I did not want to weigh in this week, I did not want to step on the scale this morning, honestly I did not want to even get out of bed today, but I did. It wasn't nearly as bad as I expected.
I maintained this week. Which is totally awesome because I was thinking I was going to have another gain. I had a pretty tough week. Our niece got married this weekend and with that came lots of food, family, friends, drinks and of course cake. I love wedding cake. I actually did pretty well with it, only eating a half a piece, but they were kinda big pieces. So I don't think it was the food as much as the drinks. I am not much of a drinker usually, but something about my husband's family always puts me in a festive mood and the drinks flow freely. I had a great time and even without a loss it was so worth it.
I don't want to put my life on hold to lose weight, I want to be able to do the things I always do, just maybe make better decisions along the way. Summer is always hard with graduations and weddings and vacations and everything else that comes along, so this challenge is great because it is keeping me more in check.
I have gotten back on track with the work outs. I was trying on dresses to wear to the wedding and nothing fit right, that hit me like a ton of bricks! That was motivation. I had 7 dresses to choose from and nothing to wear. I didn't like the way any of them fit. I picked the best of the worst and went with it, but first I ran down to my basement gym and did 30 minutes of cardio. I have been doing it everyday since. My goal is to get in at least 30 minutes of cardio a day for the next two weeks, then I am on vacation. I want to see what two solid weeks of working really hard will do for my strength and endurance.
Oh and I have a friend that wants to train with me for the 5k I want to run. So even though I didn't lose this week, it was still a good week. I have a lot to work on in the next two weeks and I know that next Wednesday I will be typing a loss.
Check out the other sisters and see how they all did.
