Week 27 - Glad it's a new week

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

Last Wednesday I had a renewed determination. I was sick and tired of scale going up and up and up. So I was determined to be the biggest loser on my team this week. Not sure if I accomplished that BUT I did lose 1.4lbs emoticon.

To hold myself accountable, I posted my CICO to my team every day but 1. Not sure if they looked at or even cared. I basically did it for me since I knew that others were going to see how well I did that day. The week was going great until I went to my in-laws for a graduation BBQ on Saturday. I thought it wasn't going to be an issue since I just stuck to the veggie/fruit salad I brought and the meats (they were covered in bbq sauce) and some plain potato chips. I guess it wasn't as safe as I thought because I gained the 1.4lbs that I had worked so hard to lose up until that point. Needless to say that it took me from Sun-Wed just to get back to the weight I was Saturday morning. How frustrating is what? I had a really bad emotional day on Monday but I'm happy that I didn't turn to food to cope. I turned to the gym. I feel like I lost a lot of time just to get back to were I was before the BBQ.

Anyway, the scale was down from last week and I'm pushing for next WI to be back in the 140's (and the biggest loser on the team) and stay there this time. I am looking ahead to a few weekends from now when we will be away for the weekend. I really need to plan now and stick with it. I probably won't be working out that weekend either.

What have I done well?
Posted my CICO everyday but 1 for accountability.
Really watched what I ate.

What could I have done better?
Brought my own food to the BBQ. This way I would have known that everything was safe to eat.

What changes will I make?
On the weekends to be just as diligent as I am during the week.
I can’t slack off because it takes too long to recover from a weekend slip-up.

I have already hit the reset button and I'm still pushing to be at goal BEFORE the end of the BLC22 round.

    Hi Leah! I did view your CICO when you posted it. Now that you are down a few pounds, you might have to reduce your BMR.
    Great job on being accountable and I am happy for you all the hard work has paid off and was reflected on the scale. Let's do what we can to make it two weeks in a row! emoticon
