She is why I'm busy

I had great intentions this week! I started off with a bang; two days in a row of serious workout followed by great eating. And then, I don't know what the hell happened. I couldn't get enough chocolate to save my life. I ate and ate until I couldn't eat another bite, and then ate some more!!!  It didn't help that the house was full of Easter candy either.  But it wasn't just the candy, I ate ice cream cones and fast food too.  Last night, Taylor and I each made individual pizzas (more like a size small at a pizza joint) and I polished mine off in 5 minutes (Taylor ate a normal portion and left the rest of hers for Auntie Trish to polish off) So, it was no wonder that when I did my weekly weigh in, I was 2 POUNDS HEAVIER!  A whole two pounds. Aaarrrggghh.

When I lose control like that, I stop writing my food down, so I totally lose track of what I'm eating AND why.  I have to make sure I write it down and maybe jot down how I'm feeling. That might help me in the future to prevent the total loss of control I experienced this week.

Now, I not only have to get on track, but I have to lose two pounds that I already lost once before. How quickly they find me again!

Feeling a bit better now!

Well, my face is looking better.  I actually think the whole process helped, but it took some time to see the results.  No one really warned me that my face was going to stay puffy for so long!  My red marks are less noticeable, but they certainly have NOT disappeared.  I don't think my face is any firmer and I don't think my pores look any smaller, but I guess I shouldn't have expected a miracle.

I lost 2/10 of a pound this week :-(, but I guess that is better than the 8/10 of a gain last week. It probably would have been a little more of a loss, but the night before weigh in, my husband and I went to see Clash of the Titans and I ate a large buttered popcorn. (really, what do you expect, I love me some movie theater popcorn!!)

I am starting another program called "Making the cut" by Jillian Michaels.  The food pretty much follows the same guidelines as the "feed your face" program, but there are also body and mind exercises.  You're supposed to be able to lose those last 10 to 20 pounds of stubborn weight on this program, so wish me luck! I have 15 more pounds that I would like to lose, so if I can do it in 30 days, well, that would be golden.  I started the food and exercise program yesterday and I have to tell you, the exercises KICKED MY ASS!  I thought I was working pretty hard before, but apparently I was being a pansy ass, because my workouts have been nothing like yesterdays.  If I maintain my commitment, I think I actually should lose 10 - 15 pounds in 30 days. I took my measurements too, so I could see those improvements also.
