Last Week Was Not a Good Week for the Weight Loss Competition…

I suppose I’ll start by saying that I gained two pounds between last Monday and yesterday. Sigh…that is disappointing. I think it all started on Monday when we had a snow day and I lazed out all day. I decided not to go to the gym. Actually, truthfully, I went to the gym to weigh in (in work out clothes) and then left before working out (my first no-no of the week). Then I had a fight with hubby that night (no fisticuffs, don’t worry, just yelling). That bummed me out so I ended up “eating my emotions”.

Then I got over it, but by that time, it was Easter weekend, and I was hanging with family. I love my family, but we don’t usually make a habit of eating healthy together. So, on Saturday we went to Chili’s and I later learned that the burger and fries I ate was 1200 calories! Um…yeah…and I also ate tortilla chips, guacamole, and bean dip while I was there. I had a horrible headache the rest of the day. The good thing is I did burn about 1200 calories in exercise on Saturday by walking, going to zumba, speed bowling (we only bought an hour and wanted to finish a second game), and basketball. Then we had Easter brunch at church and Easter dinner at my house.

In conclusion, I’m not giving up! I will eat healthier this week and work out more! I already went to zumba yesterday (better than last Monday), and I worked out this morning. I plan to eat more veggies this week and drink more water. I got a bit lazy with that last week.

Okay, I’m posting this picture to remind myself that I am strong and that I rock!

  1. It’s hard to admit when you stumble, but…BUT…you’ve got that courage!! And the courage to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back to moving those mountains!! Keep that chin up and proud, Allison!! 😀
