Blah Weighin #2 – The Shrinking Jeans of Lisa


January 13, 2010 By lisa

Let’s cut to the chase…..

Last week:  169.5 lbs

This week:  171.5 lbs

Gain of 2.0 lbs

I weighed myself 80 bajillion times because I just could not believe what the scale was saying.  Yesterday when I weighed myself, I was only 170 lbs (yes, I weigh myself every day, can’t help it, it’s an obsession).  Anyhoo, I exercised hard Sun, Mon, Tues and I thought I did pretty good with the eating ignore the weekend cupcake binge.   I must be unconsciously eating more than I think I am.

I have been in a “blah” mood, kind of in a funk and feeling overwhelmed and stressing out over how to simplify my life and failing miserably, ignoring emails as much as I can, not wanting to talk on the phone to anyone.  So many kids and chores and errands and blog posts and life stuff and people that need and want my attention.  Even my husband is clamoring for my attention.   When I get stressed out, I tend to procrastinate on all of it, until whatever IT is bubbles up and smacks me in the face to be done.

I HATE being behind the eight ball and yet, I am so behind that I procrastinate some more.

What does this have to do with gaining weight?  I don’t freakin’ know.  All I know is that this whole “losing weight” thing feels like ONE more thing added to my already full plate, one more thing that I am “behind” on, that is clamoring for my attention.

Woe is me.

Quite the pity par-tay here, huh?  Aunt Flo must be coming soon ‘cuz I’m usually not so down on myself.

All I can do is plan for a better week, next week.  Plan my work, work my plan.

  • Exercise 5 times a week (3 cardio/running, 2 strength)- check
  • Drink 100 oz of water – check
  • Eat 5 servings of fruits and veggies – need to work harder and better at this one
  • I’m going to add one more…..journal what I eat.
