Wow it's been almost a week since I have posted and my body can certainly tell. I will be catching up on all of your blogs throughout the day...I can't wait to see how you are all doing!
Last Monday night, there was an unexpected death in Scott's family so Tuesday night Scott and I hopped on a plane and headed for Toronto. We just got home Saturday night at around midnight so I have been trying to recover from the 17 hour drive home ever since! What a long week. So that is basically why I have been in hiding for the past week. The whole family basically picked up from New Brunswick and headed to Ontario so we were all cramped into Scott's aunt and uncle's place. My diet consisted of whatever they offered to feed me. The majority of it was egg salad sandwiches and hot dogs and hamburgers...thrown in with cookies, ice cream, jelly rolls and more cookies of course. It was a disaster diet wise. We had nothing to do since we didn't take our own car up so we basically ate and ate and ate. So I decided to face the music this morning and jump on the scale. I was NOT happy at all but I wasn't surprised either. 7 lb GAIN......7 lbs!!!!!!! I know some if it must be water retention so I am not too worried about it coming back off. Weight that comes on very quickly also tends to leave very quickly. I am back on my meal plan today and I am as devoted as ever. I have a wedding to go to on July 7 and I am gonna need to take off this 7 lbs to get into my dress!!
My plan for this week is to stick to my meal plan to a tee and also get in some cardio...it has been about 2 weeks since I have gotten a good round of cardio. I feel awful. I hate the mirror and I feel lazy and sluggish. It's so easy to get out of routine isn't it? But it's so hard to get back into it!!! Grrrr....why do I do this to myself??? I am just praying for a good weigh in on Saturday. I know I can do it, I just need to stay focused on my goal. I would love to see the 140s in the next few weeks but the way I have been going, I'm more likely to see the 160s!!
I need some motivation......anyone??
