I have been a little nervous to step on the scale....with the holidays, travelling and not getting in high calories work-outs. This morning I stepped on the scale.. FAIL!!! I am up 7 pounds. WHAT DID I DO?
I let myself fluctuate, I like to be 185 or less, at 6'0 tall that puts me right at the top of the "Healthy" BMI range. As long I am 189 or less I feel OK. But this morning a big 192 slapped me in the face.
-Portion Control- I went back for seconds on the tasty Turkey Dinner.
-Fruit Juices- I usually avoid high calorie drinks and stick to water, this week I was not so focused and consumed many calories in my cup.
-Starbucks- With a Coffee addiction it is easy to get a 400 calories cup of jolt and consume it in minutes while at the Mall. Which is what I did. Repeat after me "Tall, Non-Fat, No Whip." UGH!!
-Pie- I had 3 pieces of pie, enough said.
-Snacks- We were in the car a lot and it is easy to snack on crackers, Cheetos, etc. I was eating out of boredom.
***So I know what I did to EARN those pounds..
TO GET BACK DOWN:
I wrote a post ages ago about how I lost weight and have been able to maintain HERE.. I will use the same strategies that helped me before. Lots of running. Fruits and Veggies. Water. No frilly coffee drinks until I am back down. No Desserts. 100 Calorie=1 Mile mentality.
So there you have it, I admit it I splurged, which is OK. But I will not let those 7 pounds become more. I have a plan! Will let you know how it goes.
How did you all do?
Will you be working off your food this week too??
