Weigh In (7/25)

It's a good thing I declared I was getting back in the saddle, because this week's weigh in definitely reflected my poor choices as of late...

Talk about a wake up call! That's 3 weeks straight of gains... the previous two, I could easily chalk up to other things, but this one is no joke.

It's over and done with, and I faced the music. Now it's back to my regular routine!

On Friday, we received notice that we (the entire Eastbank of New Orleans) were under a boil water advisory until further notice. Something happened in the middle of the night that caused the water pressure to drop too low or something, and it wasn't until around 10:30am that we were notified not to drink the water, brush our teeth, shower, etc, without boiling the water for at least 1 minute. So, that was awesome (not really).

When I got up Saturday, the advisory was still in effect, so I went to my WW meeting unshowered (maybe some of the extra weight was the added dirt I was carrying around? no?), but I managed to brush my teeth with bottled water so I wasn't completely disgusting. I went to my hair appointment right after that so at least I got my hair washed! I finished my meal planning and grocery list, and then went to Costco, Target, and Rouse's to do my shopping.

I had to go home between every stop to put the cold stuff away because it was like Dante's Inferno outside, and in my car--only one of our cars has air conditioning, and since Marc was taking care of the kids so I could run all these errands, he got to have the car with a/c. Since it was so hot, and I still couldn't shower, I also changed clothes every time I went home. It was awesome.

We were finally allowed to use the water around 5:15 Saturday evening; the tests came back and it turned out the water was fine the whole time. Big sigh.

It feels good to have lots of good food in the house again. This morning, I had my blueberry overnight oats and a banana, and I have some dinner leftovers, a peach, and strawberries to get me through the day.

It's gonna be a great week!


  1. Stinky scale. Keep your chin up and keep moving forward. My lunch is a leftover chicken and a giant peach too :)

  2. Sounds really uncomfortable - especially when it is hot. I am glad you can use the water again. I had a 2lb gain this week. Not fun. But, you are back on track, and that is all that matters. My lunch is leftovers and plums.

  3. How hard not to be able to use your water! Glad everything is back to normal now. As for your gain, jump back on track and don't look back!

  4. How hard not to be able to use your water! Glad everything is back to normal now. As for your gain, jump back on track and don't look back!

  5. :) take care.
    And, I have gained some *bohoo* but I need to get back in action.

  6. Sometimes all we need is that little kick in the pants to get back to it. You've got this!

    I honestly cannot imagine living in the south with a car with no A/C. My delicate flower of a self would melt into a puddle.

  7. I remember that part of living in the South vividly. You step outside and immediately feel like you need a shower or new clothes because it's so hot and humid. Glad your water is back to normal!

  8. It's no fun not being able to use the water or not having hot water even. I'm sure that you will have a big loss this next week!

  9. Ouch sorry about the gain but sounds like you are on the right path now. OH man. Big bummer about the water. Hope that doesn't happen again.


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
