Post-WI Wednesday

I am so happy I could just spit. :) After a vacation of being careful but not too, too, careful and another week of giving my appitite free reign, I was quite excited to only be up half a pound! I was expecting to be up atleast 3 or 4 pounds. It was the kick in the pants I needed. So, it's back to counting points today.

My girlfriend and I had a huge walk lastnight. Well, I say walk, but I tell ya, she hoofs along a quite a clip! I was puffing and trying to keep up with the conversation. Whew! My rear muscles are sore today!

So with Thanksgiving coming up I have a game plan to survive the weekend. Our leader told us some tricks we could use. In your mind, make a 1 cm ring around all the portions of your food. Make sure you can see the plate between your potatoes, meat, vegetables etc... It will help with portion control. Also, to gobble up the conversations and the family time instead of all the snacks and treats. And when it just gets too much, go outside for a walk until the craving passes. And drink half of your water before the big meal.

Easy right? Riiiiiight. LOL! We'll see. We will be away from Friday until Monday. That's a long time for me to be good. But I am determined to try!

Have a great Turkey Time everyone! There are lots of things to be thankful for! :)

San Fran Photos

I thought I'd post some pictures from our San Fran trip. One is a picture of the Crookedest Street. One is of me looking like a goof on a Segway tour. (SO fun!) And the last one is of me at the north beach by Fisherman's Wharf. I spent the day there relaxing with my sketch pad and pencil.

Sorry this post is not WW related! :) Oh wait, I will add one more picture... The food picture is my attempt at eating healthy while on vacation. HA! I'll bet there's 15 points or more on that plate! It was nearly impossible to eat out and stay on plan for a whole week. Anyway, I am back at it here at home where it is much easier to say on track!

Cheers everyone! Have a good night!
