So, I got on the scale this morning and then got back off, reset it... and got back on. I weigh exactly what I weighed last Sunday. Still down 9 lbs. Not an ounce more. I whipped out the tape measure though and am 3 inches smaller around the waist... so there is that. Now... in my head I know that muscle weighs more than fat and that my body is changing... blah blah blah. I REALLY wanted to see a smaller number on the scale. 12 more days until I fly to LA for Grammy weekend.
Today was another busy one! My husband brought me breakfast in bed including coffee, 2 pieces of bacon, and some yogurt with rolled oats and blueberries. What a guy!
Then I met a friend for coffee in NoPo and then popped by the BMW dealership to drool over the X1. Going to the auto show last week may have been a bad idea for me... SWOON.
Then I came home, grabbed a Lara Bar and the family and headed off to the Children's Museum. Buying that membership was a good call. The twins think it is paradise. Nothing makes me happier than seeing those little guys grinning.
For dinner, I had split pea soup. Boring, but quick and easy. Then I got to work laying out a spread of snacks for band practice tonight. I always provide sustenance and treats for the guys. I can't help myself. I think I have the 50s housewife gene. Of course snacks include chips and guac, bean dip, and 2 different kinds of skittles. Aaaaaand no rehearsal would be complete without a fresh sack o' wine in the Wine Log. Now I'm sitting next to the counter of deliciousness while I type this waiting for the band to show up. Me want Skittles. Grr. Instead, I'll just take a good long drink out of my water cup.
Tomorrow, I'm recommitting to the challenge. I haven't derailed, but I feel like I haven't been planning well enough for meals this past week. I've done the grab-and-go thing more than I should have. I think I'll take Sadie's advice and replace more grains with veggies this week too. That and the beefed up workout schedule she emailed out should be a good push in the right direction. We're down to the wire!
Here's a link if you want to hear the band: http://theheritageportland.bandcamp.com
There is still a free Christmas song for download on the front page. I keep forgetting to take it down, so now's your chance for a freebie!
I hope you had a great weekend!
