WLW - wk 5

As you may have seen, I had a fun weekend away with a few of my girlfriends. I'm sure you can imagine how faithful I was to my healthy eating while we were away. I was away from my safety zone where I have my kitchen and (usually) healthy food to prepare. We ate out the whole time we were gone... I kind of felt like at any given meal I would either make a fairly healthy choice but overeat, or I would choose something not healthy and have decent portion control. It wasn't all bad, I did keep from unhealthy snacking by bringing some things from home. But dining out killed me.
So... what I am trying to focus on this week is keeping on keeping on. I'm not going to let a slip up or set back ruin me. I am not going to drop out of this race I am running just because I made a few bad choices. I am doing what I can to refocus and regain the healthy patterns that I have been working so hard to implement. When a runner stumbles, do they quit? No, they get back up and they finish the race.

This weeks weigh-in: 0lb lost since last week - 6lbs total. Not great - but considering the change in routine with being out of town and all, I guess its better than gaining.

I've definitely been there! And you're right. It's not the time to give up. It's the time to refocus and keep working at it. You can do this! And you will be much healthier, both physically and spiritually, for the journey. I can't wait to hear how next week is going to be better! Thanks for joining WLWed!
