Two days ago I stepped on the scale and discovered that I had gained three pounds. I stepped off the scale horrified. Now normally, a three pound gain wouldn't scare me because at different times of the month my weight fluctuates...but this was three pounds ON TOP of my normal three pound differential... aarrghhh!
There is no one to hold accountable for this but me. My husband and I went to dinner last Friday (something we hardly ever do) and I had a loaded baked potato. I could have stuck with the steamed broccoli. I went to the Festival on Ponce in Atlanta Sunday and I had a funnel cake. I usually take Kashi Go Lean bars and a bottle of water with me to avoid the temptation to eat badly. Wednesday I had a fried chicken salad from Applebees for lunch at work with the girls (the whole size mind you and bread) when I normally bring my lunch. What did I expect!
Now I am not beating myself up. I know it's ok to splurge every now and then and enjoy life, but I have been sabotaging myself all week. I should have expected the scale to be angry with me.
Sooooooo... I am sitting at my desk at work this morning with my two hardboiled eggs and greek yogurt and warm lemon water preparing a workout plan that will help me regain what I have lost and stay on the path. The new goal is to be less than 200 pounds by July 19th...
I need an accountability partner! I hope you will check on me from time to time, but if I find myself alone in this race, I certainly won't be having any more weeks like this past one.
I am now headed in the RIGHT direction!
