Away for the Weekend!

Yes it's finally here! I am going away with my mom this weekend for my birthday!! As pictured above, we're going to Longfellow's Wayside Inn in Sudsbury, Massachusetts for a wonderful 2 night stay! Originally we were just going to go on Saturday but it looks like the weather is going to be nasty. So we're going to get out of town early! I'm super excited!! I made great choices for eating today. For breakfast I cracked out the Banana Nut vitatops which is a 100 calorie breakfast that filled me up ALL DAY! It has EIGHT GRAMS OF FIBER! Holy moley! Then for lunch I made some air popped popcorn so I can save calories for going out to dinner tonight and eating out tomorrow.

I know this weekend is going to be a bit of a challenge but my mom is supportive of my weight loss and we have activity planned into the weekend so I can stay on track even if I splurge a bit! I have my trusty pedometer at my side...so far I've already walked 1.8 miles without any planned activity! Woo! Time to work on that goal of making good choices when going out to eat!!

So far this week I have fulfilled this goal. On Wednesday I got my manicure and pedicure and then I felt like having Subway which is right down the road. I got a 6 inch Veggie Delight with provolone and had just a little oil and vinegar on it (for some healthy fats). It was a good, healthy, hearty lunch that really satisfied my craving some something spicy and yummy. Since I put lots of jalapeno peppers on it, it was extra spicy! The woman behind the counter thought I was a nutball.

Today I also had my supervisor with me on a visit and I felt very confident in my abilities. They go with us once a year for a supervision, which is a part of normal protocol. She had very positive things to say about my performance and how I deal with my patients. I felt like it was a good experience! So that was a good thing! And people were very happy and in a good mood today, so that's always good!

Here's to everyone having an excellent, stress free weekend. I hope that you all enjoy it and if the weather is bad in your area that you stay warm and safe!


  1. Have fun and happy birthday!!

  2. Happy birthday! Congrats on the good review at work, too. It's awesome that you have planned ways to make the trip another contribution to your healthy living. I hope you still relax and have fun though :) and if you treat yourself.. I hate to be a negative influence.. but it's your birthday! I just hope you enjoy it after having a couple of not - so - great weeks work wise.
