Halloween, actually the weeks leading up to Halloween, kick off the weight gain season for me. Every year I seem to pack on the pounds and when January 1st comes, I am shocked because I have usually set a world record for amount of weight gained. This year it WILL be different.
Last week at Weight Watchers I had a stellar first week with a 3.6lb loss. This week has been a bit of a challenge. Halloween parties, trick or treating, and the fact the Hershey's took a dump in my house has my resolve a bit weak. I did a scale hope last night and folks....it aint pretty. I am now doing damage control.
The bag of candy pictured was donated to the troops. The boys' school is collecting candy for Operation Gratitude. The kids got to pick out a couple of pieces and the rest was shipped out. I know it is their candy and I shouldn't touch it, but I am powerless to sugar. Plus they do not need it either. It was kind of sick that we donated a half full grocery bag full of candy. I can't imagine how many lbs that would equate to on my bod.
I am chugging water to flush out the salty and bad foods consumed over the weekend. Burgers, chips, dips, drinks, etc...
I started running again last night. It wasn't much and I have to build up the mileage again but I got out there.
No matter how ugly the journal looks this week, if I ate it it is in the journal.
The difference between last week and this week was planning. Last week, I planned having cocktails and high calorie foods....for one day. This week, I didn't plan ahead. Now I hope my "Halloweening" won't show up all that bad on the scale. *fingers crossed*
