Up .8. I know it could just be muscle gain, or water retention from TOM's imminent arrival, but it still has me growling! Just frustrating when you're on track and you're working out 5 days a week.

Oh well! I'm not going to let this throw me over. I had two weeks of nice numbers so next week will be even better.

I weighed in Friday morning because I knew I'd be going out last night and I wanted to be able to sleep in today, as much as I love my 9:00 a.m. Saturday W.I's. I may or may not have had 3-4 smirnoff ice's. I may or may not have indulged in finger foods at the bar such as calamari, cheese and bread, and pickles. I may or may not have had a big mac combo at 3 a.m. either or too.

I may or may not be rather upset with myself for allowing myself to eat such junk. I have absolutely no restraint while under the influence (when it comes to food choices).

I am definitely going to eat well today. I am certainly going to the gym this afternoon. I am most likely going to just get over what I did and realize that I can indulge every so often. A year ago, I would have had no qualms with any of it! I did eat well during the day on Friday so it's not completely terrible!

Today is a fresh start. Cheers to being on track! - and yes, that's a glass of water I'm holding up!

Good job for you! and don't beat yourself up about it! you are doing well to fess up to your mistakes, and I am a true believer in letting yourself have "fun" once in awhile! Have a good weekend!

You have to let yourself have fun once in a while. Heck, that is what life is all about.

I really like your comment: "Today is a fresh start." That's a great attitude, and very similar to my own approach.

My motto is:
"Maybe I didn't do everything perfectly yesterday. That's no excuse for messing up today. Today is a new day, and I get a new start today."

With my attitude that every day (or hour, or minute) is a new start, I just don't dwell on past mistakes.

Best wishes to you!

This is life hon. I know now that if I am going to have a night like you indicated you may - or may not - have, that if I just throw in a little bit harder exercise or an extra hour on the treadmill, I can balance out the damage. We are OK, we are human, we are meant to enjoy life!

Drinking does lower your inhibitions! I remember when I was younger I would do the same thing! Drink a couple drinks...what the heck, eat some food!! :) LOL It's a tiny, tiny gain in the big scheme of things, you'll take it right back of and then some this week.

I love the title of your blog. My neighbor said that to me the other day. I have lost 28 lbs so far and I always get that.
