Yup you heard it right - I had a gain this week :( 0.6lbs. Not a huge gain but definately not a loss.
The first thing I wanted to do was make excuses - Im just finishing that time of the month and I did consume more than normal sodium amounts.
But then I sat and gave it a real thought. Pulled out my tracker for this week and relooked at all my food. I wasnt very honest with myself. The night of last weigh in I picked up mexican for G and I and none of that made it into the food journal. I told myself it was my weigh in day and therfore a day off... ummm no. I also ate a bite of stuff here and there that Im sure added up and no it wasnt on the tracker either.
So while yes I probually am holding on to fluid more this week because of the above reasons - I also didnt really do plan that well. Nor did I get the workouts I normally get in.
Following weigh in, I ran some errands with hubby and went out to breakfast. Feeling sorry for myself - I did what I normally do.... ate. I didnt go overboard with the pancakes I really eanted but I wasnt nearly as good as I normally am for breakfast out - 14 points for todays breakfast... BUT I came home and wrote it all down and took ownership of my eating. I REALLY want to wallow in myself today - its rainy, gray, cold and gross out. Im hormonal and totally bummed by my gain. I want to go out to eat Mexican tonight and have a margarita. I want to go to the new burger place tonight and have a bacon cheeseburger, fries and a shake. It would be so yummy! BUT no... will that really make me happy. NO. Will it be worth how I feel afterwards? NO. So it isnt happenning. Yes I will be over my points for today because of breakfast but not digging into a giant hole.
Its not just about the scale. I had good nonscale victories this week. I got to 545am spin class this week - huge victory for me. I felt great in my clothes this week. I had some great happy days.
