Weigh-In Wednesday: What works and what doesn't. Just so you know.

Sisterhood Spring Fling Challenge

Today I am all angsty.

My "Christie On a Treadmill at the Mall" event is Saturday and each day that passes, I won't lie, in theory I think it's hilarious that someone will make a spectacle of themselves by walking on a treadmill in their mall wearing whatever, but on the flip side, I am becoming increasingly aware that that person will be me. My self-consciousness is showing. Maybe if I can get through another cup of coffee, I can be awake enough to maybe shut my brain off. My chest is starting to hurt a little and I have nervous knots in my stomach!

I'm sorry. That's not why you're here. You're here for the weigh-in. Which is not good news, my friends. So, I will sum it up for you.

What works: daily accountability posts in "The Hood" with the rest of my friends at Team G.
What doesn't work: Throwing all caution to the wind and stuffing my piehole with the only bacon buffet I can find at a convention aimed at bloggers who blog about health.
What works: Finding the time to run more than 12 miles during the weekend of a convention aimed at bloggers who blog about health.
What doesn't work: Immediately after, splitting an entire pizza. And dessert. (And I am not naming names with whom I've shared this experience.)

All of that equals a 1 pound gain and that's the end of that. So now that I know what doesn't work, I will try to spend the rest of the week working on what does. Not that I've started off well this week because I drowned my stressy sorrows in McDonalds cheeseburgers today.

OK so. Starting over. Startinggggggggggggggggggggggggggg NOW! And by the way, head on over to the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans -- visit the other sisters who are trying to get healthy, show them some support and read about the awesome party going on!

  1. For the record, I would just like to say I was not the one consuming pizza or dessert with Christie. ;p

    I'm pretty sure you will be burning those calories off soon enough.

    I completely admire you. I love that you are all sorts of crazy for charity. For real. If I could find a way to be there on Saturday to support you, I would in a heartbeat.


  2. Bwah ha ha. A bacon buffet at a health blogger convention? Awesome. I would have been right there with you!
    You are my hero for treadmilling at the mall, for reals. I wish I could be there!

  3. Don't worry about the 1 pound. You will be on a treadmill in the mall for a l.o.n.g. time on Saturday. I would never be able to do that. I think it's awesome.

  4. Don't worry about the 1 lb, girl, you will lose it on the treadmill. Good luck, I'll be thining about you.

  5. Yea, pizza and bacon are never a good thing. I've been there, so I know of where I speak ;)

    One pound isn't so bad when you're traveling and have to eat out. It could be just water too. You'll get it off.

    I wish I could be there to cheer you on at the mall. You'll do great. Just remember the reason why you're doing it, and some of the nervousness should go away.

  6. Pizza, bacon and dessert. Hard to pass those up especially when you are out with friends. I have a feeling that one pound is going to be gone in no time. Like Saturday for sure. You are such an inspiration. I wish you all the luck in the world.
    p.s. Who won the book?

  7. sounds like you might have some burpees in your future ;)

    seriously though - for this weekend's big event be sure you have plenty of snacks! it would probably be helpful to caculate how many activity points you'll earn - eat a few extra the night before then snack throughout the day. maybe giving yourself the splurge of the extra calories will keep you from binging?

  8. You will easily burn that pound off this weekend, you wacky treadmill running lady! But you are right, suck it up, learn from it and move on. No pizza or bacon for you this least not lots and lots!

  9. Honey, don't blame the Crispy Pancetta Chips... ; )

    I love you!
