Wk 114 Weigh In

Saturday, June 15, 2013

What a week this has been. I was doing pretty good with my "cut the calories" experiment, then some chocolate chip cookies made their way into my house... damn their soft chewiness! Anyway, I ended up consuming more calories the last few days than I had planned so things didn't turn out like I had hoped.

Still posted a loss for the week, but it was much smaller than what I had set for my goal. In other news, the weather was really nice this week. We went from 105 last Saturday to 80 on Monday. It stayed in the 80's all week and is about 90 today. So it was a nice respite from the hot weather.

My numbers for the week.

Weight : 210.0
Lost : 0.2
Total : 107.2

So a total loss of 0.2 for the week, I was on course to lose 1 lb until the cookies showed up! Oh well, they were some good cookies!

On a down note, a friend of mine passed away on Wednesday afternoon. He was involved in a head on accident, riding his Harley. We weren't real close friends, but he and my brother were and I knew him through my brother and having played some semi-pro football with him years ago. It's a real sad situation as he was only 38 and leaves behind 2 kids, son is 20 and daughter is in her teens. So now I have to make sure I have something to wear to a funeral on Wednesday.

Have a great weekend all of you.

    DOVESEYES suggested that I read your blog. I really appreciate it that you are honest with yourself, but don't put yourself down for being less than perfect. I have cookies calling my name frequently. If I don't run the other direction, I can eat an entire batch.

    I really look forward to reading more of your blog as time allows.

    Congrats on your week with the exception of the cookies. I don't have a soft spot for a lot of sweets but cookies get me every time.

    Really sad to hear about your friend. terrible thing to happen right before Father's day. I lost my dad in an accident and was about the same age as his kids are. It's a tough thing for that family. Prayers going out to them.

    All things considered, that's not bad - at least you didn't gain, and a new week is beginning. The whole calorie thing can be hard to keep track of.

    Temperatures in the 80's is a heat wave where I live, and it gets me down. How in the world can you stand 90's and 100+ ?!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend; how devastating for his family, and hard on your brother. He's lucky you are there for support.

    I always feel one splurge is temporary so if you are good you might get two pounds down next week. I need to eat a little cleaner but am still feeling good about the blog you turned me on to the other day. I used to obsess about eating a balanced diet of protein, carb and fat which just lead to eating some things I didn't want to and probably more than I would have if I just ate what I wanted ...within a reasonable limit. So far so good....I think we have something here.

    Boy you squeaked in with that one....Someone sent Hubby a box of cookies for Father's Day and He was on the Road....I have had one a day for the last few days. They were good and big....

    He got home tonight maybe he will enjoy one or two before he goes back out.

    Congrats on your might even itself out a little more in a few days?! long as you didn't eat an entire package! LOL

    Sorry to hear about your brother's friend. It definitely makes me think about how precious life truly is and that we are never promised tomorrow. I am sorry you have to experience this and I will keep all of you especially his children in my prayers. emoticon

    Oh boy, I know what you mean about the soft chewiness of those darn cookies. Why do they have to be so good? Despite it all, you did not gain, even managed to lose, way to go! Wishing you a Happy Father's Day!

    PS: I'm so sorry about your friend. How terribly sad, and so young. emoticon May God be with his family giving them strength. emoticon
