winning the battle - week 6

I lost 1 pound this week.

It would have been more, but as I am once again learning there are consequences to what I choose to put in my body.  As my Jenny consultant said to me today, "You would have lost three pounds last week, if you had stuck to the diet."  It's true, I would have.  Oh, the consequences of such indiscretions with food.

My friend, A.B. and I rode our bikes to a Nats baseball game Friday, and of course we stopped by the famous Ben's Chili Bowl stand for a half smoke with chili, which is seriously awesome stuff.  Then with my cousins here on Saturday, the clincher was the Afghan dinner we had, which was sooooooo goooooood.  I probably ate four days worth of calories in two days.  Not even logging 15 miles of run/walks and bike rides last week can put a dent in that detour off the diet, but the good news is I still lost a little weight.

So, this week it's time to get serious again.  I have no plans to eat out, lots of plans for my workouts this week, a plan to smuggle my diet food into the baseball game on Thursday and a goal of three pounds lost this week.  I'm looking forward to it.

Little Miss Squirrel is so gonna be regretting that chocolate chip cookie,
when she weighs in next week.
I found her eating her dessert down on the Mall this past weekend.
How do I know she's a she?
She's eating chocolate, 'nuff said.
