Weigh In Wednesday: 8/28/13 Taking a Breather Edition

Last Week's Weight:                                           220.2
Current Week's Weight:                                      221.8

Current Weight Gain:                                             1.6

Total Weight Lost:                                              88.2

So, after last week's realization that I needed to take a break from the Diet Bets, I decided that it was time for me to take a breather and my body is thanking me for it.  I'm watching what I eat for the most part, but I'm not going overboard.  I've exercised a bit, but not as much as I had been the rest of this summer.  Basically, I'm hitting the reset button.

I've done this several times through my process.  Whenever I get exhausted by everything (both mentally and physically!) I've taken a step back.  I don't go to any sort of extreme, I just kind of stop letting it rule my life.  I stop thinking about every single thing that goes into my mouth.  I stop counting every single calorie.  I stop exercising ALL THE TIME.  Whenever I take these breathers, I come back even stronger and am able to lose even more weight than if I had plowed through.

I'm actually happy that I only gained a pound and a half, because I really think I ate enough calories to warrant a larger gain.  It tells me that my body is comfortable with kind of staying at this weigh if need be.  I'm debating how long I want to take this break.  Maybe I'll just take a week, maybe I'll take a couple more.  Maybe I'll come back from the holiday weekend and hit the ground running (literally!).  We shall see.

In other news, I'm back at work now.  No more carefree summer days!  I'm back to the real world of preplanning meals and scheduling time for my workouts.  No more flying by the seat of my pants.  I'm still in NYC and will be for a couple more weeks and then I head off to the mystical land of York, PA with the show.  

All I gotta say is... Working is hard y'all! :)
