I’m not going to lie. It’s been a tough week. A daily battle of wills. DAILY!
I brought my cute little pink lunch box to work each day this week and only ate what was in it. I chomped lots of gum. I drank lots of water.
AND, I MAINTAINED! Whoop! Whoop!
Actually, I may have lost a pound. I’ll know in the morning. (I always write the post on Thursday night and weigh and then publsih on Friday morning.)
If you were praying for me, I thank you. If you even thought “I hope she has a good week.” I thank you. I do not claim myself to be the winner of this battle, but my God who is whispering in my ear that I really don’t need that delicious looking piece of cake or a hamburger or some pizza.
If you are wondering what the big deal about this week was… My company does a yearly conference. It’s next week. To say that it has been a stressful week would be an understatement. One think I know about myself – I’m a stress eater. In a BIG way. But, I knew it was coming. And, I had a plan in place. Thankfully, I was able to stick to that plan.
Next week is conference week. I have VERY little control over the food that I will eat. We’re fed in mass, and we’re fed well. But, I’ve got my plan. I’ve got my protein bars that have been my breakfast as of late. I’ve got my flavoring for my water so I won’t want drink a Diet Coke. I’ve got 100 calorie snacks to grab instead of grabbing a Snickers. I think I’m ready. I’m bringing my walking shoes and workout clothes and will hit the treadmill in the hotel hopefully. If I can’t make it to the gym, I’ll take some laps around the arena at a brisk pace when I can.
I have a plan, and I will persevere!!!!
This week’s loss: 1.5 – CANNOT even believe I lost this week.
Total loss: 15.5
Percentage lost: 6.9%
I’m heading on over to Giving Up On Perfect to cheer on the rest of the Losing It ladies! Well, I’m going to go over there tonight as I sit on the couch with my hubby. It’s become my favorite part of Friday night – seeing how everyone is doing and encouraging them all. LOVE the community that has formed around Losing it!
