So…I screwed up this week. Here me out.
I started out strong and even on the girls’ paint night that I hosted I snacked on healthy snacks. I walked on the treadmill but on Monday I started something new. A friend is selling a popular vitamin weight loss shake and I thought what harm could it do?
For three days I followed the recommendations and restrictions to a T. It was convenient to have just a couple of shakes to make and boiled eggs to pack for the day. Drinking my shake at the office made me feel fuller longer rather than waking up early and eating before 6 AM only to need a snack at 8 AM. I love boiled eggs and the deli meat-lettuce roll-ups were awesome (I think I’ll add this to my regular snack schedule. During this time I ate sensible dinners and low-fat/carb EVERYTHING and drank so much water that I spent most of my time in the bathroom.
I weighed myself the day of starting my diet (again, Monday) and right on track with what I weighed the week before 178lbs. This morning…I gained. Basically, I gained a pound a day! I was mortified. What else could I add to my already stressful life!
Here’s to a week of working to get the weight off and goals.
