So Far, the Same

Well things have gone well since I decided I'd stop counting points. I didn't exactly quit cold turkey though, and I've gotten back on the Sparkpeople train. I love that program too, and it also works. I also find that it is much more forgiving than Weight Watchers, or so it leads you to believe. I think by the end of the week though, both programs work out to be about the same.

I think I've stayed the same this week, although I'll confirm that tomorrow morning. I know my weight was a little less on the weekend, but I'm usually lowest on the weekend and back up a bit by my weigh in day. So I expect this week to be no different.

I've been enjoying lots of foods (in moderation) that I had chosen to seriously limit during my WW journey, which has been nice. I actually made myself a homemade breakfast sandwich on Saturday morning - I thought it was the most delicious thing I had ever tasted!

Stephen and I also indulged in a habit we had managed to stay away from for the summer - cheese at the Farmer's Market. We picked up some shropshire (a blue/cheddar mix), some dutch butter cheese (which was delicious on my egg sandwich), some good crumbly white cheddar flavoured with sour cream and chives, a brie called Rustique (with a good sharp taste, surprising for a brie), and some derby cheddar (old white cheddar made with sage, so it looks green - so good with chicken). They are all so delicious. We also picked up some smoked bacon, some cheddar smokies, fresh corn, brown eggs, and some spoon bread. Needless to say, we'll probably go back to the market again next Saturday.

After the trip to the market we went home and made a fabulous breakfast, then it was off to enjoy the day at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival - a huge weekend here in Fredericton. I was lucky enough on Thursday to win an ultimate pass for Saturday's shows. With the pass we managed to catch Matt Mays & El Torpedo on Friday night, and enjoyed shows by the Homemade Jamz', Lil' Brian and the Zydeco Travelers, Dr. John, and David Myles. What a fabulous time! We're already excited about going again next year.
