Um, wow. The scale says I’m up SIX POUNDS from my 162.something on Wednesday. Now, I realize I’ve eaten restaurant food three times. There was a big birthday in there, some significant stress, and some stuff I’m now too Southern to post, but suffice it to say that six pounds is a huge dent to my self esteem.

I’ve also learned an important lesson: Do not order a 1/2 sheet cake for your 3 year old’s birthday. You will feel compelled to finish it because it was expensive. This is especially true when you can’t pawn huge chunks off on people at Chuck E. Cheese like we managed to do last time. I will say this, it will be finished tomorrow. Given that a 1/2 sheet serves 80 people, I’ll leave you to figure out how much cake we’ve eaten per person in six days. Gag.

I haven’t skipped any workouts, so I don’t believe that this is an actual gain. I should have actually LOST  a pound this week, according to the math. But it’s a bummer.

OK, I’m done whining about it. I’ve got to get myself back to the gym tomorrow after taking today off with a sick little one. Can’t wait to see my numbers fall again!
