Stepped on the scale yesterday morning and was rather shocked when it showed I had gained 2.4 lbs. Whoa!
I worked out all week and ate well - stuck to my points for the most part. The exception came on Saturday night when I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.
I anticipated we were going to eat prior to going to the theater but didn't take into account the time. We didn't get out of the theater until about 9:30 and by then I was famished. I had worked out for an hour that afternoon and hadn't eaten anything since the afternoon.
I never eat that late and ended up eating a bit too much but not enough to have warranted 2.4 lbs! I'm hoping it's water retention as my cycle is due up soon. I was incredibly frustrated yesterday but all I can do is stick to the program and hope that it is in fact just water retention..
SI: Ugh, I swear I'm doing fine until life decides to test me! My computer was infected with a virus this morning and I spent an hour and a half trying to fix my computer. S.I. is the first thing that comes to mind in circumstances like this. Again, I have to tell myself that it's a temporary problem and as soon as I calm down, I can better assess the situation.
Well, nothing was working so I ran McAfee virus scan and walked away. Got on the treadmill for an hour while the virus scan ran. Came back to check on the computer and it seems to work so hopefully it's fixed.
What pisses me off even more is what's the point of having McAfee if they don't protect your system from being infected by a virus in the first place?
Anyhow, I still feel really good about this decade of my life. I talked to my Weight Watchers mentor and her words really lifted me on how far I've come. So often I see it as how much further I need to go. She also shared how much her life has changed, from the person she was before WW to when she achieved her goal weigh. Ah, it takes forever but it is worth it and the changes aren't just physical.
While I have certain regrets over things I did and didn't do in my past, I'm rather hopeful for my future. I think as I get older, those regrets are like scars that diminish over time.
