Last week: 207.2

This week: 209.8

Gain 2.6 pounds. I expected this. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been chasing the train for the last 2 weeks trying to get back on track. I grabbed on 2-3 days ago and I am firmly seated back inside the focus/healthy train. I’m continuing my plan that I made on Monday with the exception that my would have been rest day on Sunday is now a workout day. I chucked out my Golden Grahams, which is the leader of my cheating. I’m back to my scrambled egg omelette for breakfast. I have baked chicken and green beans ready for lunch. Chili is in the crockpot for dinner. Fruits and veggies prepared for snacks, and I have a 4 gallon tub of water sitting on my desk today as a reminder to keep refilling my cup. Gotta get hydrated! So I am set.

My focus is high fiber meals until my next weigh in. The chili I made is full of beans, turkey meat, and diced tomatos. The whole pot is 2,687.5 calories. 1435 calories of those are beans, 920 calories for the meat, and 332.5 calories for the tomatos. I guessed at 10 servings so 1 cup is 269 calories. That’s being generous. I think I can get 12-15 cups out of this pot. 15 would bring it down to 180 calories per cup, but I’m going to wait and see.

My gym time is back on track. Tomorrow I have the Polar Bear run with  my sister. Last week I went to the casino the night before our Valentine run. I only got about 2 hours of sleep before I had to get up with her. That definitely affected my time because I felt like crap. Tonight I’m staying home so I will be well rested for tomorrow, and tomorrow will be punishment for 2 weeks of eating like crap. I want to take the 14.5 minutes I did last week and bring it down to at least 13. And our finish line picture will be epic.

That is all. Rough week or 2, I gained, but I have a new focus. I feel I just wasted two weeks and I could be in one-derland right now. That will not happen next week. I have about 2.5 weeks to lose 10 pounds and get in the hundreds before my anniversary. I think some of my gain is water weight from not drinking enough water, easily corrected.

10 pounds. 17 days. 100’s. I will do this.
