Confession time: I blew it royally this week with my eating. It started with a wednesday lunch date then a friday night at The Hard Rock Cafe (even though I shared the Angus burger and fries and cobbler) and a saturday dinner out and sunday dinner out. I did eat a healthy meal for breakfast on sunday though in spite of the fact that my family ate waffles. Did I mention the bag of chocolate covered almonds I devoured in 2 days. At least they were almonds and not snickers. I had oatmeal and blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and walnuts. I exercised less this week due to a hectic schedule. I still worked out 3 days. I got on the scale for my weekly weigh in this morning because even though I did not faithfully track my calorie intake I refuse to not know how I am doing. Sure enough I had gained weight. I went from 165.8 to 166.6. Even as I am blogging I realize this is not too bad considering how I had eaten and I still did some things that are right. The moral of the story for me is to wipe myself off get back up and keep it moving. I am in the game of healthy living for life after all.

This is why blogging is important I feel better already and realize that I am still a different person that I used to be and I am making good changes for the long haul.
Good for me.

    Everyone has days when we don't do so well. This is a lifestyle we are learning, and you are doing great! emoticon

    well yes.... but it is harder not to indulge when going out or holidays. We need a plan. But I do expect to eat some unhealthier stuff during these things but it's also good to practice some restraint.

    Usually I try and do some extra xercise or eat lighter later.

    On ward and beyond... emoticon

    I have been following my program quite well; however, yesterday I did induldge in more carbs than was wise.

    Today is a new day - the start of being back on track, as we become the best we can be.

    God bless!

    I too have been not so great this week and I gained one pound so it is back to my normal eating and working out as well.
