Healthy Living: Volume #8


Last Week's Weight:  152.9
This Week's Weight:  154.9

Well.  Can't say I'm happy about that but I also can't really say I'm surprised, even though I feel like I did well in other aspects.

I had more of a cheat weekend than a cheat day.  We had Little Caesar's on Friday, which I always overeat because it's so delicious.  I ate some leftover pizza throughout the day on Saturday and we went to a diner for dinner.  That was some wasted calories because it wasn't even all that great.  Sunday was the Food Truck Invitational.  I didn't end up getting a grilled cheese like I wanted to but I got a gyro and then for dessert I had a cotton candy cupcake. 

I did better Monday-Wednesday but I guess having eaten all the bad stuff already I can't just knock it off, no matter how much working out I did.  I was happy with that regard, however, since I did workout Monday when I got home from work and Tuesday before I went to the Jay Z and Justin Timberlake concert, then I danced for 3 hours straight so I think that probably burned off the calories.

I'm going to try something new this week I think in that I'm going to try to have smoothies for dinner as opposed to making a big meal.  Not to say that smoothies are less calories than a meal but I can get my sweet craving in there all while getting my protein, fruits and veggies in there.  We'll see how that ends up going.

I also need to get my butt in gear and work out on the weekends.  No excuses!  The errands can wait.  Wal Mart isn't going anywhere. 

I'm hoping that I can get myself in a downward trend this week and not pig out on junk food.  My discipline is terrible and it's admittadely something I need to work on.  It's funny that I generally feel like when I'm trying to lose weight it's such a process but when I'm not trying I'll lose a couple pounds here and there.  I guess I'm more concentrated on it when I'm active in it.  I don't know.  I just need to stop making excuses and just do it.  It's only food, right?
