Round 7- Week 1 Weigh-In

Sorry for being such an ahole and not posting for a while. I know during the week between games, I made a promise to myself to post what I ate to help keep myself in check and accountable. I thought that would do the trick. Sadly, it didn't. I still need to figure out a better way to not ruin four weeks worth of work during one week off.

The week off was filled with lots of bad food and little exercise. I started off strong, but my follow-through just wasn't there. And by the end of the week, I had gained nearly 12 lbs. Yep. I know. Total ahole. And disgusting, right? I've always had this mentality of "must get it all in" right before I'm about to start a new diet. And the thing with the Game is that when you're playing the game, it takes all of that out of it. With the built in meal and day off, you don't have to line up all of your last meals; you get to still enjoy those kinds of things while playing. It's one of the reasons I enjoy the game the most.

One thing I will say is that during the week off when I was eating like an ahole, eating things like a bacon egg and cheese biscuit from McDonald' wasn't that good. I'm discovering that I may be craving these foods, but when I actually eat them, they're not as good as I remember or even want them to be. So I'll take that small victory and try and remember it when I'm trying to cram all the bad food in I can in a short period of time.

We started another round of the game on Wednesday, February 10th and after the shame I felt stepping on the scale, I brushed myself off, went to the grocery store to stock up on things like frozen chicken breasts, brown rice, scallops, mahi mahi, greek yogurt, hit the Farmer's Market to get fresh blueberries and bags of lettuce, got my ass back in the gym (very easily, I might add) and went about my business to get back in the game- pun intended.

Here's what I'm finding- it's easier to follow the game this time around. I got up at 555am on Tuesday to go to a spin class. Instead of feeling sleepy and blah upon waking, I was energized and excited. Spin class was easier and I was able to ride more of the hills which felt great. But the game in general this past week has been good. I don't feel like it's a struggle, although it's been quite some time since I felt that way, but it feels better. In some ways I always feel a sense of relief when I get back on game and this week was no different.

When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was very happy to see that was I was 8.6lbs lighter. Hooray. Almost making up entirely for the week off, I did feel slightly guilty that I was the week's biggest loser, but mostly grateful that my body continues to respond.

Here's to hoping better choices will be made in between games!
