Our Ski Week thus far

The good news: We're on vacation this week!

The bad news: I'm down with a sinus infection....

The good news: At least I didn't have to hassle with sub plans.

The bad news: Again. I'm sick on vacation. 'Nuff said.

The good: E and I have managed to see Slumdog and Benjamin Button. Wow! Amazing! However, although I liked Slumdog a lot, I feel it is a bit-overhyped. On the other hand, I enjoyed BB much more than I thought I would. Very bittersweet and I bawled. Both movies had multiple painful scenes, which is, sadly, why I tend to go for lighter fare usually (wimp!!!) However, I feel honored to have seen both movies.

The bad: My husband does not know how to take care of me when I'm sick. Last night I was really coughing and feeling sorry for myself. I wanted him to just chat to me about upbeat things, plans, etc., to lift my mood. He really felt stumped by this.

The good: My husband does know how to take care of me when I'm sick. E let me sleep in this morning. I woke at 10 and he was out doing errands, after dropping P at preschool. He brought me a starbucks too, although I'm sure he didn't approve of coughing and coffee. (Even with feeling yucka, it was gooood). Then he took me and Miss P to Marie Callendars for dinner, as I was craving some soup, cornbread, and pie. Even though none of those things are on my plan, I allowed myself to waver.

More good: I was proud of myself, for I ordered sugar free lemonade (instead of diet coke), and ate only half my soup and a quarter of the cornbread. I also shared a piece of 'no sugar added' razzleberry pie with E (instead of getting my own slice of regular), and I did not touch P's kid's sundae. At least my choices were moderate.

By the way, I've been playing a see-saw game, a few good food days, then off the wagon for a special meal. I'm learning to use my willpower and want to eat completely clean for at least a month, before moving to more of a moderation phase. Since there are no big holidays or events coming up, this might be the time. More on this later.

Stay well...

I think eating out would be the downfall of the diet. Of course, it really is with any diet.
I hope you feel better!

I heard Benjamin Button was really long and boring!
