Well, they say that the destination isn’t most important but, that it’s the journey along the way. Let’s hope that’s true because this week, I haven’t fallen off the bandwagon… I just don’t know if I ever really got on.
I was so busy this week that most days I didn’t eat anything significant until 5 or 6 o’clock and since Aunt Flo made herself at home for a nice cozy visit this week, I spent most of my free time in bed, doubled over with cramps. I finished editing one wedding day, just to turn around and prepare to photograph another one. Not to mention my house was so cluttered with clean laundry I never had the chance to put away that I was feeling very overwhelmed by it all. I would say that the word “diet” didn’t really fit in with many of my plans this week, for sure. I envy people that can say no to a slice of apple pie or pizza, ’cause I sure have a hard time.
Plus, we have a new friend who is very generous and decided to bring over Indonesian food when I got home from my photography job on Sunday.
I’m already frustrated with myself, regardless of how much I go jogging…etc. But, because I promised to weigh in once a week, I have stayed true to that.
After much agonizing about stepping on the scale I was surprised to have lost 2.6 pounds! It’s probably mostly water but, it still makes me feel good to know I didn’t completely botch up my goal. I am pretty happy overall with this week’s success 🙂
I do hope, though, that this week lends itself to being a bit more flexible when it comes to fitting it workout times and, now that we’ve gone grocery shopping (which I loathe), I have ingredients to make low cal dinners. I have planned at least 3 weeks worth of recipes and hope that I can stick with indulgence in their healthfulness. I find that mid-week meals are usually easier for me than the weekends, when I’m around my friends or out to eat. Do you face the same problems? What is your favorite mid-week meal/snack? How did you do with your weigh in this week?
Home-Style Meatloaf is one of my favorite easy things to make. Click the link to get the recipe and try it out on your family tonight! My husband and step-son love it and it’s full of ‘good for you’ yummies. 🙂
