I went ahead and jumped on the scale this morning to see the damage of the past couple of weeks of mindless snacking and candy consumption. I gained 2.4 lbs. So I'm still about 3 lbs. over my WW goal weight and 6 lbs. over my "goal". So basically, the past 12 months I've lost 2 of the 8 lbs. I wanted to loose! I still consider myself a "Maintainer" since I've kept off 40 of the 46 lbs. I lost 2 years ago.
My reason for blogging is to maintain some kind of accountability and journal my activities. No, I'm not sticking to my goals, and I'm on this "roller coaster" ride of maintaining. If I get a little out of control (see before mentioned candy consumption), I quickly get back in control, although I need to be a little better than 4 weeks "on" and 2 weeks "off"! Especially with the holidays and all that entails looming!
Last night after picking up DD#3 from play practice, DH, DD#2 and I went to the park. I was a little sore from my run on Monday, so I thought I would just walk a little on the trail and play some basketball with DD#2. I am in dire need of new shoes. I really should just break down and go to the running store and get fitted for shoes. I know all the reasons for doing this and there's a great store right by where I work (I actually pass it 2 times a day!). I just can't convince myself to spend the money, so I might just swing by Academy Sports (which is also right by my work) and pick up some shoes. We love that store!
DH & DD#2 warmed up on the outdoor track and I headed to the greenway. I ended up running about a mile and walking about 1/2 mile for about 25 mins. It wasn't a great workout, but it was more than what I wanted to do! DD#2 was finishing up her last "suicide" which is a sprinting drill and then we stayed about 10 more mins. while she practiced some shots. She was really tired and cranky and DH yelled at me for nagging her about being tired after only about 35 mins. of practicing when she has 2 hour try-outs coming up! She did have a point though, the 2 hour try-outs will be with 35-40 girls and the 35 mins. she just spent practicing was just her! So Mom shut up - she said I was negative.
Anyway, tonight I have to take DD#1 to work and DD#3 to youth group. DD#2 and I will try to squeeze in a run on the indoor track and if we have time, she'll shoot some baskets. If DH gets home in time, he can take DD#3 and we won't have to rush. So that will be 3 days in a row of exercise - take that you 2.4 lbs.!
