The shine is off the bloom

..... or something like that. This is starting to seem like work now. I didn't eat so well this weekend. I went about 200 calories over on both Friday and Saturday. It's hard to be in control of your food when you are being social with your family. This is much easier during the week, when I can eat at work and home. My calories I recorded are within range for Sunday, but nothing was measured, so I really feel like I was probably over on Sunday too. And the scale showed it. It said I gained a pound this morning. Today's goal: drink a LOT of water to see if I can flush it out and then record my weight tomorrow.

There was one bright spot: I went grocery shopping Saturday morning and I was very proud of my buggy. I wanted to show it off. Truly, most of it came from the outside aisles of the store: dairy, meat, and produce. I'm looking forward to doing that again in a couple of weeks. My goal this week is to be 100% on plan through Friday. Friday night we go out to eat for my Dad's birthday.

    I was struck by the title of your blog.... it definitely expresses what I have been feeling if not "fearing" I started this journey only 7 weeks ago... all gung ho like many of us. Feeling full of energy, motivation, determination etc. I still have strong feelings about wanting to be successful, but it is SO HARD! Planning, arranging, making time in our everyday schedules to shop for the right food, make sure we get in that exercise... it is work! Its hard work and it doesn't seem as great an idea as it was in the beginning. But I keep focusing on what I have to gain.... I will look better, I will feel better, I will live longer, I will have a better attitude towards most things and the positives is what keeps me going!! Sounds like you have a great start to your week. You have the right food and you have the right attitude.... so do it for yourself, do it for your son and just do it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
