This weeks Monday morning weigh-in is going to be short and sweet I'm afraid. Two reasons for this, today was a very busy day so I am short on my writing time, and probably the biggest factor is the fact that I did not lose this week. Yes, that is right I gained 3 pounds!! What happened you ask? Well I blame it on a slip in my eating habits and the downturn in my exercise time. I ate out more than usual this past week and instead of taking half my meal home, I made the mistake of cleaning my plate. A big no-no for me. Plus I didn't have the best choices on my plate. A huge mushroom Swiss burger with fries Friday night was a caloric nightmare I can only guess! Then there was the Mexican for lunch on Friday. Saturday I made a huge pot of beef stew, but ate half a French baguette with it. I did walk this week, but since the weather turned cooler, I didnt walk as much as I usually do.
On the upside, I had no sweets for the sixth week. I am really doing okay with that. That being said I shall focus on the positive. I wasn't a bit surprised when I got on the scale this morning. I never expected this to be easy. I know there are always bumps in the road
Now I can move on with my week. Tomorrow I am getting my health assessment done. Hopefully that will show things are on an upswing. I am going to lunch with friends again this Friday and what will I do? Only eat half of what is on my plate. Normally when I am out with friends this isn't much of a problem since I am doing more talking than eating..
So maybe I was overly self confident after last weeks loss. This week sure was a wake up call to keep focused and keep my eyes on my goal.
