Let's recap:

All in all, my week was pretty good actually.  This weekend is where I lost it.  Usually my weekends are my best days for steps in, but not the case for this past weekend.  It was the start of my holidays and I was TIRED!  Just no energy all weekend.  No explanation other then perhaps I was in "holiday mode"

I also have to share this wise tidbit of info a friend shared.  It's from a 7 year old and it's BRILLIENT I tell ya!

She had commented to her husband over dinner how she had really "fallen off the wagon" in regards to her eating over the weekend..  Her 7 year old son pipes up and comments and says

"No Mom, you slipped off the wagon....if you fall off and the wagon is still moving you can't get back on.  If you slip off, you can still get back on."

I am going to take that very wise information and know that I only slipped off the wagon, but I am still holding on and have enough leverage to right myself and get back on!

Until next time,
