Well last weekend my older daughter told me she was cancelling the wedding, and that she and her fiancee were running off to Las Vegas to get married - and they DID!!! It was a stupid thing, but I got all depressed and ate everything in sight (that's how I treat depression - my bad!)!!! Yeah, I need to work on that. Anyway, I successfully gained back almost everything I've lost this year , so today I'm being honest and re-setting my weight tracker to reflect that. Also, starting today and for the next 2 weeks I'm doubling down on my diet and exercising, to try and reverse some of the damage from last weekend. For the next 2 weeks, I'm purging the junky comfort food from my diet - no cupcakes, no brownies, no yummy Starbucks coffees, etc. Instead, more fruits/veggies/whole grains, and logging that food in the SparkPeople nutrition counter. And back into running 3x week, and doing SOMETHING the other 4 days - elliptical, my new Bootcamp DVD, gardening, whatever, just MOVE!!! (Nothing on TV to watch this week anyway ) This is in addition to the walking I do on my breaks at work - surely I can keep this up for 2 weeks! I will record this and keep everyone informed; this is my promise to ME!
