Overindulgent weekend is reflected on the scale.
Thursday, July 28, 2011
Yesterday was my official weigh in day. I had only lost 6 ounces for the week. Slight bummer, but I wasn't that surprised. This past weekend, DH and I headed to Eureka Springs with my parents and members of our church. We went to the Great Passion Play and several other spiritually uplifting events. I had a great time. It was truly the renewal of mind and soul I needed.
However, I did overindulge. DH and I walked along downtown and stopped in at a little café for lunch. It was delicious but I can’t even guess the amount of calories. We also got tasty chocolaty treats while wondering around. I knew I was overdoing it, but had hoped that my walking would be enough (we even walked through a cave while there).
So, I’m being honest about my weigh in. I’ve still worked out as planned and didn’t let my 2 day indulgence turn in to a week. Once back, I got back in to my normal groove and kept going. I can’t allow a weekend to derail me now.
If there is one piece of advice I would give anyone (and please take it with the understanding that I’m still trying to figure this out too), it would be: BABY STEPS. For me, taking little tiny baby steps has been so important in sticking to it this time. Just because I have 1 bad day or 1 bad weekend, I have not let it get me off track. I am so focused this time!
