Twinks Gets Fit...

I love weekends, but do they love me back?

(The Hubs might pick up on a twist of a movie quote there.)

This is an impromptu McFatty Monday post...on Tuesday. My original MM post was on Sunday. Think I'm a little off this week?

I've figured out that during the week, I do great with following points. No problems and I can leave my flex points untouched for the most part. Friday night rolls around and...partay! Not really, but it's a bit more challenging. I did check points before dining at Red Lobster on Saturday with the Hubs and Little so that was a good change I've made, but Sunday? Ohhh, Sunday I threw caution to the wind (sort of) and had one of my favorite meals--Shrimp with Honey Glazed Walnuts over rice. YUM-MY. It sounded scrumptious and it certainly was, but there was probably a wiser dinner selection. Add to that a crab puff and a lettuce wrap...oh and a special chocolate and banana mini canoli type dessert and mmmm, a culinary triumph. Now. I only ate half of my dinner so I didn't waddle on my way out to the car, but since I had likely used all my flex points on cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster, it was like taking a payday loan on flex points.


The good news is that as of this morning, I haven't gained. Phew.

Now, another problem I'm running into is that I'm not very good about writing things down that I eat on the weekends. I have no excuse for this because it's easy enough to do. I just don't do it. At work I have my steno book in front of me and I can easily jot everything down, but I don't have a desk in front of me on the weekends and my fanny isn't super-glued to an office chair. That said, I need the accountability and I need to actually see the breakdown of what I'm eating. It's just too easy when I don't write it down to take a handful of a snack or mindlessly munch and not remember it two days later when I'm racking my brain for my food inventory.

So that's another goal this week. That and I'd like to start doing something extra exercise-wise. Perhaps some crunches on the yoga ball. Perhaps that would help the saggy tummy--speaking of which: Extra skin? Your services are no longer required.
