Anyway... I digress... Historically, road trips have been full of junk food or fast food and as many sugary sodas that you could stand. When Dan and I travel together it seems easier to stay on plan but since I was by myself I was really worried I'd fall into my old ways. To combat this I portioned out Nilla Wafers (3 PointsPlus/8 crackers) and Special K Sour Cream 'n Onion crisps (3 PointsPlus/30 grams) into plastic containers before I left. I also packed my food scale and some slimwich buns because I knew there would be some kind of burger lunch.
The drive up went really well. I found a Subway where we stopped for lunch (for me) and potty break (for Briscoe and me). We stopped again in Onalaska at the Woodman's because I wanted to look for the new WW deli salads (really good but be warned there are 2 servings per container). Then we drove up through Winona, MN (beer stop - shocking I know!) and then, finally, to Mom and Dad's house.
Mom had dinner ready when I got there and that was pretty healthy. Then I took Briscoe on a walk so he'd be good and tired. That's when we hit the first snafu of the weekend. My parents live in the country and on our way back we met a skunk. I immediately pulled Briscoe (who normally walks on a retractable leash) back to me and turned around to go the other direction. Luckily I had my cell phone and a signal (which in the country is a god send) so I called Mom to ask someone to come and pick us up.
Saturday morning started with an early walk with the dog but luckily no skunks and a quick shower. Then we got to work - talk about a long day!! Lunch was 1/2 pound (pre-cooked weight) venison burgers (mixed with some pork and spices) that were really good. However, they were HUGE! Dinner was the same (good thing I packed two slimwich buns!!)
When we met up with the skunk on Friday night I must have twisted my knee or something because when I was walking on Saturday it was sore and throughout the day it continued to get worse. I decided not to walk on Sunday to give it, and me, a break. After packing up the meat that we'd made the day before and packing up the car to come back we were off. That is where I hit the other snafu of the weekend. I was tired and it is a L-O-N-G drive back. Briscoe was apparently as tired as I was because he slept (and snored) almost the entire drive home. By the time I made it home I was so tired I didn't even care to track points and I was asleep by 6:30 pm.
So, the big question - did my weight gain continue or did I lose?
I lost 4.6 pounds. YIPPEE!!!
