Week #5

I did a boo-boo. I was doing pretty good this past week, until I got to the weekend. I didn't work out on Friday, as I had off due to us closing on the house (yay!) and figured this weekend was going to be full of walking, so I didn't think there was a need to go to the gym. Jimmy, Katie, and I went up to Baltimore this weekend to see the Orioles play against the Toronto Jets. The Orioles lost, but it was still a good game, especially since it was my first one. Well, I threw all caution to the wind this weekend, figuring it was a "free" weekend. I ate late at night, I had snacks that were not entirely healthy (i.e. candy bars), and I just all around didn't make the best choices this weekend, pretty much all because I figured I was working it off by doing all the walking. You've read before my thought process when it comes to my diet!
Well, because of all of this, I'm paying for it. I gained back those four pounds I had lost last week. I'm back up to 246. And I'm not going to the gym today because Mike and I moved this past weekend and we're trying to unpack. I'm actually at mom and dad's right now typing this as we don't have internet yet and I also had to pick up some stuff. (*sigh*) Hopefully once we get all moved in and settled I'll get back on my A-game and get back on track.


  1. Samantha I'm sure you know this but this smaller than a minor setback and almost expected with the success you have been having. I don't think you should feel bad at all and even all the more proud of the accomplishment that you have...accomplished...Anna and I are both excited to see you and Mike this coming weekend.

  2. did someone fail to tell me that eric and i now share a brain?? so in addition to what he said, the way i read this post is that in a way it's great this week happened because it allows you to learn more about your body and how it responds to food ---and that can only help you moving forward. i'm a proud member of team samantha!!! keeping up the great work!
