I apologize for being AWOL this past week. Hubs and I decided to go away to cottage country for the long weekend. It was a last minute decision that left us scrambling on Thursday.
Now, the cottage is a very dangerous place for me diet-wise. Couple that with the rainy weather we had to endure and...let's just say it was one of the LEAST active weeks I've spent up there. The good news is that I managed to make some pretty good choices. Well....as long as you don't count that piece of sinful chocolate cake I ate on Saturday night to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th birthday! I don't regret it one bit. It was the first real indulgence I've had in weeks and weeks and it felt good to have a small piece on this special occasion.
I managed to lose 2 pounds this week. This left me just 3 pounds shy of my goal to lose 15 pounds by Labour Day as part of Clyde's iTouch challenge. So, I give myself a big FAIL on the challenge, but you know what? I'm quite happy with the result. I purposefully set a lofty goal to help motivate myself. Twelve pounds in one month ain't too shabby, if I do say so myself. ;)
Now, I'm off to get in my run for the day and make a delicious healthy meal plan for the rest of the week. Have a good one!
Pssst - you should stop by Clyde's site to congratulate him on accomplishing his goal of losing 50 pounds by Labor Day. WAY TO GO CLYDE!!! You are an inspiration! ;)
