Mamavation Monday-The Incredible Shrinking Woman

This week was a long one. Riddled with victories and minor setbacks.

First things first. I lost 0.4 lbs this week. Kind of disheartened about that, I stayed on target (Weight watchers)all week and worked out (TurboJam and TurboFire Hybrid). So I'm down a total of 5.4 lbs in the last 3 weeks. Not nearly as much as I'd hoped. :\

All of this week, I've been really nervous. My unemployed husband was offered a job for less than half of what he was making before and he took it. Kinda peeved about that. He starts today. This now leaves me with the emotional turmoil of fearing for his safty (I don't want to disclose what he'll be doing, but it involves having to carry a firearm--and it's legal--[if you have to carry a gun, that makes me think that you are signing up to be shot at--worried]), and who is going to watch our son. But I have not turned to food. I'm a nervous wreak, but still have not sunk to emotional eating. I refuse to let this derail me from getting healthy. So I'm counting that as a victory.

Also, we spent yesterday meeting my husband's 1/2 sister, and her daughter for the first time. He comes from a long line up of illigimate children on his father's side (winner i know-he doesn't talk to his dad). Which of course lead to eating since we got together for lunch. What I had, wasn't the greatest for me, salad with FF Italian and LF Feta, chicken tenders breaded in RF Cheez-its, and tater tots, but I watched my portions. The down fall was the cake. I didn't check the calories on it before I ate it--I should have. 400 FLIPPIN CALORIES. I wanted to throw up. But I ate it, and got back on the wagon for dinner. The first time I haven't let one meal ruin my whole day. So I'm counting that as a small setback with a HUGE victory!

Today, I'm still on the wagon. Eating lots of high fiber fruits and veggies, oats, whole grains, and my FAV Chocolate Peanutbutter FiberPlus Bar for a snack! Yum Yum Yum! If you want to check out the Fiber Plus bars here they are

Wishing you all a fab week!

  1. I totally think you should count this as a victorious week! You had so much going on and DIDN'T TURN TO FOOD!!! Woo hoo!!!

    Congrats on the loss :) 0.4 is still a loss :)

  2. Stay on the wagon! Find your seatbelt! You had a loss and that is what counts good for you!

  3. A loss, is a loss... is a loss. You didn't gain, and didn't maintain. Next week might be even more, but it WILL add up.

    Isn't cake crazy? It calls to me... and just wants to get in with my hips. I am not sure that delicious cake and low calorie have ever met.
    I hope you have a great week! Keep up with it, it will pay off in the long run.

  4. Stay on the wagon. Wagon is good. Food might be evil sometimes (when it's a comfort food), but you know how to avoid it, don't you. Good luck this week!

  5. I agree with Shelley, there was a lot to stress about and turn to emotional eating but you dealt with life. Good job! I hope this week is better. Much better.

  6. congrats on conquring bad calories and getting back i ned to get back on the wagon sure i do great some meals but my snacks are like runaway horses they go to fast for me to slow them down.

    have an awesome week
