+1 (pound)

Too bad I'm not talking about my guest to the wedding I went to this weekend.  Instead, I'm talking about the lovely scale.  I gained a pound.  This is probably the first time that I'm not upset about the gain.  I had an insane week - I spent three days on the road, eating out everyday, all day.  I had planned for it in this post.  Here's how things worked out:

Between Friday - Sunday I worked out once.  Luckily there was a gym at the hotel I stayed at.  I jogged/walked for 30 minutes on Friday after arriving at the hotel.
Friday Goals:
I made a goal to skip the dinner roll at the wedding reception.  I did just that!  Later my husband told me it was a marginal roll that was so hard he could hardly rip it apart.  I ate about half of the dinner.  The slice of wedding cake was tiny, I ate only about 2/3s of it - which was not very much.
Saturday Goals:
Breakfast in the hotel was cereal and fat free milk, as planned.  I also had a banana.  For lunch my hubby and I went to California Pizza Kitchen.  I skipped my regular pizza order for a salad, but my husband let me have one single slice.  I had some sunflower seeds while driving - probably not the best idea, but hey, it was better than the Frito's calling my name during the drive.  I made the worst choice of all at dinner - quesadilla at an authentic Mexican restaurant, along with chips to start.  However, I did not eat all of the chips - I stopped way before my entree arrived.  Plus, the eating ended when I was full!
Sunday Goals:
For breakfast I had 2 mini fruit parfaits at McDonalds - and I skipped on the hash brown that my husband apparently ordered for me.  At lunch my husband and I were in line at a place with fried chicken and philli cheese steak.  I pulled myself together to leave the line - and went to another shop with fresh sandwiches.  I had a veggie sandwich on homemade bread, it was delicious (and expensive - lame Universal Studios prices).  On the ride home I bought a pack of mnm's - I was craving them all week.  I bought just a small pack instead of the usual medium size pack I buy on road trips.  I didn't have dinner on Sunday.

As far as my Summer Focus goals - I failed every single one. This week will be much better - here's where I'm tracking those goals.

These are my goals for the upcoming week:
1 - Lose some weight - to lose my goal of 16 pounds I need to get back on track by losing 2 pounds this week.
2 - Working out 4 times a week is not that hard - I just need to do it.  I always push it back to the last four days of the week - but this week I'm going to get them done in the first four days.
3 - Keep 100% calories
4 - Weigh myself only on Monday
5 - Run at least 1.5 miles
6 - Remember to live life, for each post I will mention the moment I remembered to live life that day

Living Life Moment
Today I played battleship with my husband!  It was a blast - we were both fighting to be the Americans in a war scenario.  In fact at one point we both started signing USA Pride songs - pretty ridiculous.  I adore him.  And by the way, we tied!



OMG I gave in to M&Ms too this weekend! I ate so much crap I couldn't list it. Wouldn't list it! Yep, I regret it, but I am moving on. Let's make this a good week:)


maintaining weight while on the road is SO hard!! So one pound, in my book, is an excellent deal. I think you are right not to be upset about it - and chances are, it's water retention anyway as restaurant food is so salty. Good job!

Anna - I think I love you, I'm soo hoping you're right about the salty food.

Karen - I believe in us... this week will be a good one!


Haha how funny- I love playing silly games like that with my husband- we currently play Lego Harry Potter- it's fun cuz it's not too hard for me AND he can enjoy it with me :)

I agree it's probably mostly salt cuz IMO you didn't do bad at all! I'd probably have eaten double what you did! Love your blog btw :)


Geesh. Good for you. My goal for today, simple, drink more water stay away from those cookies!

beerab - I'll have to find that Lego Harry Potter game!! And thanks for the support... I'm really really hoping it was just salt!!!

Modern Mom - simple goals turn into big results!! My goal today - don't buy chocolate during my grocery shopping!

This really is a awesome post, I’m happy I recently found.



To make your body better than it has ever been, you have to train like you've never had. What helped me to go beyond my limits and make my workouts most intensive was one specific nutritional supplement. At first I did not expect any substantial results, but nevertheless gave it a try. It was Navy Seal Formula by Military Grade. This product naturally brings me up. Now I spend twice as much time in the gym as I used to and still feel great! Besides, I always feel toned and energized.
