The scale is being a bitch.
I was still feeling pretty Zen about it (or, at least in spite of it) earlier in the week, but no more. Please bear with me while I drag you through the details. Or, if you like, skip to the bottom for this week’s salad. (I’m totally ok with that. Just so you know.)
My “official’ weigh in last Friday was 231 – a 3 pound loss. Which seemed a little bit… optimistic… for a week where I knew I hadn’t been particularly good. So I decided to check back on Monday, just to see. 233. Maybe more in line, but disappointing. But I’d been *so* good since Friday. So I checked again on Tuesday. 233.5.
What. The. Hell.
So basically, in a week of not great eating I lost 3 pounds. And while kicking-ass, I gained. How is that fair?
For the record, even I could see, every morning as I hopped on the scale, that this was Not Right. And although I didn’t actually think to myself on Friday, “screw this, it’s not working, I might as well binge”, I don’t think this was a coincidence:
So, time for a reset. Today we celebrated Boo’s second birthday, and I consider it an achievement that I:
- consumed a FRACTION of the quantity of icing while decorating that I usually would (I don’t know why I do it, it makes me ill)
- moved on to kiwi after only 2 slices of pizza
- ate a little piece of cake, and left behind a bunch of icing
And better still, I’m sending the rest of the cake to work with ζach. I’m tring to figure out how to package it:
And last, but certainly not least, this week’s salad recipe was a guest post on Pathways to Life: Grilled Lentil Salad with Halloumi. It actually went up last Monday, but I kept forgetting to link to it. It was pretty yummy (if I do say so myself).
So tomorrow – back to logging, back to salads, back to life. The cake goes to work with ζach.
So does the scale.
