This week was a difficult week. My nephew just graduated USMC boot camp and was home for 10 days (he left today) so I was gone visiting him (which makes it harder to eat healthy when you’re not home) and we had lots of yummy fattening celebration food while he was here. I did do some photographs for him though and I got some exercise walking around and shooting!

Then my hubby passed his work certification Thursday so we went out Saturday night with his sister and her man to celebrate. We went bowling (burned some calories) and ate at the Japanese Hibachi Grill where they cook right in front of you.

(Oh and we had a TON of liqueur and cookies at the bowling alley. Calories Calories Calories!)

AND I missed 4 days of working out this week. Yes FOUR.

I said it was a DIFFICULT week!

On the bright side, I did lose 3 pounds this week!

The menu plan has gotten easier. Easier to plan, not to follow. Luckily our “diet” is mostly protein!
