I realize that I get a little manic some times. I obsess about things, but I don’t really mean to.
I was complaining yesterday regarding the fact that we made a dinner date with some friends for Friday night, which always strikes fear in my heart because I weigh in for Weight Watchers on Saturday morning.
We went to a restaurant known for its fish dishes which made it a little tricky for the old vegetarian. Luckily, there was a decent salad option available. But it’s a little frustrating how many times people (the waitress) can say to you, “You’re a vegetarian, you eat fish right?” No, I’m a Vegetarian, I don’t eat Fish!
Luckily there was an appetizer I could eat.
Steamed edamame. The dish was quite huge and I ate quite a few before my meal, but I made sure they didn’t take the leftovers when they cleared the appetizer plates.
I asked for an entrée sized house salad and this was very good. It had hearts of palm which I hadn’t had in a very long time as well as a very tasty balsamic vinaigrette. I shelled the remaining edamame and added them to the salad. I have to admit that I ate 3 slices of bread which was some of the best bread I’ve had in a long time. Overall, Yummy!
So the question still remains, How did I do at Weight Watchers? I was quite pleased when I stepped on the scale. I lost a pound and a half! I was pretty excited. I like to think that my walking all week and my good food choices gave me this result rather than my craziness leading up to Friday night’s dinner.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to do my walk Saturday morning. It’s not good to exercise right before a weigh in. I had the time, but I didn’t want to take the chance. I had initially planned to do it later in the day, but the heat was dreadful, so I skipped it. I did go to the local mall with sister Ele and our friend Jim. We walked the entire mall top and bottom floors. I feel that was a pretty good walk.
I’ll be up Sunday morning and out the door at my usual time in order to keep myself on track.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and trying to survive the heat. I know that for me, I’m melting and I can’t wait for this heat wave to be over.
Happy Sunday!! Stay cool!
