Weekly Plan

The Captain is gone fishing all week.
Of course I'm missin' him, BUT it allows me the perfect time and opportunity to get back on track. This is what shall be done:

1. No drinking all week
2. Back to running every other day
3. Going back to yoga - it's been a while since the rib drama

I'm tellin' ya - just by cutting out the booze, I am putting it out there that I will drop 2 lbs this week. I weighed in on Monday at 134. I want to get back and stay at 130. Don't worry, I'm not obsessing about the numbers. I am actually quite pleased that after the last weekends festivities (that started Wed and ended Sunday night with Steak & Lobster) I am still at 134.

People always ask "How did you do that?" My answer is PORTIONS! When there is amazing food around, just have a few bites. And load up on the veggies/fruit. Honestly, I am not good at controling booze portions, but that's a whole different Oprah!

Yeah, the booze will get your every time. You're brave axing it for a week LOL

Alisa said...

Sounds like a good track to be on. I need to go to yoga too! Do you notice that if you're away from it for too long that you hip flexor muscles tighten? That's where I notice it the most.

(absence makes the heart grow fonder...right??!!)

Jennifer Burgett said...

I can believe the no booze=2 lbs. Grr. I think I'm going to go in an official "cut back" during December. I don't eat too badly, but the booze really packs it on.

D10 said...

I have such a hard time with portion control. It is something I really need to work. Looks like you got it down.

You must be looking forward to getting back to yoga.

J~Mom said...

I am seriously thinking about getting a job at the Bikram place here! I would quit sports and become a yogini!

Xenia said...

I second all the nosey comments above. Tell us! But only if you want to.

Sarah said...

Ok good. I'm not the only one, I thought I had totally missed something... The Captain? Very intriguing...

Carolina John said...

a whole different oprah? LOL I know what you mean about portion sizes. We try to load up the good stuff, but it's not always easy. Good luck getting the 4 lbs down.

M*J*C said...

Sounds like you've got a good plan! Who needs Oprah when we have POM!!!!!

carrie said...

Sigh. This is just what I needed to hear. The wine extravaganza after Portland has continued with the wine we shipped home...and I wonder why I'm up 4 lbs.

Michelle J said...

It's amazing the things that can be accomplished when a significant other isn't around for a few days:)

chia said...

I was going to ask the same question as heather ;-). **Insert smoochie noises here**

You'll be down in no time! I'm off the bottle until the holidays... I so need to lose like 15 or 20. I hear mooing sounds when I look at my thighs *ugh*

the Bag Lady said...
