And the Losing Streak is Over

Not really working out for 3 weeks and TOM put a halt to my losing streak.  I weighed in Tuesday night with a 2.2 lb gain.  The last gain I had was November 26th.  If I'd waited until Thursday again would the scale be different?

This weekend I ate my first salad since I was out of bread - ham, cheese wedge (Aldi's equivalent of the Laughing Cow brand), ranch, and a bunch of lettuce (Aldi's artisan blend I believe).  On a sandwich I'd normally have either cheese (the wedge or cream cheese) or ranch not both.  I had to have both for added flavor.

Monday night we went to Aldi's and Kroger.  I got just about everything on the shopping list (less the stuff I didn't want) for the recipes I'm trying.  This meal planning venture doesn't save me money; it costs me more!  That list was for 6 dinners, two being freezer meals.  We spent more than our normal two week's worth of groceries.  What in the world did I do wrong?

There was a bread shortage at both stores. The sandwich slims I buy at either place for under $2.  Aldi's had none and Kroger only had the name brands that were $3+.  I'm not willing to pay double for a regular purchase item!  I got Flatout bread instead.

Week 3 of  Weight Watchers' New Year, New You Challenge is moving more.  Whatever your current activity level is you're supposed to add 5 minutes more per day.  Since the vertigo happened I never settled on what workout I'm doing next.  Pretty much everything I had checked out from the library to try will need to be returned before I have a chance to complete the program.

Things have been so off lately I realized it's time to take my measurements again!  I doubt there's been changes this time around but we'll see.
