Alright, this has to be a quick one. Well, quicker than what I want it to be. (I want to have a bitch-fest...but...) I have a little girl with a fever here, and another that went through the traumatic experience of having 3 people hold her down to draw blood today. So, needless to say, they require a bit of my attention.
Here is the rundown.
Eating: Very good for the most part. Lots of veggies/fruits, good portions. The last of the reese's were eaten, though...thank goodness they are out of the house now! The big problem was from Friday night until Saturday midday. We had friends over, and consequently, had high calorie food and drink. (sugary alcohol drinks, and pizza, and chips...bad Mandy.) Then Saturday, was our church's annual holiday dinner and bazaar fundraiser. We almost always go - and get all those yummy oysters, turkey, mashed potatoes, etc. Got back on later that night, but the damage was done.
Exercise: I fell down on the job here. I did do a couple EA Active workouts. And took the dog for a walk. I did another great yoga class. And I did, somehow, manage to get my #gruve to green every day. But, I definitely could have done a lot more. A whole lot more.
Emotions: I had a "monthly" visitor this week. (Sorry guys.) So that always makes me gain a little and get ridiculously ravenous. I find it hard to control myself. But, for the most part, I did. It definitely helped to see the other mamavation mom's tweeting out what they were up to. You all always remind me that we are in it together - and I don't want to let you down!
On to the scale. It sucks - the scale, that is. Really. I can never tell which weight is accurate. Step on 3 different times, it will show 3 different numbers. This time, I got it down to two numbers - either 192, or 194. I'm going to err on the side of caution and say this week's weigh in was 193.5 So, that is down 1.5 for the week. I will take that - I'm happy with it. Not ecstatic, but happy. It is just enough that I don't want to give up, and just under what I want, so that it pushes me forward.
(oh, and it is - apparently - really hard to take a pic with my crappy cell & get a half way decent picture. Sorry.)
There you have it. Down 6.5 pounds so far. Firmly in one-der-land. (I am giddy about this, and can't wait to be in the 80's again. I might wear leg warmers on that day)
See you next week!
