Happy Valentine’s day; Also known as our anniversary! 7 years ago today I married Rob. So Besides the weekly weigh in update, I am going to have a *small* trip down memory lane (so here’s a time line). 🙂
October 1997, Rob and I met and began hanging out with a bunch of mutual friends. By April 1998 we took a trip to see Aerosmith and “officially” began dating. Since I was in Corvallis and he was in Beaverton, it wasn’t too serious but still we weren’t dating other people. So in 2002 we got more serious again, and we began living together. By my birthday in April 2003, 5 years after we began dating we became engaged. February 14th 2004 we were husband & wife! By March 2005, Chandler joined our family! In June 2008, Lincoln completed our family!
Now back to the real reason for my post! Last week I missed workouts (doh!) but I also skipped ice cream (even if I had points for it). We also went out for dinner, a movie & Dairy Queen on Friday to celebrate the above. I was so freaked out, eating out! Rob told me not to stress on one meal, but I talked myself away from the pizza or breaded chicken parm, and had the Chicken Marsala and ate 3/4 of it. I guessed it was about 19 pts (Olive Garden’s Chicken Marsala was, so I used that to calculate the points). We went and saw The King’s Speech (AMAZING), and headed to DQ. Now I could have been good, but I did have Weekly Points and Activity Points, so I threw caution to the wind and had a Waffle Bowl. Only to find out it was 21 points! Yikes.
So after that evening, I was worried this morning. But I was down 2.8, for a total of 8.4! Woo! So I am 1.6 away from 10 lb! Can you guess what my goal is for next Monday? Yep, be down at least 10 pounds!
