my disappointment means I need to evaluate what I am doing

Utter disappointment so time to examine some things.
Last week I did end up jumping on the scales...I convinced myself that I needed a real marker for a starting place.
I weighted myself today and I am up 5 pounds.
So I have failed....again. time to figure out what I can do to improve!!!
In the last month I have eliminated pop, chips, white flour, ice cream in the house. I have watched portion sizes. I have started chewing gum when I want to nibble when I am in the kitchen.
On the weekend I did drink more juice than normal as we were away. I also had a hot chocolate at the arena. I will watch the liquid intake this week. For the most part I just drink water but on the weekend the water was horrible where we were staying.
I need to get more active and my house needs some works so I am thinking I will clean the house tonight. Maybe I can convince my husband to go for a walk at the beach when we go to town tomorrow.
I have to admit I have only included protein with my breakfasts half the days. So I should work on that.
my stress level has been very high for the last three or four years. I need to work on that. I tried yoga but all I could think about was that my stomach was in the way and my fear of farting during downward dog. Am I the only person on the planet who doesn't think yoga is relaxing. I also do not enjoy massage.
So the plan for the next week is to increase my activity and watch my liquid intake.
Hopefully I will see some progress.
