I know weekends typically upset my system and are a difficult thing for me to manage. This weekend in particular really put me in a downward spiral. I didn't count calories for three days in a row and while I'm pretty sure I didn't over eat, I just don't know.
I didn't get a chance to prep for the week or adequately plan meals. I didn't grocery shop at my normal time and the store was out of all the things I wanted, like Salmon and other items on sale.
On Sunday we got some news regarding a home we are looking to purchase and I totally shut down. There was no getting anything done.
Monday was an extra weekend day for me, and while I am pretty sure my caloric intake was okay, I don't know. Tuesday my nanny was very sick so I had to work from home with my kids and spent the day trying to focus on work while attending to little needs. Healthy habits (like drinking lots of water) went out the window.
While I don't think the damage was too bad I know I didn't drink my water. The water gets me every time! Yesterday I went to a wellness fair and found out my % body fat is at the very bad range of poor. Not great news, and it certainly left me feeling gross about myself.
So what do I have to celebrate? I did still manage to lose a half pound this week. I also did my best to have healthy salads for lunch and manage my portions even if I had a couple of calorie questionable meals over a few days. I also made sure my kids consumed more fruit (they don't know it, but their diet is getting modified as well). And I'm still here on spark - even though I took a few days sabbatical.
I'll keep pushing forward with tomorrow being my first normal day this week. It's only Thursday, that's not too late to start is it?
