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 cafť for lunch. It was delicious but I canít 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, Iím being honest about my weigh in. Iíve still worked out as planned and didnít let my 2 day indulgence turn in to a week. Once back, I got back in to my normal groove and kept going. I canít 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 Iím 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!

    I agree with the idea that you have to overindulge every once in awhile to keep your sanity. Great job jumping back on track right away! Next week your weigh in will reflect that!

  I'm so proud of you! When I'm so ready to chuck a workout, I think, "Jenn's not quitting. She's totally on this," and it makes me get off my lazy butt and get going!!!

P.S. Don't forget that restaurants put a crazy amount of salt in things, so you might just have weighed heavy yesterday from eating out over the weekend.

    I am a firm believer that you need to indulge once in awhile--as long as you can get back on track quickly! Glad you had a wonderful weekend.
