This past week, I was not Back On The Wagon. I was off the wagon. I had left the wagon far, far behind me and I was eating everything in sight.
Friday, for example, I ate everything I could think of because I was really missing my mom. At the end of the day, I was a ton of calories in the hole and I still missed my mom and I felt horribly fat and bloated on top of it.
I half-heartedly tracked all week. I would start each day with the best of intentions to do better that day, to eat more healthfully and mindfully that day. And somewhere between breakfast and lunch, I would say, “Forget it.” And I wouldn’t track for the rest of the day.
I will say that my only saving grace all week was that I exercised every day like a fiend.
Which is why, I guess, that my weigh in was good today. Better than good actually – this was the best weigh in I’ve had in a while.
This week’s weight: 160.8 lbs
Weight lost since last week: 1.6 lbs
Total weight loss to date: 11.6 lbs
WTH!?!? I have NO idea how that happened and can only assume that a) my scale is faulty or b) the week of wanton eating will catch up with me next Wednesday. The temptation now, obviously, is to assume that I can eat whatever I want and half-heartedly track and still lose weight this week as well. But I will not do that. I will be very, very careful this week so as to ambush those calories that are lying in wait. Calories are crafty like that, you know?
