You can't win them all! Every week since I've started my weight loss journey I have lost weight until now. This morning I got on the scale and it read 293 which means I gained 1 pound since last week. When I seen the number it kinda knocked the wind out of me. Part of me realizes there will be weeks like this and the other part says this entire week was a waste of time. Not sure which voice is right yet but I know quitting is not an option. Looking back one last time at this week there really weren't a lot of things I would do differently. Through out the week I ate right and exercised just like I was supposed to with one exception.
One Blemish on the Week. Yesterday my wife and I were invited for dinner at our friends house. We haven't seen them in a couple months so we were looking forward to it. The only problem was the dinner they prepared for us. It was delicious it just wasn't a healthy option I would normally eat for dinner. We had lamb and a risotto and I made sure I had a small portion of each. For dessert was some type of rum cake. I had a slice about the size of a playing card. When we were done eating I didn't feel stuffed so I think a meal like that every once in a while is acceptable.
Going Forward Next Week. I'm going to change nothing. The week before this I was able to lose 4 pounds following the same guidelines so why would I change? I'm going to eat healthy and hit the gym 5-6 times. Lets see how it unfolds this week.
PS- After my first week of weight lifting my muscles are fried. Hopefully taking a day off today I'll be ready to hit the gym again tomorrow.
