Wow it seems like the past week just flew by. Or maybe I just had a lot going on. I knew that this week wasn’t going to be a huge loss because I had some events that I knew were going to be a little bit out of my control eating wise. I actually expected a small gain or a goose egg so I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I did super good Monday through Wednesday and that I believe was my saving grace. Of course thanks to the Nutrisystem food it isn’t hard to stay on track. Thursday I joined fellow bloggers in the event Chevy Mom’s Nite Out. I knew we were eating at Carrabba’s and had planned on getting some grilled chicken or something otherwise healthy. However it turned out we had two choices regarding our dinner. So I ended up with Chicken Marsala and a Caesar Salad. It wouldn’t have been my first choice but it was absolutely delicious!
Friday I totally forgot about a baby shower of a co-worker and yes I could have chosen to eat before or after the event but I decided I wanted to participate with everyone and I ended up eating Mexican food. Again no choices it was a buffet style appetizer kinda party. I did super good on Saturday and all day Sunday until once again I went out to eat. Monday was my anniversary so my husband and I went out to dinner Sunday night as a celebration. I took the night off once again and just enjoyed myself. Of course that was my choice, I know I could have done well Sunday night because this time the choice was mine.
Despite my poor eating habits on these occasions the best part is I had no trouble jumping right back to eating good Monday and now Tuesday morning. To be able to do that is a success in my book. That is the whole point of the program. It isn’t a strict diet that you simply follow until you lose your weight. It is learning how to eat well, that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy your occasional pleasures, what it means is you just jump back into once you do. So I had some curve balls this week. I enjoyed my events and friends and I didn’t let it spoil everything. Of course with the awesome tasting Nutrisystem food it is pretty easy to jump right back on the next day!
