Okay, this is going to be one of those "graph" days that I blogged about the last time. I started off the day with a major disappointment: Showed no change at 219. Normally, I'd say it was okay since "at least I didn't gain" but here's the thing: I weighed in at 217 yesterday! VERY FRUSTRATED because after being careful yesterday I thought I would at least maintain or show a little improvement today. To see 219 made me yell out loud! *sigh* Here's what I'm going to do to "tweak" this week:
-Start tracking my food again. I seriously got away from that in the last several weeks. I think I'm taking in more calories than I think I am because I'm trying to "guesstimate". This clearly does not work for me.
-I've given up white flour, white sugar and white rice for Lent. I think I over compensated with sodium (in the form of seasonings to make meat taste better). Gotta watch the salt!
-Some of my weight gain may be attributed to doing resistance training. I don't want to give that up though so I'll live with the "slow" progress. (And even if it has nothing to do with it, this helps me feel better. *g*)
-I'm TERRIBLE with my consistency in the water department. I will DEFINITELY make a more concentrated effort there!
-I'm going to make my nutrition and exercise tracker public. It'll help my accountability.
