Pounds Lost This Week: 0
Total Lost: 22
Pounds Left to Goal: 28
No fancy photo this week, y’all. I lost zero pounds last week. This is not particularly surprising to me because, no excuses, I have not been eating like a person trying to lose weight. I have not been eating that bad. . . but I have not been eating that well either. Lots of travel, lots of temptation, and not a lot of will to pick the smarter option. This one is on me.
Brett is traveling for work this week, which means a sort of strange routine, but one where I do not have to feed another person anyway. I am usually able to live pretty cheaply and scrounge on weeks that he is away. I planning on taking the opportunity to use my extra free time to reset my diet and stay active.
On that active note, I am still sick. I stayed home from work on Wednesday, but I did not do much resting. Thursday-Sunday was travel, so not surprisingly my throat still hurts, I am still coughing, and my nose is doing weird things. I ran ONCE last week. (Though I did go on a walk at Rachel’s suggestion . . . yes, it seemed like I only had time for one!) I know I should give myself time to rest but I cannot see putting off running for another week. I am not completely sidelined, I just don’t feel my best. What should I do? Normally I kickbox on Monday nights, and I don’t know about that tonight either. URGH! Suggestions accepted!
On another health note, I can already see I need to revise my April Food Resolutions. While I managed to FAIL big time at eating veg two days last week, I want to keep that one because I think it is a smart option. My 5 ingredient rule is going to have to go, however. This is a busy month and I need grocery shopping/eating to be as simple as possible. I sent Brett on a few pick up trips and God love him, he is a guy and he is looking for what is easy. I want to try the 5 ingredient rule out sometime, but now is not that time.
Ideas for a new food rule? I need help people!
There is some cardinal rule of blogging that you should never post without a photo, so here is a photo of my beautiful friend and bride-to-be Stefanie and her bridesmaids from the shower we threw for her this weekend!
