I am again struggling this weekend. I have not been tracking and to be honest.....I don't really want to. I have not been focused since my WI on Thursday. I baked Thursday night for my husbands work party and then on Friday I had my work party. My dad looked after Grace for me so I could go. The lunch was at my favorite most amazing italian restaurant. I decided before I went that I wasn't going to go crazy and I was going to get exactly what I want. I did - I have to say that I actually did quite good. I had a bun I probably didn't need but they are so good with the fresh whipped butter. I don't go here often (maybe 3 o 4 times a year) and I was going to enjoy it. I made sure when I found myself kind of picking to have it wrapped right up. I left feeling full but not disgusting.

Today I have kind of grazed my way through the day...not a good thing but not terrible either. Tomorrow we have 2 open houses. This shouldn't be a bad thing because I can snack on a lot of veggies. I am quite a picky eater and find alot of the time it's the only thing I like. I am making a plan for the rest of the week to keep me on track before Christmas. I think from Wednesday on we have somewhere to be just about every night. I will need to eat really clean at home. I am going grocery shopping tomorrow morning so I can stock up on lots of fruits and veggies. I am cooking Christmas dinner again this year and I think I have finally got it down to not have too much stuff on the table - we don't need that much food, just keep it simple. I am so excited for Grace's first Christmas!


  1. I think it's great that you let yourself enjoy your favorite restaurant without going overboard. That's what it's all about!

  2. It sounds like you did great!! All things in moderation :) We can't avoid those situations forever, may as well learn to eat right while enjoying it. Can't wait to see Christmas pictures of grace!!
