Loss from last week: -2 lbs
Total Loss: 3.5
I'm very happy with this loss. I missed one day at the gym for no good reason other than not feeling well. My diet was incredibly on target, even while traveling over the weekend. So some stuff:
My Feel Good Parent Moment: My oldest daughter, Maddie, has expressed an interest in cooking. She either wants to own a restaurant or become an astrophysicist. She's only 9 so right now, she's thinking both. LOL. So Santa brought her a cookbook and set of kid knives for Christmas. She cooked her first dinner for us last week...Honey Soy Pork Chops, greens with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing and vegetable dippers. It was delicious and healthy. I'll be honest. Not all the recipes in the cookbook are the healthy variety and that's OK. I think the important thing is teaching her the cooking skills that will help her later...measuring, cutting, cook times, properly preparing meat, how to follow a recipe, etc. We decided our one cheat meal a week would be whatever she decides to make. She picks a recipe before we go grocery shopping and makes a list of everything she needs. My husband helps with the oven, stove, etc but otherwise she does it all herself.
Over the weekend, we went to Tallahassee for the girls' first gymnastics meet. They did really well and I am one proud mama.

We drove home Saturday night and while exhausted, we were happy. Sunday we took the girls to a newfound playground and park that includes a nature walk. We spent several hours there and played extra hard with the dog to make up for her being at the boarding place Friday and Saturday night.
Tonight, I leave for Atlanta for a business trip. I'm going to try to make the best decisions I can. It's always difficult when meals are being catered in and you cannot always order individually. I'll do my best but not beat myself up. I'm bringing a long some healthy snacks for the plane and hotel room just in case I get munchy.
Hope y'all have a fabulous week and are enjoyed your weekend and family as much as I enjoyed mine. :)
