A Challenge and a Victory (May 25, 2012)

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.
