Check In: Dusting Off



I had a gain this week and set back most of the 4 pounds I had lost. I know what I did wrong.

  • I ate sporadically this weekend. I did not eat breakfast on either Saturday or Sunday because coffee does not count as breakfast.
  • I bought Pepperidge Farm Goldfish. In a case of depressed mindless eating, most of the bag was gone.
  • I didn’t track.
  • I have been down more than I have been up.

This has been a rough week mood wise.

I had gone on a second date with someone I met off of Ok Cupid and he emailed me today telling me that “You're intelligent, funny and a good person but you aren't for me.” and the classic “I’d never introduce you to my parents but your fun to hang around.” Oh wonderful! Thanks.

He could have left the last line out.  Then I made a post about it on Facebook and my Dad in his round about way sounded like he was happy about it but talking to him tonight, it was the opposite. He does not want me to be depressed and down about myself.

Plus I have lost 2 Google Friend Followers this week to my blog. Hmm. I am one of those strange people that have to know who defriended me on Facebook so I can wallow about it. For some reason, it is bothering me and it shouldn’t. People come and go. Not everyone can handle talk about being depressed.

The good news, is that I have tracked today! I got in a lot of the good health guidelines and 30 minutes of working out on the elliptical machine during my lunch break. It’s a start of a good week.

  1. Since I began the Power of 1 I have gained every week! I have been on the treadmill and trying (but not succeeding too well)to watch my foods! Don't give up or get too disheartened. Like you titled your post -- dust your self off and start over! ( have made room beside me on the wagon☺)
    I have had 2 ppl leave my blog too this week! Must be "clean up your blog list" week!
    I hope the rest of your week gives you reasons to smile! (and not eat Goldfish!☺)

  2. What do you MEAN coffee isn't breakfast??? Awwwww crapmonkies.
    I stopped paying attention to the number of friends & followers I have. Much safer for my ego that way :)

  3. Jen, I can't believe that jerk said that. If you're not into me no big.. especially after 2 dates but to say he couldn't introduce you to his parents?? Why because they'd realize you are way too good for their crappy a$$ son?! And he doesn't deserve an awesome woman like you? The would probably have disowned him and introduced you to their "other" son.. the good one! ;)

  4. Oh, almost forgot... WTG on tracking! :) Keep it up!


I love your comments!
