I had such a great long weekend with my family!!! We all had fun, and the most wonderful thing happened. I GOT ENGAGED!!!! YAY, I am so excited. New source of motivation, get "wedding-ready!" Haha I don't know when the date will be yet, probably not very soon.
I haven't tracked my eating since Thursday. I started again this morning. Since I was so busy packing for my trip, I missed the workout I had planned. Although I was pretty active (walking, swimming, general opposite of couch potato-ship) over the weekend, I didn't follow my plan at all. Eating was not ideal. I tracked nothing and didn't try too hard to moderate my portions. I drank beer, not to excess but at least 2 over the course of each evening. There were sugary shots of liquor. I was really just in the mood to relax, and let my weight do what it would do. I was okay with a potential gain.
Stepped on the scale this morning with trepidation, and I had gained. 2/10ths of a pound!! WHAT?! I was astounded. Actually, I still am. I guess I did alright after all! I'm having a hard time articulating my thoughts on this. My food choices were not overly indulgent? I didn't sabotage myself by not tracking for half-a-week?? Hahahaha!!! I've learned some moderation and I had no idea. I really didn't eat much if I wasn't hungry. Now that I think about it, it might actually take less food to make me feel satisfied now? Could that be it?
This just seems so weird, and I'm so happy that I can kind of pick right up where I left off, and keep right on going! Today is a rest day, and a busy one at that! Unpacking, doing laundry, groceries... Right on back into the groove :) Did I mention I'm happy?
