    4/7/19 Mini Challenge
    Logged: Yes
    Under: Yes
    Exercise: 90 minutes bowling and some walking

    I am relieved that tomorrow is the last day I have to work before my vacation starts Tuesday! I am expecting tomorrow to be a crummy day, because that's usually how things like that go! My flight is Tuesday night, so fortunately I will be able to do my weigh in! Hopefully I see a nice change! I am trying to contain my excitement, but am having a hard time, because my last "real" vacation was nearly 10 years ago! I never did much more than a day trip since then! I will be going to the gym in the morning, to get this week started nicely!

    @cmhubbard92, I hope you enjoy your vacation immensely!! Arizona, is it?

    Thu-sat
    tracked: no
    under: no
    exercise: yes, lots of walking

    I blew it over the past 3 days. Saw one of my favorite bands Thu, had a going away party for a great coworker Fri and went to the Phillies game Sat. I was invited to something tonight as well but my body can’t take it, it is telling me it needs to be treated better again.

    Sun: no
    Mon: yes
    Tue: yes
    Wed: yes
    Thu: no
    Fri: no
    Sat: no

    Today starts a new streak!

    @erikNJ, you may have "blown" it, but you did have fun, and you were with other people. In other words, you were enjoying life!! It's when you blow it by eating that whole bag of cookies by yourself in front of the TV, that serious regret occurs!!

    Thank you!!! And yes! I leave Tuesday evening, will make it to Arizona around 1AM (home time). My boyfriend gave me two Game of Thrones books to read while I fly out and whenever I have alone time. My brother has planned a hike or two in Tucson, and we will also be hiking part of the Grand Canyon. There are a few museums I would love to check out, but I know that my brother *may* be busy with schoolwork, despite having taken a few days off from work. I know I will definitely be enjoying some pool time, and some yummy meals! This will be a very active trip for me, so I am sure I will be under with all the activities we have planned!

    Weigh in day: Sunday
    April week 2: weight today: 230.6

    This gain is completely stress related! This entire week was terrible! My husband was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday for what they thought was a heart attack. After sitting in the ER for 15 hours, and countless testing we finally got into a room. After a couple of days he ended up having a heart cath done. They found some small blockages, but one other blockage they can't get to due to where its located. So he's on a bunch of medication and we will see where things go from there. Anyway, I walked up and down the halls of that place so many times, but I barely ate anything for 4 days and I was a complete mess! We are home now and I seriously wanted to skip the scale all together. But, I had to remind myself that life happens. I didn't fail. I couldn't have predicted this. Today is a new day and I can start over. I am discouraged and a bit frustrated, but I will keep going. I am determined to have a loss next week.

    @bbmich23, I hope your husband is responding well to his medication and treatment, and I hope you both were able to take a deep breath and release some stress! And absolutely, this was not a failure on your part in any way...it was life. The pass/fail comes later, in a manner of speaking.....how will you rebound from this? You didn't actually gain six pounds of fat in one week, so the first thing you can do is start drinking your water, and yes, aim for a loss next week. All six don't have to go at once, just reverse the trend. (hugs)

    @Jl20alon2564, glad you were able to check yourself, before things got out of control. You've been doing so well, that a "maintain" week is not a bad idea, mentally. And the fact that you recognized that "crummy" feeling, and didn't like it, speaks to how far you have come in your journey! Food prep is the smart way to proceed this week. Well done, all around!!
