Facing the scale

I rushed to Captain Mom's house Sunday morning to weigh in for the last time for the next couple of weeks. I figured I needed to face the music with my gain from my poor food choices. By some MIRACLE OF GOD, I had neither gained nor lost. I will take a plateau gladly for my bad choices. I am hoping to improve this week in the following ways:

#1- Eliminate all ice cream from the house until after November 1st. I know this doesn't seem like an outrageously long time, but for me, an ice cream addict, it is. I was reading the featured loser of the week, Lisa Kay's story on Tales and it really made me reflect when she talked about not having ice cream in her house. I need to break this very bad habit. And the best way for me to do that currently is to not have it available. Until the habit of having it everyday after dinner is broken. After the week is over, I will reevaluate.

#2- Get back into my Pilate's/strength training. I've been running, but have found that I am having a hard time keeping up with my 3x/week pilates. I need to plan this time out (nap time works best for me) and honor myself by taking the time to do the work.

#3- Bake. I know, you look at that and think that's setting me up for failure. The reason I am adding this to my list of things to do is because I love to bake. I love the smell of it and the bonding time it allows me to have with What Not To Wear. So, my goal is to bake something this week, just her and I sharing some time in the kitchen. It allows me to slow down and do something with her that we both enjoy.

In case you didn't know:

Starting weight: 168
Last weigh in weight: 133
This week's weight: 133

We'll see you in two weeks, when I'll be able to weigh in again!

I'm so glad I read your post! It sounds a lot like me. I can't have ice cream in the house, either. It is totally a red light food for me. If I get out of the habit, I can *maybe* have some mini ice cream sandwiches in the house, but that's it. And I love baking, too, and it's my older daughter's fave thing to do with me. I just have to tell myself to not start with the still warm from the oven stuff, because that's another red light for me. And, hey, why didn't I think of exercising during nap time?!? You're so smart!!
