I was really glad to be done with the 5K's. It was a challenging goal for me and I feel really good that I was able to achieve it. Thanks for hanging in there with me through my ranting and raving about the walks...AND the pouting each night before I had to do it!
I had mentioned that we were going to shake things up with this last 5K. We were going to walk it outside as a family, but I am suffering from some pretty nasty allergies right now and there was a bit of wind last night...so ultimately I decided to walk it inside and get caught up on the latest episode of Nashville. I'm not loving that show right now...I think I may have to part ways.
This morning was my weigh in. I was pretty excited because I had worked hard on the exercise side of things this week, AND had a really good week where my eating was concerned. Imagine my utter disappointment when I stepped on the scale and saw this:
That, my friends, is a gain of .6 lbs. from last week. I have no words. I feel pretty devastated about it.
You know, people make weight loss seem like a simple equation...calories in calories out...but there is no way that is true because my calories in vs. out this week would NEVER lead to a gain.
So what the hell???
I'm frustrated, yes, I'm trying to focus on my other accomplishments this week:
- I worked out for 5 days...something I have NEVER done.
- I walked 5 5K's this week!! I mean, that is awesome!
- I really did make good choices with my food, even trying out a new recipe that I thought was pretty darn good.
Still, the point of all of this is to see the scale go down...and the fact that it didn't...well, it sucks quite frankly.
Am I going to cry? Probably...I won't even try to lie about it. It's a blow. If I can't lose weight after the week I just had...well, it makes my ultimate goal seem pretty far away.
Yep, I am going to call this my worst weigh in ever. What a crappy way to start May!
Seeing Iron Man 3...and from what I hear, I should expect to love it!!!
Hiking to Silver Lake in Big Cottonwood Canyon with some friends. I am not sure what the weather is going to be like up there...but I'm hoping its good!
Housecleaning...boo! A necessary evil.
Yard work...boo! Another necessary evil.
Other than that, hopefully some time to decompress and recharge my batteries for the week ahead!
Have a great one yourself!!
