Ouch. I can’t say I’m surprised. I did log the food I ate. And, I know what activities that weren’t logged because I didn’t do them.

I don’t have much to say. I could make excuses to rationalize how this happened (weighing in the evening vs the morning…lots of beer this week during my vacation….extra 500-1,000 calories consumed daily….little planned activity other than some yardwork….”earning” that beer, or two, after the yardwork….not exercising since “I’ve already done all that yardwork”). It sounds like I’ve redone my entire landscaping in 1 week, when in reality, I’ve overstated and overjustified what it represented.

I think it’s ironic that I then read this today…..Taking Back Control

I also feel the need to state this and I want to state it with the sentiment that I’m trying not to be a jerk, but more of a stream-of-consciousness sentiment….I am not posting this weigh-in in the vein of hoping to receive comments of “It’s OK” or “You can do it!”. Nor do I want to scare anyone from posting a comment at all (I sincerely appreciate them!!!!). I’m posting this so that I can stop thinking about it (purely selfish reasons). I need to state it and move on. This is part of the accountability I agreed to many weeks ago. I do know that it’s OK and that I can do it. Hoping to not sound like a jack ass, but I have heard it, know it, aware of it, and about half-assed believe it.

I will continue to give it a go and do my best to not be full of shit. All past sins have been forgiven. I’m moving on.

More to come…

(Now that I have had my armband back for a full week, I will post a screenshot of the week tomorrow)

  1. Well that sucks.
    You are against a strong, hurricane force wind. Small steps forward will give you progress and satisfaction when you reach your goal. Sometimes you get blown off course, or blown backwards.
    Stay the course. A set back, is NOT defeat. :)

  2. How are things going? Do you need a short term challenge? What should it be? All I can think of is – I challenge you to drink less beer than me this weekend. And I have a leg up as I’ve got a cub scout campout Saturday night. Go!
