Day 186

Last night I felt like baking. I was ready to die from Zumba but a Upside Down Sunshine Cake sounded really good. So I made one.

Woke up this morning to sore legs. Not as bad as I thought but I was sore. I went on a walk with my daughter this afternoon and a run by myself after dinner. I am hoping to go to Zumba tomorrow night. I will only get to do 45 min. because Rachelle has soccer but it will be 45 min. of fun!

I have made some bad choices this weekend. Enough bad ones to get the scale to do what I don't want it to do. Now I feel like I am in a battle with it by Thursday to get it to go back down. I am really upset with myself. I was doing good and I guess for a minute I thought I could handle it. Lesson learned. This is going to be a battle the rest of my life.

I just want the joy of the number that I saw on Thursday. I know I can get it back. I have to.

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." -Mark Twain

wow am I impressed at the cake you baked, as you know I dont have those skills.
Make sure you have NONE of that lying around when I come sleep over soon..we have to train,run, do class and eat healthy!!

I think its water gain..salt on popcorn is hectic...and salt on restaurant food as well. Drink lots of water and keep burning the calories.

Are you willing to try something with me. For 2 months weight yourself only once a week. It will be difficult but think of it like waiting for your birthday to open a present. See how that works for you. I find if I weigh too often I get obsessed and end up doing more bad then good. Stick to a weekly weigh in and see if how it goes. If after 2 months it hasnt helped try something new

Ohhhhhhh that cake looks delicious, I so want to take a bite of it.

Great job Sarah: and a walk and a run today after yesterday's Zumba.

You'll get back at it Sarah. It's just one day of too much food, likely not enough to create a pound of real weight.

I'm impressed considering if it were ME, I probably wouldn't be able to walk for a week, haha. The cake looks fruity and delish!

Good job on you 3.6 pound loss!! I just got caught up on your blog. I wanted to tell you that you WILL feel that joy again. Just be patient and focused. It will come.

I actually enjoyed your food ideas. The 100 calorie popcorn bag looks like something I should try.

Ramen noodles...maybe not.

I like how your nails match the color in your shoes. Very nice.
