Weigh in - Easter candy is the devil edition

Last week's weight - 268.8

This week's weight - 270.0

1.2 pounds GAINED

59.4 pounds lost since June 2010

Posting early because I just want to get this out of the way. I knew a gain was coming, I always do, the difference this week is it was FULLY DESERVED. Two words: EASTER CANDY.

Why I thought it was smart to pick up a couple Cadbury Eggs and Reeese's Eggs, is beyond me. I brought home 4 pieces of candy on Wednesday. I'm pretty sure they were gone by Friday.

This also happened:
My weekly snapshot from SparkPeople
Note: my calorie goal is 1700-1900, not what is listed

Three days this week of way more calories than I need considering my BMR (the number of calories I'd burn if I stayed in bed all day) is only around 2,100.

My exercise was good though - I got in my two strength training sessions (Powerlift and a 30 minute band DVD) and I also walked twice and did my regular Monday night yoga.

Exercise is going well, food is not going well.

I leave tomorrow for a two-day conference for work (yes, I also start my new job tomorrow). Then I will be home for 1 day and then leave for a wedding in my hometown. My goal this week is to just try to make the healthiest choices I can and watch portions. I will be taking cliff bars and fruit with me for snacks (you know they always have those stupid cookie trays in the afternoons at conferences). I will also try to exercise at least once while I am at the conference.

My plan is to do some major meal planning the following week. 250 is SO close!

Good luck on your new job.

At least you knew where the gain came from and you can move on from this point.
