Wednesday Weigh In Frustration Edition
I’m up this week, dammit.
Only .2 lbs, but still. It means I didn’t move forward this week. And now it means my timeline is super tight. I’ve not dropped more than 1.2 lbs in any week since I started with this goal, and now my weeks and my goal are identical: I need to lose a pound a week in order to hit the goal.
I’m not really sure why I’m up this week. It was not a terrible food week. It was a very active week. I did have one “feeling like I need to eat all day” day on Monday, but I filled that with almonds and pop chips. It’s not like I was binging on french fries and Big Macs. And I was still under my calorie goal even with it. Maybe the salt from that? Maybe it’s that time of the month coming? I don’t know. But I’m annoyed.
This upcoming week will be a major challenge, food wise. Much harder than Thanksgiving. Here’s how it looks:
Wed: Busy day with kids doctor appointments, morning meetings and piano practice. No time to really cook a proper, healthy dinner.
Thu: Holiday lunch with my girlfriends. I plan on bringing homemade hummus and veggies and standing close to it.
Sat: NYC food crawl with a girlfriend during the day (I know, right???? I can’t wait!) and then a holiday party in the evening
Mon: Book club cookie swap.
To post a loss this week is going to be a challenge, no doubt about it. But if I don’t, I will blow my timeline. So I have to be aware, be concscious and not slip this week at any of these events.
Wish me luck.
