I feel like I haven't posted in, like, forever. This week was just a total whirlwind. I worked late almost every night, we were gone all day and most of the night for 4th of July, and we had our final adoption home study interview plus an impromptu birthday dinner for my sister-in-law on Thursday, to name a few things that went on. I didn't track my food this week...and I didn't really plan ahead much either. I overdid it with my intake on Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday but ate pretty well the rest of the week. Four days out of seven ain't bad, right? :) I exercised on Monday, and that's it.
I don't want to make excuses and I'm sure you don't really care what reasons I have for not sticking to my plan. I guess I just had an off week (again). So I'm just going to say that I gained 1.4 pounds this week and I will try harder to do better next week.
My plan for the weekend: 1) Track my food. 2) Do something active on Saturday - probably hiking.
We have a BBQ to go to on Sunday afternoon and I was asked to bring a side dish so I'm making a great corn, tomato and avocado salad. I hope to post photos next week...it's delicious, healthy and fresh. Perfect for a hot summer day, and it's going to be almost 90 here on Sunday.
I promise you'll hear more from me next week...things should be slowing down for a couple of weeks at least. I would love to get these last 7 or 8 pounds off so I can get back to the lowest weight I've known as an adult. It's not too far away yet it's been so hard for me to get there...partly due to my own self-sabotaging setbacks. I do want to be successful though...I promise you that. I just seem to have the hardest time concentrating when my routine is interrupted - whether it is due to a vacation, work, my family, etc....and it seems to happen often.
Well, I must get going, it's late and I want to be up early tomorrow. Thank you for your love and support - I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
