WL Progress Report (Week 3)

Still logging on MyFitnessPal (add me @ melissa_ortegar)!

So I last blogged Tuesday, a little over a week ago. That Thursday morning Yuri and I drove up to Winston Salem, NC to visit one of our best friends! We came in with the mindset to not pig out as much, but at the same time I hadn't seen my friend since last year so I decided I was going to enjoy myself if anything came up 🌝.
We didn't do as bad as we thought. I think the extent of it was a large McDonalds big mac meal. . . . too many cheese and crackers? of course eating outside my hours- oH AND for me almost a full bottle of a LARGE wine and about five shots of vodka. . .  definitely not my proudest moment but I was chill. I knew I wasn't going to drink for a long time so I think I just took advantage of being off the horse (yeah, don't do that). We were there for four days and when I came home I think I was just up a pound 🙃.

We drove back down Monday and got home around 8pm. That night and all of Tuesday and Wednesday I felt SO shitty and depressed. There was just like a dark cloud over me and I felt so SAD. For now it's gone, even though it was not provoked by anything I'm going to make sure I don't get into a funk like that again- I'm being proactive 😉

Food wise I need to step it up. Earlier this week I went grocery shopping and I just got some essentials. Eggs, cereal, oatmeal, whole grain bread, turkey, milk, etc etc (don't know why I felt compelled to share something everyone does regardless lmao??). Last week I was eating the Strawberry Special K that was already at my house, but I preferred the fruit and berry so I got that. Verdict? It was just way sweeter than I remember it. Blegh. Today I sprinkled some on top of my oatmeal, since on its own it is very very plain.

But for example- yesterday I had a banana, oatmeal, yogurt, grapes, and berries. For dinner I went to Burger King (mostly for my siblings) and I had a chicken salad (ok..?) then I WAS LIKE WELL I'LL ORDER MEDIUM ONION RINGS AND BUFFALO SAUCE TO DIP THEM IN SINCE I STILL HAVE CALORIE WIGGLE ROOM *sigh*. Thankfully (lol) I ate about.... five.... before I was like okay no (my whole life always boils down to: I could be doing so much better).

post workout
We were walking three miles last week and now we're doing four- it's just a little extra but you can feel it. Plus the trail is beginning to feel shorter (whew). I am jogging much more than before, but I want to improve. Since we do this daily I'm sure I'll be where I want to be sooner than later. Today, I went to the store and bought some new sports bras, socks (hehe), and a yoga mat! I've wanted one for a while, but just for the sake of having one. Now, I find myself wanting to do some basic workouts at home but I don't want to be directly on the hard floor. So I'm excited to put it to good use (i'll let y'all know how it goes).

So I was like "ehhh" 🤭 about saying my weight because that's how shocked I was about it (but let's be real here I saw it coming). ANYWAYS, I really don't care because what changes if I say it? May 8th I was legit mortified and had a text breakdown with Yuri, I weighed 201.6lbs 🤮.  Today, June 1st I weighed 192.2lbs. Even though it's been three weeks it feels like nothing has changed? I mean its only 9lbs so no big changes will show but I have to remind myself 9lbs is SOMETHING.
