I am not going to get into why this weekend wasn't great, but it had much to do with yesterday and the most-of-a-large-pizza-eating contest that I threw for myself. I never eat this much pizza. I was sick from it. I wanted to throw it up, sick.
In other news, I am now over HALFWAY toward the trip in August. I have a mere 25 days, including today, to fit into the infamous dress. I haven't tried it on since I have lost the 8-9 lb. yet, but I know it doesn't fit. Especially since I am now back up to 137.5 from last night's pizza fiasco.
Saturday we went out to eat and I ordered a salad, thinking I was being good. What came to the table? A monster salad with half a pound of chicken and at least 1 cup of shredded cheese, if not more. I ate half. Used some regular ranch, but not much. The good part? I tracked it all to the best of my ability and was at 1, 445 calories for the day. Not too bad. I was maintaining at 145-ish and now I have blown it.
What does this mean? I am going to revisit my goals to remind me of why I need to rededicate myself toward this challenge. I am halfway done and I am not where I want or need to be.
July Goals for Days 27-51:
- Keep drinking 2 ViSalus shakes per day, and eat one SENSIBLE meal for dinner
- Stick to my calorie ranges rigorously
- Drink plenty of
- Weigh myself daily to make sure I am staying on track
- Try on the dress again on day 50 and see if I can even wear it
- NO ALCOHOL UNTIL THE WEDDING
- Exercise daily, even if it's only for 20 minutes, it's better than nothing!
- Get to my goal weight for the wedding.
So, what is my goal weight now? I know I will be back to 145 from the weekend pizza-binge soon, like, within 3 days at least if not less than that. I didn't really eat 10,000 calories to gain a literal 2.5 lb. So say I am at 145 by day 28, I still have 23 days to stick to my diet rigorously. That's a bit over 3 weeks. At 2-3 lb. per week, I can reach 138 lb.! I am pretty sure I fit into that dress at that weight or a few lb. less than that. I do hope I can squeeze into it!
On that note, I am going to take a nice walk to get some exercise in. Today is a new day! The weekend is over, and it's back to work I go.
