Last week’s weight: 152.4lbs
This week’s weight: 152.8lbs
Total Loss: -12lbs, this session: -4 lbs
I don’t have much to say about the gain itself. There’s a high probably it’s a direct result of the fact that I was wearing workout pants rather than the Old Navy compression capris I usually wear for weigh in. That said, even though this .4lb gain probably wasn’t a “real” gain, I don’t expect I would have seen a loss this week regardless of the pants I was wearing.
First of all, I went a little overboard this past weekend at the boy’s annual Festivus party. All the Jameo and ginger ale certainly didn’t encourage the scale to move in a downward manner. I didn’t track a good chunk of the weekend which is always a kiss of death for me. Along with just plain not tracking, I also did a lot of “secret eating” over the past week. It wasn’t so much that I was activity hiding the fact that I was eating so much as it was self-denial. I would “forget” about things I ate and not track them. There was definite undocumented mindless munching happening last week as well.
For this week I’m focusing on dealing with the tracking issues. In addition to tracking, I’m going to journal my eats – hunger levels, moods, etc. This requires me to be even more cognizant of what goes into my mouth.
Aside from the tracking and “secret eating” issues, I actually had a pretty good week.
In terms of last week’s goals, I did most of the things I was hoping too. I averaged 5 a day on my fruits and veggies. (Some days I was short, but other days I had substantially more.) I attended the Kettle Bell Intervals class at the gym and did a core strength session; however, I missed my long run because I was really sore from the Kettle Bells class. I also did a much better job of drinking water on the weekend. I didn’t actually track so I don’t know how much I drank, but I did go out of my way to drink more water.
I also had a pretty awesome non-scale victory this week. On Saturday, I went shopping for a dress for my friend Val’s wedding. Not only was it not the usual soul-crushing experience for me, but I also left the fitting room feeling almost giddy. I found two dressed both in a size 10! One of the dresses is a bit tight, but since they were both a great deal, and I only need one to fit right away, I bought both.
Here’s to a fantastic week because I am so ready to see 150lbs!
