My experience this week has been much like my darling husband's (read below). This week was supposed to be a stand-off week, but it was not a true stand-off. I didn't log my eating and I only got to the gym once this week...for yoga on Monday night. Life just got in the way this week.
Unlike my darling husband, even though I had a good loss this week, I don't feel like celebrating. My goal in this stand-off week was not just weight loss. My real goal was regaining the feeling that I was back to my routine...that feeling of being completely in control. My deep-seeded fear is that if I do not get back to routine (fast!) I will begin to backslide, just like I have a million times before. I refuse to let that happen again.
So, the hope is that next week will be true stand-off. Meal planning, food and activity logging, and at least 4 visits to the gym. Wish me luck!
Until next week,

P.S. Is anyone else completely psyched for the finale of "The Biggest Loser" on Tuesday night? Ali is my new idol...
