back in the right direction
The scale is moving my way again. Yay! I expected it. I think last week was an aberration. Truth is, I was down a little more mid-week, but I cheated on Sunday. As you might expect, Mother's Day is not the easiest of days for women like me, who went through so much trying to be a mother, but not ending up there. So, on Sunday, I had what I wanted. A bagel with cream cheese for breakfast. Another one as a snack. I do love bagels! They are not a regular part of my diet, usually a treat, but I hadn't even done that in ages. And I had cupcakes. Those little mini ones. At one point, I was doing pretty good and thought "I don't need any more of those cupcakes" - there were 8 left at that point - but then, well, something set me off and those 8 cupcakes went down. And now? They didn't really make me feel better, in fact I felt a bit guilty eating them, knowing they were doing nothing positive for me. I didn't feel guilty about the bagels at all though! So next time I need a little comfort food, it will be bagels. Anyway, the upcoming week does not look to have any challenges. I wasn't able to exercise last night and won't be able to tonight - but the rest of the week looks good for that. I am trying to get some weight work in for my arms and I'm doing stomach exercises too. I'm even - GULP - giving some thought to maybe buying a bikini again.
