So apparently the past couple weeks probably haven’t been as terrible in real life as I built them up to be my head. If they had, I would not be down more than 3lbs. And clearly, they were better than the 2 weeks prior to my last weigh in when I was up 2lbs. Nonetheless, the last three weeks have felt like something of a disaster to me.
I had an awesome week after my last weigh-in. I tracked every day, I earned 31 activity points. I missed my meeting due to a doctor’s appointment, but I think I would have rocked my weigh in. The next week was pretty much a disaster across the board. It started with the Boston boming and ended with a lot of beer. I lost my ActiveLink on that Tuesday (or so I thought.**) This left me feeling sort of lost in terms of my activity which in turn led me to not track any of my food. This is ridiculous on both counts. I very easily could have estimated my activity points based on past activity, and not tracking my food because I “couldn’t” track my activity is the exact opposite of what one might call “logic”.
After a week of not finding my ActiveLink, I sucked it up and bought a new one last week. Unfortunately that cold I had two weeks prior returned with a vegance. Tracking sucked and I didn’t workout at all. Also have you noticed my lack of planning posts? Well, that’s because I haven’t been planning shit. There’s been a lot of eating out and a lot of thrown together “meals.” Last night was probably the first time I made a legit dinner in about a week.
All that said, I’m taking this weigh in as a gift from the scale-god and motivation to get my act together again. It’s 5 weeks until my birthday (holy crap!), and I would like to reach my 10% mark (148.8lbs) by then. It’s an aggressive goal, but I’m hoping it’ll keep me motivated. If I can do this well when I’m having “bad” weeks, I’m hoping I can kick ass when I’m on the ball. I’ll be back to my weekly planning posts come Monday. Remind me of this post in a couple weeks when tracking gets tedious again…
**Of course a week after I bought the new ActiveLink, I found the old one on a sports bra that had been washed and put away. I now have a very clear picture of what happened.
