Is it just me, or did Tuesday feel like a double header, with Monday rolled into the morning, and Tuesday afternoon getting things, for the most part, squared away?
As much as we love three-day weekends, we pay for them a little bit on the back end. I had an exhausting Memorial Day weekend, culminated with a family gathering Monday evening. I started grilling all of my courses early in the afternoon. When the last guest arrived, I pulled the last bit of chicken skewers off the grill.
As is always the case, the bubbly flowed, which might also explain the sluggishness of Tuesday. So today, when I weigh in for WeightWatchers@Work, I hope the results are zero to no weight gain for change. But, one must always anticipate a dose of reality and sin no more. Eh. A set back is only as destructive as you let it be. Plan better, make a pot of WW Zero-point soup, eat fiber, skip most of, but not all of, the fat.
I’ll tweet about it later. I’ve been eating so much fruit and veggies that I wonder if I’m starting to look like this:
Well, I did have steak in my salad last night…

  1. as your heel heals, you’ll be able to just put in more miles if you’re going to be putting away more calories. that won’t help with the catching up at the office part of the long-weekend payback, however.

  2. Hi Paula… I follow you on Twitter and I follow your blog and I have to say, I am SO THERE with you about the weigh in wednesday scenario– especially after a long weekend.

    i’m an active lady myself, and so I look at my weight as an ebb and flow… letting the hair down when family comes is reality, and then yanking it back up into a ponytail (i.e.: WW zero point soup) during the week is how we manage our waistlines.

    Just wanted to say that another woman is right there with you, reining things in.

    Thanks for the interesting connections and links on Twitter, too. 🙂
