We are off for a little vacation in a little over an hour and I am so not focused. I can picture all the BAD stuff I want to eat this weekend!

Oh no! This isn't the way I had wanted this weekend to be but I can tell it will be. For me the battle is all in the thoughts.....I am thinking fatty, salty and chocolatey today.

I did pack my fruit & vegetables along with bottles of water so I will still try to get these in but I plan on enjoying whatever it is I consume. BAD, BAD, BAD!

The scales will definitely be way up this Tuesday!
I will refocus on Monday night when we are back.

The whole family has been eating all natural, preservative and additive free for 9 days and some how I was up 0.4lbs today.
I admit that I wasn't tracking my points this week....that was obviously a mistake and I resumed today using the WW tools that I paid for back in December. I know in myself that .4 really isn't a big deal but I had hoped for a loss.
I am going away this weekend and staying with family so I know the food choices will not be the greatest plus we will be on the road eating in fast food places for a few meals. Two birthdays to celebrate this weekend.....birthday cake. My plan is to bring alot of fruits & vegetables plus bottles of water from home because my in laws do not have these things in their house so at least I know I will have healthy choices in the house.

My goals for the next 4 days are:
1)Drink 2.5L of water
2)Track all my food
3)Not to use any of my flex points
4)2 days of 30 minutes of exercise

While I am away I plan to:
1) Drink 2.5L water
2) Eat my 5 Fruits & Vegetables

My goal is to at least stay the same this week if not record a loss.

News from the Scales

Just a quick stop to report that I was down 2.4lbs this week!
Going to a new exercise class tonight here in my town, all ladies, should be fun!
We don't have anything like that here and I hope it lasts because many could benefit from this kind of thing.

Baking Bread

Today I am making bread! No more store bought bread in our house!
Whole wheat bread, white bread and hopefully some other recipe with Red River Cereal in it if I have time left.

I need to get some loaf pans so I can make smaller loafs like a friend had told me she does because right now I only use the bread maker and that is a huge loaf. Everyone loves it though so we eat a loaf a day.
This bread may be one of the foods that I will have to monitor my intake of. Most of the other stuff we are eating will not hinder my weight loss.

Another exciting day at our house, the children and husband are trying foods they have never had. So far everyone is doing great!

Cleaned House

So my husband is now on the same train as I am and we spent a better part of the day going through the cupboards and fridge to eliminate any and all foods with those bad for you chemicals in them.

The list of stuff we threw out was crazy but we should all feel better for it physically and also knowing that we are not putting into us 'things' that were never meant for human consumption.
I am sure we will still eat things here and there that are not the best but we took a giant step in the right direction today.

The cupboards and fridge look pretty bare right now until I get shopping and replenish them with healthy foods. I think it is going to take me a while to get use to buying the kinds of foods we plan on consuming. My shopping trips may be exciting for the next few weeks.

I began this adventure of eating 'raw' in January but have only been half hearted about it, now that my hubby is with me on this it will be easier.
