That is right – I did not take my scale after all! After much deliberation, I decided I needed to give myself an opportunity to see what “real life” would be like for me. I say “real life” because I mean a life in which I am not constantly considering what every little bite of food will mean for the scale (or my waist line). Now, not that I mean I went hog-wild and ate everything. I did not. I still ate sensibly, but certainly “off menu” compared to what I have been eating for the last 47 weeks.
Friday night I ate Moroccan (extremely delicious) – fresh, homemade from this tiny joint called Poccadio in Indy. Saturday night I ate (what might be *the* best) Mexican food – again, fresh, homemade, mouth-watering Mexican food. I had this stuffed pablano pepper with chicken and cheese – OH MY! Sunday the girlies and I ate at a place called Chef Mike’s Charcoal Grill. Nearly everything on the menu is cooked on a charcoal grill – even the pizza! We had a pizza for an appetizer, and then I had the most delicious salad I have ever consumed! It was their grilled chicken strawberry salad. The salad had fresh strawberries and mandarin orange segments paired with charcoal-grilled chicken. The dressing was a homemade poppy seed vinaigrette…and I fell in love. Seriously.
Okay, so enough reliving my food frenzy…which, I should note, I only ate out once each day (dinner). For the other two meals (and snacks) I packed food and prepared in our hotel room.
As for weigh in…
That is 1.6 pounds down from week 46’s weigh in! Not too shabby for “off menu vacation eating”!!! I should also mention I have not worked out since last Wednesday night! That is a full SIX days of no hard work and sweating…and my body and mind are ready for it! I am getting right back in to the groove of things starting tomorrow with Denise. I am *seriously* looking forward to it!
How was your week?
