I just realized I forgot to post my usual Sunday update.
This last week was a challenge. Mostly dealing with my daughter’s Girl Scout Cookie sale (and the opened boxes the kids were sampling–and that I sampled as well) plus too much eating out topped by too much Pizza on Friday night.
I logged a no loss no gain for Sunday. It could have been worse.
I’m really struggling to get the exercise in right now. I’m going to have to do something about that. Exercise is always a challenge–due to time and fatigue.
It looks like me and my hometown team of Sparkers are going to sign up for a local 5k/Fun Run/Walk in April. This will be a nice piece of motivation to get me up and moving so I can keep up with everyone. The last walk I did was many years ago and I was the last one finished. It was embarrassing. I don’t want to do that again.
I won’t say I’ll run it. I’m just not there yet, and I don’t think I could get there by April. Running is just too hard on my joints and shins at my current size–BUT I will get to a very fast walk. I can do a 15 minute mile by then–if not better.
I’m doing better this week. Re-focused and staying out of the Girl Scout Cookies. It’s a wonderful fundraiser for the girls, but seriously detrimental to weightloss if you are the kind of person who has issues stopping at one–and I am that kind of person.
Friday is my tenth wedding anniversary and I plan to splurge a bit this weekend eating out–so I’m staying really focused during the week to keep from totally blowing my progress this weekend.
I managed to skip ordering the all you can eat pancakes deal at IHOP yesterday–and I can’t tell you how hard that was!–in favor of the spinach and chicken salad. I substitued grilled chicken for the fried chicken it usually has. It was very good–and satisfying. Still thinking about those pancakes though…
But I’m moving forward. This next Sunday I will be able to report a loss.
