Weigh In today isn't pretty. But it can all be explained by several weeks of poor choices, poor food tracking and terrible eating. Just like when you see progress by working out, eating right and just killing it with cardio and the scale is in your favor, well, this is just the opposite for me.
The good - The Girl Scout cookies are GONE from my house. I just can't eat one "serving". So with the exception of Chris's Savannah Smiles, all the rest of my temptation is gone. And I can easily skip Savannah Smiles (although they are yummy too - they just aren't like the crack that is Trefoils and Tagalongs). Next year I vow NO MORE GIRL SCOUTS COOKIES.
I also re-adjusted my calories on My Fitness Pal. I'm going to experiment a bit with 1670 calories per day. Which is awesome because that means more of these:

The bad - Still having flare ups with Plantar Faciitis. I. Am. So. Tired. Of. This. SHIT. The Feet insoles are working, but I can only wear them in my tennis shoes. They don't fit in my work shoes, so I'm having to use the heel pads again there. I think bouncing between the tennis shoes on the weekend and the work shoes are causing the problems. I'm not sure. I did discover something with the tennis shoes yesterday though when I was on the elliptical. My feet got numb. I've had the numb feeling before but it was with my new shoes and once I adjusted my laces and tied them a bit looser the numbness went away. I guess with my "regular" tennis shoes, the insoles add about 1/2 inch in some places and a bit more in others in height. So I will need to re-adjust my laces with those shoes. Duh moment for me there.
I really want to work my way back into running but I know that I need to wait this out.
The Ugly - I feel "fluffy". I haven't taken my measurements and honestly I'm scared to. I will just wait and do them in April. Cardio and weights will help with the toning so I'm ready to get back on those like a beast. I'm also hoping to start swimming again and maybe even take proper lessons so I don't swim with my head above water all the time. Chris has been toying with the idea of swimming lessons too. Did you know, Mr. Skinny Geek doesn't know how to swim? Yep. Weird huh?
Now down to business. I'm owning up to this. I'm not happy about it, but it is what it is.
And to add more insult to injury. Here's pics from yesterday. I haven't done a profile pic in a while. Not happy at all with how I look. Tiny disclaimer here, the shirt is an XL and it is big on me. But, I still feel like crap when I look at these pics.
Me in my 190 pound glory.
I know, I know. It's much better than where I started (244+) but geez, fluff doesn't begin to describe how I've been feeling lately so there it is.
On a much happier note, a bit of a brag on my mom! She bowled the best game in about 20 years on Monday!
