Well, I survived another holiday weekend...barely. I ate WAY too much food and surprised myself by drinking a lot of soda...and not even diet soda. Bleh. BUT, I had a ton of fun visiting and playing cards with my family. Laughing, joking, sharing old memories, and making new ones. It was a complete joy coloring and hunting eggs with the munchkins. This long holiday weekend is now past me, with great memories and I'm back on plan starting yesterday!
So, my official weigh-in day is Friday. As you know, Friday before last I had an amazing whoosh. This past week...not so much. However, I did have a huge NSV so I'll talk about that first. I worked out 7 days last week! Once Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Twice Thursday and Friday! I even tried a new class Friday morning called H20 Fusion...it was a great water aerobics class that was fun and a nice change from the usual routine. I'm proud to have gotten those 7 workouts in. I planned ahead knowing that I would be out of town - and not working out. Yay me!
And now...back to the weight. When I weighed in last Friday, there was no change. Usually, this would have been a huge disappointment but not this time. It didn't bother me this time for several reasons.
1. I made it to the gym so often - one of my initial goals when starting this journey a month ago. How could I be disappointed when I know I made my health a priority??
2. Aunt Flow was due for her monthly visit, literally ANY second! Usually, I have all kinds of water weight gain just before so not having a gain was super exciting!
I jumped right back on plan Monday morning and plan to stay that way all week. I'm not confident I'll see a loss this coming Friday, since I ate so darn much over the holiday but I can live with that. I had a fabulous time and didn't go completely crazy so it's okay with me that I wasn't perfect. Life is all about balance and being perfect is boring! ;)

Have a great week everyone!
