For lack of a better title, yes it is Monday and the weekend went by much too fast. Weight is up .6 which I expected because I have been bloated since last night and my stomach was hurting today every time I tried to eat. I suspect it might be the goat cheese I had in my dinner last night that brings out the teeniest lactose intolerance in me.
The good thing about my stomach issues today was that I had absolutely no desire to eat cake. Yes there was cake today at work to celebrate a coworker's marriage and another coworker's new baby. It did look delicious, but I knew that one bite would sent me to the bathroom (sorry for the info!), and that was enough to motivate me to stay away, not to mention that I dont need all that sugar anyways. So this is the 2nd cake this month that I have been able to resist and Im doing well.
Tomorrow will the the monthly lunch out at work and the place we are going to doesnt have many healthy options, but Im hoping I can manage again like I did last month when we went to Culvers and I had to be clever in what i selected and made my own chicken salad out of a side salad and chicken sandwhich without the bun. It does take some planning, but it can be done and it was worth it last time, so hopefully I can have some success tomorrow as well and see that scale be down on Wednesday.
