Out Shopping...

Well, online Christmas shopping actually. That's where I have been all night. 

God, I love being able to shop online. 

I did pretty well on the whole Just One Week thing with the Weight Watchers. I started the day fine, but it could have taken a turn for the worst when I opened the delicious bin of mini crispy chocolate chip cookies from Trader Joe's (I was prepping kids' lunches for the next day.) I did eat 2 servings of the cookies--2 separate occasions, not all at once like usual. BUT my dinner was a big salad with some boars head ham and chicken (2 ounces total) and a huge bowl of warm butternut squash (as is...just a sprinkle of salt.) It was totally satisfying and made up for the cookies. 

I am off to eat a skinny cow and try to get into bed before midnight. It has been so damn hard to get up in the morning lately.

Hi Julie! Glad you"re doing well too! I think this might be the key for me -- just one week. It feels so much better than the reality of oh 8-9 months. :)

Hi Heather! I really have to focus on just one day...I am so on and off with it! I have to get disciplined...I know it is in me...but tonight I will have a delicious burrito bowl for dinner and I can't wait. At least it won't be followed up by ice cream.
