Getting back on track...

Getting back OP the last few days has been harder than I thought. I was doing so well before vacation and the results I was seeing were so motivating, but I have been struggling to drink my water and avoid temptation - today I icked up a chocolate bar at the grocery checkout and then forced myself to put it back... instead I splurged on a back of Old Dutch baked creamy dill chips. They taste fantastic and are not too high in points if you can limit your portion (that is the problem!!!) The half empty bag is sitting in the kitchen cupboard wispering my name - but I have just filled up on fresh pineapple and strawberries so there is no room for chips. I counted the points for everything and after a walk with the dog for some AP I am within range for the day. I really want to get through this week without using my flex points and hopefully see a loss next week - I need the extra motivation that comes with seeing a lower number.. I am only 6 lbs from my ten percent and I really want to achieve that goal in May.

When I was away I completely missed that I had been tagged by Natasha

Rules of the game:
1. Link to the person who tagged you
2. Post the rules on your blog
3. Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog
4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs
5. leave a comment on their blogs so that they know they have been tagged

So here are some random facts about me:

1. I first met my husband when we were 12 years old - in my grade seven yearbook he wrote "you would be kinda cute if you didn't have all those freckles" we started dating 6 years later and have been together for 12 now, so I guess he hasa learned to love the freckles.
2. I am terrified of flying creatures (birds, bats, butterflies, moths) and will do anything to avoid being near them.
3. When I was a teenager I competed provincially as a Snynchronized Swimmer and Waterpolo player.
4. I love to sing kareoke and will often pull down the shades and sing away an afternoon.
5. I can sleep just about anywhere and can not control my falling asleep in the passenger seat of a car or a movie theatre.
6. I have 5 nieces from ages 1-13 and adore spending time with all of them.
7. I never eat onions... I like the flavour but hate the texture.. so I will cook with them but pull them out before serving.

I love reading fun little info on people!
Good luck with the Old dutch dill chips. I saw them in the grocery store and left them there because I knew I would sit and finish the bag in one sitting.
I know you'll be back on track in no time!

That was interesting! And well done on resisting the chocolate... it's those little decisions that bring us ever closer to our goal.
