I am now 13.5 points over. The Stampede breakfast would have been fine, but then husband & I went to see Transformers II (good movie) and I had the kiddie popcorn with topping. Even that would have been fine. What got me off track was the box of Smarties. 5 pts. Gone. Sigh. The worst part? I really enjoyed them! Normally I give away the sweet treat immediately. I don't know where my head was yesterday - I didn't even think about doing it yesterday - I just dove right in. Silliness.
In spite of all this - I had a great weekend. We watched all of Season 5 of Stargate Atlantis. We had so much fun at the Stampede Breakfast, which was not only tasty, but we had a great visit with two couples - one from husband's work and one from my previous place of employment. It was just really nice. Both couples are just really, really good to the core people. It felt good to re-connect. We have to be more than just the food we eat. The review of a successful day has to be judged by more than how many points were in the pancakes or popcorn or smarties.
Yesterday I also got to talk to my sister, who lives across the country. They had to put their dog down a couple of days ago. Just breaks my heart. Their dog was quite old, and she said that on Thursday they just knew it was time. Elliot would no longer eat his most favourite treat, he had no reactions at all to being rubbed in his most special spots that he loved. He had completely given up. Her husband is devastated. They are grateful for the years they had together though, and they have lots of warm memories and pretty pictures.
Today, my puppy & I will be taking a run. I have to do Fitness Magazine workout, Amy's workout..... and I may or may not cycle. Oh, I have to stop doing side plank - it is killing my shoulders. Husband has a book of exercises, and I've found a replacement to work my obliques. Phew!
Ok, enough rambling - I need to eat and then get working out!!
