Week 6 Food Log 5/10 :(

Week 6 Summary 5/10

Low rating this past week due to my consumption of foods I rarely eat (fish and fish/seafood in sushi). Also, on two occasions, I had a Dairy Queen blizzard! I went a bit crazy on four days this week.

I had 3 alcohol-free days..so that could have been worse.

I did not exercise once…not good.

Total weight loss:

May 21 to May 28 -6.2 lbs

May 21 to June 4 -6.4 lbs

May 21 to June 11 –2.8 lbs

Yikes! That means I gained 3.6 lbs over the last week. But you know what? It’s not the end of the world, and I’m not going to value myself based on a number on the scale.

I didn’t beat myself up after veering off course, like I normally do. And you know what? It feels awesome!

Ok…well, there might have been some light punches, but honestly, I enjoyed the indulgences and decided to move on. I feel proud of myself.

So, here’s what I ate. It’s obvious to see where I indulged too much.

Now, that the week is over, I wonder if I might be a bit off track for more than a few days. I’m craving foods I normally don’t crave (ice cream, for example). It’s because I’ve been eating that stuff, so now my body wants more.

I have a busy time at work this week and next, finishing up teaching for the year, so we’ll see how long I allow myself to stay off track.

Wishing you health and success on your journey,
