Day 91 - Oh What a Weekend!
Monday, June 11, 2012
Oh what a weekend! And I don't mean that in a good way. I was offered a job at a tree company and I took it. I attempted to quit my current job and they worked with me so I can work both jobs for a short time to get back on my feet. Then I celebrated with friends and family. Oh boy, did I celebrate!
I haven't exercised much since Friday and I didn't log any of it. Ugh. So much for accountability there, but I did log every bite I took and every thing I drank.
Friday I went with my adult son to visit with some friends that I haven't seen in months. They wanted to go out for mexican and that sounded GREAT to me. I had avocado enchiladas and 2 margaritas. It was yummy. I ended the day at about 700 calories over my daily limit. But I told myself that I'd get back on track the next day. Which I did. I had fresh fruit and veggies all day with lean meats.
Then Sunday I took my adult daughter to IHop for breakfast. The breakfast alone was over my daily caloric limits. I enjoyed every bit. I had fresh fruits and veggies for the rest of the day and we walked a lot to work out a bit of the damage.
I didn't feel a bit guilty about eating this weekend like that. But the damage is very clear. All that salt and fat made me feel bloated and I've gained a lot of weight because of it. Today I'm back on track. Since this is the first day of my new job I was able to pack 2 great snacks, and a very healthy lunch. I'll be up and moving so that will help.
I'm determined to keep my mind positive about the right choices and take the lessons from the unhealthy choices. I'm just not going to be upset about the weight gain because I know that soon I will have it all under full control again. I will have to work out to add exercise while working 2 jobs. That should be interesting and I'll keep you posted.
