I always do sort of an end-of-week review, even if I don't always blog about it, the night before a weigh-in. My only goal for this week is to have lost the 3 uninvited pounds that showed up after my Italian Family Food Festival on New Year's Day. I am sure at least a pound or two of that was water weight, "Just Visting," as Anne would say. But my Core plan experiment didn't work this week, and with all my Weekly Allowance Points blown early on, this week was a tough one for me. I usually dip into those on weekends but this week I just felt myself slipping into the hole.
Luckily, tomorrow's weigh-in, no matter what the result, is a big Reset button. Whatever the outcome of this week, next week is a fresh one and I start over again. I had a pretty good dinner tonight -- scallops and pasta with veggies and half a glass of wine -- and I think I can skip my usual nightly snack of popcorn with the highly addictive Kernel Seasons white cheddar cheese on it. I don't want that much salt the night before weigh-in.
I've been feeling a low-level crumminess for most of this week. I thought it was mostly emotional, post-holiday blahs and all that. Today when I tried to lift weights, though, I broke out in a cold sweat and felt nauseous. So I think I might actually have some kind of mild bug thing. I feel OK but just very tired if I'm not working out. I had planned to do a Spinning class tomorrow but might skip it if I don't feel better. Tomorrow is also my yoga class, which took a hiatus for the holiday, and I'm really happy to be getting back to it. I won't miss that because even when I'm sick, yoga seems to help me feel better.
I'm meeting-hopping again. Tomorrow I'm going to a new meeting in my town that is just getting started. It's at 4:00 p.m. My WW@Work still hasn't started back up. Next week is the open house and the week after that is the first meeting. My old leader sent me a letter saying she's not coming back, so I will go to the open house but if I don't like the looks of the new person, I might stick with Monday night. The only thing is, I hate to let down the other people in my @Work if they wouldn't have enough members without me. I will just have to wait and see how it goes.
