How'd That Work? Not too good!

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

That's a common phrase on my hubby's favorite radio show and though it's meant to be funny, when I use it today - it definitely isn't.

I said that I wanted to maintain my weight over the long July 4th weekend and I didn't. I gained 1.8 lbs. I guess I could say that it must be water weight because of eating salty foods. The reality is I "said" I wanted to make good food choices but I didn't plan or do anything to support what I said. How silly of me to run to the scale this morning hoping to see that same numbers that I had four days before eating, drinking and being merry. What was I thinking? Magic? Just because I said something it would happen? Oh the mind games I play.

Well the good news is, today is another day. Amen! Today I can choose to plan my meals, I can choose to get in some extra steps, and I can choose to not be disappointed at my weekend results.

My family had a WONDERFUL long weekend. We were together, four generations! We laughed and swam in the pool and cooked out tons of great food. My 88 year old mom tried to learn how to drive a new car and my 16 month old granddaughter began to potty-train. How very blessed we are.
