I was sure that I would be pretty unhappy with the number on the scale this week.
Then along comes stomach virus.
Meh, I’ll take what I can get.
At this point I’m feeling human again so that means it’s time to go back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I can still stay on track and not make up for lost calories these past few days.
Sorry for the short and sweet, but 5AM is going to come super early tomorrow.
Today certainly started off with a bang!
I was super stoked with this week’s weigh in. That puts me nearly three pounds ahead of schedule!
I had an easy run on the schedule today and just assumed we would hit the gym at lunch.
Around 9AM the day took a bit of a turn.
There’s really no other way to say this…
I went to a breakfast buffet.
Yes people, you read that correctly.
A few friends were headed to Sway and I had been drooling over that place for months. I had been there three times in the past and every single time Cliff and I were doing a restaurant challenge.
Every. Single. Time.
And every single time I refrained. I would sit there for an hour and talk and laugh and do my absolute best to not breathe through my nose.
I decided that today was the day.
I swear I had good intentions. I was going to fill up on fruit, stay away from the bread, and drink only water.
Yeah – so that lasted all of never.
Of course I rationalized that I just wouldn’t eat for the rest of the day. It was plenty of calories to get me through and normally when we have brunch I’m never hungry at dinner.
I wish I could say that’s all that happened.
I wish I could tell you that I didn’t wind up at McDonald’s 12 hours later. I DEFINITELY wish I could tell you that a McChicken and fries weren’t involved.
Tomorrow is another day.
On a more positive note, I plan to start reading this TONIGHT.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time that I have ever been elated about a gain.
I was positively thrilled to see 224 on the scale this morning. As many of you know I had a pretty terrible week last week. I saw as much as a 6 pound gain! I just knew this morning was going to be terrible. I worked really hard the last three days to try and correct my bad behavior and I was so happy to see that it worked out quite well in the end. Only a one pound(ish) gain! It does bum me out a little that I’m slightly over my goal weight for the week, but I feel confident that I can catch up this week. Especially since we decided to make it “No Restaurant September.”
It feels terrific to be back in the gym. I hadn’t realized just how much I missed it until we went back yesterday. There’s just something amazing about working out in the middle of the day. It gives me that much needed energy boost that helps me beat the 2PM slump. Plus, it’s awesome to get home at 4:30 and know that I have the rest of the night to do
what I want homework.
Two random observations for the day:
I think it’s time to order a ring guard. I really want to wait until I’m closer to goal before I get it sized.
It feels pointless to walk when I don’t have my FitBit.
Yes, I know that’s terrible. Yes, I walk anyway. No, I’m not a fitness tracker douche. (Ok, maybe I am a little – but I can’t help it! That little thing is pretty cool).
