Weight Watchers Weigh-In Week 32: Have you ever…. done a 60 mile walk and tried to track but by lunch on day one you were so focused on the mental gymnastics needed to keep walking that food became a fuel and whatever you could stomach sort of thing?
Have you ever… had to drink Gatorade for 3 days straight. It is literally forced on you at pit stops every 3 miles – for good hydration reasons?
Have you ever… finished a physical event sore and elated and proceeded to justify all sorts of delicious foods.
Have you ever… had that spiral into a 2 day Eat-anything-you-want Fest?
Have you ever… had a birthday during that time too?
If you have then your weigh in might have gone like mine this week. Boo.
-62.2 lbs on WW to date
oof. I didn’t expect it to be good. I am not a fool after all. I know I ate crap and I know that I am probably still retaining water and salt from the weekend too. I also know that no good choices happen at the chinese buffet and that Birthdays are not an excuse to give up on healthy eating.
I know it and I ignored what I know.
That is what you get.
I am….bummed. I wanted to have a loss to go with my amazing walk this weekend, but I got lazy with it. Perhaps I was lazy with food out of rebellion from the effort that the 3-day took on me. Perhaps I was close to the edge already.
I will say some things in my favor however. Life is not all about the scale after all.
I had an amazing experience at the 3-day and walked roughly 48 miles
The x-ray of my knee shows no concerns. There isn’t enough swelling or pain right now to justify an MRI either. So good news there.
I went to weigh in today and stayed for the WW meeting. (what to expect at your first WW meeting) I tracked again today.
I will leave you with a favorite quotation of mine, and one that I am living right now:
“Courage does not always ROAR, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying: I will try again tomorrow.” – Mary Anne Radmacher
