I weighed in this morning and I'm up 3 pounds! YIKES! emoticon

I thought over the past week...

- I DID go over my calories a little (just a little) but probably on most days, so that would certainly add up.

- I managed quite a few fitness minutes last week: 1394 emoticon
(Last week I did my 5K for "SparkPeople's Official 5K Your Way Walking Program" and I also did LOTS of heavy yard work -- I DO count that as fitness minutes. I really do get a work out and work up a sweat -- this 'old lady' works hard! Plus I did some Spark Videos, a little basketball, and some extra walking.)

I thought/hoped all of this activity would have handled those extra calories...

- Also, last night I had an 'encounter' with a bag of cheddar-flavored popcorn. No, I didn't finish the bag (but I did make a good dent) so I'm probably retaining a gallon of water. (I'm trying not to panic! ;)

I was a bit stressed last night -- long story, we won't go there. (Let's just say someone's ex makes me CRAY-CRAY and eating a whole lot of cheddar-flavored popcorn seemed like a good idea at the time.)

Anyway, last week is over. Moving on to this week...

My goals: these 3 pounds WILL be gone by next weigh in!

Also, I reset my Spark Streak Goals since I haven't been tracking them for a loooong time. Starting fresh today!

More soon!

P.S. I didn't delete my whole history -- just reset some of the SparkStreaks.

I'm at 9 weeks (and counting!) for Exercise for at least 120 minutes per week! :-)

    Well, life happens, doesn't it?! And the way we've dealt with it in the past is the reason we are who we are, here, today. So, how do we 'reset' our stress buttons? That is the question, isn't it?!

    One of my daily 'medium range goals' is this: If faced with a mistake, failure or tough situation, think of two lessons to learn from the experience.

    You had an encounter with cheddar-flavored popcorn. Mine was thin sliced bologna at the deli.

    Okay, time to learn our lesson and move on.

    Hang in there, hope it comes off soon! I have noticed that I tend to hang on to pounds when I work out intensely.

    emoticon I was thinking of starting fresh today too, but I'm not prepared to delete how well I've done in the exercise department LOL So... the history stays but I am re-focusing and plan on staying true to myself (until the next bump in the road emoticon )

    Those 3 lbs will be gone by next weigh in... you can do it!!! Good job on the fitness end of it all as well!
