Real Chicks Getting Fit Challenge - Week 9

Last week was NOT a good week. I did do some dancing with the Wii - Just Dance 3 is my latest favorite, but it was an overly indulgent week!

It was restaurant week in the Twin Cities, and while I did make smart decisions, we did go out to lunch once, I did have fish, and dinner twice where I had salmon and mahi mahi. BUT we also had wine! I also tried to resist the bread basket, but that was tough! This past weekend was the MN Food and Wine show which is one of my favorite weekends of the year. We worked the show Saturday (but still got to partake in some food and wine) and attended Sunday. It was a ton of fun, and while we did get some steps in, not nearly as many as I would have liked. I was hoping to have hit 10,000 both days, but only came close on Saturday with 8765. I think I just need time (and nice weather) to get out and walk.

So all in all, I gained 2 last week. Not happy about it, but I know the only person that can turn it around this week is me. Yesterday was spent recovering from the weekend. But I did make dinner for the boy and I, and I made something that we can take for leftovers during the week for lunch. But today for me is kind of a detox day, just yogurt, fruit and granola. I need to get things back on track, I can just feel how after an indulgent weekend like that, my body just feels drained.

Hoping to fit in some more dancing and walking this week. We don't have a ton of plans this week or this weekend, so I am looking forward to focusing more on me. Next week, more of the same!

Hope you are all doing well, I am hoping to get around and stopping by and commenting Wednesday and Thursday!

It sounds like you had a fun week.
Even if it was not all that good for you. :( I hope this week turns things around.

It is so unfair how easily weight goes on, but how slowly it comes off!
