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

Keep up the good work!

  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.
