I'm here...I'm here!
I did weigh-in yesterday, but wasn't able to blog. It wasn't good, guys. It wasn't good. I was actually up a 1/2 pound! Ugh. Let me tell ya, I was really pretty excited Sunday morning when I weighed myself. I was actually down THREE POUNDS!!!!! Yeah. I know. You're wondering, What happened in one day????? My best guesses?
Hard Rock candy & my sister happened (ha!).
PMS set in (Hey, it happens).
On Sunday after church, my hubby & I went to lunch with some friends. I have one friend who REALLY LOVES Chili's. Haha. As soon as the words came out of her mouth, I was like, "Crap." Don't get me wrong, I love Chili's! Ha! I just knew what could happen. I love chips & salsa. Like, REALLY love chips & salsa. I ate a good bit of them, but I don't feel as if I ate waaaaay too much. Hubs & I got the 2 for $20 deal - but, we actually boxed one meal up as soon as it came out and split the other - Chicken Fajitas. I felt in control. I had exercised pretty hard that morning. I had thoughts of going at it again when I got home.
WRONG! My sister ended up coming over - and I spent what was left of the afternoon straightening up, hiding/wrapping presents - and I didn't get that workout in! My sister brought hard rock candy with her and I found that stuff ridiculously hard to stop eating! I wasn't horribly worried about it, though.
After weighing in yesterday and realizing that I was up....I quickly blamed Chili's. All that sodium. Chili's is so good, but so darn salty! I realized yesterday after wanting to eat sooooo much that it was about that time...haha. I just wasn't thinking about being so close, and all of a sudden it clicked with me. PMS! Ugh! Yeah, seriously, my hands are swollen like crazy and I just feel incredibly fat. My wedding ring that needs resized at this point is tight today. I don't feel like the woman who's losing weight and feeling great, ya know? So, I have been chugging the water today. I'm going to work out so hard this week so I can hopefully get this fluid off of me!!!! What a GREAT week to be battling this, right???? Christmas!?! In all reality, all of the Christmas food doesn't even sound good to me! I was thinking of that this morning. I hope that mindset sticks with me this week!
I hope everyone is ready to celebrate CHRISTmas! I'm ready to get together with my family and celebrate Jesus' birth!! I'm not sure what this week has in store for me - so, if I don't show up again until Monday, I definitely hope that each of you reading has a WONDERFUL, MEANINGFUL, and BLESSED Christmas!
