Day 8... Week 1 Reflections
Saturday, January 08, 2011
I must admit, I am a little disappointed... I weighed in this morning and am only down 1 pound. It seems like such a lot of hard work for such a little movement on the scale. But then I think about what may be going on in my body and that does help a little.
1) I may be retaining some water. My body is probably not used to the amount I am drinking yet plus I had a really salty meal last night.
2) I may be building some muscle. Since I just incorporated strength training into my routine that may account for things.
3) I did pretty good on calories this week but did blow it 2 days. We all know it takes a deficit of 3500 calories to lose 1 pound so perhaps those 2 days bumped my calories up just enough to not lose more.
All in all I should be glad for a downward trend on my scale.
I did do my exercise this morning. There was the moment of absolute exhilaration in which I was so pumped up. I love the natural high that exercise can give. I am doing something wonderful for myself and my body. It thanked me!
Now I am off to reward myself for my hard work this week and get myself a massage.
New year... New ME!
