Weigh-in Friday!

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!


  1. Good luck!
    I just went through the same thing with the crap of not blogging and gaining. It sucks. But just get back on track and you'll do great!

  2. Hey you're still under that 200 mark! That's awesome. And damn popeyes for their buttery, delicious biscuts!!!!!! I must say though, lifting weights will change anybody's body and metabolism immensely for the rest of their life....cardio doesn't do it for me. :) Don't get me wrong, I'll sweat it out 3-4 times a week for 20 minutes or so. But, I hit the weights hard and heavy 5 days a week for sure. Anyways, let me get off my soapbox, I just love weights. :) And GOOD LUCK! and have a great weekend too!

  3. Carrie, I know you are so right about lifting weights, but I thoroughly HATE weights!! Not a good excuse I know… I need to get it in and I am working on in! :-) You’re right, being under 200 lbs is still something to be proud of! Thank you so much for the motivation and support!
