Today was weigh in day and I gained 1.6 pounds bringing down the total to 27.6 pounds loss. This week was a bit tough for me because my in-laws came to visit from out of town. My mother-in-law is an awesome cook and I have to admit that I could not resist her home cooking. I tried not eat as much as I did before but the amount of carbs I ate from white rice to breads didn't help out. My biggest confession is eating a bacon cheeseburger from a fast food restaurant that I have been wanting to try for years. I finally found one close enough when I was out shopping a state away. As soon I ate it I regretted it because it didn't taste as good as the commercial made it look. I did try eating low carb on the rest of the days left of the week to try to balance out my poor choices.
I do have to say that although I did not eat right this week, I did do the most fitness I have done since I started. I went out to a mall in my area and walked until my feet hurt. I then went to a mall outside of my state and walked again for a couple of hours. Another big accomplishment for me was joining a gym. Although the weather is getting warmer and I could walk outside I felt that by joining a gym it would make me go out and exercise because I have to pay for it. I joined on Thursday and went to the gym Friday and Saturday. It felt good to be a gym rat!
