Family Fun Weekend

It has been a while since we had a family fun weekend so this weekend we planned a trip to Chattanooga, TN. It is only about 1 hr & 45 minutes away and has quite a bit to offer. There are lots of things to do there in the summer but in the winter it is hard to find things. Chattanooga is home to the Tennessee Aquarium and the Creative Discover Children's Museum. We left Saturday morning around 10AM and spent Saturday at the aquarium, spent the night in a hotel and took the kids swimming in their heated indoor pool, and then today we spent the day at the children's museum. It was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast. Even the baby had fun looking at all the fish and playing. Our friends Karen, Dusting and their daughter Brianna met us Saturday for lunch and the aquarium.

While we had a great time and it was fun to get away it is so hard to stay good on a diet! When you eat out, you don't know exactly how many calories are in things and you feel like since you are on vacation that it is okay to cheat a little. When we first got there I had a half of a grilled chicken sandwich and a cup of clam chowder. The part that really killed me though was the room service we got once heading back to the hotel. We were all tired from a long day at the aquarium, it was cold outside and we decided that it would be too hard to pack everyone up to go out to eat again. I scanned the room service menu. It was a little pricey and I didn't want to spend too much. The only things very reasonable were the sandwiches. I had already had a grilled chicken for lunch so the only other thing that sounded good was a hamburger. It said it came with garlic aioli. Well my friend Jordan makes these awesome veggie paninis with garlic aioli. They are so yummy. When I read the menu and saw that the burger came with aioli I just couldn't resist. So I ordered it. Travis had the same. The part that really pissed me off that if it had any aioli on it, I couldn't taste and or see it. So I wasted all those calories and didn't even really get what I wanted. Tonight I plan to shred it off.

So this week is the big week to hit the 179! It is going to be very tough, as I had said, it is very lofty! However, I am going to try my hardest. I already told Travis what the 4 goals are and that he is to hold me accountable.
1) Shred it video everyday
2) 2-32 oz Nalgenes of water per day
3) Constant wear of the Bodybugg
4) Track all points with weight watchers on phone and do not go over daily allotment

Travis is supposed to check and make sure that I do all of these things each day!
