c'mon now

note to self: eating-out 3x in one week isn't a good idea when you're trying to lose weight (or maintain for that matter)... i know it's only 1 pound, but i forgot how crappy it feels to gain two weeks in a row... BUT on the bright side - the good news is, i am wearing a pair of pants that were tight about a month ago so i know progress is being made even if the scale is being mean to me today... i met a girlfriend for dinner last night - she chose whole foods and before you laugh - i was surprised at how wonderful their salad and hot food bar was... though it's not cheap ($8.99/lb), there was a good selection of veggies, meat, and starches (the veggie lasagna was awesome!) so i had a bit of this and a bit of that, and some great girlfriend company to boot... :)

the weather forecast says it will be in the low 70s today - perhaps i should go for a walk and enjoy it while it lasts... they're also saying it might snow this weekend, which is not surprising considering i was going to head out to see my sister and dad (3-day weekend)... perhaps if the weather is too bad - i can stay home and pack... my place is full of boxes right now so i guess that means it's time to start filling them up... :)

not much else has been going on - sorry that the blog has been rather boring these days... hopefully i'll have more stuff to talk about once it gets closer to moving day... i did get my new checks and address labels yesterday - they are very cute so i can't wait to start using them... :)

happy hump day...

Don't sweat the gain and keep up the good work!

The best thing about eating out - is once you slow it down or stop it -- the weight tends to fall off. So keep your head up and keep pushing - plus all of the moving and packing will give you some AP's! Do you mind if I ask where you got your cute address labels and checks? We need some new ones and I haven't found any I like yet! Thanks!!

I'm sure that pound won't be sticking around. Great news about the pants, obviously you are doing the right things.

70 degrees oh how nice! I'm jealous. Enjoy that walk.

Eh, what's a pound? You're still going good and, in any event, the pants test is much more reliable.

I know what you're saying. It's just a pound but something about eating out always makes my pants tighter too. You're a rock star...you're still doin' it!

My friend and I love to go to WF for lunch.
Here, they have the best sandwich.It's called the Mother Earth-avacado, tomato, hummus, sprouts and more. They make the bread for it and it is the best.
(the WF in Las Vegas didn't have it)
We split it and either a cup of their lentil soup or a salad.
We also like the vegan brownies at the salad bar-we tried one just to taste it and now it's out "treat"

Hope the moving is going well!

I like whole foods. At least at ours they have a huge selection of stuff, tons of bad stuff, and a lot of good stuff too. Bad as in unhealthy.

Thanks for the comment on the Max blog. We have 38 days give or take a few. Crazy huh?
