Weight Loss (Gain) Results-
Laura +0.6 lbs (Goal -2lbs/week)
I have been very busy this week and I have not kept up with my blog or my diet very well. Although I take responsibility, there is one clear culprit in my weight gain. That is the new Trader Joe’s in Kansas City. And their accessory in this crime is none other than their dark chocolate peanut butter cups:
and dark chocolate covered pretzels:
Be warned! They are highly addictive. I bought these for my husband’s lunches – – at least that is what I told myself. I’ve discovered I have no self-control when these are in the house. I would convince myself to substitute my daily chocolate escape with a portion of one of these. Then, before I knew it I was sitting on the couch eating 400-500 calories of these. Other than my obsession with these yummy treats, I have been doing well on my diet and I’ve been going to the local park almost every day to walk 3 miles. I am only up 2 lbs from my pre cruise weight in late July. Not too bad.
Today is my birthday so I am definitely going to celebrate being 35 today, well this weekend too! I might get a chocolate milkshake from Chic-Fil-A after my facial & mani-pedi today. The real diet starts Labor Day. Then I am back on track and I know not to bring anything chocolate-covered home from Trader Joe’s. Gheeez.
