Ok, I know I haven't really been on track the last week or so. I didn't post my weigh-in last Friday - mainly because I was really ticked off! I weighed in and lost NOTHING... that's right - nada! How in the world can I lose nothing - especially after walking nearly 40 miles on the treadmill and eating super healthy. I was really depressed about it and so Saturday and Sunday I ate whatever I felt like eating and I did not exercise... I didn't really OVER do it - but I did eat more than I would have usually. Oh, and Sushi on Sunday was AMAZING - I swear I felt so much better afterwards... probably because I had been CRAVING it like a crazy person for more than a week.
Then on Monday I was starting to feel better - I decided to hop back on the treadmill and get right back on track. It was torture - I almost quit a dozen times and kept telling myself over and over, "You can do this Serena!" I really struggled to walk for an hour - but I did it! I did not, however, feel up to taking the kids for a walk so we ended up skipping that...
Thankfully, Tuesday was a better day and I not only took the kids for a 40 min walk but I walked effortlessly on the treadmill for an hour. I decided to keep my walks on the treadmill at an hour - instead of challenging myself to do 1 1/2 hours... keep it simple for now - I can always grow into more time later. I also SPLURGED on cinnamon buns from Ikea - I've been craving those since the weekend - so much so that I almost drove to Ikea on Monday night to get them but talked myself out of it and decided I would go Tuesday morning instead. The kids were SUPER happy - I don't typically give them those kinds of things - we snack on fruit around here... so that totally made their day. I was amazed how many points those things are - 6 points for 1/2 of a bun! Seriously, who can eat just one half?
Today, I'm in a bit of a mixed mood - I'm feeling really good emotionally, but I'm also feeling really lazy... maybe it's the weather? I decided not to walk this morning - who knows - I may talk myself into walking this afternoon, but as of right now - I just don't have it in me to get on the treadmill.
That's where I am at... I'm hoping to get back to my usual weigh-in and workout Wednesday post next week! =)
