Mum and I in Quebec City
How has this impacted my efforts to loose weight... well its been a rollercoaster ride for sure! At first I was good, I went to Weight Watchers the first two weeks after Mum had passed.
Then there was a two week gap, my excuses? The end of the school year was insanely busy! I also felt like I had been eating non-stop for over a week! There were meals out, and treats galore which were hard for me to resist/say no to. Instead of going to my meeting I was lured by the temptation of a day out with my friends Tracey and Christin. I also didn't want to face negativity at the scale like I did at the beginning of June. This past Saturday I didn't go to my meeting (on Saturday) for a good reason, I needed to get in to see my Sports Medicine Doctor as my Sinus Tarsi Syndrome has flared up again in my left foot. That appointment and the meeting conflicted, I couldn't do both.
Hair - after, being goofy at work us librarians can be quite sexy with a laser/scanner gun!
While Azra cut my hair (I have followed her around since 1997 and she always speaks frankly to me I love her to pieces), she talked a little sense into me. Reminding me that I had to take care of myself and that I needed to be in control of my life. That we don't have much if we don't have our health. This has resonated with me this week. I'm getting better and making the right choices, stopping when I'm full and I'm starting to track again, and doing my best to track my foods honestly. I'm also trying to move more. I never made it into the gym this week (I have made more of an effort to go this month) but I've gotten out for a couple of walks which I know is better than nothing.
I also have no excuse to not make it to a meeting or at least weigh in. I'm spoiled in this area there are so many meetings I could go to if not my own. Also less than a 5 minute drive from my work there's a Weight Watchers Center! Today I was resolved to go in this morning during my break (I'm visiting friends this weekend so I can't go to my meeting). I couldn't stay for the meeting but at least I made it to the scale. Despite two weeks of destructive behavior, no tracking and bad food choices the result wasn't as bad as I thought it was.
After a two-week hiatus only a 1.2 lb gain. The up side? I have put back on ALL of the 3 lbs I lost.
