Weigh In #7

It's Weigh-in Wednesday. The Shrinking Days of Summer is coming to a close soon. Today's weigh in went pretty well, down a little.

.2 to be exact. which isn't a lot when looking at numbers, but when we talk about how I am feeling and how the clothes are fitting, it is a good thing.

Now if I can keep that going. Today is going to be rather tough eating wise. I didn't have all my fresh veggies in the fridge cut up and ready to go. I haven't been grocery shopping to restock, and I really need to do it soon. I had high hopes of replenishing my stash of hummus for today's snack and making some yummy sweet potato fries. None of that happened.

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't a slacker. In my usually hectic and insane life, I ran multiple errands and as we were heading to the grocery store, it was that moment my son said "I have to go potty." Of course you do.

Rushing to make sure we didn't have any "accidents" caused me to forget to grab my list, and my coupons and then it all went to pot. I grabbed the absolute necessities to get through the night and that was that. We cruised home and it was dinner time. Thankfully my husband got home early enough to put my son to bed, and that allowed me to do my wii More Workouts. I even added in a few crunches and some chest presses and flyes.

Wrapping up my workout did not mean it was rest time for me. I am working on a surprise party and that is what consumed the rest of my evening's "free" time. When I finally looked at the clock and realized how late it was, and that my lunch was not packed, AND that there wasn't a whole lot to pack, I left it for today to worry about.


Today's lunchbox is not that exciting. It consists of slices of bread to make PB&J (NO it is not the natural kind, but it is the kind without High fructose corn syrup and won't cost me a fortune to purchase for my toddler who would eat it from sunrise to sunset - maybe when my husband gets a job we'll get the more expensive stuff). It does contain one apple and a container of peach sauce so my fruit is covered. Other than that, it's pretty sparse. I have been bringing two lunch containers packed full of bright colored veggies to eat. This seems so lame. Maybe I will find a few minutes today and run to the store. Without a toddler and with coupons in hand.

If I could just find a few more minutes to complete a few more tasks in this crazy life of mine, I could find a few minutes to relax too!


  1. Oh I know exactly what you mean! That ill timed potty break can through us off so easily. don't beat yourself up, sounds like you are making good choices with what you have available.

  2. its so hard when you don't have your list (or your coupons!) hopefully you'll get to the store and get stocked up.

  3. I think you did great despite your challenges! Your lunch box may be sparse but it's still healthy! Hopefully you'll get to the store!!

  4. Shopping with a toddler is my idea of hell. It's a race against time. I so feel your pain!

    Your lunch sounds pretty darn sensible in spite of the grocery run fail! Chin up!

  5. I know the challenges and interruptions of kids. Don't let it bring you down. And I agree with Heather, your lunch does sounds pretty darn good given the circumstances. Me? I'd have totally hit the drive-thru. ;)

  6. Thanks all for your comments. I am learning the ways of using movies to make my life easier while shopping. it was absolutely amazing how quiet he was having a movie in hand. I'll have to add some more "Word World" videos to the iPod and that can balance out the guilt factor there.
