Sunday Night Refocus - Monday Morning Edition

Hello blogland! I've decided it's the holidays that are making me a lazy blogger. So much to do, so little time!

Let's check in:

  1. Drink more water. Yes! I'd say I got in at least 70oz 5 out of 7 days. Loving Watermelon Strawberry Mio!
  2. No candy. I did better this week even with PMS! Wednesday I had some Junior Mints.
  3. Exercise 3 times: Didn't do anything this week. Unless you count mad shopping!
  4. Bandster Basics. Definitely getting better. Not serving myself too much. In fact, I told my hubby he can't make my plate for me anymore because he always puts way too much there and then gets upset when I don't eat it. 
  5. 1200 cals per day: I need to be better about logging on the weekends. I also didn't log a lot this week because of the parties. Bad excuse, I know.
We had two potlucks at work this week, and I made it through both without being a pig. Wednesday I indulged in some cheesy potatoes, but other than that, I tried to stick with the protein and veggie options. On Friday, one of the nurses brought in a fantastic texmex coleslaw. I will have to get the recipe to share with you guys... I need to make it a staple. So good! There is yet another party today at lunch -- pizza this time. I hope they have salad too.

So what's the plan for this week? Well, the gym bag is packed and in the car. I'm planning on going to Circuit class this afternoon.  I think I need some kind of program or routine. This willy-nilly thing is NOT working for me. I also brought my shaker cup to work so I'm prepared for post-fill liquids. I have HMR shakes, soups, and some different herbal teas. I still have to plan for mushies.

Hey, I almost forgot! It's fill week! Wednesday is a big day for me. Fill in the morning (I'm going to ask for a teensy weensy bit), then a giant appointment at the weight control center. First I see the exercise physiologist and get the DEXA scan, then I see the nutritionist, and then I see the doc. Should be interesting. And I promise to post about it in a timely manner!

It sounds like you are doing just fine though- good job.

Some how I've miraculously managed to avoid any holiday parties/cookie exchanges this year! That has really helped. Otherwise I have no power over cookies!

Hi hon! I'm bad about logging my food on weekends too! I think we just need to dig in and do it! *hugs*

At least you are remaining accountable, and that will mean you will have a better chance of sticking to your goals. You can make it to the gym this week. Congrats on all your other goals, seems like they are doing quite well considering the season :o)

Share the slaw recipe! :)

Also, weekend logging for me is depressing... don't remind me! LOL

Sounds like you did well with the potluck. Large volumes of free food are like my kryptonite!

P.S. I received my giveaway this week. It was like an early Christmas present since I had forgotten all about it. I love the products too! Thanks sweetie!
