I woke up this morning bloated from two days of PIGGING (sorry Squiggy) out. I realized that I cant stay on track if I dont know how many calories I've consumed and how much I weigh. So, I jumped on the scale this morning. It was NOT pretty, but at least I know how much I weigh again.
And then I realized that I need to minimize what I eat again. So, instead of having eggs and toast for the 3rd day in a row (not good for my cholesterol anyways,) I will have my 1/2 cup of oatmeal with a tablespoon of honey for breakfast (but only when my belly grumbles.) I'm not sure what I will have for lunch, but dinner will be leftovers. My mom sent us home with SO MANY leftovers. It is kind of nice, because we are trying to eat everything we've got in the fridge before Friday when we leave to go to Florida.
Oh, and I hope to take the puppy out for a walk around the block today and do some work outside on the red raspberry bushes and flower containers (I havent cut anything back yet.)
So...the weigh-in, a day late.
I GAINED a few pounds. I am now down only 8 lbs since the beginning.
I FAILED at losing 20 lbs by Thanksgiving. But today is a new day.
I would like to lose 5 lbs by Friday before we leave to go to Florida. That may sound like a lot, but I think that most of the weight I gained is water weight from not drinking enough, and eating too much ham that was sent home with us. I think 5 lbs should be just right.
Wish me luck!
