I am absolutely frustrated with this gain. I tracked EVERYTHING that entered my mouth. Even the wine and chocolate I had on Valentine’s Day. I dipped into my weeklies, which is something I normally do. So, honestly, I don’t understand the gain. Dinner has been eaten at home every night this week and was all healthy recipes. So why the gain? Ugh.
If you’re keeping track that’s almost a 5 pound gain in 3 weeks. And I know why I gained a majority of it, it’s because of all that beer and food consumed during my AMAZING week in Colorado. But the gain this week totally baffles me.
The gain means I’m even further away from getting under 200lbs, which I want so terribly bad. But, I just can’t seem to get under it. I want to see the number 1 more than anything right now. Sigh.
Alright, I’m being a total Debbie Downer, so let’s mention some positives!
For Valentine’s Day, instead of going out to dinner, B-Fry and I picked out a healthy Hungry Girl recipe to make. It was pretty tasty and I liked that we stayed in and just enjoyed each other’s company. We’re going to go out tonight though, so that’ll be nice.
I made a new recipe on Tuesday night. I made stuffed peppers which we amazingly delicious! This was also a Hungry Girl recipe. I love her!
I’ve also been into making my own salad dressings lately. B-Fry and I got this awesome dressing thingy from Williams and Sonoma and it has dressing recipes on the bottle, so I’ve made a couple of those. And I’ve also made this pretty amazing dressing his grandma makes. It’s rather tasty.
I blame all this cooking and recipe trying on the kitchen in the duplex. It’s so spacious and the appliances are great that I can’t help but be in there! So, I’m sure there will be much more cooking going on!
Now let’s get back to this weight loss thing. I remember a time when I would set weekly goals to work on. For some reason (most likely laziness) I stopped doing them. Well, I believe it is time to bring them back. I obviously need to do something. This gaining weight thing doesn’t need to continue. I didn’t lose it to gain it back. So, goals it is!
* Drink 64+ ounces of water each day- I’ve been drinking a lot more pop lately and not enough water. So, this needs to change! Constant filling of my water bottle will be happening, along with frequent trips to pee! Lol
* Get at least a total of 90 minutes of activity this week- I haven’t worked out in forever. It is my utter downfall. I have the Wii Fit and several workout DVDs. So, there are no excuses. Plus I think a little friendly competition with B-Fry on the Wii Fit could be fun.
* Avoid wasting my daily points on snacks- This is easy to do. All those snacky things add up and just lead to more snacking. More veggies and fruit please!!
I think that those are some good ones to start out with. We’ll see how the go and I’ll report to you next week. Until then, have a good one!
