I made it back to Jenny this weekend. Last weekend was super-busy and I just didn’t make it there. I was VERY happy to be back. It would have only been better if I had time to visit with my JCC Amalia. This week, I had to make a beeline for my hairdresser. With my new lighter locks, my appointments have become more urgent… so I had to scoot off to see Meggan to get my roots touched up.
Before heading north to the salon, I stepped on the scale and this is what I saw!
This Week’s Weigh In: -1.0 lbs
Total Weight Loss: -81.6 lbs
Amongst us friends, I know that I lost more than that… but I went to Happy Hour on Friday night with some friends. Eeks!!!
My dear friends Dawn and Marsha were in town on Friday visiting from Rhode Island. While I usually eat very carefully on Friday nights so as to not impact my weigh in, I hadn’t seen these lovely ladies in WAY too long and was confident I could resist temptation. I even stopped and ate Subway beforehand so that I wouldn’t be drawn to eat Mexican. We all know that Mexican is like crack for me. VERY hard to resist…
The Happy Hour was at the Rio downtown. If you’ve been to Colorado, you’ve probably heard of the Rio. It’s pretty notorious. They have an amazing patio, yummy fresh Mexican food, and FAMOUS margaritas!
Amidst the great company, there were certainly temptations lingering about….
Being a self-proclaimed chipaholic, you probably KNOW how hard this was for me. I had TWO bites of the guacamole (which was OUTSTANDING), and made unfortunate friends with the queso. I didn’t get a margarita (thankfully), but I did order a glass of wine. Just one.
Ohhhh… the queso. It was SO STINKIN’ GOOD. It was very likely a bowl of Velveeta with a few tomatoes tossed in. Why am I such a sucker for that crazy yellow cheese… you can almost taste the calories (in the very best way.)
Now, I know that the queso didn’t cause me to lose less weight… but I know that the extra salt that I consumed didn’t work in my favor.
In true queso fashion, I woke up the next morning with an upset stomach. That mean yummy yellow dip that I haven’t eaten in forever did a number on my stom. I just don’t eat things like that very often… and I pay the price when I do. I think we all do. It’s a nice reminder that I don’t need to indulge in queso again for a long time…
With my additional pound lost this week, I am now 9.8 lbs from my goal!!! I’ve got a weigh-in scheduled with Amalia next Saturday. Staying on track!
