A life and weight-loss journey.

Monday mornings…

on February 18, 2013

Anyone else find the weekends the hardest to stay on track? I know I do. That’s the time we typically manage to socialize with people…during the week we tend to just socialize with our babies and cattle.

Saturday was a “big” day for me. I wrote my first exam for the medical transcription course I’m taking. I was told by other students to expect it to take 5 hours…it took me just under 2. Hey, I guess we can’t all be as smart as me. Anyway, I took the extra 3 hours of alone time to do a little shopping and I even treated myself a tiny bit. By the time I got home from the city lets just say I couldn’t eat anything but vegetables for the rest of the day. Thankfully the day was mostly gone so it was no problem. I actually managed to go no more than a few points into my weekly bonus budget.

Then yesterday my brother-in-law cooked us supper. He’s a trained chef…need I say more? However, since I knew this was coming, I also managed to keep my points during the day quite low so I had a little wiggle room and again managed to just dip into the weekly bonus by a few points. Feeling pretty good this monday morning.

Now for a new-to-me job, helping my hubby with the cattle/calf sorting to prepare for last years’ calves shipping out this afternoon.

If I get the chance, I will be back later today to update with a tip…Happy Family Day everyone!

    Sara, I love reading about your journey! You are inspiring. And I love the food recommendations – that banana, peanut butter oatmeal sounds amazing. And you made me think about switching from margerine to butter…also, I agree with you regarding artificial sweeteners…gross. Thanks for the good read and keep up the great work!
