Double digits, can you believe it?? There isn't much in life that I have stuck with for 10 weeks in a row, so that is noteworthy in its own right. Happy to be here another week and share my progress (or lack thereof.)
I did not lose weight this week :\ Actually, I did but by the time Monday rolled around I was up again. It makes me think of that Paula Abdul song 'Two steps forward, two steps back...'
I ate well all week
I had my typical indulgent Saturday, but I tracked all my food and was within my calorie goals basically all week. The gain I am just attributing to normal cycle fluctuations and possible water retention from a gnarly smashed finger incident that happened over the weekend. I'll spare you the gory photos of my purple nail.
Pizza is my Lenten sacrifice this year and man do I miss it. Not having a pizza crutch to fall back on when I am feeling too lazy or tired to cook dinner is a challenge, but I feel it saves the day on the calorie count. Honestly I was kind of burned out on pizza (at least the frozen kind) lately. My new lazy meal is to cook a giant pot of soup and have leftovers for days, lol.
Now for the
two five steps back:
I ate out a lot over the weekend
Eating out it tough because it is difficult to properly count your calories. We had taco cabana on Friday, which was easy enough, but you never know if they were heavy handed with the cheese in your quesadilla or whatnot. Then I helped my brother move a dresser on Saturday, so my reward for helping was more Mexican food, only add chips and salsa to the mix. Who even counts those? Then Saturday night before getting together with friends we got lobster rolls at this cute local place which doesn't have nutritional info online. Then out for breakfast Sunday and I get a waffle and who knows how much syrup I drowned that bad boy in? So on paper my calories were fine but it is all guessing. I assume the average lobster roll on myfitnesspal.com is close enough?
I didn't exercise
I just wanted to sleep in instead :\ No good reason why I chose not to work out. I think it was so much easier the last time I was rowing consistently is that the rower was in the living room and I had like 900 episodes of America's Test Kitchen on the DVR. Now the rower is in the office, so I can pull up the cable on the internet, or find a youtube channel to watch I suppose. I just haven't gotten into the routine. It is a new week though, and I am going to do better. Just need to get over that daylight savings time change, it has me draggin!
So here I am, coming in at 285.4, whomp whomp.
It got cold today, so I buried my girth in an over-sized sweater
283, I am coming for you, so look out!
