So here I am. Sunday night. Drafting my Week 5 KMBFBAG post. Hoping that a good night's sleep will absorb a few pounds when I step on the scale tomorrow morning. I'm not holding my breath. Mostly because the air that I would retain could make me gassy and bloated and royally screw up the weigh in! But also because I fell victim to food and its healing ways after my long week.
I gotta admit, like my posts expressed, last week was BLAH! The husband was off of work for 4 days. Each kid had a fever and the phlegmy cough at some point this week. I was sent to the Principal's office. AND with all of the stress and laziness oozing from my pores- spring crept in!
Admittedly, I'm sick of winter, but I was not prepared for going from our 20 degree highs to consistent 70 degree weather! You have got to ease that kind of shit on me. I'm not a machine! I'm still in over sized sweatshirt mode. Loafing around on the couch under my blanket and watching TV mode.
This weather brings a whole lot of expectation with it. Go to the park, start warming up the BBQ pit, taking walks, working in the yard- damn over-achieving season! If I hear one more person say, "get outside and enjoy the weather", I have some extra ice melt that I will rub into their eyes- and that shit burns like hell!
Finally today, I think I made my peace with spring. I looked at the calendar- 6 weeks until Easter. The next week, my daughter's First Communion, the week after that, my son's Confirmation. What is the one thing these have in common? Besides the fact that they all have religious connotation and I'm already going to hell for breaking my lenten sacrifice when I, inadvertently, ate a roll with my salad the other night... If I don't get my ass moving, my bloated, roly poly body will be preserved- IN PICTURES- for me to despise, avoid, and find ways to crop myself out.
I've decided to embrace the mild temperatures and get active so I won't look back on this year's Easter photos like I do every year... wondering why the hell I'm shoving ham and chocolate cream pie in my mouth and in what universe did I think the outfit that I chose was flattering?? I hate me in pictures. But even more, I hate heavy me in pictures!
So, my short term- 6 week goal- is to be camera ready by April 12! It's not like I'm trying to fit into a swimsuit or run a triathlon, I just want to not resemble a 6 month pregnant woman in pictures! And now that Target is carrying a less expensive line of Spanx, I also have a backup plan!
Last week- 142
This week- 141.5- I think? I know- I need a new scale, but I really don't care about the number- it's the way the clothes fit that count!
total weight loss- 8.5lbs
Not bad for 1 very lame attempt at working out and not great on the eating for the week.
How did you do? If you joined in the first week and fell off- jump back in. Some people are having great results- it's never too late...
