I'm going to go ahead and weigh in today. I kind of don't want to, because I would be all happy to weigh in Wednesday and maybe be down even more - but then I'd be getting greedy. We'll see.
I weighed myself on Friday and I was 249, and I weighed myself today and I was 249, so we'll let it stick and hope it survives through the week.
Which is a concern for a couple reasons:
1.) I'm going camping, and I don't know if that will be good or bad for me food/weigh-wise. It could be good because I'll be more active, but it could be bad because I won't be weighing or logging my foods for about 3 days.
2.) It's almost my time of month, which is a bummer for more than the obvious reasons (weight gain, feeling miserable).
I can't believe I didn't look at the fact that I'd be more than likely getting a period around the time I booked our camping trip with friends. I seriously. Can't. Understand. Myself. I just hope and pray that it isn't a misery period. I apologize for the TMI, but I'm having a slight moment of panic. Camping and periods don't really go in harmony.
Besides that it is going to be hot. Like over 90-degrees hot. I don't like heat.
All these things for me to worry obsessively over, and I will.
But back to my weight - hell-LO?! I made it out of the 250s in July!
My weekend went well - I did good on Saturday. I'm sure I went over calories, and I had a few drinks, but I didn't go hog wild.
Yesterday I "treated" myself to one bite of a pizza. It was a treat, and honestly - it was enough. I didn't expect that at all (for it to be enough).
So this week challenge has been interesting and fruitful. I plan on continuing with the same ideas through Wednesday. I'm happy with the loss. Now I just have to hold it. The next 2 weekends are booked with trips, which I know will make it difficult. But I should be able to manage it.
It is VERY hot here this week, and extremely busy for me. I don't know if I'll be able to get on my longer walks, or to the gym. So I'll have to fit in steps other ways. I'm aiming for 30 minutes per day for the next three days, but it will be a challenge because of my schedule.
3-Day (Possible 5-day modified) Challenge (calorie cycling again)
No drinks (soda or alcohol).
Walk 30 minutes a day (minimum 5000 steps on my Fitbit).
Track my food.
Drink my water.
All of those are important.
While I'm on vacay, I'm just going to stick to my eating plan, move as much as possible, enjoy myself as much as possible (not with foods, but with activities and relaxation).
Above all - I'm going to TRY not to worry about it or sweat it too much. Keep myself accountable, but relax if I can.
One other thing - my scale (the food one) broke. I'd love to say I don't need it, and I don't too much. I pretty much know what a serving size is of the foods I eat. BUT I'm not there yet, and I need it still. The one I've been using is a postal scale. I'll have to see what I can find ASAP.
