Maintaining maintenance mode

I'm up a little this week and now weigh exactly what I did at the end of May before vacation. So I guess I didn't start the downward slide again this week. The very good news is that I'm still maintaining the big loss. But I don't think I'm going to make a big dent in the next phase before Burning Man.

This week has been insane at work. A couple of new clients and old ones all needing immediate help. I've been very very stressed. Add to that some uncertainty about how I'm getting to Burning Man (DB and a friend of ours are going early this year) and lots of pre-BM work (sorting, counting, packing supplies, clothes, etc.) and I am pretty pooped this Friday.

I did manage my usual number of workouts and they were good. I was also generally good with food, but overdid a bit on drinking...again. :-( Back on the wagon next week since DB leaves tomorrow for his week in Nearby Town with his mom.

I'm feeling pretty darn blah today and not feeling much like blogging, but had to do it to remain accountable...I think I'm going to weigh in again tomorrow too...I hadn't gone to the bathroom this morning so maybe, just maybe, the "up" is less than it said on Ms. Scale this morning. We'll see...

Gotta get back to work...wishing everyone a great weekend...

have a good weekend yourself.

how is DB's mom doing "on her own" (I realize someone is always staying with her) - I can't remember her healthy/mental status - ?

Now, cut that out! :-) Why don't you just concentrate (like you have) on the things you're doing like the food and the exercise and just look at the scale as a snapshot, not the end result?

I'm so happy you are going to BM with your toes intact.

Getting caught up after vacation.. still musing about the burning man deal. I think I had a dream about it, too. keeping your big loss off is great. There is huge value in maintenance. I think you are doing great..
