Recommitted, Week 6

Its time like this morning, after an indulgent Sunday evening, that sometimes I wish my weigh-in day was not Monday morning.  If my big meal out on Sunday would have been earlier in the week maybe my scale would have moved more in the loss direction instead of in the gain direction.  Its not a significant gain so I'm definitely not dwelling on it and I’m going to acknowledge my choices during the past week and then move on. 

Week 6 {06.20.11-06.26.11}

Beginning Weight {05.16.11} = 150.2
Wk1 = 147.4
Wk2 = 147.2
Wk3 = 145.8
Wk4 = 143.8
Wk5 = 141.4
Ending Weight {06.27.11} = 141.8
Wk3 Weight Gain = +0.4
Total Weight Lost = –8.4
*This was my first week with a “gain” --- its not significant and after the weekend I had, I’m not going to dwell on it!

My daily allowance = 29 points
Weekly additional point allowance = 49 points

Monday ~ 32
Tuesday ~ 33
Wednesday ~ 30 
Thursday ~ 29
Friday ~ 25
Saturday ~ 32
Sunday ~ 63 <--- yikes!!!

I earned 49 activity points and used 45 of them {34 on Sunday alone}
I exercised 6 out of 7 days {for a total of 9 hrs, 38mins}
I didn’t use any of my 49 weekly allowance points
{My program is set up to use activity points before using my weekly allowance points}

  • I had a pretty good week overall but Sunday did me in.  We went out to eat my my in-law’s for my SIL’s birthday celebration.  I enjoyed a turkey burger on a sesame seed bun with tomato, lettuce, mustard, ketchup, red onion and avocado with some fries on the side and a refreshing hefeweizen style beer PLUS chocolate frozen yogurt after dinner with candy topping AND an additional beer back at my MIL’s house.  That was in addition to the huge chocolate chip cookie I devoured mid-day after grocery shopping and the cheetos and pretzel M&M’s I had on Saturday after my 10k race.  It was definitely an indulgent weekend but I’m not going to let it get me down.  I was reading an article on WW over the weekend that stated “remember it was not one single event that led to your weight gain” so I just have to put Sunday’s big dinner out behind me and move on --- besides, it was worth it for all my hard work and determination lately and to celebrate my SIL’s birthday :) 
  • This week might not be much better with another birthday to celebrate ---my stepdad’s --- and the upcoming holiday and visiting family.  I’m just reminding myself to make the healthiest choices possible, to avoid mindless snacking and alcohol and to stop eating when I fell full.  And to remember how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time as well as how much better a lot of my clothes are fitting and how much better I am feeling about my body and how much my running has already improved.  This week will also be a step-back week with running and I’ll be skipping a “long” run this upcoming weekend before ramping up my mileage for the upcoming fall races. 

 

All opinions are entirely my own and are from my personal experiences on the WW plan.
