Weigh - In Wednesday


For those of you who forgot...
I finished the 10 Day Advocare Cleanse last Thursday.
I was stoked to report that I weighed in at 152.

Today, I am not so stoked to report I weighed in at 156.
I felt great after the cleanse and continued eating pretty clean up until Saturday at about 6:30 pm.

The concert we went to on Saturday was a little over 2 hours away.
We left a little early so I could stop by a Dick's sporting goods store to get my "13.1" car magnet.
I then perused the store for a little bit.
Well, actually longer than I thought...
(Someone please tell me why I couldn't find compression socks anywhere nor an associate to tell me if they had any. And trying to decide on whether or not to get a foam roller...already regretting the decision not to.)

Ok,'re right. I'm stalling from telling you why/how I ate so crappy.
Add in a longer than expected stay at Dick's plus awful traffic to get to the arena and we're chowing down on some overpriced soft pretzels (Um, duh, cashier teen, of course I want mine salted!), and a chicken tender combo. (But, I shared that with the hubs...)
Not to mention a few beers later that led to a 12 am Sheetz run!
Enter Sunday and a slight beer bloated hangover and I'm eating anything and everything in sight.
All day long.
I may or may not have raided my mother-in-law's stash of candy for the Easter Egg Hunt she does at her church.
I only grabbed a handful of those mini Twix.
And maybe a handful of mini Snickers. 
And maybe a handful of mini Kit Kats.
What?!?!?! They were mini...

And I haven't stopped eating awful shit since.
Playdate chips and dips and pizza and cake? Yes, please!
12-year-old cousin's birthday cake and ic cream? Sure!

Ugh! Why can't I seem to remind myself how shitty all this crap food makes me feel when I'm forking it into my mouth?
The problem is, I don't want to continue eating this badly, but in the back of my mind I know I'm thinking,
"eh, Easter is this Sunday and I already know I'll do piss poor on that day, so why bother these next couple days until then?!?"
Who the eff does that?!?
This girl right here, folks.

I don't like the sluggish and blah feeling.
My tummy really hates me when I do this.
But I know I don't feel entirely motivated to really kick it into high gear until after Easter's over.
Well, ain't that just a bitch, Kyra?!?!

On a good note, I did lift weights/leg work Sunday night, yoga Monday night and ran Tuesday.
Can I get some bonus points at least?!?!

Sweet Lord Baby Jesus!!
Pray for me, ya'll!
I need to sucker punch my inner fat girl the rest of this week!


  1. It's an absolute mental battle girl! I think everyone is so focused on the physical battle- I swear gym memberships need to come with therapy!

  2. I have this battle A LOT. I did last week too! Thankfully something (I don't know what) knocked me into gear, which normally does not happen. Also, I've never eaten food at Sheetz! I don't even know if there is one around here?!?

  3. Pro Compression Marathon Socks - Nike said "just do it". Ordering is online, use coupon code MARCH2013 (I think that's it, let me know if it doesn't work) for 30% off and FREE shipping. Do it for mother Russia...What? Robin Williams says it -

    Grrr, isn't that the worst? Knowing you ate like poo, feel like poo, yet continue to shove crap in your pie hole?! The whole I think "wtf Marcia, wtf"

  4. That is the worst feeling, but I think every woman who has ever struggled with her weight, who lives with the inner fat girl inside her, goes through this battle! You are not alone! Blue cheese burger with crispy fried onion strings and a side of onion rings for good measure from Red Robin last Saturday? - YES, I DID THAT!!! Oh, I should not forget to mention the GIANT cannoli cupcake that followed. I'm still working that shit off :/ Hang in there! I have no doubt you will whip that inner fat girl back into shape!

  5. I ate horrible all weekend too. Woke up on Monday ready to start a new week of eating clean. Then at lunchtime I went to Target to get my son's Easter basket goodies and saw an aisle full of Cadbury Creme Eggs and Peeps and it all went down from there.

  6. I am afraid that's what I'm gonna do. I'm on day 3 of the cleanse now. I'm sure the hung drinking played a huge role in the binge eating. Don't beat urself up girl. I think when you gain it fast you lose it fast. You got this shit sista!

    Oh and associates at dicks are Dicks.
