Cheers to a New Week....

Monday morning....ahhhh

I very much dislike monday mornings...espceially since DH has MOnday off, while I must pry myself outta bed he gets to cuddle in and sleep some more...however tomorrow I'm not going to try and be as quiet as in the past cuz this saturday on my day off he woke me up at my 7am monday will be payback...

Other then not wanting to get out of bed, I never like all the voicemails and e-mails that await me on Monday....spend most of the morning trying to sort through them....however its the start of a new week/fresh break from the weekend...

Today DH said "you know what we havn't done in awhile"... "go out for breakfast..." I was like YEAH we havn't....mostly because I can't control myself at breakfast restauratns, so since WW its been off limits.... but anyways we went...and true to form I pig-ished out.... 2 eggs, 2 bacons, 3 french toasts w syrup, 2 peices of brown buttered toast....but I saved my day by only eating an apple in the afternoon, and then a 3point chicken breast and lots of homemade greek salad with no feta.....

My neighbor is training to be a message therapist she offered to give me a massage....which was nice...

in all it was a good weekend- it snowed a little which si always exciting..

Those breakfasts are lethal! And somehow I just never feel that they're value for money.

We went out to lunch at a Greek restaurant yesterday and I had the most delicious calamari salad. Divine!!

Have a great week!

Felicia said...

OOO I love breakfast foods too! Probably my favorite meal of the day as long as I eat it later in the day LOLOL.

Have a SUPER week!

I always think "I'll order something healthy" at the breakfast joint, but end up with cornmeal pancakes every time.

How great that your neighbor offered you a massage. Did you take her up on it?

Lidian said...

I hope you got that massage - that sounds really good!

I like those breakfasts too, and they are so hard to resist! There is somewhere we go about once a year where they have the most amazing toast, really thick. I love toast a lot!

Have a wonderful week!

Oh, I know the feeling. I absolutely love eating out for breakfast. Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, even McD's. Yeah, the prospects are never good. When do we ever prepare biscuits, eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, pancakes and hash browns all in one sitting. Oh, but it is yummy!

That's okay, It's one morning. You've been doing fantastic.

Heather said...

hope you survived monday! I also hate mondays!

It took me a long time to realize, actually over a year of being on WW that I can go out for breakfast, I now order from the healthy menu part and have found a place that has an awesome fruit platter cut up all fancy, served with a poached egg and whole wheat toast, ok it's not as great as bacon and fried potatoes, but you know what I leave the restaurant feeling great, full, satisfied and not sluggish from having eaten all the greasy crap. And proud of myself, I now realize just because I'm going to a restaurant doesn't mean it's a free for all!! I sometimes steal 1 potatoe from DBF and a piece of sausage and that's enough!

Great save on your day by making good choices the rest of the day, a lot of us would have said who cares I have already blown it, but not you!! Be proud!

Kickbutt job on the rescue mission for the day. I HATE going to Breakfast places, but I've learned to order an english muffin, egg creations instead of just regular eggs, and ask for only 2 pancakes if possible. SOmetimes that doenst' work out... but meh. We do what we can.

Swizzlepop said...

Could you slpit breakfast with your DH next time? This way you get to go out but there won't be so much damage. We have done that at a few restaurants where we would usually get our own meals and it works otu great and we eac hget adequate amounts of food. Just a thought so that you can still enjoy that time together.

I hope you got that massage. AHHH, great way to relax and refresh.

Great comeback though but eating yoru fruit and veggies the rest of the day. Most people usually just throw in teh towel for the day and start over "tomorrow" so you actually have more will power than you thought :)

Well, at least you salvaged your day my having smaller meals later on. A big breakfast always messes me up. Hope you are having a good week.

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
