For Shame

Welp, I'm up a half pound from last week.

Disappointing... for sure... but honestly, I'm not too discouraged and am just continuing on as if nothing happened.

#1 I have been very sick since Saturday and I just haven't had the energy to get as many workouts in. So I only worked out 4 times instead of 6.

#2 My usually dead, dead, dead social life was in an upswing last weekend. I had a party (one of those product ones... but still... I'm desperate for any kind of social life, so it counts), a crazy full day of shopping out with the family (and 2 restaurant meals), and Mr F and I finally had a babysitter and really lived it up on one of our only dates out in the last 8.5 years (seriously people... I think we've had a babysitter less than 8 times the entire time we've had kids). So that ended up being 3 nights I went over my calorie limit.

Lesson learned... 6 days of cardio and sticking to my 1450 limit worked... working out 4 times and overeating (within reason... but ... still a couple hundred over several times)... does not.

I'm human.

Forgive me.

The good news is outside of Easter dinner, I really have no more social events (or chances for sabotage) in the near future. Also, after our date we decided we'd much rather use that time to go out to a movie next time than eat anyway.

And, despite my hiccup, I'm still down 2.5 in 2 weeks... which is still good! My goal is 10 pounds in 10 weeks (4/6-6/15) and in the big picture I'm right on track.

And, yes, if I can gather the courage I will take progress photos.

I'm sorry you've been feeling badly! I hope you feel better soon and can get back on track. Let me know if you need anything!

I work out 5 of 7 days a week for 1 to 1 1/2 hours in the morning. I do cardio at various points of the day on the weekends.

Despite all that work, I have *gained* 3 pounds and am back up to 215.

Apparently, I have to starve myself.

Thanks Bets
I'm hoping I'm on the upswing

Shit you are putting significant time!
Also, my iPhone keeps trying to change Smitty to Smutty

change Smitty to Smutty

It would be an appropriate change.

I had to get back on the horse after the holidays. The holidays...back when I was baking EVERY DAY (no exaggeration) and eating what I baked EVERY DAY. I'm down ten pounds, but Easter was my set back, so I understand where you're coming from. I'd like to drop another five. My handy iPhone tool is MyFitnessPal. If you haven't used it, it might be worth checking out. If you've got something better, I'd love to hear about it.
