Late Healthy You Challenge Week 32

Down a pound today which makes me happy. Especially after having dinner at my grandparents last night for my grandmas birthday. It helped that I didnt like most of the food that was there, and ended up having 2 thin slices of pork (which I dont like at all!), and a huge serv of broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower. I passed on the corn on the cob (which I do like but know would have caused a gain), mashed potatoes (again, love but passed on), and gravy. Dessert time came around and I passed on the red velvet cake, and instead had some angel food cake with strawberries and low fat cool whip which was delicious! Had one glass of wine, and by the scale, Ill say I did well.

I am a day late on the HYC and did not weigh in last week since I was on my trip, so I dont really have a comparison weight. I have worked out 2X which I definitely am not pleased with, but things have been wild and I need to get on a schedule again. Things at work were slow for a while which was nice because I could get home earlier and have time to exercise. Now things are crazy again and Im getting home later and later. I just need to focus on the little ways I can get that exercise in and I know I will be up to 4-5X a week again soon.

Congrats on the good food choices! Angel food cake is amazing, isn't it? It seems like it "should" be a bad choice. I love it with berries and cool whip, too.

You have made great accomplishments and you should be proud! Being able to cope in the face of chaos is a step in the right dierction! It's better to learn this earlier in life than later. Way to go! :D

Gosh, you are so disciplined, passing on all those foods that you like! Good for you!! I went out for dinner with a cousin who was visiting yesterday, and I ate everything I was served (and I will not even talk about the alcohol)! Needless to say, the scale and I are keeping our distance from each other today :-)

Now see, I would've skipped the cake and gone with the corn. :)

The red velvet cake is going around, everyone's mentioning one it seems. You're doing great! How good you were at avoiding the things that wouldn't serve you goals!!

Congrats on the loss. Oh yummy! Angel food cake has always been my favorite, and with strawberries and cool whip! Well, it doesn't get much better than that for a low cal dessert.

Angel food cake with whip cream and strawberries sounds so yummy! I love angel food. It sounds like you made good food choices. Hope work calms down again so you get those extra workouts in..my job is driving me crazy these last two weeks, too.
