Well I gained +0.8lbs this week. I knew that potentially I was in for a gain even with 21K steps on Friday. I can’t make up for a crappy week with one good day and even that wasn’t a good day, it was just an insane one.
This past week has been spent trying to help my MIL/FIL find a place to live here in Jersey as they are getting ready to move here. They are selling their home in the South and relocating to be closer to J and the girls. At first I thought this was a great idea and I even was the one to suggest it, well it is now going to be them living with us for 6 weeks as their new place will not be available until 8/15. What have I gotten myself into???!!!
Yesterday, I spend the day with my MIL in Philly at the Wills Eye Emergency as she had a tear in her retna that needed to be repaired. They were luckily able to repair it, however we were there for almost 6 hours. I was exhausted and ended up eating a bag of pretzels and skittles to stay awake and make it through. Again, bad choices due to stress I just wanted something that was going to help me get through those hours. My FIL was with me and he at times gets very worried especially about his wife. So I did a lot of sitting with him, trying to reassure him. Now as far as my good deeds go, that was a big one. J was home with the girls and it wasn’t that bad, but as we all know sitting in an ER is never fun.
So I am moving on today, I am going to set up a plan for the week and I am going to do my best to stick to it. I have a planner which I write all the important appointments for my girls in, so I think I am going to write down my exercise plan for the week in there too. The idea that if I write it down then I have to do it, I am stuck with it!! I am looking forward to losing those next 5 lbs and staying on a path that will keep me strong.
