No good news today…
Which means I gained about 1 ½ pounds.
What the hell am I doing? I am so close to my birthday goal weight and I am f**king it up!
What did I do wrong this week?
Well, for starters I haven’t been blogging as much, and I haven’t been consistently writing down what I am eating. Not to mention last weekend at the cookout were I ate 2 hamburgers, a hotdog, pasta salad and lasagna all in a 24 hour period. Or how about when I ate popeyes the other day and didn’t blog about it??
One thing I will say is this blog forces me to be accountable.
Okay, I am a grown ass adult trying to loose weight and I know what I need to do. I shouldn’t need a cyberspace dairy to keep me on track.
I wish it was that simple!
I seriously considered lying about my weight today… lol. Ok that would be stupid and only hurt me, but I want to do well, especially when I know people are watching.
I kinda knew a gain was coming; I even worked out twice yesterday, once at 7am and again after work, hoping that would help. I guess I should have thought about that earlier in the week!
Sooooo, I need to make some changes this week…
1. I need to write down everything I consume (how else will I know how many calories I am taking it??)
2. I need to try to blog at least 4 out of the 7 days. It will make me reflect on how I am doing.
3. WORKOUT! I need to get in a minimum of 5 hours of Cardio this week.
Seems easy enough. Lol
I’m not giving up on my birthday goal yet. I know 7 pounds is a lot to lose is a week, but that doesn’t mean it is not doable.
So, the first challenge will be this weekend- we are having a cookout at the house.
I know what you are thinking… “A cookout? Look what happened at the last cookout!” Is that going to allow you to say under 1200 calories for the day??
I don’t see why not. I am doing all the cooking, so I know what ingredients are being used. I am buying whole wheat hamburger/hotdog buns and I am making turkey burgers, black bean burgers, and pasta salad. I’ll have to take it easy on the pasta salad and the beer, but other than that I think I will be just fine.
Wish me luck…
…and have a wonderful weekend!
