Hey there. This was a fun weekend. My friend came down from New York for a short visit. She got in on Friday and I just took her to the train a few hours ago. We basically just hung out at the pool and had nice dinners. She treated me to a great tapas restaurant not far from me. It was lovely. We had chorizo with mashed potatoes, scallops in a red sauce . . . I was definitely off plan that night. I thought I would be bummed that I didn't stay on plan, but actually I think it was good for me. I didn't over eat, I wasn't stuffed, but I had a little bit of everything. It's nice to enjoy good food that's worth the extra points, even if the weekend did put me over my flex points for the week. I don't plan on having meals like that on a regular basis, but every once in a while I think is okay. If I'm up this week at my weigh-in, so be it (which I assume I will be). At least I'll know why I was up.

Still having trouble motivating myself to exercise. I think I have myself convinced to do my DVD tomorrow morning before I start my job search work and then go to the pool in the afternoon. And who knows, if the pool is quiet, maybe I'll be able to get in a few laps!

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

I think going off plan is a good idea every once in a while. I find it hard to enjoy a meal when I'm trying to figure out how many calories everything is. The fact that you weren't stuffed after the meal is a sure sign that you were a success anyways!

Mmm ... chorizo ... so hard to find it here in Atlanta.

I've just been playing with my exercise routine and have started swimming laps. It has totally gotten me past my six week plateau, and I've lost five pounds in 2 weeks.

I was so excited that I had the chance to move into second place on Julie's challenge, and then you had to go and lose 2 pounds! Congrats anyway! *%^$#~!

No, really. I'm thrilled for you. Yeah. :)

Hi Trixie. Thanks for your comment on my blog. It has really helped me put into perspective this weight loss thing.
