No video post today because my Friday was, yet again, comprised of me running around doing errands. Luckily I was up early enough to get it all done. And by early enough, I mean 5 am. Why? I have absofuckinglutely no idea but I decided to just roll with it and since I was up, decided to head to the gym.
I'm weird about wearing race shirts and usually will only wear tech ones, which luckily the Bernie Shuffle shirt is. Plus, hi, it has Bernie Kosar's face on it. LOL. What's not to love?
Then, of course, I headed to my Weight Watchers meeting. I will preface this by saying I once again had some struggles this week so I was not surprised with my .4 gain. I think there are two things going on: First, I think there's a weird mental game going on in my head related to losing weight. This is not new and the fact that I was so close to ten pounds last week was what I think made something go a little wonky. So I have to address that. The second thing is sugar. I was doing so so so well when I drastically reduced my sugar intake. But then, of course, Halloween hit and I let it back in and at the time it only seemed like a little bit here and there, but obviously not. So focusing on sugar is my goal for this week.
At the meeting, one of the things we talked about was identifying the high-risk days that will be coming up in the next few weeks as the holidays roll around. These would be days that will prove to be more of a challenge than just a normal day, like work parties and family gatherings and the like. In an effort to set myself up for success, as soon as I got home I sat down and made myself a calendar.
These are hanging in my kitchen, right above my coffee maker so I will be forced to look at them every morning. Right now I don't have too many Danger Days (as I'm calling them only 'cause it sounds better LOL) but as the months progress and more events pop up I'm sure I'll have more to keep an eye on. The one next week is actually mah birfday and I know I'll be going out with BC that night so I can plan in advance by working out that morning and racking up APs over the next couple of days. (Having my FitBit synced to my e-Tools is amazing, but that's for another post!)
Love from the ashes,
