Extreme Makeover - Me Edition - Week 4

Is this week 4??? I'm too lazy to go check what last week was lol.

Amber started this weekly post and I think it's great to keep track of my own progress and also have the support of others...so jump on over there for the directions if you want to play along.

This week...I admit...I wasn't even going to post...but then I read Amber's post and thought "okay good, we are all (or likely most of us) in the same boat this week".

I most definitely blew it with Easter...in fact I decided I was off my diet as of Thursday and went out for lunch with some co-workers and indulged in a HUGE plate of fries and gravy. Pizza and beer that night...Friday I actually didn't do too bad...but then Saturday the boyfriend and I hosted dinner. Turkey, perogies...lots of mashed potatoes, stuffing!!! YUM YUM YUM. We had our Easter egg hunt on Saturday so there has been chocolate galore since early that morning. With my family around there was also quite a bit of beer drinkin' going on...oh how that stuff bloats you!

So this weeks question is:

What are you going to do this week to get yourself back on track??

First off is I must rid myself of the urge to eat ALL of the chocolate that was given to me personally (my grandfather gave me a solid chocolate easter bunny and the boyfriend's mom gave us both a big container of Reeses. I ate about 2,569 mini Reeses cups over the weekend (in my defence don't you have to eat at least 10 of those before it equals a whole regular size chocolate bar??). So last night I had my last few and told myself...this is it. The boy and the boyfriend can have my leftover chocolate. Better them gain the weight than me, right??? lol.

I also fell off the exercise wagon being so busy with all the festivities!

Tonight...I plan to get back on that elliptical. Perhaps we'll even head out for a walk in the park since the nice weather has finally arrived.

After my time on the elliptical I will do 100 crunches...I had just started this 2 weeks ago and even after only doing crunches 3x I was noticing a fairly significant difference.

So my goals this week are to eat better and get back to exercising...seems simple, right? Well I'll let you know next week if I managed to acheive these goals.

I'm trying to tell myself, what's done is done, just move on from here! Sounds like we're all in the same boat this week - here's to next week's update!

I think Amber was using her magic crystal ball thinking that we all had maybe gotten a bit off track...hehe.

Let it stay in the past! Today is a new day and week! You'll do great!

Staci said...

you can do it!!! Your post made me hungry!

I have eaten a million of those chocolate easter eggs - aargghhh. And I love peroigies -- so wonderful!

Good plan for this week! I'm glad the weather has turned for you. It is snowing here and I feel like a slug. Maybe I can get motivated tomorrow?

Good luck this week!


Amber said...

Mel, step away from the Reese's, and nobody gets hurt. lol.

I hear ya on EVERYTHING!

This week will be better!

Schmoochiepoo said...

I will be more than happy to volunteer to eat all your leftover easter chocolate. I am willing to make that sacrifice for you.

Good luck getting back on track!

Have a great night!

I didn't want to post this week either!! I had to take all of the chocolate and put it in the basement.

Your plan sounds great. It is a simple concept, but when reality hits, not so simple. We are all in the same boat. Tough week.

Good luck this week!

Much love from NJ,
