It was a so so week. After my 7lb loss the past 3 weeks I was feeling very motivated! I ate pretty well this whole week but I only went to the gym 3 days. Oops. Wednesday I did Zumba and had an awesome sweat sesh. Thursday I went to the gym and ran a bit. My back was really hurting from doing 2 high impact activities 2 days in a row so I knew I had to back off a bit. That isn't ideal but I just had back surgery and I know I need to ease back into things. I really need to listen to my body so I am trying to take it easy when I feel like I am pushing too hard. I did end up going to the gym Sunday but I decided not to run. Instead I walked on the treadmill with an incline. What a workout!!! Walking at 3.5mph with a 1.5 incline was such a good workout! You wouldn't think a 1.5 incline does anything, but seriously...that small incline made a HUGE difference. My heart rate was high and stayed there almost the whole time. I'm a fan. On days I feel like I should skip running, I am DEF going to be walking fast with an incline. Loved that sweaty mess of a workout!

So those were my workouts for the week! Eating wise I did pretty well although I did have a few fat girl moments this weekend. On Friday I had pizza and then my friend had a cookie exchange party. The party was so fun! A lot of awesome people getting together, drinking wine and exchanging cookies. Of course I ate a little much of the snacks my friend had, but at least I somewhat planned for it (not by eating pizza for lunch lol). But the beginning of the week I ate perfectly because I knew Friday night would be a food challenge. I ended up making like 5 dozen rugelach cookies (jewish pastry type cookies) and when I left the party I had about a million cookies from the exchange. I didn't eat one cookie that night and I planned on leaving all of the cookies I got at my parents house. The next day however...I lost a bit of control.
I was at my parents house the next morning and ate like 5-6 cookies for BREAKFAST. Wtf. I wanted to try the different kinds so I had one of each. I then had a bagel and eggs for the rest of my breakfast. MISTAKE! The rest of the day I felt so guilty and my stomach hurt so bad from eating the cookies. I didn't eat anything the rest of the day. Which I know it's bad not to eat...but my stomach hurt and I wasn't hungry. I'm such an idiot. I am never eating that many cookies again. I guess my body just isn't used to that much sugar and sweets at one time! (That's a great thing)
Last night I had a family dinner so the food wasn't super healthy. I did eat well all day planning for a not so great dinner so hopefully the damage was minimal. I have ww weigh in tonight and by the looks of my weigh in this morning...things don't look awesome. I weighed in with only a 1lb loss for the week and that was first thing this morning. Everyone knows you weigh less in the morning than at night. Sooooo I am not really expecting a loss at ww tonight. Bummer. But that's ok...I just have to keep trying!
