Post Vacation Weigh In
I weighed in under the Mr's corruption on Monday afternoon (I wasn't going to weigh in until today but he did and was down 10 lbs so I had to see if I was on the same track) and saw I was already down 8 lbs in basically 2 1/2 days of good eating and one strength training session under my belt so I was encouraged.
That brings this week's weight loss to 3 pounds (same for the Mr) meaning that only 3 pounds of vacation weight stuck around for me!
That I can totally handle especially given how much we emotionally fed ourselves the first week after the let downs and then because our friend had this awesome restaurant literally 2 minutes from the house, we got used to what we called "second breakfasts." The roosters start crowing at 4:45am there. To the point I wanted chicken for lunch if you get my drift. We were always up by 6am. So we'd eating eating cereal and sweetbread toast with pineapple jam or toast with pineapple. By the time we'd get on the road at 8-9am for our day we would have that painful "pit hunger" and head down to Sam's for 'second breakfast.' I know, not the smartest habit to get into. But I thought that would really eff us up this trip and thank God no more stuck around than what usually does, so I'm pleased with my results. I'm also very happy I get to retain my 200 lbs lost title. Whew!
Today is a controlled splurge day but not "high cal." We're staying within our limits but still having cookout food so we don't feel deprived. Before we were on this adventure, this would be the weekend we'd blow the weight gain from vacation even further off the charts and have a 3 day oink fest. We haven't done that in 4 years and still get in all of our favorites. So it's lean sliders with BBQ chips and baked beans for lunch and chicken brat with the same side for dinner. The sodium is going to be a little out there but I need to chug my water that I've been doing so good at for the past week.
Now on to shed the next 3 lbs and get back to business!
What are you doing this holiday weekend?
