I Think I Can!

A new week upon us which means new challenges have arisen. Before I discuss my challenges though, I wanted to share a bit about my weekend. It wasn’t very eventful, but I did get a lot done! I did the photography for a wedding a month ago and I finally finished editing all of the photos yesterday. It felt good to be finished with that project and I am excited for the bride to see my work. It seemed as though when I wasn’t editing photos this weekend, I was taking them. I had a quick engagement session on Saturday and fall portraits for my sister on Sunday. Maybe I’ll get permission to share a few of my sisters on here because I was really happy with the shots! My sister is my favorite subject for photos because she’s always willing to go through with my crazy ideas.

A part of my Last Chance Challenge is to weigh-in weekly. I ended last week weighing in at 242.2 lbs. That’s a loss of 5.8 lbs for the week! Not bad for my first week back from our vacation.! I am hoping to get out of the 240’s by the end of this week.

As for the challenges that I was referring to, there are quite a few:

Monday: Girls night in
Tuesday: Business Trip
Wednesday: Bridal Shower Favors at in-laws
Saturday: Birthday Party for Grandma
Sunday: Baby Shower

Tonight, after work, I am going to visit one of my friends that I haven’t seen in a few weeks. I am grabbing a bottle of wine and we are going to talk about our recent vacations and just catch up with one another. She is making macaroni and cheese for dinner and asked if she should make enough for the both of us and I declined. I am going to be eating a late dinner tonight, by the time that I get home, but I brought a salad to eat on my break at work which should hold me over.

Tuesday, I am going out of town for business. It’s a day trip and my coordinator is ordering pizza for the meeting. Pizza I can deal with, but that’s not the worst part! The snacks for the morning and afternoon were open to everyone as a potluck. We have people bringing donuts, brownies, cookies, chips and all sorts of goodies. I am planning on packing a salad to eat with my pizza during lunch, but the snacks will be hard to avoid. I am going to do my best and may even bring some carrots for a snack of my own.

Wednesday, I am going to my mother-in-laws to help make some baby shower favors for my cousin-in-laws baby shower. I offered to bring a bottle of wine and I’m sure that there will be snacks there, too. I am going to quickly run home to make dinner after work, then arrive with a full stomach to avoid eating the unknown goodies that may or may not be there.

Saturday is my grandmothers birthday party. Cake and ice cream is pretty much a given. My dad is hosting the birthday party so that also means that lunch will most likely be provided. It may be another round of pizza/wings or maybe even Chinese. It’s hard to tell and I’m going to just have to do my best in that situation, too.

Sunday is my counsin-in-laws baby shower which will have potato salad, broccoli salad, pasta salads, etc. Not to mention, more cake!

Basically, if I am able to get down in to the 240’s by the end of this challenging week, I am going to be very proud of myself! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!
