Argh, my worst stretch since starting this journey in January. I gained again. I guess I can’t call it “unfair” since I did slip…ONCE…but I know the bulk of the gain is tied to stress and poor sleep. I’m staying the course and doing the best I can. After slipping into the Lay’s chips the other night, I got right back on track and have been on plan since. I’m still not exercising – I just haven’t found the time or the gumption yet.
In the past, I would have fallen off the wagon by now. I’d get discouraged and just quit. If I’m going to gain anyway, I might as well enjoy it, right? WRONG. I know I’m doing the right thing and eventually I’ll see it on the scale.
After yesterday’s -.73% gain, the scale was back down 1.4 pounds this morning. Still higher than my low but back down from that scary number. I was almost in a new decade! *whines*
My new food this week is a little bit weird. Remember when I mentioned I was eating salads with protein, usually deli roast beef or cheese? Well, I’m out of roast beef…but I have a ton of leftover meatloaf. So, why not have a meatloaf salad? It’s a little weird I guess but it tastes pretty good. Since the meatloaf was made with 90% lean hamburger and oats instead of bread crumbs, I figure it’s not a bad protein option at all.
Onward and upward to a better week!!
