Yikes! 168 pounds!

I weighed myself at the gym this morning. I was 168! I almost died. I haven't seen that number in several months. I was wearing my gym shoes, had drank three cups of coffee and some water, but still, that's absolutely horrible.

If you read my post earlier this morning you know what happened. It's too much of a good thing. Eating out.

That weight on the scale shocked me into reality. I can't eat out every day or if I do, I have to really gain control. Eat half or less, don't take leftovers back to the room (I have a fridge and microwave), and work out harder.

After my little weigh-in freakout I decided I had to go to a spinning class for maximum burn. It was a killer class. In 45 minutes I burned 487 calories. I did weights for 40 minutes for another 200 calories. Total burned this morning was 687 calories.

I also haven't been drinking water this week because where I'm working has the women's bathroom on the other side of the security door which means I need an escort to get back in. The men's bathroom is inside security. Totally sexist and annoys the heck out of me. Today I'm going to drink a ton of water and they'll just have to escort me every hour or so.

Well, the fight is on. I feel pretty confident now that I know the damage I've done. I can get back on that horse. This time I'll be holding on for dear life.

Take the stress level down a notch lady!

Hey I'm the queen of self destruction and self hate...I know how you feel.

At some point we just have to say well fuck and get back on the horse, now's your time, just don't OVERDO it...cuz I know you will. Take care!

You have done fabulous work! I agree you need to take your stress level down a notch, relax and release that bloating water retention. Lots of water, lots of relax, and lots of positive self talk! You are beautiful, you are strong, and the best of who you are is on the inside.

Don't worry, once you get home and get back into normal routine, you'll drop that weight fast.

Also, is this a scale you've weighed on before? I never weigh myself except on my scale at home, because scales can be different by several pounds.

scales are all different, this is a fact. i feel like you should drink twice as much water just to show how unfair the bathroom placement is.

Whew! Boy I had the same thing this morning! You just want to stare in disbelief. Check the batteries, move it around to a new location...just in case. But alas...the truth sets in and you can hear my groan on the next block! Way to go on that calorie burn! That was insane!!
