Ok, so, I didn't come up with this fancy button, but I did find a few other people doing a Weigh-in Wednesday feature, so I thought I'd just tag along!

Well, well. That isn't exactly what I wanted to see, but I can't say that I didn't expect it. While I did well and worked out three times during the week, I also ate hellaciously over the weekend. French fries, not one but two cupcakes, a few slices of king cake, and pizza. Not my finest weekend. I'm learning that diet and exercise go hand in hand, and if I cheat, I better be prepared to face the consequences.
But, I haven't completely fallen off of the wagon. Today is the official start of Lent. I'm not sure exactly how I can explain this, but I am basically giving up "cheat" meals during Lent. I am still doing well with tracking my food, so I am making a plan to stick within the allowable calories each day. And I am going to try to make it to where on days that I don't have class I do some form of physical activity, even if it is just walking the pups. That bring my activity schedule from three to five days. A lofty goal, but I am going to try. The real test will be when we get to Ecuador. I probably won't have access to reliable internet to track my calories in my online journal, so I need to take the time until then to really learn what I am putting in my body so I can make healthy choices while I am away.
