Weigh In Wednesday ::: Hope

Well, it's that day of the week again...it's usually a day that I look forward to.
Not this week.
Yesterday I just kept praying for a few more days before weigh in. I knew it wasn't going to be good. I knew this because I was only able to get to the gym twice this past week {eek!}
This weekend was our Confirmation Retreat, so I was running around last week getting everything together. Thankfully the retreat was at a gorgeous camp that had hiking trails, so my awesome friend T and I hiked and did our squats for the squat challenge.
I walked everywhere.
 I also ate REALLY good--and I'm not talking salads and veggies.
They have the best food there.
I did watch my portions and I tried not to snack, but there were these
amazing little oatmeal raisin cookies, and well, you get the idea...
 
When I got home, Carl was leaving for a business trip, so last night was my only time to get to the gym. I know that it sounds like lots of excuses, but this was a huge weekend for me and I had to be completely focused on what I was doing. It turned out to be one of the best retreats we've done!
I am so blessed by the teens and adults I work with!
 
But Carl comes home today, and then it's back to focusing on this journey!
I am VERY proud of myself that even though I wasn't completely focused this week, I was still committed to exercising during the retreat and
I still made better food choices than I would have ever before!
It's a way of life and I think I have proved to myself that I'm committed to it,
so I feel AWESOME about that!
 
Now comes the part where I have to tell you what the scale said this morning...
 
Remember those 2 lbs. I lost last week?
Well, they're back. :(
But I am determined to get rid of them {again} this week.
For good.
 
{not the best angle AT ALL, but here I am in God's beautiful creation}
