Weigh In + Weekend Recap

I left my weight record book at home today, so no photo of my weigh in sticker–you’ll just have to take my word for it!

I gained 2.2 pounds this week, though I’m certain that most (if not all) of it was water. Since I don’t have a scale at home, I won’t know for sure until Saturday. However, I stayed within my points all week but had Chinese food on Wednesday (wonton soup, dumplings, and crab rangoons), and finished the leftover soup on Friday–I always bloat like crazy with Chinese food. I’ve also been constipated again–I’ve NEVER experienced constipation like this in my life (except when I was pregnant), and now I’ve dealt with it multiple times over the last 2 months. This is the pits!

On Saturday, I walked Karinne to her dance class and went for a run while I waited to pick her up. I didn’t want another experience like the previous Saturday, so this time I did 3:2 intervals, and ran super slowly, but I was able to finish my run!  I also made sure to have water with me, so no doubt that helped.

On Sunday, Marc took the kids out for a while and I cleaned like crazy. I didn’t do any “formal” exercise, but I still managed to earn 5 AP’s. After he got home, we put the kids down for naps and then I went to Starbucks to read for a while. One day, we’ll have a house with our own porch and I won’t have to go to Starbucks to enjoy reading (ha, who am I kidding?! I’m sure I’d still go.). I downloaded The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing on my Kindle; I keep hearing great things about it, so I’m looking forward to continuing my decluttering project with renewed zeal. My hope is that images like this…

and this…

will become a thing of the past. Fingers crossed!
