A new week - I'm going to make it count!

If you're wondering about Kelsey's on Friday, I was doing great until I walked in and sat down to a scrumptious-looking spread of appetizers. Keep in mind, I hadn't eaten since breakfast and it was 3pm so I was famished. I was pretty good, though, and had a half piece of bruschetta and a few pitas dipped in the drool-worthy spinach dip, skipping the wings and calamari. I went with my usual club wrap and garden salad, so that probably wasn't too bad, and then split the chocolate lava cake for dessert. And then there were the 4 (5?) glasses of wine. I give myself a 6 out of 10. Coulda been better, coulda been worse.

For the remainder of the weekend I did okay. Wasn't great, but certainly wasn't as bad as last weekend. The worst part is I didn't drag my butt to the gym once. I am determined to make up for that this week! I'm going to try to go every day. Mom and I are trying out GoodLife in Aurora (Sarah's gym!) for a free week starting tonight, so we'll see how that goes. On the agenda tonight is another 3 mile run.

I am also determined to have ZERO CHEATS all week, right up to and including Superbowl Sunday. I did fine last week until Kelsey's. As soon as I make one bad choice, it's a slippery slope. There should be no temptations til the Sunday and if I make it that far without slipping, I refuse to throw it all away for a handful of chips!

And you can hold me to that!

Anyway, Monday is finally almost over. Hopefully by this time next week, I will be reporting a minimum 2 lb loss! (I was up 1 lb at 176 this morning. Boo!)
