have cheat DAYS, have cheat MEALS. you can pack a lot in in a day!
