Things I enjoy about weekly weigh-in's on weeks that I've "blown it":
1. They help you 'fess up and put the bad week behind you and help you get started afresh
2. Usually, it's not as bad as you think. I always really dread them those weeks and it ends up not being a 156926159 (i.e. 3+) pound gain, but more like a 1.something or a .something. This helps my optimism for the coming week ("I can SO lose .x and make up for this!")
3. They help you appreciate the weeks you do lose
That said, this week definitely embodied all of these points. Here are the stats that I'd been dreading, they are nowhere near as bad as I thought they would be. Like I said to Megan in the car, I feel like I always over-freakout the night/day/hour before weigh-in.
Weekly weigh-in: 167.6
Total loss: 26.0
I'm glad to put this week (and the funk I've been in) behind me. I think not running + the stress for the GRE + poor eating choices = a subtle bad mood that's stuck with me all week. Poor Jon has had to deal with this (He's awesome).
Anyways, it feels good to be back in control and while I'm not running tonight since I have a midterm tomorrow (I'll start studying in a minute... priorities!), I did get back in control with my food. Tonight, I went out for my weekly "date" with my former roommate Emily and our friend Jesse, and we got Coldstone. This is typically a "Danger, Will Robinson!"-esque place, but tonight I was smart and got the 'Like it!' size of the Sinless Sans Fat Sweet Cream with brownie and raspberries for a total of 5.5 points, keeping me soundly within my daily points for today! It feels good to be back, folks! Now, off to study about the various circles of Hell (Yay, Dante!)>
