Monday and I'm smiling??

What's wrong with this picture?  Well, I'm still on track...eating healthy foods, working out, finding a nice balance between keep track of what I'm eating and not obsessing about what I'm eating. 

Yesterday brought lots of food - we celebrated my son's birthday so family and friends came to teh house.  He requested mac and cheese (and I will not make that from a box!) so I served mac and cheese along with a decent salad bar and several bowls of fruit.  It was uber healthy but everyone seemed to enjoy it! 

I did have part of a piece of cake - but refined sugar hasn't been eliminated yet.  I paid dearly for it with a stomach ache later though.  Just more signs of being on the right track in my mind. 

Weight is down to 198 but it seems so much less important these days.  Just making it through a day without the foods I'm eliminated seems like a win to me.  The shift in thinking has been interesting.  Mind boggling actually. 

I had a great weekend though - raced motorcycles on Saturday morning, watching motorcycle racing (Endurocross) Saturday night, son's party on Sunday and then watched a couple movies and just chilled last night.  It was a great weekend.

Coming up next weekend however is:  Kirkland Triathalon on Saturday, then a mad dash for Portland for my cousin's wedding, then we're doing a racing camp for motorcycles on Sunday and Monday and Tuesday will be a hang out/recovery day.  5 days packed with fun!!  I will probably have finished my "What they don't tell you about Gastric Bypass" by then and post that up in my absence...

I'm so excited for the future these days - and that my friends is the best news ever!!

TTFN,
LauraLynne
