Cheaters ain't just a white-trash reality show

Sadly, the term cheater, also applies to me this week. Why, oh, why can't I just maintain this diet? I will say, I was doing really well until this weekend.

Brian decided he wanted to have a date night on Saturday, so we made arrangements to have Pappy and KiKi (Brian's parents) watch the babe, so we could go out for some mommy and daddy time. We started with dinner and some adult beverages at an Italian restaurant. The food was AMAZING! I endulged in Spinach and Artichoke Pasta. It was penne pasta and chicken, topped with a spinach and artichoke cream sauce. To. Die. For. Along with that, we had the ol' bread and olive oil dipping sauce. My guilty pleasure. Add on a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and you have a meal that was designed to clog every artery in your body...and I enjoyed every minute of it.

After dinner, we headed over to the movie theatre across the street. We bought two tickets for It's Complicated and made our way to the concession stand. Why quit stuffing our faces now, eh? I bought a box of Buncha Crunch and a large Mr. Pibb to share with Brian. Come to think of it, there wasn't much sharing going on on my end. The movie was hysterical, the Buncha Crunch were awesome, and we had a terrific date night, so I don't feel too bad about cheating...

Except, you see, that was supposed to be my only cheat night last week. Yesterday resulted in more shameful cheating though. I did really well for breakfast and lunch, but then I decided I wanted chocolate chip cookies for an afternoon snack. So I had 5. Then, for dinner, we decided we were too tired to make anything, so plans were made to order chinese food from the incredible Master Wok. Mmm! After chicken fried rice, crab rangoon, egg rolls, and more, I was stuffed. It was so good! I did feel kind of bad after that one though. Especially, since Brian has A LOT more to lose than I do and I'm just pulling him down with me.

Alas, maybe we can get it right this week. I'm actually content if I don't lose anymore weight before Hawaii, but it would be really nice too. I weigh 10 lbs. less than my pre-pregnancy weight, but I'd like to lose another 10 before we leave. I haven't lost any weight, but I haven't gained any either, which is awesome! I'm going to try to work a little harder at it this week. We shall see how it pans out.

Stats and goals for this week:
Current weight: 161
Goal weight by end of the week: 159
