A Weekend At Home :)

Monday, April 08, 2013

So as planned, my boyfriend and I left to go home to our hometowns for the week (Our hometowns are ~10kms apart). I ate the healthy snack that I packed on the way during the nine hour drive. And of course we stopped to a few gas stations on the way. So in total besides the good food I had packed, I had a small bag of chips, half a bar, a bottle of water, and a magnum ice cream. I know that sounds bad, but compared to the trips I've had before driving 9 hours home and 9 hours back, thats a cute little amount compared to what I could have had. We also avoided eating at a restaurant along the way :) And it was Friday, which is treat day after I weigh.
It's Monday now and I'm still home and overt the weekend I have to admit that I did not do as bad as I thought I would. My boyfriend and I bought a treat each last night and I had a bar and a small bag of chips. I had a BBQ Saturday and I did not over eat at all.
So I'm pretty pleased with myself and the amount of splurging I did not do while I was home :)
I weighed Friday past and I gained 0.7 of a pound. I was a little upset at first with it because of how hard I have been trying this past week. However I plan to eat less and workout more this upcoming week and kick it harder at the gym. Hopefully this Friday will have different results for me :) Wish my luck Sparkers :)

  I use to track my calories but no i just estimate (roughly). And my clothes is fitting better and I do believe i'm gaining muscle. I'm just a little frustrated for not seeing it on the scale yet :(

  Trying to stay on track is always hard when traveling. Do you track your food every day so you know how many calories you are eating? Weight tends to go up and down a little, so .7 is not bad. How are your clothes fitting? That is sometimes a better marker because if you are exercising you may be developing muscle which ways the same as fat but doesn't take up as much space. Good luck.
