Week 6 of #12WBT February 2017

Week 6 was a shocker of a week. After a terrible Week 5, I’d hoped to get back on the wagon in Week 6, the half-way mark. Sadly, that wasn’t the case.

While I exercised 5 days this week, the eating took a massive hit. Monday and Tuesday were fine but I did have a glass of wine on Monday after a stressful start to the week. Then on Wednesday, I had bookclub and due to another stressful day at work, succumbed to a cocktail and then sweet potato wedges. Needless to say, that wasn’t part of the meal plan. Thursday and Friday I kinda stuck to the plan but did have a beer on Friday night. Saturday was a bad bad day with regards to eating as I had my friend over and ate out for lunch, snacked on things like Oreos and ice-cream and had a homemade Mexican dinner which I doubt is 12WBT-approved. Then finally, on Sunday, I had brunch with some girls {a smoothie with dates, cacao, espresso and all that} and the same Mexican dinner from the night before. Amidst all this eating, I didn’t take any photos of the meals I actually made! Go figure.

So what do the scales say?

After Week 5, I gained 400 grams. Yep, you read that right. Gained.

I’m now scared to weigh myself in Week 7 after the shocking Week 6. I fear that all the weight I lost in the first 4 weeks might be back.

I won’t deny the last two weeks have been stressful at work. Management is so not for me. Give me all the clients in the world and I’ll handle the stress. But management? No, thank you. Another seven weeks and my team leader will be back. And then I’m never going to let her leave again!

So yeah, shit week. But I’ve got a week and a bit to try and rectify things before the next mini-milestone. I’m going to have to hope like hell that work isn’t stressful. But somehow, I doubt that.

Let’s see how I go for Week 7.

    Fingers crossed for Week 7. And at least you had sweet potato wedges, which are better than potato wedges. It was really sunny and warm here last week and I ate so well. All salads and protein. Not many carbs.
    It’s been cold and rainy the past couple of days and all I want is bread and cheese. So I can see how falling off the wagon would be so easy.

    Oh, Sanchie. What can i say? Shit happens. But it’s not a bad life. Just a bad day. 🙂
    Keep on keeping on. We’ll cheer you on.

    You sound like my daughter. She’s starting some sort of diet–with my son. She lives in Maryland and he lives in Texas. Should be interesting. They’re both 30 somethings, too.
