Weight Watchers Karma?

Last week I had a completely undeserved lousy .2 loss after working my butt off at the gym and eating on plan all week. I was called out of town last minute for work and have been living at a hotel for the past few days. No gym time and random, sporadic eating has been my life. I just got home and jumped on the scale and this is what I was greeted with:

2 pounds... and it is evening.. and I just ate dinner. It is the first time I have seen a number below 220 - WOO HOO! So now it is confession time.. I did not eat very often while I was gone because I was working most of the time.

Yesterday I had coffee with milk and splenda, a non-fat chai latte, a Starbucks breakfast sandwich, green curry prawn rice bowl, and a GIANT PIECE OF CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE. There was some bok choy in the rice bowl but other than that not another veggie nor fruit passed by my lips all day and I only drank about 1 litre of water all day.

Today was a bit better. I had a fruit smoothie, a pizza bun (!!), a non-fat chai latte, a fruit and yogurt parfait, diet coke, grilled salmon, rice and salad.

I know that this is not a healthy way to lose weight but I think the drastic change in my eating and exercise pattern shook up my metabolism a bit.. unfortunately I feel tired and sluggish because of too much work, not enough sleep, not enough water and not enough nutrients! I have to go back out of town Wed-Thursday this week and then DH and I are leaving for vacation (and our much anticipated bike trip). I will make it to WI on Wednesday and have my fingers crossed that I might hit the 50lb lost mark.

it's amazing what a different WATER can make for me when I feel tired (yada yada yada science here about your blood thickening when you dont drink enough water :))...even more than COFFEE (shocking, I know)

confession is good for the soul they say. lol. We've all had days/weeks like that. (when I'm trying to remember what I ate that grew from the ground rather than a factory.) :P

Congrats on your loss! and GOOD LUCK at making the 50 pound goal! woo hoo!
