I'm feeling a little down today...it could be a number of things.
My monthly friend is due.
Not enough sleep this weekend.
Brady's birthday is over.
It's cold and rainy.
I ate horribly all weekend long.
Brady is home sick today...well, he was this morning...now he's better.
So, to make myself feel better...I had this after lunch.
You know the donuts that come in the box with the powdered ones and the chocolate ones?
Well, nobody eats them here. I read somewhere that if you bake them for a few minutes,
they get all crispy and warm and are much better. So, since I'm on a downward spiral as far
as eating goes...I thought I would try it. And, it's true! It tasted like it came straight out of the
oven at the bakery! Only it came straight from the box and out of my oven!
Why am I even eating this donut when I joined Weight Watchers two weeks ago?
I have been the same weight for years...and I just wanted to try and lose 10 lbs. before summer.
I feel like I am good at exercising...I'm just not very good at watching what I eat.
Anyway, I followed the program to a T those first two weeks. The first week I weighted in, I lost
exactly one pound. I had heard that often the first week people lose the most. I was a little disappointed,
but it didn't discourage me from continuing on. The second week, I lost .2 ounces! As soon as I left the
meeting, I came home and had 1/3 of one of these:
I made a bunch of these for a bake sale at school.
Quick and easy. I posted about them before...you
can find the directions here.
I know Weight Watchers works...I just need to stick with it.
I tend to give up too easily if I don't see results right away. I need to
remember how good I felt those two weeks. I felt in control of what I was eating,
I had more energy, and I felt better. I will try and get back on track.
Sunday afternoon I looked out the window into our backyard and saw this mom and three kids
playing on Brady's playset. It must have been someone visiting a neighbor because I didn't recognize
them. I just find it odd. I can't imagine taking my son into someone else's yard without asking first. I'm all for sharing. In fact, I enjoyed watching them play...at least someone's getting some use out of it! Brady has enjoyed playing on it here and there...but definately not like we had hoped he would. Anyway, maybe I'm just being overly critical. My husband didn't seem to think it was a big deal. I just find it a little rude. Just ring the doorbell and ask. Oh well. Maybe it's just my monthly friend coming out...she's not as nice as me.
Have a great week!
