I don't know why Monday morning comes at me the same every single week. Week after week stuck on repeat. Tired, cranky and wishing I had another day to just sleep an extra hour or two. Working 7 days a week most of the time is do-able and I am just fine, but come Sunday evening I am wiped and need another day to myself to do nothing. But I guess that's life and I am oh-so thankful to have a full time job and another one on the side! Lord forgive me for my bantering this morning.
Saturday was suppose to be my cheat day where I stuff my face and go to bed feeling miserable day, but when I woke up with a .2 gain I wasn't feeling like I deserved a full on gorge day. Yea, that's right, a .2 gain!! There is no way possible! I was under my calorie count all week, not a single bad thing went into my mouth last week, so I am not stressing over it. I actually attribute it to not eating ENOUGH! Yes, enough...ain't that a concept! This week I plan on upping my calories to 1500 and trying to eat every single one of them! Of course exercise will help me burn that 500 calories a day and that will create my deficit.
Staurday's I have been taking a pilates class with my momma and love it! I really try and get Pilates in twice a week. Its amazing and my body is definitely improving..especially my back side! After pilates we ran by starbucks where I got an eggwhite, turkey bacon whole wheat english muffin sandwhich which by the way is only 320 calories and 13 grams of carbs! UM Amazing!! I finally got a much long needed pedicure with my lil sister, mom and a friend. I think it had been 6 months!
The little sister. There is a 13 year difference between the two of us. She is amazing and I love her like my own child.
The hubs and I had no plans really Saturday night, but ended up spending the evening at a friends house for his birthday. I got to feel like I was 18 again and back in high school. Full on cops showing up, underage drinkers. It made my night. You see we still have friends who are quite immature and at 25 years old they still hang out with 16, 17, 18 year old GIRLS! Yea, your telling me. My bff and I had lots of laughs that evening...kept asking ourselves if we were like that at that age. Answer=yes.
It took us back to reminiscing when we were 18 and all the good ol days! It was much needed definitely! By the end of the night My Fitness Pal pretty much looked like this
That is not including a glass of wine I had and a brownie. And yes my alcohol consumption is greater than my food intake. So what. I cared more about alcohol than food by the time the evening came. Never thought I'd ever say that. I'm not sure if that is anymore healthy. But this girl needed a break!
Sunday morning rolls around and I decided to weight myself and guess what?! I lost 1.1 lbs!! Um YEA! Gonna have to go on a alcohol diet asap! I ended up having my free day Sunday then and I sure ate. As a result that is probably why I feel like crap this morning. Ugh but it tastes just so good in the moment.
Today I am back on track until saturday morning. I feel like I really need to kick my butt this week. I would love to see 149 on saturday. I didn't grocery shop yesterday so that means I am not fully prepared for today. So it will be a McDonalds chicken salad for lunch. (yes-i said McDonalds-don't judge me. It is the best salad at only 420 calories with dressing.) It's all about portion control and what I know works.
I hope you all have a fabulous monday!
