No shocking news here. As predicted I had a gain this week. It was only 0.8 pounds (0.3 kilos) which wasn't nearly as bad as I was imagining but still a move in the wrong direction.

I missed (skipped is a better word I think) the gym on Wednesday and Friday I still managed to go for a bike ride on Friday and Saturday. We did get to the gym on Sunday so I didn't totally slack off in my exercise.

As confessed in my prior post I had a horrible eating week from Tuesday to Friday but after posting I cleaned things up a bit to take me through the weekend.

My period is on it's way out (thank God) so next week I don't have that to hide behind. Although my exercise has been less than consistant in the last few weeks I know that it's my food intake that's kicking my butt.

It's times like these that I wish I didn't have to think about food. I wish I had a magic food fairy that would wake me up with a nice balanced breakfast, set me up with a lovely healthy lunch at work and then have a tasty dinner sitting at the table when I arrived home from work. She would pack me healthy snacks and act as my blinder throughout the day when the ugly unhealthy snack monsters reared their heads tempting me with their sugary goodness.

I just wish it weren't up to me to make all these darned decisions.

But alas... it is up to me. The food fairy is only a figment of my imagination. I am in control of what I put in my mouth day in and day out. It's my choices to make, nobody else to blame or count on. So pardon me as I go strap on my fairy wings and pack mysef a healthy set of snacks to take to work with me today. I think I have the recipe for fairy dust somewhere here.

To be honest my dear girl, I have not weighed in for sometime. I am waiting until I get back from holidays, then I am attempting Personal training.
Now, dont' be made. It's only fat. It's not a reflection on who you are.
Now, to the matter at hand. I am very happy to have discovered you. I think you are wonderful, and hence I have nominated you for a thinking award!! CONGRATULATIONS!! Please visit my blog for details.
By the way, my next post is dedicated to you, as you inspired it!

Ugh. For me, it's keeping up the motivation to exercise. I've signed up for races from now until October to force myself to keep at it.

Aww, it happens. We all have weeks like yours. The key is to just keep going, keep going, and keep going.

I know you're going to do that. You want this. You can do this. Just keep reminding yourself!

To touch on your Fairy...if you find one, please ask if she has any friends/siblings/associates willing to come help a chubby girl in SoFla!

If you can't find her, how about we just try to help each other out? I think I happen to look adorable with wings and a tiara.
