Slim Down Saturday!

I am linking up for my weekly accountability post with Gina from Teaching With a Touch of Pixie Dust.

Here are my stats for the week.

It has been a tough week for me.  I know the above results speak otherwise.  I am thrilled to have lost another 2 lbs this week.  Finally I feel like I am back on track with my my weight loss.  But. It. Was. Hard. This. Week. 
My college son came home Monday for just one night, since he had an appointment with the orthodontist.  So he wanted to eat at his favorite restaurant.  It is a local Mexican place in our town.  I was sooo good all day knowing I would be going out that evening.  I already had it planned in my mind I would order the grilled chicken salad, no cheese and no dressing.  I would just put some fresh salsa on top.  However, I didn’t figure on how hard it would be to resist those chips they bring before the dinner.  Not to mention that it would take longer than usual to get our dinner, I guess since we had a group of 12. Well I only ate ½ my salad, probably in part because I think I ate my weight in chips while we were waiting.  Oh My! Well, live and learn.  Maybe it was a good thing to have a little cheat.  I guess my body said, “Oh, I guess we are not starving”.
The rest of the week I was really proud of myself for staying on track with my food. I will say it is getting easier.  This may sound odd, but the healthy food is actually tasting even better, if that is possible.

My exercise, however, is another story.  Once again I had an epic fail in this department.  I did not walk, I did not join a class, nada, nothing.  By Wednesday, I was not feeling too well and it has only gotten worse.  I keep telling myself it is just a bad allergy episode.  However, that little voice in the back of my head is getting louder with “It is a cold”.  I don’t want to believe it.  But I look awful, feel awful and just the mere thought of any exercise puts me into a cold sweat.
So my goals for this coming week are the same as the last.  Exercise 3-4 days of the week and join 1-2 classes for support.

Finally, here is my inspirational quote for the week

I thought this was perfect for this past week and going forward!

How was your week?  Be sure to head back to Gina’s and see how everyone else did this week.  Decide to be the best you can be this week friends!   


  1. I didn't make it to the gym last week either! I am just SO tired lately! I hope you get some steam this week to get there and join a class! And that you feel better! Have a great week!

  2. I Pinned those wise words! You are not to exercise until you are over the cold. So give yourself a little break from feeling guilty. There is always the next week. It's not like exercise won't be good for you then, too. Hang in! Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom
