I am down 1.4. I was very happy with that, because I have still not gotten completely back on track. I am definitely at that point of the journey that I have been at so many times before. The part where I have always given up. I am determined that this time will be different - that I will persevere and reach my goal. I am so grateful for a husband who is not willing to give up on his weight loss goal, and therefore helps me to stay focused on mine. One of the many times that I wanted to eat poorly last week I was really fighting off a huge temptation. I called him and oddly enough he had just fought off the exact same food temptation. I asked him how he got himself past it and he said "I was just thinking about how good we are going to look this summer." Man, that was JUST what I needed to hear.
So, even though I have made very poor food choices today (VERY VERY POOR - Whopper Jr., poutine and Reese's peanut butter cups) I know that I will be back on track tomorrow.
It's off to the hotel in Toronto tomorrow at lunchtime, and then we head to the airport at 4 a.m. Thursday. The good thing for me with Cuba is that we go with my in-laws and they always want to go the same resort (they go twice a year) because they know the staff there and so we get really pampered. Last year when we went with them they upgraded us both up to suites for free, and they always held tables for us at all the meals (which is good since the restaurants fill up and its hard to have to wait to eat when you have little ones with you). This resort however (like many in Cuba) has mediocre food. That, I think, will really help me to not over do it while I am away. I think if I were going on a cruise or something like that I would come back with a big gain, but not Cuba.
Anyways, I'm off to have fun in the sun! Have a good week everyone!
