Today is weigh-in day over at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. I talked a big game last week about how I was going to push myself and make sure I got into the 120s this week.
Want your excuses now or later?
Last week: 130.8
This week: 130.8
I amped up my work outs, adding two extra workouts to my normal 5. I also amped up my eating habits - 2000 calories on Saturday (justified of course by the 11 mile bike ride and the holiday) and 2000 in one meal on Sunday (justified by my family reunion). Not to mention this is the week (tomorrow morning specifically) that I saddle up the cotton pony and ride into the guest hut to live with AF for a few days.
HOWEVER, I made myself a promise and a I let myself down. Forgive me while I go all Jillian on myself for a moment. Excuses don't take the weight off. Excuses don't help me reach my goal. Life happens, holidays happen - part of my new way of life is learn how to deal with it.
Saturday I won't beat myself up for. That's just 300 calories more than normal and I did good with my exercise (although I could have stopped after just a couple of marshmallows). Sunday is just plain unacceptable. Fried chicken legs, mac & cheese, chicken and dumplings, fried okra, bread...pecan pie, a rice crispy square, and peach cobbler.
Today is a new day, and all that...
Hopefully you had more self control this week than I did!
