Weight lost/gained this week: -.01 Total lost since highest weight: 72.9 Pounds to go: 27.1
Challenges: The weather is finally cooling off and I swear that my body craves carbs and sweets because its trying to fatten up for winter. Guess what, Body? We have heat inside and in our car – there is no need for extra fat this winter.
I traveled to MI on Friday and left for DC on Sunday. I will return from DC later today. This photo looks different than my other Weigh Yo’Selfie Wednesday Posts because I took it in the gym at my hotel in DC. They gym was full of people and I would have felt really silly if I had moved the scale over in front of the mirror for a photo – I am just not confident enough to take scale selfies in the gym in front of strangers.
Non-scale Victories: On Saturday, I attended a child’s birthday and turned down the cake and pizza. I did not turn down the Reese’s cups though (fail). I planned ahead for my conference and but indulged while eating out. I balanced my trip by bringing packets of protein shakes and my blender bottle to have during lunch. My new Mantra? Just because its free/included with the conference does not mean I need to eat it! There were tons of vendors giving away all sorts of snacks and candy. I mostly avoided it! I had the opportunity to dine at a restaurant in DC with a Michelin Star – the Dabney and I tried everything that my party ordered. I didn’t leave stuffed, but I was full and it was amazing. I am fine with this week being a maintenance week
Goals for Next Week: I’d like to cut back on the fake sugar and flavors I’ve been consuming lately. Its fun to find lower calories alternatives to some of my favorite items, but I’d like less fake sugar in my diet. I was away from home every day but Thursday of this week – it’s time to stay home and do some cooking!
