Total lost: 6.8
I was going to do this post earlier this week but my freaking computer won't download my pictures off the card because it says it can't recognize the file(?). I don't get it so instead you get a generic picture of me. Lame! But real life, right?
I gained 1.4 pounds. Oy. I am actually okay about it now. To say I was slightly upset a few days ago would be a humongous understatement. Which is funny because I actually knew going into the weigh in that I probably gained. That is what happens when you don't follow the program. HA! Funny thing how if you do the work, barring any health issues, you will lose weight. It is the whole being disciplined thing that got me. I am a rebel at heart. Which sounds pathetic when I look at it from this point of view. I am rebelling against my own health. That isn't bringing down "the man". It is just getting in the way of my goals and life. I am not sure how to get over that little rebellion. Tell me how!!! Help!
I will say that I don't want to go in there and gain again. Not at all. I feel like I really let myself down. I have the discipline to change. I am just afraid of failing this time like I have so many other times. It hurts to let yourself down. It hurts to know that you are the only one to blame. So why not fail early so it won't hurt so bad? Does that sound ridiculous to anyone else? I deserve better than this body I have created. This is not who I am. I am strong. I am healthy! This body is my past and I am going to start running like hell at the future!
This week is going to be all about tracking. Tracking is basically writing down everything you eat and the points that correlate with those foods. Weeks that I track I rock! And I am ready to rock. I am making a realistic goal of tracking everything for 5 days this week. With at least one of those days to be a weekend day. Weekends are my biggest challenge.
What are your goals this week?

We are having such a nice weekend. It has been great- well except Nick's second bout of pink eye in two weeks. That is no fun and it looks like it is viral so it is a wait it out and see type thing. Yuck! Poor guy. We celebrated National Record Store day yesterday and picked up three new records for our collection. Now to find a record player we love and save for it. It rained a lot yesterday and the SLC marathon was going on. Between those two things we stayed home most of the day. We ordered chinese take out, played with our marble run, watched shows and fixed my sisters car. Well Nick fixed the car actually and I just kept him company. Ha! It has been great. And with Nick's pink eye it looks like we are staying home from church and having a quiet Sunday. I can't complain! After the events of the last week in Boston and Texas I am hugging the kids and Nick tighter. I am enjoying the sweet everyday moments we have together. It is sad that it takes amazing tragedy for me to really look at my life and be glad for the things I have. We don't have a lot of money, our own home or the nicest cars but we have a sweet family and great friends. We have each other. And in the long run that is all that matters. I am going to try and remember these feelings of gratitude long after these events become a part of our Nation's past.
Shall we get past the heavy stuff and get into some fun?! Links!
Do you remember the Can't Touch This Hallmark commercial? Well feast your eyes on its glory!
You know how cats are like the hip thing right now? Well I am not a fan but check out these DIY cat toe shoes! They are making me a believer.
I have no immediate use for this fabric but I want it! OH and this oil cloth too. I am trying to not buy things I don't need. Which is hard! I feel like some things just belong in my life.
Cute messy bun tutorial. This is my hair style everyday bit it isn't nearly this cute!
Since starting WW I have eaten a ton of eggs. They are low in points and high in filling protein. Win win! Which is why I want to make this egg sandwich. Nothing ground breaking but it looks beyond delicious.
I am stalking a lot of home decor websites lately. And I want these fabric wraps! Ugh they are so lovely! I can just imagine wrapping a loaf of bread in one and giving it as a gift for a new neighbor.
Dirty brown rice with shrimp? I say yes, please!
This post is for anyone who is trying to get a business off the ground. Truly inspirational!
I love this idea from A Beautiful Mess about making 4 seasonal goals. A little more realistic than the 28 before 29 type posts. Now to figure out my spring goals!
