I gained one pound back this week. I blame my children. And my mom came to visit yesterday, so I can blame her, too.
That single pound is a wake-up call in a couple of ways. One, the gap between my current weight and returning to the 200s is back to being measured to the right of the decimal point. Don’t want to go back there, so I need to be very good this week.
And, two, I’m going to need a plan for the summer. My kids were on spring break this week. That meant taking them out for lunch after their hair appointments. A little more take-out. Mom came to visit and we went out to lunch. (And then ordered grinders for dinner because I’d spent the day with my mom and had no dinner plans.) Grilled cheese sandwiches, complete with extra crusts to finish off. This week made it clear to me I need an advanced plan for the extended summer vacation, including maybe pre-making their lunches for the week or something.
I only used it once this week (kids and mom and all that), but I’ll be working it into my regular routine starting Monday. And just getting it unburied from all the stuff we’ve been hanging on it was a workout.
How’d you guys do?
