Well, a few things I learned this weekend:
- I'm very detoxed due to eating plan of last 3 weeks. I am so clean that three cocktails on Friday night spread out over several hours (not an a-typical amount for me traditionally) was WAY too much. I felt like crap until Saturday evening. SO not worth it.
- Booze = gain. OK, this isn't new news, but let's say I was reminded. Saturday morning (post-alcohol-fest) my weight was actually lower than ever. Yesterday (and today) it's up about 3 pounds from that. Not entirely due to booze...
- Eating the "bad" carbs at night can't happen two days in a row. I had some chips last night. Bad idea. I also had some rice Saturday night at midnight -- even though that was a carb-up day, this was also a bad idea.
I am back on the carb-deplete today. Just for today. Just to get myself cleaned out from the weekend. I hope those 3 lbs. will be long gone by tomorrow. I'm thirsty today like I was the first week which I think is a good sign. (DB had a gain too -- a little less than me, but he ate more -- cheesecake, chips and beer. Very frustrating when I had only a few chips!)
Yesterday was PD1's birthday party at our house. We had a ball -- both PDs and their men, all but one grandchild (Princess was on punishment and didn't get to come -- I told her mother that felt like it was ME who was on punishment!). I didn't do too bad with the eating...didn't eat the corn we BBQ'd, just turkey, burger and salad. No cheesecake. No beer. But, apparently, too much wine. I also boogie-boarded for about 2 hours. My body is sore today. We walked a lot this weekend too. It still was not enough to stave off the lbs.
Cutie Pie (6-year-old granddaughter) stayed over with us last night and she just called me to say that her mommy (PD2) gave her permission to stay over tonight too. :-) I am taking her for a pedicure after work -- she remembered that I told her at Christmas that I'd take her for her birthday (in May) and "maybe you forgot". ;-) She's a pistol.
I had a small car accident yesterday morning on the way to take Doglet for a nail clip. More annoying than anything. Everyone is fine, cars are a little scratched. I'm sure they'll say it was my fault (even though it wasn't) and it will cost me. :-(
Last, but not least, my College Friend is here and it is so great to see him! :-) He'll be with us until next Monday... a nice vacation for him and nice for me to have him here.
