I finally broke

my 261 plateau! I weighed 259 the last two days, bringing my total weightloss to 23.1 lbs. Yay! However, I probably just ruined that tonight. I finished off my day at 1658 calories. Boooooo! What got me was the Dunkin Donuts someone brought in. I tried to resist. I truley did, but then I got tired and bored and I began hearing the call of the beast. "Eaaaaat meeeeee" they called from the breakroom. Nasty little devils. I ended up eating 2. Yes 2! Why couldn't I have stopped at 1? I don't know. So after I ate them, I went to my calorie counter and learned the extent of the damage. 700 Calories for those 2 donuts. Yep, 700. Anyway, all I can do is move on.

Saturday morning, Mike and I will be participating in a walk for MS. We learned that it happens to be starting right across the street from our house. How conveinient. I'm not sure how long it is, but I read on their website that they typically have a short and a long walk. The short is 2-4 miles and the long is 4-6 miles. I don't know which one we'll do, but I'm thinking 4-6 miles is a little much for me at this point. I'm a little disappointed that I won't be getting a t-shirt to remember this walk by but you have to donate $100 to get one. Isn't that crazy? I plan on donating, but not quite $100.

Saturday afternoon, we are going to a beer fest, lol! I've never been to such a thing, but I thought it would be fun. My husband likes weird, dark beers so we're gonna check it out. I guess you pay about $10 to get in, and they give you a cup and you go around sampling all kinds of beers from around the world. Like a wine tasting, but with a little redneck added lol!

So, I'm still struggling to get a structured exercise regiman going but a few days ago Mike and I took the dogs on a 1.5 mile walk around our neighborhood. I got this really cool app on my phone that tracks you via GPS and tells you how far you've gone, how many mins you've walked and how many calories you've burned. It even tracks your path on a google map. It's awesome. Technology these days.

I started to get my summer tan on. Being tan makes me feel thinner, isn't that weird. I guess it just tones down those glaring white fat rolls, lmao! Brown fat rolls are much more soothing :P

That's all for now, I'll try and take some pics of this weekend's festivities. Ciao!

Way to go, Ashli!! Keep up the great work! And we're all going to have moments when for a moment, whatever it is does taste better than being thin feels. I've never been much of a potato chip person but lately BBQ ones have been my worst temptation and I've caved too. today's a new day with new choices!

I hear you on the tan and I agree. I feel better with one though I know they are horrible for our skin. Are you coming to the BOOBS convention in Chicago? You must - we all want to meet you!

I totally feel better tan!!

WTG with your weight loss, you're doing great!!

Congrats on breaking your plateau! Don't worry about the doughnuts. You have to treat yourself every now and then. When I have a treat I always plan how many calories I need to burn when I exercise to make up for my "treats". The nice thing about the band is that when you get to a good restriction level, you won't be able to eat two doughnuts. You'll eat one and be stuffed and satisfied!

Have fun on your walk.
