|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)....so 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....
