I am SO sorry I didn’t post last Wednesday! We had an all-day, off-campus office retreat and I wasn’t near my computer at all that day. So, I completely forgot to play catch up on Thursday! At any rate, last week I GAINED 1.8 lbs. Womp womp. I had known it was going to be bad because of all the booze I’d had and because of lack of exercise, PLUS my stomach bug the week before contributed to my 2.8 loss. Oh well. Here are this week’s results:
That says –61.0, I promise. Lol sorry, I know it’s blurry! At any rate, that’s another gain of 0.6 lbs this week. Once again, not surprised; I ate Marv’s (my college town’s greasy famous food place) TWICE this weekend, as it was my 5 year college reunion. BUT, at least I can say that that will only ever happen every 5 years! I also had more booze than normal…I think that is what my downfall has been recently. The food willpower is better than it has been, but ever since the weekend at the cabin, I’ve not been able to reign in the alcohol consumption. It needs to stop! In addition, it’s spring/summer…so there are all sorts of special evening things that don’t happen during the school year, like picnics and barbeques and work banquets–the list goes on. That means two things: one, I eat terribly because the willpower isn’t as great as it once was, and two, less time to exercise. Ugh. So I need to get my shit together and get back on track. Honestly, I’m at 175, and I feel REALLY good about that, but I’d like to be down in the 160s by the time Disney rolls around in December. That’s totally doable, I just need to get it together! (And yes, true confession time–I was doing so well yesterday and planned on working out after our church service last night, and then we went to Dairy Queen and I got a mini Jurassic Smash blizzard. Oof–at least it was mini, lol!)
I’m not going to be down on myself, though. There’s no reason for me to waste precious energy by agonizing over choices I’ve already made. Plus, I had a couple of NSV’s this week. Last summer, I bought a pair of green (faded-type green, not bright green) shorts from Goodwill in a juniors size “19.” I had NO idea what a juniors size 19 was, but I bought them because I held them up and they kind of looked like they might fit. When I got home to try them on, there was NOOOOO way they were even getting up past my thighs, basically. Well, the other night I pulled them out of the back of my closet–lo and behold, THEY FIT PERFECTLY! So that was pretty exciting. Also, everyone at my 5 year reunion was like OMG YOU LOOK SO GOOD. So that was pretty awesome. Here are some pics!
Aight, hoping for better results next week, BUT I’m getting together with my college bestie in Indy and we are going to tapas! I EFFING LOVE TAPAS! But it’s the only night of the week I plan on having alcohol, so maybe that will help??? Ugh. I’m ready for a normal week! (/ I need to just suck it up and abstain from booze!!!!!!) Hope y’all have great weigh-ins!
