Day 1...and oops, there goes the wagon

My baby sister and I have decided to be each other's support group for shedding some pounds after getting on our bathroom scales yesterday and being very unhappy with the results. She's up 10 pounds in 2 months, I'm up 8. Neither one of us is happy. So I spent a ton of time last night preparing a healthy meal plan for the week since I was going out grocery shopping this morning. And I managed to stick to it...until dinnertime.

That's when it got derailed.

Alicia had a meeting with someone at the company she worked for last summer. Basically, they want her to work for them (in a different department) full-time until she goes back to school (or later if she ends up not going back; if nobody is going to be in dorms, she won't have to go back early for her RA duties). Completely at home during that entire period even if the office re-opens, and paying her $20/hour. Which, for what is being called an intern position, is pretty damn good.

So Craig wanted to celebrate with food.

I mitigated the damage eating out could've caused by pushing for sushi. It wasn't as good a choice as what I had planned (which is now tomorrow's dinner), but it could've been a lot worse because smothered burritos and barbecue were both brought up at one point. And then we all got into the pool for an hour and a half where I made sure to do plenty of arm and leg exercises. I still expect the scale to be pissy in the morning, but it could've been a lot worse.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :)
