Down, but not out!

So, I have to say that this not weighing in more than twice a month is hard...hard...HARD, especially after weighing once or twice a day. I'm still holding fast to my commitment, though, and I'm hopeful that I will be happy on Friday with what the scale says, because for the most part I have been pretty spot on with exercise and eating.

Ok, until this weekend. Friday night DH and I went on our first date night in a long time, and I went ahead and decided to loosen things up a bit. I didn't go crazy - just had an open-faced turkey cheese burger and about a 1/2 serving of waffle fries. Came home and had a mixture of peanut butter, oatmeal, protein powder and cocoa powder. Pretty yummy. But yesterday was another story. Last night I went dancing for 3 hours, which is definitely a good thing, except that I gave in pretty quickly when my friends suggested that the perfect post-dancing activity is going to the diner for chicken fingers and fries. Doh!!!

I would like to know whose metabolism, exactly, I think I have? One of the many size zero twenty-somethings who were in the club last night? Because I have never been able to eat late at night without consequences. So, I am not getting any extra credit for all my lovely dancing, because I basically offset it with the late night munch fest.

Anyway, that's how I'm doing. Still journaling. Too tired to go to the gym today and too tired really to do much of anything except watch my kids play dress up and log my food and read and relax. Let's hope that's exactly what I get to do. (Oh Lord, they're arguing... AGAIN.)

Will hit the gym HARD tomorrow and all week. Hope everyone else is having a great day!

I will be working my butt off at the gym this week also. I have to make up for last week and not being able to get to the gym without my jeep.

Hope the scale in nice to you on your next weigh in.

I don't know if I could stay off the scale for a month! Hang in there!
