Weigh In 4/18

Well, I had my first gain this week.

 I did nothing I said I would do in my last post. "Otherwise I'll try to keep my eating in check in this birthday week." Famous (or infamous) last words. 

First off, the field trip was cancelled because of weather. It's been rescheduled for next Tuesday. So, I didn't go out with my husband on Thursday, and just decided to go on Friday. I had an Olive Garden gift card so we went there. I ordered the shrimp fritta appetizer, but I only ate 1/3 of it (my husband ate the rest of it later).  I ate salad, and yes, 2 breadsticks. My first bread, I believe, in months. 

Then we went shopping at Walmart for some stuff. There is a Starbucks right in front of the Walmart we went to. I knew I had a free birthday drink, so I went and got that. I got a Venti White Chocolate Mocha. It was delicious. I have no regrets about it. I struggled a bit at first with "cheating on my diet" guilt, but I reminded myself that not everyday will be a perfect D.A.S.H. day. So I drank it and moved on! 

I also worked out exactly 0 times last week. Nope, I wasn't sick; I just didn't. I have no excuse other than I was being lazy. My cycle was on from Tuesday-Sunday as well. Combine all of these things, and it's no wonder I gained 2.4 pounds for the week.

Anyway, I'm moving on and putting it behind me. It's a new week, and it has already started out well. I did an 11 mile bike ride last night. And I've done a 5k this morning. My eating was on point yesterday, too. I was fun to have my splurges on my birthday, but it feels good to be back on track to. I can seriously already tell that the bloat in my belly has gone away.

Onward and downward!
