Happy Easter Everyone

Each holiday for me is a new experience. It is a new test of trials and temptations. Good or bad the choice is mine to make. Do I give in to temptation or rise above it? Hmm...what to do?

Candy, candy and more candy. Easter isn't as a big a candy day as Halloween but pretty darn close. I am usually not a candy person but I LOVE Twix and at this time of year they have Sweet Tart jelly beans. I am addicted to them and I bought 3 bags. Yeah I know, not a good choice. I have only eat 4 little beans so far. Not too shabby as far as I am concerned. I got my fix.

I bought exercise tubes yesterday. I think I get more of a workout from the tubes than I do from hand weights. I worked out with them today and my arms are sore already. It's a good thing.

I am going back to classes on Tuesday/Thursday this week. I am now back to normal. No longer sick and ready to get back on the horse so to speak. I need to keep this momentum going.

Weight loss is still really slow and at a standstill right now. I gained a few pounds last week but I was swelling quite a bit. Both my legs swelled. Now they are back down and my weight is back down where it was. I have to keep an eye on my water weight too. I am still trying to figure ou what caused it. The only difference is I took my lunch all week and didn't eat out once. The only other difference was that I wore dress shoes/sandals all week. I usually buy casual day stickers and wear jeans and my Nike's. I tend to swell when I wear dress shoes. Go figure.

Oh well, a new week. We are having food day on Wednesday so I am a little concerned on that. There is going to be a lot of snack foods. Buffalo chicken dip, sausage cups, cake, chicken salad, taco dip, veggies and dip etc. I don't have a lot of restriction right now so I don't want to overeat. I can eat comfortably and don't want to over do it. Whatever happens, if I am able to eat tons of food I will go back for a fill otherwise I need to learn to back away.

Wish me luck...

I think I would hate working where you work! It seems so much revolves around food and for us bandsters, that really sucks!
I suggest having an all protein breakfast and you won't do so much damage at lunch.
Good luck!
