Yep another monday and I feel like the weekend flew by. We had a party at our house on Saturday..we invited a couple families and my mom and hubby over. I was going to grill hamburgers and hot dogs but the more I thought about it I did not want to be cooking after spending all morning at the waterpark so I order a 4 ft sub sandwhich and then made sides...fruit salad and I made my salsa and chips. My mom brought over jello poke cake..that was yummy on a hot day..forgot how much I like them. It was an interesting party..I only was able to eat two bites of sub...um hello no bready for me. I had a couple bites of pineapple...but I find pineapple also fills me up way fast. But the sherbert ice cream and cake I had no problem eating but I did limit it to half piece cake and 1/2c sherbert. and then later that night I had a hot dog---no bread---bad choice I know...bad nighttime munchies....I was so bummed I ate it because otherwise I was pretty good all day.
Next day mothers day, we went to dinner at L o g a n s S t e a k h o u s e after our mani/pedis(with my mommy) and I had a salad there. I only ate 1/4 of the salad there....I was too slow they were all done eating and waiting on me so I took the rest home and finished there. I passed on the bread and the chicken strip appetizers because I knew I would never make it to my salad.
So overall I am ok with the food this weekend..could have been worse. I DID NOT get in my walking this weekend...for shame. I only got in 7000 steps on Saturday and 4000 on Sunday such a shame. It was hot and I didn't feel like walking...I think the only reason I got in 7000 steps was all the cleaning I did in the morning getting ready for party...mopping/sweeping and vacuuming.
I like the restriction I have and I am trying to make the most of it this week by eating more protein.. I can now see how I could easily not get in enough protein. Even eating veg's and fruits will fill me up if I eat them first so I am going to make an effort this week to eat more protein. I swear every fill is like starting over...but I LOVE IT. I am feeling so intune with my body and I can finally see how this is going to be successful if I use it the right way. I have my 3rd fill next week and dare I say it, that may be sweet spot for awhile.
On the weight front I am almost back to my 245..right now I am hovering at 248.5 so I am close I think I may hit it by Wednesday....so it will be nice to finally see something lower next week.
