Week Nine Recap

Well, that was rough.

Rough, but fun. The Vegas trip was a doozy, as far as eating was concerned. That's basically all we did. Traveling there with a kid makes for a much different trip. The time was mostly spent lingering over meals with family.

After we got back home, I rebounded a little bit, as expected. Then, we hosted a party at home that had me throw all caution out the door. That too was fun.

But now, it's time to pay the piper. After eight straight weeks of weight loss, I gave back almost half of it in a few days. I guess it would have been unreasonable to expect the streak to keep going unabated. Anyway, here we are. Strictly speaking, I need to lose about five pounds by next Sunday. I'm really not sure if that's possible, but I'll have to try. On the other hand, my seven-day-average weight is about two pounds less than where I am now. So, that would mean only dropping three pounds below the expected mean. That would be doable.

I think this will have to be another sprint week. I'll do a weekly plan tomorrow to see if it's possible based on my calendar.
