Back to Square One (again)

Monday, October 08, 2012

Ugh. I'm back to square one again. I just took the family to three days at the Great Wolf Lodge. We just arrived home and I just weighed myself and I'm back to my starting weight - again. Ugh.

First the good: For the first 1.5 days, I was REALLY good with my eating and exercise. I brought breakfast with me - so my eating was perfect for one meal each day. We ate lunch at the Olive Garden and I chose a meal that was under 500 calories. All protein and veggies. So that was good. And I tried to be good for dinner, but even after eating protein and veggies, I was starved. I really needed carbs. Ugh.

Lunch today at Cracker Barrel was their "low carb" offering: 3 eggs scrambled and turkey sausage. I avoided the toast. And black tea and water to drink.

More good: I exercised every day I was there. Yesterday I ran on the treadmill. This morning I did the weight circuit - five times (really!) And while we were there, we spent the entire day running around and climbing stairs, and getting a lot of exercise.

Good: I avoided dessert. Every day/night.

Even more good: We had some great family time.

Now the bad: I had two dinners and a lunch that were high caloric. Oh, and I ate a donut. I was starved. Ugh.

I may be lighter tomorrow morning when I weight myself, but I know my weight is up (again). Ugh.

But I do know what to do to get it down again.

Hope y'all had a wonderful Columbus Day week-end!

    I wish there was some way to make trips away easier on the eating part.
