What a crazy day – and end to a crazy week. I am extremely tired and my body seemed to be saying, “Enough already, girl!” I worked until 10:30 last night, but got up again and worked out. Just a light workout, but still 30 minutes.
I went to my nephew’s wedding tonight. Thankfully, I held up all right and didn’t have to do too much standing. It was fun to see family and to see my nephew get married.
I did 9 workouts this week. I think to do the 10th tonight would probably be a bit obsessive. I am glad I decided to make the 10 workouts a goal, rather than an absolute requirement to staying on plan. Sometimes things intervene that are beyond your control.
I stopped and got something to eat before the wedding, so I didn’t feel too tempted at the wedding. I didn’t know if they were going to be serving dinner, and if they did, whether it would be anything that would fit into my plan. I thought it was better to be safe than sorry. As it turned out, they catered Italian food, and it looked pretty good. I did not eat it, however. They had a table with fruit, so I ate some fresh fruit. I did not eat any cake and I did not eat any of the candy they had laying around at the reception. They had food like you would buy at a drive-in movie, because of the theme at their reception. Normally, I would be very tempted by that, but I am very focused right now, so was not tempted. I was glad to have the fresh fruit. I had calories left and that is what I would have used them for at home. So, this was my first real challenge in a social setting and I was victorious. Yay me!
My weight appears to be being very stubborn right now, although official weigh-in is tomorrow morning. If I do not lose, I know it is nothing I did wrong. Sometimes your work just does not show on the scale right away. It will eventually. The looser clothing and seeing that I look smaller will have to motivate me this week, if the scale does not.
Well, I am falling asleep while sitting here, so guess I’d better turn in. Thank God it is a 3-day weekend. I need to rest.
