This is my first post in five days and I wish I had better news to share. First, let me say my absence was due to having a super busy week at work with a couple of late days that zapped my energy and brain. Unfortunately, most of July should be equally as busy. Except for the third week of July, which will be a week of long off-site meeting days, I will try to post more often. Okay, back to the reason for this post…the weigh-in.
Previous weight: 383 lbs
Current weight: 382 lbs
I lost one pound this week. I won’t cry over these results, but I’m still disappointed, especially because I was down 3lbs when I had weighed in on Wednesday morning. I also failed my challenge for this week. If you recall, the challenge this week had two components. The first part of the challenge was to only dine out (or have take-out) once between Tuesday night and Sunday morning. The other part of the challenge dealt with cooking one meal for my husband. I only completed 50% of this challenge. Which part do you think it was? I didn’t cook for my husband. I helped him prepare several meals, but I didn’t cook up any magic on my own. I will cook for him this week though. We ate at home every night except for Thursday. Thursday, we went out for Mexican. That alone did not account for my minimal loss this week. I would blame that on big portions this week, the chili dogs I ate yesterday and these:
I know I slacked off this week and I really don’t want to continue this way. I need to be stronger and I need to stop snacking. I can do both. Even with the barbecue on July 4th, this will be a better week. It has to be.
The sun is shining and is supposed to stick around all week. I hope do get outside and do some walking this week if my knee will allow it. I’ll do what I can.
How was your week? Any plans for Independence Day?
