HYC Update

This week was exhausting. Here's the quick and dirty:


Great:
  • Ate very well all week
  • Worked out a compromise with my brain to not feel guilty about eating certain foods (see post below)
  • Enjoyed a rich and luxurious birthday dinner with Katie and friends sans guilt.
  • At said dinner - the dessert was not that great. A chocolate and peanut butter tart that should have been heaven, but was too airy, light on the peanut butter and not sweet enough. So, my NSV of the week - I stopped eating it. I made a very good dent, trying to savor the flavor, but then I realized - why eat what isn't that great?
  • Attended Mr. Black's holiday party - held at a certain rock and roll museum in Seattle. We all wore jeans, and as I was going up the stairs, Katie gave me my favorite compliment of the month! She said "You look fantastic." I said "Oh, have you gotten a pair of the Lane Bryant Right fit jeans yet? They are amazing!" When she said no, I encouraged her to try some on, because they really are fabulous. She said "Sara, it's not the jeans." That girl is beautiful and generous, I tell you!

The not so hot:

  • Alcoholic co-worker was let go this week. They tried numerous times to encourage her to get help, to no avail. I was sad for her and her children, and I hope this is the impetus she needs to get help. So, I've been flying solo (we share a position) and spent 3 hours working overtime this week. I missed two work outs with Katie! Horrible! I owe her.

  • All this working is getting in the way of my blog surfing and commenting - so I'm going to work on that as well!

Amazingly, I am down 1.2 pounds to 230.8 this week. I don't know how, since I missed two work outs, and ate a rich dinner, but I am running with it.

Congrats on your loss! And I have to tell you, the NSV of not finishing the dessert - greatness! That is not easy, and you did it. Good for you!

Way to go on the loss and the dessert NSV - and the great compliment! I agree, a treat has to be top quality.

That party sounds really cool BTW!

Run with girl. You have a long list of greats and a very, very short list of not so hot things, which is the right way to go.

Hope you get some time off to workout.

wow - to stop eating something because it doesn't taste as good as it should is a major NSV! In my world, it would be something I'd think a 'normal' eater would do (and something I hope to do more of). Good for you.

You go girl! Well done on the loss!

I really like the way you evaluate your week. And good for you for pushing the cake aside when it wasn't exceptional. I'm starting to learn that too!

Yay for friends and compliments!

re: falafel...i didn't count, but i think it makes about 10 patties....i shape them like little hamburgers....

hope you like them!

Great Job. Way to stop in mid dessert. It's a great feeling to understand why something just isn't worth continuing to eat when you're not enjoying it!

Chubby Chick said...

Sounds like you had a great week! Congrats on the loss! :)
