My online weight loss support groups does our weigh in on Friday. I maintained this week. I will take this as a victory, with how horrible I’ve been at eating this last week. I haven’t have not really done any exercise other than line dancing last night. I attribute that to my sun burn. I have not been in the mood to be in the hot sun when I’m nursing a blister-level sunburn.
I would say that the SlimFast/MyFitnessPal hybrid has not been as successful for me this week. That’s not to say it’s the fault of the products. Slim Fast requires a lot of will power, and a willingness to give up A LOT of my favorite foods. It’s those foods that got me where I am, it’s hard to turn my back on them. It’s like saying no to an adorably cute puppy sometimes. My pasta, and fast food, are so lonely without me.
That being said, it’s not the end of the world. My husband says his pants already feel looser. It makes me want to punch him the face. Not really, just an expression. Men always seem to lose faster than women.
Anyway…. on to the embarrassment that is admitting my horrible eating of the last week.
My husband and I went out for lunch. Once you cheat once, you cheat again. We got a pizza. I learned a couple things this day. Cheating only begets more cheating. Also, I cannot stop when it comes to pizza.
What’s not listed on this day is the Fro-Yo we had after our date night. I’m sure that adds another 200 calories.
I also am beginning to think I cannot really trust MyFitnessPal on calories burned on my “workouts.” I’m not sure there is anyway I really burned 1,457 calories last night. I was out for almost five hours. I know I dance more than half the time. So, 3 hours seemed fair. But I don’t think it was 1,457 calories worth of cardio.
Another common goal between all of these days if I haven’t been as good about drinking water constantly. My favorite water bottle was my parent’s house. My new water bottle got dirty quick. I do think I’m more successful if I’m constantly drinking water. Something else to improve on this coming weekend and week day.
