I know I said I wasn't going to dip into my flex anymore until I had too, but I forgot about the fruit salad and shortbread waffers I had earlier in the day during all the travel. But, thankfully I remembered it after dinner. I still have 8 felx left. So I'm feeling ok. I wad dying for something "bad" for lunch, so I had it. Must have been the stress from flying with the two kids in an ice storm!!! lol

The only "obstacle" this week is Saturday. I have a women's event at church I'm going to and the theme is "pizza." There will be a million pizzas calling my name. I'm bringing fruit pizza. Don't let the name decieve you, it's not good for you. My plan is to basically skip the eating part. Fill up beforehand and just have coffee or something. I don't normally do that, but I'm going out later that night to a friend's birthday dinner and I'd much rather spend the points there. It's at a place that does fondue and wine. The plan is to eat something beforehand, but I will have some wine (2 glasses max) and maybe some chocolate fondue with fruit. I need to check out the menu and start planning. I WILL be successful this week! I have to remember that I don't have to miss out on the moment by giving into food when I'm reallly not hungry. That's a major issue for me. Eating has become such an "event" in my mind. I'm slowly conquering it, but that mindset still creeps up and bites me in the ass from time to time. If I can just step back and realize that pizza is just pizza and it will always be there if I really want it, then I can get past the "breakdown" moment.

I sat down this evening with my WW cookbooks and came up with a "game plan" for meals this week. I took note of what I had at hand in my pantry and frig and tried to be sensible about it. I tend to buy things like canned artichokes and let them sit in my pantry for 2 months without using them. I'm tired of being watseful and decided to buy as little as possible at the store tomorrow and make the most out of what I can. I came up with some good, point friendly dinners.

I'm sooooo glad to be back. Ed was trying to be economical and kept the thermostat at 62 while we were gone. So when we got home the house was freezing! Mind you- we have a house that was built in 1932 that has little insulation and all hardwoods. I felt like I walked into a cold warehouse. :) The kids and I got in a hot bath to warm up. lol It was funny. But it worked. It was so comforting to see Ed again. After the bath, the kids napped and Ed and i just layed on the couch with hot coffee.

It's 8:27pm (to be exact) here and my eyes are burning for sleep. Tomorrow it's back to my early morning gym runs. I'm looking forward to it. I'd like to break the 4 mile mark.

I totally hear you. Food is an event for me also. I look forward to my next meal like I used to look forward to smoking. Thank goodness I quit. I also eat when I'm not hungry and waste points. My thinking about the pizza thing too is to fill up on coffee ahead of time, eat an apple in the car on the way and maybe allow 1 slice? I know you are saving for your friends party the evening before. If you ever wanna chat, I'm at yeahwright@comcast.net

Thanks for the inspiration!
