The blame game/weekly weigh-in

Again, with the sideways pic??

Yeah, well the scale is UP. So, let's play the blame game. First, let's blame TOM. He's been camped out for 11 - ELEVEN - friggin' days. And shows no sign of leaving. Ugh. Second, let's blame the three Mexican themed meals in the past two days. Cheese, cheese and more cheese. Not to mention tortilla chips by the pound. And cheese. Finally, the birthday cake. Or, to be more specific, ICING. Creamy chocolate icing.

But, now I am overcoming my transgressions - well, at least the ones I can control. I've given the cake away. I'm just saying NO to Mexican. In fact, my band is mad at me this morning. I got stuck on my first sip of coffee. So, I will be doing liquids for a few days just to give my poor overworked band a rest. Thank goodness my birthday only comes around once a year!!!

All-in-all this gain isn't as bad as it would have been pre-band. I probably would have eaten the whole cake instead of the icing!!!

I've set a mini-goal for myself. Originally I wanted to lose 38 pounds this summer....BUT I haven't. SO I want to lose 10 pounds by the time I go back to school (in two weeks....three weeks with students) I am going to:
  • Drink my water. At least 64 oz/day. Shooting for 100
  • Exercise like a fiend
    • 3 miles @ the track in the morning
    • Biggest loser 3 times a week
    • Zumba 3 times a week
    • Strength training with my bands
  • No junk: Cheetos, m&ms, fried crap, take out....
So ladies, YOU have a job. Be wonderfully supportive like always - it helps keep me accountable!!!


  1. I think you get a pass for your birthday week and TOM! Sounds like a good plan! You can do it!

  2. You can absolutely meet those goals!

  3. 11 days!!!


  4. Birthday weeks are for no calorie counting. You get a pass but now it is back to business, Girlfriend.

  5. You can do it! Junk food is hard to quit, but the scale sure likes it when you do. It won't be easy - but it can be done. Go for it.

  6. Oh, you got this girl! Absolutely!

    Every one slides on their diet. But as long as you pick yourself back up and start over to the 'new and improved' diet/exercise....all will be ok.

    Goals are good, goals are great, goals help us lose that WEIGHT! (I'm so corny.)

  7. UGH, I was OTR for about 11 days this month, too. What's that all about? :(

    I know you can do the 10 lbs if you commit to it, I'll be cheering you on!

  8. 11 days sucks. I had one once that was 2+ weeks. torture! And make sure you're getting Iron!
