Well, some weeks don't end up the way we'd want them to. I gained 1.4 this week. I worked out, ate well, and ended up with nine weekly points that I didn't eat- which is rare for me. Usually, I eat all my 49 weeklies plus whatever APs I earn (about 25- 40 per week).
There are some aspects of weight loss that we can't control. Sometimes for no apparent reason, the scale is a jerk; even when I try as hard as possible and it seems like I've done everything possible to have a week where I'll lose.
It's crappy times like this that I remember what a wise woman, Suzi, once told me during a twitter #wwchat: "Don't let an unintentional gain lead to an intentional gain." Basically, don't let this slip up lead to more of a back slide. So, with that phrase on repeat, I'll be continuing to count my points, eat healthy, and train like a beast for my upcoming races.

Since my Akron Marathon team is part of Team Panera, I've decided to try something new from the menu each week. This week, I ate the Chopped Chicken Cobb Salad and it was insanely delicious! I loved the avocado and the dressing on this salad. Also, I love that the way Panera's to-go boxes allow the sides and tops to be removed to create a square bowl! I also like that most of Panera's options are filling but not heavy- I can run after eating there and not feel weighed down.
163.4 pounds as of 7/16/14 weigh-in.
+1.4 from last week.
-27 since January 2013.
-38.6 since heaviest: 202 in 2005.
I'm looking forward to refocusing this week and hopefully seeing a loss next week!
QOTD: How do you come back from a less than stellar week?
