I am all about the alliteration in my post titles the last couple days. Anyways, so I lost 1 pound! I'm excited! Actually, a little disappointed that it wasn't more but I need to focus on the positive...I lost weight instead of gaining or maintaining. And, although I did well eating during the week, my weekend eating wasn't so good but on Monday I outlined what I need to do better during the weekend so I feel confident going into this weekend that I will do better!
Well, in other news, it's snowing here in DC! We might get up to 3 inches of snow but most weatherpeople are predicting closer to 1 inch. I heart snow! I don't like ice or sleet, but I love snow! I will NOT let this deter me from hitting the gym at lunch though! I repeat, I will NOT let this keep me from the gym at lunch! I am making this statement so you all will hold me accountable.
We have a bagel breakfast here at work in a few minutes. Our bureau does this every 3 or 4 months. They have bagels, donuts, coffee, and juice and it's basically a time for everyone to mix and mingle and catch up with what everyone in the bureau is doing. I think it really helps the top directors of the bureau. Since the top 10 or 15 people in my bureau work in a different building a few miles away, they don't always know what's going on over in my building. Anyways, it's kind of a nice tradition. In the past, I would say that I wasn't going to have a bagel but everytime I would cave and get a bagel (usually after I'd already eaten part of my breakfast and thereby putting me over on calories for the day). So I decided yesterday that I would change my usual breakfast menu to accomodate a bagel. Usually, I have oatmeal and an apple when I get to work (around 8:30) and then have a yogurt and a banana around 10:30. But today I had a yogurt when I got to work and then in a few minutes, I'll have a bagel at the bagel breakfast. So it works out b/c I know I get to have a bagel plus I still got some healthy protein and calcium in with my yogurt. Last Thursday I thought about getting a bagel as I was walking to work and then I thought, "No, I'm not going to pay for a bagel. I'll get to have a free one next week at the bagel breakfast and I'll be looking forward to it." And even though I love coffee, I will not have any of the coffee they serve at the bagel breakfast...it's atrocious!! Yech!!
Well, time to go get my much anticipated bagel! Later gator!
