This is what I have gained over the past two weeks. In 14 days of binging and emotional eating and drinking my way through baby funerals, birthdays, wedding showers, my period and Friday the 13th…..this is what I gained. a pan of chicken
a male lemur
a bag of corn meal
So, I went this morning. I knew it was going to be bad, because even though we did the 6K jaunt yesterday, I drank several celebratory tecate’s and went to Chili’s for dinner. Even though I drank tons of water, and had a big cup of strong coffee for that morning “cleansing” I knew I’d been waaaaaaayyyy off program for two weeks to not show it on the scale. So. Deep Breath. Regroup. Weigh In. Own that freakin number and move on.
This is what I look like moving on.
Have been working around the house like a madwoman. The sun is out for possibly the only day this week and it is my crack cocaine. I just grocery shopped. Mostly the perimeter for freshness and goodness. Mind mapped what my food will be this week and here I go.
It’s easy to backslide round this time of the year I suppose. We get off to such a frenzied and manic start at the beginning of the year and I just fell off the wagon. I’m committing to fitness of some sort this week. I’ve been whining and talking and blocking myself out of it for weeks now and so I’m telling you…it starts today.
May 12 is four weeks away. Chrome is coming home and it’s going to be a great party. That gives me a small goal to work towards. (Chrome, I got an email from Shua and he says he’s coming too! We need to tag team that boy and force the hand.)
It’s gorgeous here. I’m going to put away groceries and work in the yard a bit. That will be my activity today. Tomorrow, either a walk out of doors or to the Y for me.
Hope you’re having a great day. How was your weekend? What do you have planned for this week?
