Why, Morton, how well rested you look! It must be so wonderful now that the little one is sleeping through the night
(Did that help?)
Things have been pretty wretched on my end. After all my big talk about keeping sh!t together and getting "right back on track" I feel kind of stupid. Yesterday was day 5 of eating way too much and exercising way too little -- for NO GOOD REASON. My only (potential) saving grace is that I'll be away from my scale Friday morning, so I'll be doing my official weigh in on Saturday -- which gives me an extra day to get my butt back on track. I'm hoping that I can reverse some of the damage.
I'm perfectly aware that I haven't actually gained the amount of weight that the scale says I have. That would be biologically impossible. A pound or two I could see, but not the multiple pounds that are showing up on the scale. I figure that if I can get just ONE day of enough water, low sodium, and not eating late -- that should get rid of the bloat and then I can see where I REALLY stand. Then I have two more days to exercise and eat toward the low end of my calorie range. That should hopefully get me back down enough that I'm at least CLOSE to maintaining for the week.
So I have a good plan, now I just have to IMPLEMENT it. I was hoping for a couple of good weeks before I went to Vegas. I was secretly hoping to be in the 170's before I left. But that's not going to happen, so now I'm just hoping to reverse this weeks damage and maybe see a little bit of a loss next week before I go and EAT EAT EAT (while WALKING WALKING WALKING, of course
) in Las Vegas.
Tomorrow I have to drive to Minneapolis/St. Paul for a conference, so 4.5 hours in the car isn't really exciting me. Then all day Friday I'm at the conference and then have to drive home. Yuck. Both activity AND food are going to be tough on Friday, so even though I'm getting an extra day for weigh in it's not going to be an easy day...
I hope everyone else is doing better than I am this week! Have a SPECTACULAR day!
