No good news today, I'm afraid. I'm up. And not it a good way.
I did not do well with the food this week. And I missed shredding for a day or two (okay, TWO). So I know it is my fault. I can't PHONE IT IN as Jillian likes to say, OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I need to commit, apply myself, and all that jazz.
I can tell you why I did crappy with food this week. Not an excuse - an explanation. There were a few things:
1) It was B's birthday and I cooked his requested lobster dinner. And I ate lobster with garlic butter. It was glorious. But it doesn't look so glorious attached to my ass. I need to repeat this mantra every time I start thinking about overindulging. Are a few seconds of gastronomical bliss really worth never fitting in my pre-preganancy jeans again? NO. NO NO NO NO.....NO!!!!! And if you didn't get that...NO!
2) I had a big decision to make this week that consumed my brain and left little capacity to think about things like eating healthy. So I had fried chicken and potato salad. And frosted animal cookies. And the *#&$#@% leftover Easter candy. I felt terrible afterwards. I mean, really terrible - mentally and physically. Like a cased sausage. Rotund. Not good.
The good news is, I made the decision I was wrestling with and feel so very positive about what I decided. No regrets.
So now, I feel like I can more fully commit to my health. I will not give up.
Okay, okay. I'm avoiding posting my results but here they are:
Starting Weight: 182
Last Week's Weight: 178.2
This Week's Weight: 179.8
This week I will not HOPE for better results, I will MAKE them. So there.
