Burst into Summer Check-in #3

Burst Into Summer Challenge

This is going to be a quickie as I really don’t have much to say. I’m +0.2 this week which after a holiday weekend that included too much ice cream I can’t really complain. I really need to get on the stick about drinking more water. My symptoms have made it difficult to have many solid meals so water is going to be really important as in my choices of soft foods (like Slim-Fast versus a milkshake!).

Here is the weekly stats:

Starting Weight: 135

Current Weight: 136

Change: +1

Burst into Summer Check-in #2

Burst Into Summer Challenge

So I’m not too happy to post this check-in. Honestly, I feel in some ways I’ve dropped into an emotional pit the last 4 or 5 days. I’m still waiting on test results so the waiting has my anxious. Illness has also made for some not too great communication on the home front so that has added to it. And the scale this morning proved the effects of emotional eating. Sigh.

I had a gain of 1.6lbs. So I’m back up to 135.8. I am not a happy camper. But the good thing I can take from this morning is a swift kick in the rear and motivated to make sure it doesn’t happen again. I’ve got my water bottle full and apples in the fridge to snack on (instead of chocolate and peanut butter deliciousness that seems to call my name when I’m stressed). Seriously, I need you all to find me on twitter in the afternoons and ask me what I’m drinking! If I know someone is going to be asking, I know I will stick with it!

This week’s mini-challenge is to eat  your fruits and veggies. Fruits I typically don’t have a problem with but veggies are an issue so I will have to work really hard this week to make this a habit!


Here is the weekly damage stats:

Starting Weight: 135

Current Weight: 135.8
