Week 29 - What a week

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

So this week (starting Wednesday), I was rocking and rolling. Hitting the gym hard and really watching my eating. By Friday morning, I was down 1lb.

THEN, we took a road trip to CT to visit some on-line friends. I totally had a plan as to how to make it through the party on plan. THAT actually worked. It was after the party and the next 2 days that I should have planned for. I ate too much foods and indulged on pop chips and sweet potato chips and dark chocolate almonds. Oh and no kind of fitness minutes Saturday or Sunday.

Monday I thought maybe I could start my recovery process but I just continued to feel bad about myself and eat even though I told myself not to do it. I did pull it together Tuesday but not enough to prevent a 4.4lbs gain in one week. Ugh. Oh did I also say that TOM is due any day now so I'm sure that factored in on the emotions and weight gain.

Well a very wise Navy Ninja asked me if I really wanted to RE LOSE THE WEIGHT I HAVEN'T GAINED YET (thanks Maureen). That was enough to snap me back into reality. I don't want to relose any more weight. So this week is back to the grind. I was just starting to like my belly again and not I don't. Oh well.

My goal for this week is to BE the biggest loser on my team. I was #2 on the team for Week 5. Week 6 is a bust so I'm shooting for biggest loser for Week 7.

Another eye opening things I noticed as I looked over my weight for 2013 is that I have been basically maintaining. Highest weight was 154.6 and the lowest was 146.8lbs but I've been hovering around 149.6lbs. So maybe 150lbs should be my goal but I'm NOT ready to give up yet. I'm giving myself until my 40th birthday in Oct and then I will stop trying to actively lose weight and just maintain from there and focus on other goals like tweaking my eating and working toward fitness goals.

My mini goal for this next week – Track 7 days a week and stay at the lower end of my range. Also ask myself before I eat anything will this help me toward my goal of being next weeks biggest loser and if the answer is no then don't eat it. I WILL emoticon.

    "Also ask myself before I eat anything will this help me toward my goal of being next weeks biggest loser and if the answer is no then don't eat it." Great goal, and short term, so the end is even closer now.
    You can do this Leah!
