Mondays are not my friend.
I feel like an hamster spinning in their wheel.
But, I’m ok with that. Really. 🙂
Morning snack = pretzel goldfish & chocolate graham goldfish
Lunch = left over flatbread & salad
The left over gorgonzola cheese & pear flat bread from Crisper’s yesterday was a bit soggy after being reheated, but the great flavor was still there. I might be the only person in the world who really loves soggy reheated pizza. 🙂
The side salad was a simple mix of spinach, olives, carrot, tomato, peanuts, craisns, and hummus.
They were out of arugula at my grocery store on Sunday. That makes me sad. 🙁
A Weighty Issue
Weight goes up, weight goes down, weight goes up, weight goes down, repeat.
I’m not going to sugar coat it.
After an indulgent month of traveling – Hello New Orleans & San Francisco! – and seven course meals – I heart Foodbuzz 24,24,24! – my jeans have been a wee bit tighter lately.
For example… Derek found it amusing that I had to unbutton my jeans so that the flight home from San Francisco would be a bit more comfortable. Actually, I was laughing too – it was pretty funny. :)
I had a few weekends in a row of eating dessert with every meal, minimal activity, lots of drinks, and I hate to say it, but it all caught up to me. It happens, but why waste time sulking? Such is life.
A year ago I gained 8 pounds while training for my first marathon. After a couple of months I was back at my happy weight with little to no effort. This past fall I lost 5 pounds while training for my second marathon. Again, after a couple of months I was back at my happy weight with little to no effort.
And by ‘little to no effort’ I mean I continued to eat well, exercise regularly, and fall back into my normal routine of living life the way I want to live it.
Now I’m up 5 pounds from my happy weight and I’m looking to follow the same method as before. I’m going to live my life and continue to make healthy decisions, stay active, and I know it will all even out in the end.
For now my pants may be a little tight, but my body is still strong and it is still amazing and I know I will never forget that.
I am Meghann and I am awesome! 🙂
