The challenge is to not weigh yourself every day. Now for the last 18 weeks, I have weighed myself every day. I know this, because yesterday, my Wii Fit told me that I hadn't missed a day in 18 weeks! So, as to not ruin my streak, Suzi told me I could do the body test every day with my eyes closed. I decided I would just stand on the board with my back facing the TV and have the kids push the buttons. They are not allowed to tell me anything that it says. So this morning, I did my body test, and i have no idea how I'm doing. I guess I am going to let this work on my psychologically!
Here's my plan, for this full week, I will live every day like I've had a 2 lb gain. That way, when I weigh in on Sunday, it will have to be down, right? If this gets me under that plateau that I've been farting around with, I will owe Suzi BIG time, and I'll end up keeping this up!
We had a good weekend here. Hubby had to work through the stupid snow storm that we had on Saturday. It was also his birthday. He was all excited about all of the presents he got for his birthday. He got his own EA Active Trainer 2 so that we can do that together and both have our movements tracked. He got an autographed picture of Zach Thomas (former player for the Dolphins) that said, Happy Birthday, Joel! Zach Thomas. He got a couple of books that he has been wanting. We had a party at the in-laws yesterday where they went sledding all day. Hubby's mom made him a chicken and dumplings soup for his birthday and I made a gluten-free (MIL gets migraines from gluten) vegan (FIL doesn't eat meat) potato bean rice soup for everyone else. I had made my own vegetable broth and added no salt. Everyone added their own salt when they ate it. I had used red and white potatoes, kidney beans, black beans and great northern beans, and a rice variety that had black rice, brown and red. It was a very appealing dish! We also had mustard greens. MIL made cakes that had eggs in them (THANK GOODNESS!) so I had none.
OH! I tried something new yesterday! It was Amy's Gluten-Free vegan Mac and Cheese. Now, mind you, I haven't had real mac and cheese for over 4 years. So the review may be a little skewed. OMGoodness! DELICIOUS! I was shocked at how good it was. Even though the noodles were rice noodles, they were pretty good! I felt all warm and comforted inside. I will definitely be getting this again!
This week will be busy, but I plan to keep up with all of my studies. Have a good one everybody!
