Summer comes with activities that include not so good for my waistline foods. As a prelude to our summer vacation, we visited Fort Worth last weekend. (Check out Instagram for highlights from our excursion and look for an upcoming blog post about it!) We also dined with friends at our regular rotating dinner party held every other month. WeeWee left to visit family in the Northeast, and that had me indulging in Starbucks to and from the airport. Lattes are my comfort drink of choice if it is too early for a glass of wine! It was a comfort food week and weekend.
Walking all over the Stockyards, Fort Worth Zoo and the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport was the extent of my exercise this week. I don’t count chasing Little T around the neighborhood pool as much more than a day in the life of my SAHM world. The gym was only a figment of my imagination this week.
So, about my progress. It was minimal at best. I am not sure if it was the three nights out in a row that spoiled my plans of weight loss grandeur or my lack of will power; likely both. I had some losses, but not nearly as much as I had hoped for, proving this journey will be long.
Wednesday night was ‘girl’s night’ and shouldn’t be a dieting nightmare until the ½ price bottles arrive at the table and make drinking my calories oh so affordable. Maybe when we reconvene in two weeks, a nice morning jog the day of will counteract those Chardonnay calories.
I spent Friday night playing Bunco, and the etiquette of our Bunco group include bringing your beverage of choice and a snack of choice. Things I can control, but I skipped dinner in hopes the calories consumed at Bunco would be equal. I fear I was wrong.
