Wow that week went by so fast! There was all sorts of activity, a night out with my co-workers, date night with my husband and a good weigh in. It's nice to know that I can face challenges and come out ahead!
The week did really go by so quickly. Monday and Tuesday were super busy at work and on Tuesday I didn't get my mid day walk in, but I made up for that in the evening. I've discovered that I have to have a contingency plan in place so that I can be successful. Wednesday was a great day for activity and managing a challenge. My Boss at work celebrated her 50th birthday last week and as a group a decision was made to take her to a spin class taught my another of our coworkers and then drinks and appy's afterwards. I didn't feel that I was up for a spin class, I'm getting in shape, but to be perfectly honest, my caboose is still much bigger than the average person's and I don't think I would have had the stamina to keep up. I decided that instead, while they were at spin class I would go for a power walk and then meet up with them. So after work, when everyone else headed out for the spin class, I found myself power walking through downtown. I decided to walk to the restaurant to scope out the parking situation and then back to the office to change and get the actual car. I did about 3km's in just under 40 minutes which was great.

Then for dinner I had scoped out their menu before hand and knew that I was going to order a salad with a grilled chicken breast on it. I had salad for lunch, so I knew that I needed to get some protein in. Here's where having a contingency comes into place. We got the restaurant to find out that their oven had died and that they couldn't serve quite a few of their menu items. One of the items was what I had chosen for dinner. I had to change my plan and was a little nervous as I was trying to stay as close to on plan as I could, especially considering that I had weigh in under 48 hours!
Turns out I didn't have anything to be nervous about. The points I had available for my dinner were 22, and I ended up using 16.. That made me feel great.
It paid off on Friday, when I went to weigh in I was down a pound! I'm only 2 oz away from having lost 65 pounds. So yes, those pesky 2oz have shown up again, but that's all right, I'll show them who's boss next week!
