It has been a very full weekend. I have worked out every day except one, and that day I was at my parent's house and binged on dark chocolate m&m's that I found in the house. I felt terrible, but I just couldn't stop. But instead of hiding it, I came out and told my parents what I had done, how bad I felt, etc. And now I'm telling my support network. They didn't even taste good!
The rest of the weekend went better. Well, mostly. I ate really good, healthy foods but when I went to work out on Sunday, I ended up walking the track at the local high school and stayed there for two hours. Not only were my feet killing me, but the sun had felt so good that I had been out there in a tank top to get some color. Well, now I'm the color of a lobster, and so sore!! But it felt so good to be out in the fresh air that I can't feel all that bad about it.
My mom went to see her cousin at the end of the week, and I just wish the news had been better. She's not doing well, and she knows it. I think she's accepted that her body wants to rest and thus the move to hospice care. Makes me feel more motivated to get in shape and not waste the life that I have been given. The news wasn't good, but at least my mom and her cousins got to catch up and hopefully the worst that we are preparing for doesn't happen yet.
I also got to visit with my brother. We went out for dinnerand just got caught up. Did a little shopping, and my favorite part of the weekend was a fashion show for my mom, trying on my summer clothes to see what fit and what was...wait for it...too big!! I donated four pairs of pants and five shirts that are way too big for me now. Lots of the clothes that I kept for the summer are borderline to being too big but should work for the summer. I just don't want to spend money for new clothes yet, not until I am closer to a maintenance weight. But it was a great way to celebrate my weight loss, even if I've gained the last two weeks. I worked out six days this last week and tried to eat healthy so I'm hoping that I see some change today when I weigh in. Wish me luck!
I hope everyone is having a great week, and there is a lot of sunshine for everyone!!
