True Confessions Tuesday

Here it is...in all its glory:

After having 2 very successful weeks in the food-logging and exercise-doing category, I had the weekend from "do everything you can to sabatoge your weight loss efforts" land. I had to go out of town for my daughter's first gymnastics meet of the season. This meant eating on the road (including - gasp! - McDonald's) and very minimal exercise. I brought my laptop so I could continue to log my food at dailyplate, but it crashed and I couldn't get it running again. We also had the worst hotel stay we've ever had, complete with a flithy room, someone's kids running up and down the halls all night, a "fitness center" with no working equipment and cold showers in the morning. I'm not proud that I went off on the hotel staff, but I did get our room rate reimbursed. I also yelled at Jill (our Garmin) for taking us some backasswards way back to the highway after exiting to put gas in the car. Apparently she doesn't like to go back the way she came. Clearly, yelling at a machine was not one of my prouder moments.

Although we had a long, exhausting weekend and I'm scared to see what the scale is going to say tomorrow, I got to watch this...

and finally this....

That's my baby girl in the green! 5th, 3rd, and 2nd place finishes, plus a great fundraiser for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Even if my weight is up a bit, it was worth it.


  1. Good perspective and good insight into what was difficult. Congrats to your daughter - You have got to be so proud!

  2. sorry that you had issues with the hotel, but good for you for speaking up!!!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!
