So, I've been a blog slacker. I haven't posted in a week and I have so much to share about my trip to New York. First, I have to charge my camera so I can get the photos off of it. I guess I've been a slacker in other areas too. Ooops.
On to the weekly check in for Journey from Muffin Top to Skinny Jeans hosted by Shortmama...
How did you do on our first month of the journey? Were you able to stay on track with the 3 simple changes you chose in our first challenge? Are there adjustments that you can see you need to make in order to continue to be successful at winning this battle of losing weight?
I was doing really well with most of my small changes. The one I struggled with the most was taking my lunch with me, especially when my schedule got crazy.
This week was a bit disappointing for me. I didn't get on the scale this morning because I got on the scale Sunday evening when we got home. I was aware that my trip to New York was not going to have a great effect on my weight loss journey, but figured I would be balancing it a bit with all the walking and stair climbing we did.
That turned out not to be the case according to my evil scale. I am apparently starting over. Last week I was sitting pretty at 5 lbs lost. Now, I am back at square one. It really knocked me off the horse, so to speak for Monday. I can't say that I didn't contemplate just giving up. But that passed and I am now getting up and dusting myself back off. I am really hoping that some of the extra weight that showed up can be attributed to a sneaky little thing that is supposed to be on a 28 day cycle, but showed up on a 21 day in the middle of a Broadway show (lucky I caught on to that early).
This weekend one of our local gyms is having a grand re-opening and is offering $0 enrollment. Usually they tack on fees elsewhere to offset that cost, but I am going to go check it out.
