Success and a challenge
Wednesday, August 01, 2012
It's been one week since the fateful Cleveland weight in. I'm starting to think the scale may have been broken. I weighed in today. My scale says I've lost 9 pounds. In one week. What? That is awesome news. I'm confused, but also, I couldn't be happier.
I need to remember this if the scale refuses to move for the next month.
It's also good motivation to stay on track this weekend. Tomorrow we head out to stay with a friend at his cabin on Lake Huron. This is seriously my favorite weekend of the year. There is no phone, no email, no chaos, only fishing, peace and food. That's going to be the challenge. We've been doing this every summer for the past 5 years, and these weekends are characterized by overeating. In a big way. It will be tough because I won't have my food tracker and I won't have much choice over what I eat.
I'm going to try to do two things. First, I'm going to avoid seconds. Even if the food is super bad for me, I can control the situation by controlling how much of it I eat. Secondly, I'm filling my cooler with every piece of fruit and veggie in my house and taking it with me, so I have some healthy options.
I can do this. My goal is just to maintain over the weekend, and get right back on track when I return.
