I was out of town this weekend, visiting friends. No chance to work out. Now my week is being thrown COMPLETELY off by my college-age daughter and her girlfriend being here. I'm thrilled to bits that they have come to visit, and we are having a wonderful time, but it is making life challenging. I was planning to work out this morning, but last night they decided to abandon the guest room in favor of the bed in the family room, where they could watch TV as they went to sleep. Which is fine, except that it's the room with all my exercise equipment. So no workout this morning. Plus we ate out last night.
I get thrown off when my routine is interrupted. They are here until Thursday, and then we are off to a convention through the weekend, so I'm pretty much off-kilter until next Monday. I am trying to focus on maintaining through this week, and not using it as an excuse to go off the rails. Nevertheless, I'm up a pound and a half. Tonight we are eating in, and though it's a steak night, I will keep my portion small and eat veggies, which I am making in abundance. It will be all restaurant eating from Thursday through Sunday morning. It's going to be tough.
