Survived Irene and the restaurants
Sunday, September 04, 2011
I don't know what was going on but the closer it got to going to beach I started adding pounds.
Nothing changed, tracking food and not getting enough exercise but trying. I actually reached the highest weight I've been in a couple of years. Go figure. You can imagine my mindset as we headed to Myrtle to meet Irene.
Friday night and Saturday morning were windy with heavy rain but no real problems. Saturday afternoon the "guys" played a round of golf. We did eat out every meal but breakfast but I tried to make good choices. I was successful part of the time.
We had a wonderful time with these great friends but I was not feeling good about myself at all for the 7.5 hours home. Nobody to blame but me.
Just felt crappy looking at my body which made me just feel overall crappy about myself. Tuesday I got down to business!!! Tracking every bite, making better choices and doing some positive self talk. I had a meeting on Wednesday morning with two supervisors from GMU to discuss the program. (I supervise special ed student teachers for the university). I really like both of these people and usually have a great time bouncing around ideas. Wednesday, however, I felt stupid and it seemed I didn't have anything of substance to offer. I left feeling like a fat, dufus!
On the way home, more positive self talk. One of these supervisors emailed to see if I would like to get together for lunch sometime as she enjoys my company!
Continued making good choices throughout the week. I did not, sorry to say, get back on the exercise and know that I must.
However, I lost 3 pounds this week (pretty much back to the beginning!)!!! Feeling good about all of the good food choices I'm making and feeling much better about myself.
I will keep tracking this week and will start getting exercise in also!!!!
