I am going to warn you up front. I am not a happy camper today. I am blah and grumpy and kinda feel like crawling in a hole and crying. I would like for today to be over now. Although the next 2 days at work are going to be super fun, filled with (literally) all day meetings. At least after work for the next 2 days I have fun stuff planned. Hopefully that will get me through the daytime hours.
I want to be honest. I feel like quitting. Not quitting life with the band, not at all. Just quitting this challenge. I feel like I did pretty good during the week but then just absolutely blew it over the weekend. Take a gander at these numbers ...
Today's Weight: 186.4
Seriously? How is that possible? I honestly don't understand. Although, according to my numbers for the week that is exactly what it should be. Let's look at the math.
Starting weight last Monday: 187.4
Total calories burned for the week: 14,279
Total calories consumed for the week: 10,880
Calorie deficit for the week: 3,399 (1 pound = 3,500 calories)
Today's weight: 186.4
Pretty much explains it right? So, why was I 184.8 and 185.2 on other days this week. This is the stuff that I hate. (And also why I hate math in general!) Things never add up the way you think they should. I suppose if I hadn't gotten on the scale every single day last week I wouldn't be upset at this mornings number.
In the 'keeping me honest' vein, here are my numbers from yesterday.
Consumed: 2213 Thank you milkshake and chocolate almonds ... sigh.
Activity: 15 minutes
I know there are a lot of numbers in this post (At least Beth will appreciate that!) and for that I apologize. Numbers seem to rule my life right now. And I am not fond of numbers. Unless of course they say what I want them to say :)
I brought my lunch today, several low calorie/high protein things. So that is good. But mostly I think I need to stop talking about this before I really do start to cry, and seeing as how I'm at work right now, it is probably not the best time to do that, don't ya think?
Hanging on by a thread ... but still hanging.
