....can be derailed. Ever since we got home this week, I've struggled. I'm not sure why. Some of it has to do with the fact that I'm at home, not as busy as we were while we were gone. Another portion could be because I haven't had the chance to get my exercise in *I did get a walk in and I've been doing the abs challenge*, but it's not the same.
So my plan tonight was to have 1/4c of the Spinach Dip with 5 crackers, 3tbsp of light ranch dip and veggies, a serving of the sausage and lentil stew, and possibly some dessert. I ended up with far more of the spinach than I'd intended, I had garlic bread with my stew, and then turned around and had pound cake with strawberries. It is not one of my most outstanding moments, but I guess we're all human.
The first thing that I did when we got home *aside from getting the girls ready for bed* was to log my points. Let me tell you, even though I cut the cake into 10 slices, it was still 5 *yes FIVE* P+ per slice. Ouch!
I'm sitting here trying to figure out how I went from having a fantastic week away, watching everything that I ate, staying on plan in one of the most difficult situations ever, to coming home and having a super hard week. What's up with that? I was telling hubby that tonight didn't go as I had planned and that I was frustrated with myself, and he told me not to let it get to my head. He also told me that I need to remember not to let it affect the rest of my week. Isn't that what I tell people all the time? Maybe I'm rubbing off on him or he's rubbing off on me. Either way, I needed him to say that to me.
Even though I logged everything tonight, it can be a very slippery slope. I need to be diligent tomorrow. I need to get my exercise in. I need to pay attention to how much water I'm drinking *again*.
At the end of the day, I'm still me. And...I am only human.
