Week Five Weigh-In!

This entire week I've been sick. Probably a cold, possibly a sinus infection but I don't think so. Regardless, I have done nothing this week. I even had a hard time eating all the points I was supposed to, but I had heard that not eating when you're sick, no matter how good that sounds, can actually throw your body off track and slow everything down and cause you to gain weight. Definitely didn't want that. So I struggled to eat each day, figured I lost at least a pound of gunk from my lungs, and did no workout whatsoever. The most I ever moved was shopping at Target or Kroger this week. Those shopping carts can be heavy, man. It's a mom's workout. Or, I can use Lauren Hammond's theory: I breastfeed. There's my workout. It burns calories, so it counts, right?

Speaking of Lauren, I'm so excited that she joined Weight Watchers today! I have an official accountability buddy, and since we both have a weakness for chocolate I think we'll help each other squelch that desire in the name of better health :)

But I digress. It is Friday, which means weigh-in day. Last week I weighed in at 171.2 pounds. This week I weigh in at

171.2
Yeah... I didn't lose anything this week. But on the bright side, I didn't gain anything. I guess I should be thankful that I had a completely sedentary week and didn't set myself back any. I DREAD getting back to my workout game in a couple of days once I'm feeling better because I know I'm going to feel it totally kick my butt again, but it's obviously helping. Whodathunk that eating less and exercising more would lead to weight loss? Seriously, they should like, publish articles about this stuff. Brilliant. :)

What bothers me more about this week is the way I look in this picture. Sure, it's an old t-shirt and it has drool on it. Sure this was taken at night and I look way worse without makeup with a flash than in natural light. But it also just seems like it's time for a change. I've cut my hair for Locks of Love twice before, and I'm ready to do it again. It's spring, I have a child who LOVES to grab whatever he can reach with his hands (which is why I've been sans earrings and necklaces lately) and I'm just not feeling pretty with long hair right now. If I feel cute then I'll have more desire to continue to try and make my whole overall appearance better. So, time to say goodbye. A good 10 inches may be gone by the next time you see me.
