OK. My weight is the same. 197. A bit frustrating but I will not use that as an excuse to give up. Because this is a way of life, not a diet, right? I had a great week last week. I only went once to the gym because hubby needed to work late on my other gym night. I ate yummy salads and healthy breakfasts. Then came the weekend. My mother bought McDonalds for me and Ava on Friday for lunch. I know I could have ordered some healthy thing but the smell of french fries got the best of me. Saturday night some friends came over for a girls night and chips were involved (on a side note, I have serious issues with chips. I HAVE to eat the whole bag. They are like my drug of choice. This is the FIRST time I have eaten them since I started this journey on Sept 21st so I feel like it was justified). Sunday morning we met friends at Broadwayy for breakfast. Who on earth can deny themselves Broadway homefries????? As you can probably guess, not me.
So I shouldn't have been overly surprised when I jumped on the scale and it still said 197. When I did poorly, I over ate with things loaded in sodium. I guess I just thought my week went well enough that I might even have a 1lb loss. Don't worry though, I'm over it and have been eating well so far this week. No more giving up when a day (or weekend) gets the best of me.
I did not go to the gym last night. Apparently there was some sort of instructors conference and all classes were cancelled. So instead, I pulled out the Wii Fit. It had been 18 days since I last used it! I pushed myself on it and did the long distance run instead of the short run like I usually do. I did the 6 minute rhythm boxing instead of the 3 min (boy did my arms feel it). I also got in 32oz of water in the 3 hours after my kids went to bed (plus a glass of wine :o) which I put into my daily calculations).
coffee with cream and sweetner
fat free strawberry yogurt with cut up banana and flax sprinkled on top
Salad with chickpeas, green peppers, tomatoes and a fat free or low fat dressing
Unknown - we are headed to the Trans Siberian Orchestra and are meeting friends for dinner beforehand. I'm keeping my daily food light to make up for that.
