OK, so that title is a bit dramatic, but I’m a product of the 90’s and when we angst, we do it with Alice in Chains.
During my crappy week, I stayed on track, sort of. I went over with my points a few times, I ate a little extra Halo Top ice cream, and I even had chips and Cheetos. 9 chips and 6 Cheetos to be exact.
I made a commitment to myself to reach my goal weight, and stay with this program, and that’s just what I intend to do! Even when it gets hard, and no fun, and when I even hate it just the slightest bit.
Here’s how the week shook out:
This week was my lowest weight loss so far with -1.2 pounds. BUT -1.2 pounds is more than none, and a whole lot more than +1.2! I wanted to lose a steady two pounds a week, just like I wanted to only get blue dots, but you know what? This weight loss thing is hard! And it takes A LOT of work! I know you’re shocked by that statement…
And seriously, that’s only 0.4 pounds to ten pounds down! Whaaaaat!
I reached 10 pounds down a little later in the week, but we’ll talk about that during the next Fitness Friday.
Speaking of blue dots, I got five out of seven this week. And that’s OK. My mindset has changed a bit, and I know that when I want to splurge, I’ll splurge. Sure, I may see less weight loss, or I may have to work out more. But it’s worth it to have the occasional 9 potato chips, or entire pint of Halo Top. Yeah, I did.
Last week, was too cold to run, and this week was even colder! So I started Slim in 6, (affiliate link) which I’ve been doing on and off for literally over ten years. It’s really good at targeting areas like your legs, love handle area, and back. Last week I did it twice.
I ate more processed foods than usual this week. Cause emotional eating is a thing, and it’s a thing that I do.
Overall, it was another successful week. Not as much weight as I’d like to lose, but still some, and I’ll take that any day over none!
