Hidie-ho, good people! How the heck are ya? Did you eat well, exercise, take care of yourself this weekend?
I did none of those things.
This weekend entailed two trips to visit family – in-laws on Saturday, my family on Sunday. Both trips were for major events: Saturday was a funeral (my husband’s Great Uncle), Sunday was a Christening (for my twin baby cousins). Talk about the circle of life – remembering the life of someone who lived to be 100, and celebrating the start of two new little lives.
Saturday I was on my own with the girls at my in-law’s house while they went to the funeral services. Left in a house that is NOT on a diet, which meant lots of chips, cookies, cheese, etc. I’m sure you can conclude what happened there.
Sunday was a 5 course dinner after the Christening, which was delicious, but a LOT of food – and yes, I ate it all.
Where did my resolve go? Why do I let it just disappear at times like these? These are the mysteries that I’m still working to discover. I should have prepared for my in-law’s house by bringing my own food – lesson learned. Going to a function like the Christening just requires that I remain focused and present, and STOP EATING when I’m full.
So, now it’s Monday. I’m coming off a 1/2 pound gain from Friday, and 2 days of eating with abandon (and no exercise, natch). I’m going to try to make up for it by eating 1,200 calories a day for the next four days. Just until my weigh-in on Friday, just to get my head back in the game. Hopefully I can head off another gain this week at least, and get back on track! I have also bought a body fat scale monitor to keep track of my body composition.
