I want to kill my scale...
Wednesday, September 16, 2009
Okay, so as some of you may know, my wife & I have a set schedule every night. We put the kids to bed, step on the scale to see where we are at (tonight I was 200 pounds, shouldn't have had the onion rings at dinner...but I couldn't resist), then we head out for our nightly walk (thank God for my mother-in-law to watch the girls).
We walk for 75 minutes, depending on how we feel, sometimes we do 90 minutes. Here lately, since we've gone out & bought nice new "athletic" shoes, we have started to do little jogs on our walk. We pick markers, say from this mail box to the street light, and jog that distance. It works out to walking 50-60 minutes and jogging 15-30 minutes each night.
I am doing the same thing I have been doing, but I'm getting no results. Tonight I stepped on the scale before bed (I didn't eat anything after our walk, just cooled down, watched TV and drank four glasses of water) and I was 201 pounds!
WTF?!?!?!?! I am SO aggravated right now! I hope my number in the morning is 196 pounds (or below) because I am getting so FRUSTRATED! I haven't lost anything in over week. I went up to 198 pounds, then yesterday I lost that extra pound and was 197 pounds again. Now who knows? I need to change something up quick...
