Well time for another Weigh-in for the Spring Fling Challenge. If you recall it was a irregular weekend for me with Emma getting sick and company coming in on Saturday. Kinda nervous when I stepped on the scale Monday morning and saw that it was up 3 lbs! Thankfully most of that was bloat from my not so great sodium filled choices this weekend, but some of it stuck. Here are this morning’s results.
Current Loss: +0.6 lbs
Challenge Total: -2.8 lbs
I managed to Shred 5 of 7 days this weekend, taking both weekend days off. I am bummed to have not gotten it in, but family and life come first.
I made myself track all of my food points and here is how my week looked.
Wednesday 23, Thursday 25, Friday 23, Saturday 49, Sunday 35, Monday 17, Tuesday 17
I am allowed 19 pts per day, 35 flex pts for the week and normally count 3 APs for my workouts. If I use all these points, then I “really” only used 4 extra points. And that caused me to gain. I looked back to my prior trackers, and I normally only don’t eat my activity points and normally have about 5 of my weekly points allowance left. So this kinda brought 2 different things to light.
1) I need to workout to keep losing at the rate I have been. I should not consider this an excuse to eat extra points. My body isn’t to that point yet. Maybe it will be one day, but not today.
2) I need to divvy out my allowance points. My Saturday consumption included a Apple Pecan salad, 3 glasses of wine, pizza, tortilla chips, texas caviar and oriental slaw salad (which is made with ramen noodles and cabbage). Oh and I had package of fancy cakes. Can’t forget those 7 pts of sugary goodness.
So while I am disappointed that I didn’t contribute a loss this week to Team SynErgy (sorry ladies!), I have learned a lesson. Just because your schedule changes, you have to stay focused. And its not going to be easy, if it was I would have reached my goal a long time ago So head is up, moving past this slight roadblock and pushing ahead to seeing a loss next week!
How did you do…go share your experience this week with the Sisterhood!
