Weight Loss Wednesday

I just finished a half hour on the Wii Fit and I'm pretty sure that our dog was thinking I was crazy as she was watching me hula-hoop. I'll tell you though, that virtual hula-hoopin' is a good work out! Unfortunately my good old Wii told me I have gained two pounds this week. I know we fluctuate daily, but truthfully I know why I did not do well this week. It's the weekends that get me. I do well all week, and then weekends come and I just go for it all.

This past weekend we had a garage sale for our 3-day walk. We were busy Friday afternoon setting up and all morning Saturday. So into my mouth went not only a huge breakfast burrito but also one yummy donut. Not to mention that Garrett offers to bring home In-N-Out on Sunday and who can resist that?

So, what to do?? I can already tell you that this coming weekend is not going to be a good food weekend either. I am looking forward to it though! We are going camping with Kevin's cub scout pack in Ventura. We haven't been camping as a family, with the exception of our backyard, ever! The pack is providing the food though, and although I will bring along some of our own fruits and drinks, I don't honestly plan on eating salad while everyone else is enjoying camp food.

Next week though, I think I am going to try my friend Karen's diet that she's been on for 4 weeks and has lost 14 pounds. It's a fairly straightforward diet, but not much variety...which often leads me to go a little crazy. Maybe I'll just try it for the first week and see how it goes. I need some kind of plan, because the "eat right and exercise" routine isn't seeming to be enough to keep me focused.

So excited that you guys went camping. I could never, ever diet while camping. Too many smores and hotdogs to tempt me. And, I can eat THREE Dodger Dogs! AND, I hate to diet (any day of the week). Good luck to you. I love your weigh in Wednesdays. May I join in for motivation?
