Weigh In Wednesday Week 35: Can’t Outrun a Cruddy Diet

Welp. I didn’t want this to happen, but I saw it coming. I hit the 50 pound milestone last week. Hooray! But then this week, I kind of let loose a little when it came to eating. I still went balls to the wall with running and exercise, but I also did things like eat at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries It was super delicious, and super bad for me, haha! I had a small burger (aka A NORMAL SIZED BURGER) and Andrew and I split a regular fry. It was 21 points plus for what I ate! When I only get 26 points in a day, that’s kiiiind of detrimental!

That was my only meal that was *really* bad, so I thought I might be okay. But then I remembered all of my little drive by snacking that I’ve done. Ritz Baked Chips, anyone? I am pretty sure I kept within my weekly points, but I never usually eat into those. I kept myself active, though! Every single day, I did something to earn back some activity points. I even took all three kids hiking solo! We had such a great time.

Freckleberry Fit (by the way…do you follow me on Instagram? I post a lot!)

See? I had my rear in gear! But without the proper foods, my body wasn’t having it. I ran and ran, and even upped my shreds to level 2 (omg. the planks. i die.), but …

The Weigh In

…it wasn’t enough. I weighed in this morning at 157.6 pounds. That’s a .2 increase from last week, bringing me to a total of 49.8 pounds. I’m not going to sweat it, honestly, but I’m also going to take this week and learn from it. I have always preached that you need to track every. bite. of food. that you put in your mouth. Bite it, write it! Also, I am vowing to skip soda for a week. I need to take baby steps towards scrapping that nasty habit!

Also, you guys let me know about your weekly successes! Here’s a few: 

Lauren H. said “I’ve finally hit the 10lb lost mark this week! I’ve been watching my carbs this week and it’s proving to get the scale moving in the right direction!”

Candi B. said “I’ve lost 82 pounds since my oldest was born and we just celebrated his 2nd birthday on the 15th.”

Great job, guys!!

Comments

  1. I gained two pounds somehow without a cruddy diet, but don’t worry, I ate the worst to comfort myself. Heck, I thought I was over that. It is so good to come to your blog and see that even with struggle, you hit the 50 (and you will hit it again!)

  2. I just started tracking food again almost a month ago, and dropped down to one soda 2 weeks ago. I’m down 4 inches in my waist and 3 in my hips, but scale hasn’t moved. I’m going to start exercising next week, but can’t decide what to do. I’d like to start running, but it’s hard to find the time because I have 5 kids and a hubby that works 60-70 hours a week.

  3. I cannot seem to stay on track. The weekends are the worst. I feel so defeated at times. I did get up and exercise this morning. I can do this just need a little extra help. Thank you for sharing your struggles and letting me know it is okay.

  4. I just stumbled onto your blog by way of pinterest. I have been doing weight watchers but have struggled with processed foods. I’m down to only paleo type foods for any kind of weight lose. This is what frustration feels like!
