I didn't weigh myself! Haha, that would be the good news.
Saturday started out pretty good. The baby got up early, I had to shower and get ready, give the baby a bath and get her ready, get gas, wash the car, go to the farmer's market, and then head out to Viking for the parade by 11 (45 minutes away).
I was really happy with the reception I got when I showed up. Most of the relatives haven't seen me since I was about 275 pounds (I was 170 on Saturday when seeing them). One kept calling me skinny. Another said she wanted me to rub off on her so she could lost weight. My grandma kept bragging to others in Viking about my weight loss. Many said how proud they were of me.
So that was the positive. The negative? I was seriously hounded about what I was eating, what I could eat, etc. The good part was how supportive a few were about making food that I "could eat on my diet." The not so great part was that when I put things on my plate that I "shouldn't have"...I got a few looks and comments. The things I shouldn't have eaten? Potato salad, hot dog (without bun), 2 pieces of flat bread with a bit of butter, and 1 cookie. I also later had a Mountain Dew (1/2 can). GASP! I really ended up feeling awkward and like I was having a guilt trip laid on me. I tried not to let it get to me, but I ended up being in a bit of an irritated mood by the time I left. Oh, and a great uncle told me I need to put on weight....nice.
Overall, I did pretty good considering....
Then, last night, I got sick. I was throwing up, my head pounding, and I went to bed at 11:30 (so late for me!). I ended up sleeping late, though not very well. I had grapes, a banana, Apple Jacks, grilled cheese sandwich, potato chips (8), and a homemade crab salad on a Jimmy John's bread. Yes, a bit of comfort food! I felt good overall how I ate, even though it was not optimal. I still vomited a bit this evening (ugh, I hate throwing up) but it is so weird because I was famished all day! And nauseated! And no, not a chance I am preg-o.
No working out this weekend, and that was not a problem for me. I needed the rest! I am psyched about getting up at 5 tomorrow and rocking it at the gym. I plan on 45 minutes of spinning and ST. I will only be eating filling foods to kind of equal out the weekend of higher fat and carbs.
Here's to rocking this week, and kicking these last 15 pounds out the door for good!!!
