Today I debated logging the weight

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Sometimes I'll put off logging when it goes up. I know it was those Oreos that did most of the damage and I'll be able to get right back on track this week.

I did eat the entire package, at 150 calories per serving with 14 servings per package, for a grand total of 2100 calories in the package, eaten over two days.

It's not helping that it snowed AGAIN last night, but we got less than the south suburbs this time and it's nice and sunny here today. It looks like the last snow of the season, but are the weather forecasters just being optimistic giving us a look at 70* weather this weekend?

So I thought, perhaps I'll just see if this weight melts off and it looks like I've kept the weight the same for an entire month? I might just go back down to 177 again next week, but to try to be honest with myself I logged the new weight. It happens, I need to face it, and that will cause me to do something about it. Ignoring it will not do much else but keep the truth from myself and the public. There are peaks and valleys in this journey, and if I don't show the peaks, the valleys aren't as impressive.

Today's Holidays: International Sing Out day, Take a Chance Day and National Picnic Day. If you were to take a picnic where I am, it would be a chance since you're sitting on snow still and you probably would sing out when you sat on the cold.

    A lock and key (given to daughter) on Oreos?

    Picnic day: I would have had icicles hanging off me, brrr.
    No snow but lots of wind and cold yet until end of week.

    Maybe it won't be a sweltering hot summer though!

    The beauty of the blogs and tracking is seeing what we've learned along the way. Good for you for keeping it real. We're going to have these days, and these temptations. ugh And yes, with some effort, the weight will be gone, I just know it!

    I think logging it is/was the best decision. I don't think we do ourselves any favors by skipping or delaying the weigh-ins. It's uncomfortable, especially when we know it's just water or some other type of "temporary" weight gain. But, I think skirting over the gains sets ourselves up for more problems down the road. Kind of what you said about the peaks and valleys. It is what it is. In my book, I track it and move on. I'm still learning in regards to managing my emotions with the ups and downs of maintenance. But...

    emoticon I like how you put all three days in one sentence. Hopefully things will settle down soon. I've seen buds on my apple trees and it frosted today. Not sure what that will do with the trees this summer. Keep up the good work.

    Best to be honest, I think emoticon
    I would scream out if I sat on the snow.

    You are so honest that I have to really admire that! You should get a reward simply for confessing that you ate all of those oreos. I'm not sure I would have owned up to that. But now you have and you are so aware of what you eating; it is now in the past and you are moving on to your health and fitness. I'm sure it won't take long to undo the damage. You've had a rather rocky winter and spring (the warm weather they promised us is coming) will lighten your step and make everything seem a little easier. emoticon

    Yep, you gotta log it. But it was quick to come, and it will be quick to go. Renew your commitment and be happy when it melts off. emoticon

    Ugh I know that feeling... But you're right... if you don't mark it down you ignore it and then comes the downward spiral. Great job!
