Weekend? What does it do to your diet?

Today is a new day! This is the only day that counts!

Usually the weekend offers many more obstacles.  Are you able to hurdle those obstacles?  I have been thinking about that this weekend.

On Saturday, I spent most of the day at home.  Later in the day I had to run to the grocery store.  Talk about a zoo.  Most people must have been in for the day yesterday.  I live rurally so going to the grocery is about a fifteen minute drive.  I cane  home and made a vegetable soup.

My son went to spend the night at a friend's.  Myhusband and I decided to go to the Casino.  We each put $20.00 in the machine.  It took us about five minutes each to lose our money.  We stayed around there for a while and then headed back home.  I made it through the day without too much struggle.

Today my friend called and asked me to have lunch.  She is going through some domestic issues and needs a friend right now. We went to Hoolihan's and sat for about 3 hours.  I got lettuce wraps.  I haven't looked up the calories yet, but I didn't eat the little crunchy things or the peanut sauce.  I just had lettuce and the chicken mixture.  This evening I ate leftover vegetable soup.  I don't think my eating was too bad.  Weigh-in tomorrow.  We'll see how the week goes.  I am not trying to lose weight rapidly, just lose consistently and enjoy life in the process.  This is a long term goal, not a rapid weight loss and then gaining it all back.

My exercise is definitely lacking.  I just need to get going more.  I don't have a treadmill or any exercise equipment at home.  I do have numerous exercise tapes.  I sometimes just climb stairs at home in the evening.  I won't make it to the gym until Tuesday.  With missing Friday it seems like its been a long time now.

Well weight - in tomorrow.  Cross your fingers!


  1. It sounds like you did fine! The sodium from the chicken mixture might be up a tad, but overall, I can't imagine doing much better! (watch the sodium content on all soups, too.)

    Good for you!!!

  2. Just stumbled onto your blog - I too am almost 60 (March 2 2014) so since Dec I have made it my goal to get healthy and lose some weight BEFORE I hit the big-0. It's so hard. I'm already trying to find ways to quit. Hang in there sister, we can do this! Misery loves company! :-)
