Uh oh!

Yep! It's a bit of an "uh oh" day! Wait, Wait! I'm going to take Laurie's advice and "Fake it till you make it". It's a BEAUTIFUL day!!! Nothing could go wrong! I do want to fake it but I want all the ickys to go away while I'm faking it. What are the chance of that happening?

Back to business! Today was weigh in day! woo hoo! Well, I was up! Yes Sir! I was up a whole pound. Can you imagine?? Yeah, I was a little disappointed, but not at all surprised. In fact, I almost skipped my Wii session this morning because I knew it might be ugly. Don't get me wrong, it's only a pound. That can come off by next week anyway. But I was disappointed because I know EXACTLY what I did wrong: haven't been to the gym in a week, been under tons of stress at work, allowed myself to eat out of frustration/boredom, and ate way too much sugar! So, no question about it - the scale was exactly where it should've been!

On a better note, I'm back on track! Yesterday was a better day (than the weekend) and today has been even better. I'm scheduled for a session with Micah the personal trainer tonight, so there's no doubt I'll be kicked into shape (or at least a better attitude) by about 7:30 tonight!

I have decided that I am going to add more protein/shakes to my life. I've heard a lot of talk about how people stall in their weight loss or slow down dramatically and then kick up the protein and BAM, things start falling off. Well, I'm going to test that theory! I'm going to start tonight with a yummy chocolate/banana/PB2 shake after the work out! I'll keep you posted on my progress!

I have successfully ordered the book "Joining the Thin Club" and now, I just have to wait for it to arrive. Ok bloggy friends, have you read it? Do you like it so far??

I'm super excited about getting the book and reading it. I'm starting to enjoy reading again. The only frustration I have now is the lack of time. Can't people pay me to sit around and read instead of be at work all day long?? :-)

It's been a busy last week, busy weekend, and even busier week ahead. I need to take more time to write/blog and really get my feelings out there. Watch out! Things could get ugly! :-)

I hope you are all doing remarkably well. I look forward to catching up on blogs and chiming in on your successes!!!!

I hope that the mantra works for you as it does for me (usually!). I ordered the book too, and just waiting for it to come in.. I'll be reading that while reading Harry Potter! LOL
Glad you're back on track. Knowing how and why you gained the pound is good, and will be a great reminder this week to stay on track! :)
I would love to sit around and read blogs all day and get paid for it! LOL
Hugs! Hope you're having a great day! :)

I hope that you feel better tonight. I'm sure Micah will whip you back into shape. :-) Hang in there!

Stress does funny things to us all... it happens to me all time time!

We all have weeks like that, where we know we are not doing the things we are supposed to be doing. That's when I go to my kickboxing class, aka Jack's McFarland's class, and let him kill me for an hour. Nothing like being drenched in sweat to remind me of what I'm supposed to be doing!
I am in the process of reading the thin club book and I really like it thus far!

I will be curious to see how you and Laurie like the book. Since it's geared for people who have already lost their weight, I am keeping it to read afterwards....Feel better, you are such a wonderful person and you don't deserve anything but to be happy and healthy!!
