So, I gained this week.
I didn't actually go over my points... but I did eat total crap this week. Pizza. Fried Southwestern Spring Rolls. Beer. Heath Bar covered cheesecake. Which means I was short on oils, vegetables, didn't really chose whole grains... ya know. Crap. Oh, but my my, it was tasty.
I still haven't become that crazy woman who doesn't think that cake is very good. I enjoy the hell out of most of the high fat, high calorie food that I eat. (Well, except for the pizza. I sort of ate that without really thinking much about it... by the time I ate, I was starving and had been playing pool and dancing and whatnot all evening, so I wasn't thinking, just eating. Kinda sad. I like pizza.)
On the plus side, I'm still working out three days a week. I'm still doing the push up challenge.
And really, I don't feel too bad about my gain. It was 1.6 pounds, which is sort of annoying because it's more than I lost last week, which means my net over the last two weeks is... still a gain. Yuck. However, I'm not that distressed. Having the push up challenge gives me something with which to feel successful. I'm now doing 48 push ups in a session. A few weeks ago, I could only do three in a set before collapsing.
Today, I restarted the C25K program.
I didn't have a problem with the running (although I did have problems with my hair staying up... I must have retwisted and pinned it at least four times because it kept falling down.) Running on the treadmill helped a lot with the jolting that I got in my legs in previous attempts. Not to mention my breathe control and endurance has increased... I could not only breathe easily while running, but actually managed a short conversation with a fellow exerciser.
Despite my gain, it's been a good week...
