The Weight Saga – Weeks 7 & 8

Total this week: +5lbs

Total Overall: 9lbs

Yea. Not a fantastic two weeks. I got call on Friday night, the 16th, that my Poppy had passed away and that E and I needed to go back to MD for the funeral. That meant eating on the road, driving at least 9 hours one way, and having an extremely messed up sleep and work out routine. Between visiting family and driving, there was no time for working out (unless I wanted to lose an hour of sleep and frankly, with all the emotions, there was no chance of that being feasible).

Then there was Thanksgiving. I didn’t limit myself but I did listen to my body. E parentals and my parentals came to our place and we did the tourist thing which was nice but again, that left little time to work out. That part was my own fault but I haven’t seen them since Sept so I really just wanted to catch up and visit and relax.

My need to relax = a gain of 5lbs. I’m hoping some of this weight is just bloat from other issues and I’m chugging water like it’s my job so I WILL see a loss this week. It’s just a matter of how much will I see.

While my ma was in town, we decided to continue my sunday baking and we made Pumpkin Roll

 One thing I learned — when they say have the cream cheese at room temperature — have the cream cheese at room temperature. I have cream cheese clumps now.

I think it was a bit heavy on cloves but overall, it wasn’t bad for my first attempt.
