Regroup and FMM

Happy Monday!  HA!
Today was my new Day One. Not that I really need a Day One, I just think at this point I may as well go with the notion that I'm resetting myself.  As you know, I haven't been feeling so hot as of late.  I'm still not feeling 100% myself but need to give myself a little time with eating better to see if that will push me up to that 100% mark.  
When I got dressed yesterday, something happened that hasn't happened in a very, very long time.  My pants were a bit tight. That was enough to scare me right back on to the straight and narrow. I hopped on the scale this morning to see where I am at and I'm up about 8 pounds.  This is the real deal.  Not water. Not retention. Not too hot. Just plain old icky fat. 
Not going to start beating myself up.  Since I wasn't feeling too well, I wasn't eating too well. I went over board and when we went away, I continued to go a bit overboard. I'm not going to cry about it. I'm not going to dive into a package of Oreos or have a hot fudge sundae over it.  I'm going to build a bridge and get over it. 
So, for my Day One:
Calories were around 1900. A little more than what I would like to see but I'm still within reason for my height/weight.   This was more of a planning error than an "I wanted to eat more so I did", sort of error.  My blood sugar plummeted and once that happens, it's very difficult to get regulated again. It's done and over with. Moving on. 
 I drank more water than I have been in the last month or so. And have had more fruit. Sadly, not so good with the veggies but am planning a big, huge salad for tomorrow's lunch.

Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions! Don’t forget to come back here and link up in the comments!  Happy Monday, friends!


  1. Hi Jenn! Well, I did a lot of 3 steps forward and 1 step back for weight loss. That's not such a bad thing as long as you start going forward again. Renew your good habits and just keep going. If you have the right attitude--then you've got this. :D

    1. I'm all over it. Don't worry 'bout a thing. :)

  2. Welcome to FMM! Glad to hear you are back on track (and I loved reading your FMM by the way!)

  3. Glad to hear you're getting right back into it! :)

  4. 25. Heard a song that was written for (or about) you? No. But I like to pretend a few of Jon's were written for me. haha!

    I live in that fantasy as well! :D

  5. "23. Finished a meal in a restaurant and realized that you didn’t have your wallet? No"

    I've heard stories....

    1. Lies! I tell you, lies!
      Or, I was a kid...a teenager. That doesn't count! :p
