I weighed in yesterday and I gained 2.6 lbs.
Not a great number but is was an awesome week. Michele and I went to Cleveland for a long weekend to visit her parents and family. On Sunday Michele’s family and a few friends all got together in Sarah’s new barn and had a clam bake. (Sarah is Michele’s niece) I made all the decisions about what I ate, some were great, some were pretty good…and then there were homemade chocolate chip cookies, carrot cake cupcakes and creamy clam chowder. Those weren’t the good decisions.
Sarah told me if I gained weight I couldn’t blame it on Cleveland. And she is right. My health…My choices. I can say I made more good choices then I ever would have made a year ago. I call that progress.
In the last 14 days I have been on the road 8 days, spent 5 nights in hotels and enjoyed a great weekend with Michele’s family. But reality is I ate out more than half my meals. And my choices were about the same…half great and half not so good. My net weight gain during that time, plus 1.0 lbs. I am back home 3 days and I am back on track eating right.
For now, with a sense of accountability, I am smiling. And yes I gained 2.6 lbs.
