Wagon? What Wagon?

I don't even know how it happened! One minute I was on the wagon and the next minute I fell off... maybe hit my head on the way down!

The last week has NOT been good at ALL for eating. It could be that Aunt Flow is in town and I've wanted to eat the wallpaper off the walls (thankfully I don't have any wallpaper in my house). I'm up THREE pounds, UGHHHHH. This is not good...not good at all. So today I'm back on plan! NO EXCUSES!

I already had a delicious egg mug, a version of the Hungry Girl All American Egg Mug which I posted a while back. It's very filling and protein rich! And then my mom is coming later this afternoon and we have a big walk planned! I'm also doing the housewife workout today. Activity is on the plan for today!! And then tonight I have already put in my calorie levels since I'm having some leftover pasta sauce and low carb pasta, salad, and a 4oz glass of wine. I already know that I can make excellent choices! Now I have to DO it!

So...you're probably wondering how my date with Brian went. Or maybe you aren't but I'm going to tell you anyway! It was nice...I'm struggling now with the fact that I don't feel this overwhelming sense of passion when I'm with him. He's nice. And he bought me THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS I've ever seen.

How amazing are these flowers?

We had a nice dinner, cooked by me. I made my famous spaghetti sauce. It's kind of from a family recipe but I make it my own. And everyone loves it! Even my grandmother who wrote the original recipe! It simmers all day on the stove (or in a crock pot) and gets thick and delicious and perfect! Brian loved it! And then we decided to watch a movie and he chose Bridesmaids. Which I forgot how raunchy that movie is, oops! Afterwards we had some dessert and we kissed. I don't know wha I was expecting. It was nice...but I didn't feel any chemistry. It was just nice.

So now I have to figure out where this is going. I think a few more dates are in order just to see where we stand but I don't know! Any advice for me? I feel like I'm not experienced enough in these matters to make decisions...which is new to me! Because in my career and in my life, I MAKE decisions on a daily basis. Life and death decisions sometimes! So not knowing what to do is consuming my thoughts...

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Back on track for me today!


  1. Get back on the wagon missy! And try not to worry too much about the 3 lbs, it could just be the water retention. But do the work: track what you eat and put sweat time in! Good luck!

    P.S. Could you please remove word verification on your comment settings for the duration of the challenge?

  2. I think you need time. Sparks don't always fly right off the bat, but that doesn't mean it's not possibly the best thing ever. :)

    Also, just get back into your rhythm. Don't stress. Just do. :)

  3. Grrr, typed up a comment then my internet crashed and I lost it - hate that! Anyways....
    I know you will find your groove again, you have come too far to be dragged along by that darn wagon, so get back up on it chicka!
    About Brian - no idea, I am the last person to give advice. I married a man I didn't love out of insecurity, so yeah, not a clue. Just follow your instincts.
    The flowers are gorgeous!

  4. I have a philosophy on men and dating that as long as you dont do anything you're not comfortable with (and it sounds like you are great about your boundaries and comfort) then nothing is lost by exploring a relationship. But ask yourself what is your internal deadline... maybe after X more dates, you want to decide :) Good luck!

  5. If all the time I've been reading your blog is any indication I know you will get back on the wagon very soon! I have faith in you :)

    About Brian - I have always been the kind to need to feel that spark early on. If I don't I feel like I'm making up passion just to be in a relationship, but that's just me. I would set a number of dates to decide if you want to stay friends or not. And who knows, maybe if you are just friends something will develop down the road if it is really meant to be :)

  6. Yay for getting back on the wagon!!

    As for your dating situation-- I would say go on at least 1-2 more dates and see how you feel. Sometimes, the first kiss is just weird. Everyone has a different kissing style, so sometimes it takes a few times before both parties learn how to kiss each other. I will say that chemistry DOES matter, so if you don't feel it after the next couple dates, then you don't feel it.

    I'm not a fan of putting a number on things. But I am a fan of giving someone a few more chances before you decide you just want to be friends.

  7. I can not tell you the number of times I've heard from people who have been together a long time, that they really didn't know if they "liked" each other when they first met! So give it a little time and see where it goes. Follow your gut instincts. A women's intuition is renowned!!!
