Confession Is Good For The Soul.....

So...I've been MIA for a little while.  I took a long weekend this past weekend.  My husband and I celebrated our 1st anniversary on Sunday.  So, we had off all weekend, Monday & Tuesday.  It was sooooo nice!  We ended up staying at home and relaxing.  It was great!  Except for the fact that I ate too much!  We did go out to a little anniversary lunch on Sunday after church.  We went to Hibachi.  I didn't find much "accurate" nutrition info for their food, but we went anyway.  I just told myself it would be a "cheat" day.  After all, I did well on Saturday - and I went out for a run.  That was the last time I worked out!  Time kinda got away from me.  I had good intentions........

~Here we are on our anniversary @ Hibachi~

Anyway - the eating's SO much harder for me when I'm at home.  With my options wide open, I snacked....and snacked...ugh.  I did try to get things back on track yesterday.  We did kind of a brunch thing at Bob Evans...and I got a lighter option - so that was two meals in one.  However, my friend Steph's birthday dinner was at Outback last night.  I ended up hungry in the meantime.  I tried to prepare in advance....I looked at Outback's menu & nutrition info.  OH MY!  I had heard that they were bad...........but MAN, I was seriously wondering what I was going to eat!  SEVERAL things I looked at were over 1000 calories.  For ONE MEAL!  *sigh*  I remember looking up one entree - and it was 42 points!  That's WAY over the points I have for the day!!!!  I didn't do TOO bad overall.  I did have a little bit of cheese fries and bloomin' onion.  My meal was supposedly under 500 calories since they listed an option to have it made without butter.  I was glad to see that option! 

So with all that said, I got on the scale this morning............and I'm up a little.  I'm not surprised.  I'm hoping I can break even this week!  We'll see.  I was ready to go this morning.  I packed a healthy lunch, parked at the mall and walked to work (I usually just park in the building), took the stairs (7 flights), and have a positive attitude....  No matter what the scale says tomorrow, next week will be better!  This was a week of celebrations - and I'm not going spend time feeling guilty about celebrating love and awesome people in my life!
