Day 62 - Does a bad weekend negate a good week?

So I've been pretty proud of myself this week, food and exercise wise. I got all my exercise goals in for the week, and I stayed in or below my calorie range for food! All week! So I'd say that's a pretty huge accomplishment.

Now the problem - I went all hog crazy this weekend. Friday in one of my classes we had a back to elementary school days valentines party, complete with pizza, cookies, cupcakes, and chips and dips. And yes, I ate all of that, and not in moderation :( Saturday was my cousins birthday party, and again there was pizza, chips and dip, and cake, and yes I went all crazy again.

Today I decided, however, that it's a new day. So I can't let it drag me down. Because if I did, then what would that do? It wouldn't make me lose weight any faster, or in a bigger amount. So I just have to move on past the bad points, and focus on the good. And that's exactly what I'm going to do. My new motto is to look at life sunnyside up. So I would like to say that 5 good days totally kick 2 bad days rear. And that's what I'm gonna keep thinking all day today (:

I hope you all start looking at life sunnyside up like me!

Day 58 - Pigs? In the sky?

Pigs must be falling from the sky because....


And it was a total God thing too. I was browsing for coupons on Sunday before I went to the grocery store, and I found a coupon for $5.00 off a Conair scale! So I was like YAYY! And then I went to Target, where the scales were 10% off, and I got my digital scale for $17. AAAAAMAZZZINGGGGG (:

Now, here's where the sad news comes in. I got on the scale yesterday morning, and the numbers were there. And they were numbers that were oh so familiar. The number on the scale was 200.0 lbs. 200 lbs even. I'm back to where I started. But the crazy thing is, I wasn't disappointed: I was relieved! I didn't gain! Well, I did from my 198. But that inspired me to work so much harder this week. And well I already started working hard on Sunday, but I mean my food and exercise have been so good this week! And I'm just overwhelmingly happy about it! God has so much in store for me and my body, and I can't wait to see it :)
