Despite all my good intentions to workout everyday this week, twice a day, as I had gotten into the habit of doing, things came up.
My son decided to come home. So I had to prepare as well as move heaven and earth to get some extra time off to take him to an art show he needed to go to.
There was also my Dad's birthday party which I cooked at. I had a piece of chocolate cake and he said to me, 'How are you going to lose weight if you have a piece of chcolate cake?' It was not a comment I appreciated. I never had any intention of giving up chocolate cake with yummy delicious lard based icing for the rest of my life. Birthday cake is my favorite food. I will have it occasionally.
I had to take my kitty Khaleesi to her first vet appointment.
Then everything I ordered arrived to redecorate so I have been assembling, arranging, as well as painting. Friday morning I woke up and realized, I wanted to be done with the redecorating project. So I painted the last few pots I had to paint at 5am.
I have a sneaky suspicion that despite burning close to 3000 calories today I may have gained weight. This sneaky suspciion comes from weighing myself on my bathroom scale. LOL
I'm not sure if it's water retention or what. I should have at least stayed the same. Or, yes, maybe it's the lack of intentional exercise.
At any rate, I did learn a few things this week.
1 - I have to stop working so much extra time at work. It wasn't until I took some time off because my son is here that I realized how exhausted I really am.
2 - After losing an average of 3+ lbs a week since 10.20.12 it might be okay to not lose weight one week. Gee. Maybe. The fact of the matter is, this is life, and this is a lifestyle, not a regimented program, although certainly an organized and habitual one usually. We have to allow for some flexibility.
3 - My Father obviously has never had to lose 150 pounds and seems to think that it's a start and stop thing where when you are in start mode - you never eat something like chocolate cake - and when you are in stop mode - you do.
4 - I need my formal exercise program.
That's all.... gotta go weigh ..... of course .... will let anyone and everyone who is paying attention know what happened.
