Weigh in today. I've had better...

Weigh in this morning was disastrous. I gained 1.8 pounds!!!!!

I wonder why? Hmmm. Was it because I ate this, this week:
  • 3 Brown Sugar Cookies
  • 4 Ferrero Rocher chocolates
  • 8-10 pieces of hand made (by my boss) candy
  • 1 Krispy Kreme donut
  • 4 pieces of Dove Dark Chocolate

Hmmm. You think that might have done it???!!!

I'm taking lead from the WW meeting this morning and setting goals for this week. Hopefully my goal setting will keep me in check this week. Here's what I'm aiming for:
  • High intensity workout, 3 times
  • Walk for 30 minutes 7 days
  • Eat sensible or at least only eat one cookie or one piece of pie, etc. (this one will be tough on Thursday, but I'm really going to try it this time, not like Thanksgiving where it was a free-for-all feast)
  • Oatmeal with fruit, flaxseed meal and soy milk for breakfast
  • Egg white omelet with veggies and goat cheese (or something high in protein and low in fat) for lunch
  • Apple or almonds (or something high in fiber) for morning, afternoon, and evening snacks
  • 64 to 80 ounces of water a day (8-10 cups)
  • No eating after 8pm. Period!
I think those are doable. I think the high intensity workouts are going to be the key. That and to stop indulging! I hope. I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm right where I was TEN WEEKS AGO! This is for the birds! At this rate, I'll take me 10 years to lose these last 30 pounds!

This is a rough time of year to get through!!
I've decided to just do what i do this week, mainly healthy with a glass of wine and a piece of dessert thrown in. And i'll deal with the consequences next week!! Oh and hopefully a lot of walking :)

It looks like you've got great goals for the week, Cara!
Remember how hard it is to lose the weight the next time you're tempted with treats. Are they really worth feeling like this afterwards? Are they really worth another lost week?
Nooooooooooo! They're NOT!!! :)
I'm proud of you for not having given up & that you're persistent enough to keep going!!!
