Hot For The Holidays - Week 4

Hot for the Holidays

Let me start by saying that, at this rate, I should be hot for the holidays ... in 2012!!!!

I didn't weigh in last week 'cause I was on the Breast Cancer 3Day. Now, let me tell you that I did not walk, I was on the crew. The "Check In" crew to be exact. On that crew it is our job to pep the walkers up in the am and motivate them and welcome them "home" in the PM. Our particular crew chooses to do this with music. And dancing. Lots and lots of dancing. So, given the fact that I danced my fanny off from around 7am to 8:30ish am and then again from around noon til 6:30ish pm - NON STOP!!! - and filled the rest of my day with walks to the store, cleaning of the camp, drinking lots and lots of water, avoidance of the Peppridge Farm tent and snack table and drinking more water, I had high hopes of coming home to a friendly scale. Imagine my horror when that dad burned thing told me I had GAINED FIVE POUNDS!!!!!!

What the hey?!

But did I give up and run for the cookie jar? NO ... 'cause it was empty.

I did however, run for the ice cream ... a very small bowl of sugar free homemade ice cream that was the end of the container, thereby ridding the house of the temptation.

Then, by golly, I pulled up my big girl panties and got down to business. And I am happy to say that as of this morning I am only two pounds up from where I was before the weekend. Still, sadly, two pound up, but three down from Mon. Doesn't that count for something?!?!?!?

Please tell me it does, cause in searching for dinner the other day I ran across a FULL container of sugar free Edy's Fudge Tracks Ice Cream. So, please, I need the encouragement to leave it where it lies in the back of the freezer.

Have a great weekend. And, I promise, 3Day details this weekend.

5 of ya left some love:

I totally hear you! I biked my fanny off (we're talking 67 miles!) over the weekend, and to my horror was up two pounds a few days later. I managed to make it back down and lost 1/2 pound in the end.

Maybe we are both gaining muscle. It's heavier than fat, right?

ME TOO ME TOO!! that's my story exactly for this week. so let's pinky swear (holding pinky out) that we shall not fall victim to that wallowing feeling and throw caution to the wind in the form of icecream, wings, beer, etc, etc.

i won't if you won't!

here's to a loss next week! go us!

Losing 3 of those 5lbs is HUGE! I think that is a great accomplishment. & I bet by next week you will lose those last 2 lbs. I am trying to stay away from the sweets too. I was quite down last week after my gain & ate a bag of cookies. But by Monday I was back on track!! I know we can do this.

That is too weird. Must have gained muscle. I'll bet your down an extra two next week. Great job resisting temptation.

This is too crazy. Dieting makes me want to weep and weep.
