Week 7 Food Log 4/10-I blame it on my cold

What a week it was. I got a cold a few days in and just let things go after that. What a food party I’ve been having: cheese, pizza, ice cream, potato chips and dip…WOW!

Things were actually worse than the previous week. Well, I say, so what! I felt crappy and ate crappy too. Not necessarily the way to go, but that’s what happens sometimes.

I am NOT perfect, and I DO know that I won’t let this poor eating spree last forever.

I don’t really blame it on my cold…it’s still my choice to put unhealthy food in my mouth. But…when we’re not feeling well, it’s harder to fight for what we really want.

No exercise happened this week, but there were 6 days without alcohol. 🙂

Let’s look at how my TOTAL weight loss has been going.

May 21 to May 28 -6.2 lbs

May 21 to June 4 -6.4 lbs

May 21 to June 11 –2.8 lbs

May 21 to June 18 -3.4 lbs

Even though this week was a bad one for the quality and amount of food I ate, my weight didn’t go up. It’s probably because I had alcohol on only one day. Booze is packed with empty calories.

As I write this post, I am actually three days into the next week. I’m still sick and not eating very well. Stay tuned for how the week turned out.
