Weekends are usually hard for me so I was hoping to stick to plan this weekend as best as I could. I wasn’t feeling great on Friday after work and didn’t end up going to the grocery store. I figured I could just go on Saturday morning. Well, we had a giant snow storm coming our way late Friday night/Saturday morning and I wasn’t too excited about it. They were predicting a TON of snow…..like 15″ – no joke. Well that night around midnight I ended up going to the grocery store when my boyfriend got home from work so he could stay home with my daughter. Anyways, I wasn’t really prepared to grocery shop and didn’t really feel like making a list either so I just wandered around the store. I had one meal idea and was trying to figure out how to modify it to make it “on-plan”. I bought enough food to cover us for the weekend and made it home safe.
On Saturday morning I started a Beef Stew in the crockpot for dinner and went on with my day. It overall was a good day and I stuck to the plan. It was nice. Later that night my boyfriend wanted a snack like cookies or brownies. I remembered that I had a box of brownie mix in the cupboard so I let him make them. They smelled delicious. I SOOOOO wanted one or ten! Ok, so I can just have a tiny one, right? And I did, however it wasn’t tiny, but so yummy. I felt bad, but then I figured that well I’m usually pretty good so one snack once in awhile isn’t a big deal.
Well this morning I woke up and didn’t eat breakfast for awhile and seen those brownies. They were really tempting me. I avoided them. Then I gave in. I ate a brownie for breakfast – ok actually two of them. Then I felt really bad and never actually ate real food so that wasn’t great. Darn you delicious brownies. I love you, however ummmmm we need to break things off, it just isn’t working out between us. Now, I’m having a ton of cravings for junk food. I am not liking this.
Otherwise besides the brownies I’ve eaten pretty on plan and it’s made me feel a bit better. I’m thinking that the scale isn’t going to show me a nice number tomorrow, but I know I should go to the SG office anyways to check in since I couldn’t go on Saturday because of the snow storm.
I hope everyone else in my area survived the snow storm. I was pretty naive about the amount that we received until I went out Saturday night to shovel. OMG…..I was snowed in, it was terrible. I honestly thought my eyes were going to pop out of my head seeing that much snow. I think my jaw literally dropped and I ran inside to say that I give up on the shoveling idea!! LOL. So I didn’t leave the house at all on Saturday. I wanted to get out today (Sunday) and went to attempt to shovel again and had a really hard time. Well I finally decided that I would find a neighbor with a snow blower and offer to pay them if they could plow behind my van. Turns out that my neighbor wouldn’t take my money and plowed my vehicle out. I was thrilled!!
Well, anyhow I’m going to relax the rest of the evening. Hope all of you are having a great weekend!!!
