Not a good weekend.  I got in two exercise classes, the water fitness at the Y and Zumba class at Pulse (wish I could go every day!).  Didn't get much else in because I got hooked reading the Hunger Games Trilogy. Just couldn't put it down!  I should try to find a comfortable way to read and do a treadmill or something at the same time. Easy for me to do with a paper book but with the Kindle, I just haven't figured it out.

Diet took a major tumble. Some really upsetting drama yesterday and me being an emotional eater, I crashed and gave in.  No exercise either yesterday.

When I took my son the ER and stopped at McDs.  I ate a bacon & cheese Angus burger without the bun and condiments but it's quite a few "not good" calories.  For dinner I ate a Superburger but I did scrape off some of the sauce and didn't eat the middle piece of bread, had about 10 french fires and probably about 6 Do-Si-Do peanut butter cookies later. 

At least this is all I ate all day so I guess I can take some solace in that. I really have to come up with a way to handle the emotional eating.  I'm much better now unless it's something that's "major" then I'm wallowing in calories.

Today again will be difficult but better than yesterday.  I have to find a way to get through it without adding further damage to my diet. I really want to get fit and be at a normal weight by fall.  My goal of 50-60 pounds over the contest period should get me far.

Just another bump in the road but I'm picking myself up and dusting myself off.
