...I did not struggle with weight growing up, but after getting married and having five kids, I had moved solidly into the "overweight" population. In 2006 I was able to lose the extra pounds (50 of them) and get to goal. But staying there, that is another story. Slow but steady, the weight has crept back on over the years. So here we go again ...

Well ... I'm at exactly the same number I was for last Friday's weigh-in. 152.7. I'm actually ok with that. At the conclusion of last week's post, I listed the challenges I'd had that week, and that I would have no excuses this coming week. While I didn't have any of those particular challenges ...
It WAS my birthday (Sunday).
The weekend was a challenge.
We went out to dinner with my parents on Friday night. Texas Roadhouse. I DID limit myself to ONE roll. Saturday we went to a dinner theater and had pizza (cheesy bread basically, as we subbed alfredo for tomato sauce, and just cheese as a topping) and rootbeer. Sunday was my hubby's bbq (which actually even beats Texas Roadhouse! So yummy). Lots of eating, not much exercise.
I was up FIVE pounds by Monday morning. So I'm pretty pleased to at least be BACK to where I was. I had a great day Monday, not so good on Tuesday, then kicked back into gear for Wed/Thurs. As always, you can follow all the details of the days if you want (Day to Day Doings).
Numbers ... not surprisingly, my weight average was up (154.8, same as two weeks ago). My average intake was 2414 (oops! only three "under 2000" days and my over days were o-ver) and TDEE average was 2943 (almost to my 3000 goal, I did have two 30K step days). Total weekly deficit was 2148, so I didn't hit my goal of 3500 (500 daily deficit).
And HUBBY has a birthday this coming week ....
Check in next week to see if I deal with it any better than I did my own!
...and I have to admit, I've seen the backthatazzup Friday linkup on several fellow bloggers Friday posts. I hadn't totally investigated what it was all about. It's about sharing a favorite song. Music is SO important, for life in general, and as a motivator for moving! An upbeat song can do wonders. As I was taking the boys to school today, "Chasing the Sun" by Sara Bareilles came on. It totally lifted my spirits on this grey and dreary day. So I thought I'd try participate in this link up for the first time!
Just press play
I need a little sun today. It's one of my Top 10.
