Not such a great weekend.

Now, it's not very often that I have a "bad" food weekend, but this weekend was one of them, and the scale showed it this morning. I knew it wasn't going to be pretty, I ate bad, and I didn't drink my water. So I'm hoping when TOM finally get here, I've drank a gallon of water, tomorrow will be better.

I honestly don't even know what got into me this weekend, Friday night went off without a hitch, and Saturday went well too, up until about 1030 (past my normal bedtime I suppose!), I got into the triscuits and hummus, and then into the graham sticks and peanut butter, and then into the ice cream. I didn't eat a ton of each, but a little bit of each is alot of calories.

Yesterday went off well, I was eating totally on schedule until I got to my parents house, and my body was ready for it's 330 snack, and dinner was suppose to be at 4, so I was avoiding eating, well then dinner got pushed back, and I got to snacking, and I hit the nuts. Almonds and Pecans to be exact, at least they were the good raw kind, not the roasted, salted or sugar coated ones. Then I got into the trail mix, and finally we sat down for dinner, which was planned to be my cheat meal for the week (Abs Diet allows one meal where you can eat what you want), and I had some meatballs, mashed potatoes and sweet corn. Needless to say, I was overstuffed (which I HATE that feeling) when I left my parents. The rest of the evening was fine. I made Blondies for work today, and I did split one with the roomie, but after that day, is that really an issue?

On a high note, on Friday night I did my first interval training, and it whooped my butt. I was totally tired and sweaty when I was done, so that was a plus. Then Saturday I did my first weight workout, which was by far one of the most intense workouts I have ever done with weights...ever. They have you do circuits, which wow, it's rough. By my second set of lunges, my legs couldn't go past 7 in the reps. They almost gave out. I guess thats a good thing though, it means I'm working out hard enough!

So after my workout on Saturday, My legs were exhausted, so I knew they were going to be sore, but I had no idea just how sore. I seriously haven't been able to move for two days, I've never had my butt hurt....but it does now!

Tonight I have another interval workout, I can imagine that is going to be pretty hard being that I'm having a hard time walking. But this is the point where usually I get out of the habit of going to the gym, just because I will go, I will be sore, and then I will "take a break" until I don't hurt anymore, then I don't end up going back. So, needless to say, I'm going tonight!

Other than that. I've upped the calories I'm taking in to between 1500-1800 a day since I'm working out harder, I don't want to put my body into starvation mode. So I'm back on plan today, and I'm going to be strict for the next two weeks, no cheat meals!

Other than that, nothing terribly exciting going on. It's finally cooling off here in Michigan, I just love the fall. Even more so, I love October, the leaves changing, the cool weather, I just love it, so I can't wait!

I hope everyone is having a good on-plan day, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things!

Sounds like your weekend could have been a lot worse! Although you did stray a little, at least you didn't eat the whole tub of ice cream, which we all know is VERY easy to do!

Good job for staying accountable and moving on!
