I am totally bummed out this go-around with my Fit at Fifty Week Five.  I thought for sure I had dropped at least two pounds as my jeans are feeling baggy;  maybe from wearing them too much!  I think my scale may be broken or needs an update as it said 93 pounds, then 123 pounds and then the 3rd time (not a charm) said 153.  WHOMP!  WHOMP!  WHOMP!  I gained a pound, and feel kind of shitty for it happening.


I was home part of the week, which I was really good at with eating as well as working out.  Then we were at a conference rest of the week.  Which meant no working out (we stayed at an apartment), I did okay with the eating but not a lot of veggie action and I overindulged in socializing and cocktailing.  I knew when I ate a couple slices of greasy pizza at the airport that I was doomed.

I feel like I am back at the beginning of the drawing board.  This is what being accountable is all about, right?
