My week has been fair. I still have yet to make it to the gym, though I may go tonight. I have had a few things I've eaten which were off-plan--for example, I was craving guacamole all day Monday and had some Monday night, with chips--but overall, not too bad.
I hope this number holds through Friday morning's weigh-in! We shall see.

210.4 (official JC WI)
The irony of the fact that I officially lost 1.4 lbs this week is that I put in minimal effort. I didn't go to the gym a single time (though I did walk the dogs 5 nights, but that is far from vigorous exercise). I didn't eat all my vegetable servings each day. I had cravings for bread and for a bean burrito on two different days, and I gave in to them, resulting in 250 calories each day that were not planned or budgeted for.
And yet I lost weight.
WTF? What about the weeks when I've busted my hump and lost little or nothing?!
Oh well. I'll take it!

211.6 (at home)
211.8 (at official JC weigh-in)
Just a quick update to say that I officially lost 2.8 lbs this past week but really, am more just back to where I was before my sister's visit.
Hoping for a better week this week. . . . I really want to get under 210!

I have been slowly getting back on track this week. Yesterday I ate on plan except for not quite getting in all my required fruits and veggies. Still, I did get in three servings, which is better than I usually do when eating on my own.
I woke up today feeling exhausted and off. Not sure what that's about, but it certainly isn't helpful on a day when I have a lot of (mostly boring) work to complete for three deadlines tomorrow. Ugh.
In light of how crappy I'm feeling and how much work I have (which will likely keep me at the office until late), I've decided to skip the gym one more day. Yes, I would probably ultimately have more energy if I worked out, but I just can't face it today. I am dealing with a couple of other things personally--waiting to see whether I get a job offer, for one--so I am going to be gentle with myself this week.

The scale showed the exact same number this morning as it did six days ago, when I wrote my last post. Whew. Guess I didn't do too much damage with my off-plan eating this weekend. I tried not to go crazy, but I know I didn't always make the healthiest choices, and my exercise consisted of a little swimming, a couple of walks with the dogs, and A LOT of chasing after my nephew.
I had a wonderful visit with my sister and nephew! I will post some photos from the visit when I finish editing them (soon); I took 175 photos!
Today my gym bag is packed, I brought a healthy lunch to work, and I've just gotten started on the three liters of water I plan to drink today. Onward and upward.
