So, it's Tuesday and it's truth night.....holy crap-ola....what a truth night it is.
Here is the truth:
I went to Niagara and got fat! I mean, you probably can't tell to look at me, but I think the scale groaned a little when I got on. From what I can tell, I gained roughly 5 lbs in 3 days!
Do I regret it? Yes and no! I regret that I took an awesome calorie burning opportunity and ate it away. I mean, once we got to Niagara, we walked everywhere. I could have chosen to eat in moderation a bit more and also not snacked on the junk we brought from home...like Wine Gums. I mean, I felt FULL the entire time we were away!
But in regards to NOT regretting it? I enjoyed all the meals out! We asked the kids at dinner tonight what their favorite part of our trip was? They enjoyed the waterpark and while both my husband and I both enjoyed watching them have fun and spending time with them....my favorite part was the food! Perhaps it was the fact that I didn't have to cook it or prepare it or prep it. In was delightful in all it's greasy goodness.
If I'm being truthful, it wasn't just the weekend away that did me in. I pretty much ate like crap since last week. I am prepared to get back on track tonight. Now that I am at home....I feel BLECH!
Tomorrow starts the 30-Day Squat Challenge and I wanted to also start my Couch to 5k again in May. It was a bit of a toss up if I should start both. The squats will be killer and I know for a fact that if I am doing them properly, I won't be able to walk afterwards, let alone run. I think I will do this. Go for a run tonight and then proceed to start the 30 day death trial tomorrow as planned. If I am too sore, then running will go to the back burner for the next month or sporadic days when I feel well enough to do so. My hubby is also going to do the squat/death challenge with me, so that should be fun and encouraging.
I will check in tomorrow and recap day 1 of the 30-Day death trial! :-)
