We survived!


Anyhoooo, I'm sitting here posting from a hotel room in Mt. Vernon, IL.  We are over halfway to Arkansas!  

So I went to my first weekday morning WW meeting yesterday. BTW, I was down 1.4 lbs!  Woohoo!  It was nice - not too many people.  I got the impression people are playing hooky already. Anyway. That leader is one of the more inspiring ones.  She gave some good ideas for surviving the holidays. She suggested if we couldn't track right away to take a picture of our plate so we'd remember what we had. Brilliant!  that worked, too.  So I have challenged myself to track every single thing I eat during this trip.  

Today was scary.  I used 57 WW P+.  Breakfast at Tim Horton's (a 12 grain bagel BELT, Boston Cream Donut and iced coffee) Lunch at Cracker barrel (grilled chicken tenders, corn, tomato/cucumber/onion salad and 2 small biscuits that were too good to put down) and finally dinner at Denny's (veggies & a veggie burger) and also a couple 2 PP bars.  I could have made better choices at Timmy's but the 12 grain bagels are amazing.  

I totally didn't drink enough water, since I was trying to avoid making potty breaks every 12 miles. So I've been making up for it since we stopped.

But anyway, tomorrow is another day.  We'll be having breakfast here at the hotel and should be to Mom-In-Law's house by dark.  But anyway, the fam is already in their respective beds, watching SNL, so I better sign off now.  

Don't forget - next week the first 13 in 13 emails will be coming out - click over and check it out!



  1. I've been looking forward to the challenge!
