As expected, I'm up
I expected to be up a couple of pounds after my week away, and I am. Weird thing though, when I weighed myself on Sunday, I was only up a pound. Could I really have added a pound since Sunday morning? I suppose it could be the weirdness of water weight. Anyway, I did indulge while away. My biggest indulgence was alcohol. If I drink more than 1 glass of anything a week, that's unusual for me. Last week, I was drinking every night. I did limit myself one night - because the line for the bathroom was so long! I did get some exercise in. Instead of cabbing it from the airport to the hotel, I took the L, then walked. I got more exercise going in than I planned, as I turned the wrong way twice and walked probably 24 extra blocks in the hot Chicago sun. I also hit the gym one day and walked a good mile one night with colleagues to see someone back to their hotel safely. I had larger meals than normal, but did not eat in-between meals, which helped keep the gain to a minimum. So, after all that, I do not regret what led to my gain this week. I know I will get it back off, I'm back on the wagon.
