Those are my weights from Sunday and this morning. So, I followed up the gain from my week in Denver with a crappy weekend and another 2.6 pounds. For the first time in months, I am extremely unhappy with myself. I know I will lose these pounds over the next couple of weeks. But, I hate that I know that. It's nice to know that I can have the occasional exception and have confidence that I can make up for it over the next week. But, it doesn't mean I HAVE to gain the weight every time I am away from home. One great meal in Denver would have been fine. But, I don't need to pig out every single meal!
The worst thing are the exceptions I don't even enjoy. We had lunch at Bubba Gump's on Wednesday and my friend and I ordered the fish and chips and some dinner with three different fried shrimp varieties and some cocktail shrimp. Between all of the fried food and french fries, I felt sick the rest of the day. It wasn't even worthy of an exception! It was good, but not great. The non-breaded meals that I saw at the table looked way better than what I ended up eating.
I need to save the exceptions for the nights like next week when I will celebrate my son's birthday and the start of March Madness all on the same night with some chicken wings. I am good with that. But, four straight bad days that lead to another two over the weekend is simply unacceptable. I am better than that.
So, now I start this week 5 pounds heavier than last Tuesday. Bad timing since I am coming up on the year anniversary of this blog. Very disappointing.
