Monday Weigh-in!

239, with some wobbles to 238.

And this after a weekend that included pizza and McDonald's and no exercise whatsoever, even though I probably would have had time to do some.

I am still trying to make healthy choices and exercise portion control when I can't. So far it seems to be working, but it takes a lot of willpower! The slow drop of the numbers on the scale is helping quite a bit though.

Yesterday we went grocery shopping. I wanted to get Slim Fast to have for lunch, since breakfast is going to be peanut butter bagels. Imagine my surprise to see that all of the Slim Fast was gone! Apparently it's been voluntarily recalled by the company that makes it. Something about a microorganism that can cause vomiting and diarrhea and stuff. Yikes! And to add further insult to injury, the other available products had no chocolate versions in stock, which is the only flavor I really like. Grrr, they just have to make this even harder, huh? There wasn't much to choose from, but I got some Atkins shakes anyway, in strawberry and vanilla. I haven't had my first one yet, but I hope they're better than the Slim Fast versions of those flavors. And I hope that Slim Fast gets their act together and gets their product back on the shelves!

Try adding a little flavored extract to the vanilla ones if you don't care for the vanilla taste. That perks 'em right up!
