Ug. I don’t want to talk about it.
Confession time. I almost didn’t blog an update this week, but that sets a bad precedent of avoiding my online accountability with myself so here it is. I overshot my calorie budget for the week by 4,314 calories. And that’s taking into consideration that some of the days I was under budget! Argh. It was the first of three student retreats/trips that happen over the course of five weeks and while I totally stayed on track for breakfast and lunch each day, I blew the diet each night with dinner and late night snacking. Not cool. I can’t do that on the other two trips.
According to Lose It!, I dropped 0.36% of my starting weight, but even that’s not accurate since it logs Monday to Sunday, and I was away from my scale until Monday morning. So unless I seriously bust my butt this week, I had a five pound jump in weight. Granted, some of that is water weight retained from all the junk food I ate – deep down I know it’s physically impossible for me to put five pounds worth of fat on in just three days, but it’s frustrating nonetheless.
Time to refocus. The clock is ticking.
