Keeping my calories within range is increasingly easier as the days tick by, I am back into a groove with the intake and now its time to get the exercise back up to par. Riding on my trainer has been sketchy at best as I have had a cold for about 2 weeks, actually its two colds with a 2 day break in between them and riding the trainer is not fun with a stuffed up head so I have been passing on it lately. We got about 5 inches of snow on Sunday and we did make it out for a walk with the kids which was nice and at least it was movement vs hanging out in the house for the day and I'll take that any day of the week!

My weight is doing something odd, what I mean is that I am up in weight from Friday which I can't understand, I mean I know there is fluctuation but there is no reason for it. I am eating perfectly, exercise is lacking but that has been the case since about Christmas with me riding the trainer only a handful of times and I had been dropping since then. I am not too worried about it as I have been here before while losing weight but that doesn't make it any less frustrating to see a plus on the scale in the morning, it is what it is I suppose. Friday will let me know how I did for the week as I don;t usually dwell on the number that I se eon the scale, I try and focus on the over all results because I do have a long way to go and letting fluctuations bother me would prove a losing battle and ultimately hurt the forward momentum.

On bike related news, The hardware for the Pletscher rack that I am going to put on that Motobecane that I am working on came in the mail yesterday so I will do a test fit later tonight with the rack. I did get down stairs for about 30 minutes worth of polishing on the crankset on that bike but its far from done so I didn't take any pictures of what I did for now.

Over all everything is on track and moving right along and I can't ask for more than that, the weather will be warm soon and back out on that trail I will go...... can't wait.

That's all I got for today kids.

    I had the same problem with a small gain....weigh-in, I was down 2 but the next AM I was up .6 (I know that doesn't sound like much, but when your down to the last 20 it's frustration!) I ate properly, didn't make the gym, but I did exercise..I guess what I did wasn't enough....Can't worry about it now, I'll just keep pluggin' away! emoticon

    I see the juju is coming back!! hehe Hopefully more posts too!

    I am doing ok. I got back in my groove around September when I started working days like normal folk, but then I was pushed up to the early mornings, 6am-2:30pm (my request anyway) and I got a little fuzzy. But things were great until Thanksgiving lol I maintained all the way till the new year, still kind maintaining while I get myself together. But feeling good to be cooking and all that jazz. Plus the BF never stopped, so he looks great. We got to match lol I got to get it back lol

    Talk to you soon! Keep it up, you & the misses!!

    I have gained weight in the last week and it is the most active I have been in years, not to mention I have been logging almost every bit of food I eat.

    Water weight can be tricky sometimes...depending on sodium & stuff.

    Keep up with the green tea and water like I know you do and I'm sure whatever it is will straighten out shortly!

    Sorry you've been sick. I've got a cold too and felt awful yesterday from being up the night before coughing, so I didn't work out yesterday. I am hoping I'll feel like doing something later. I feel like once a week or so of tracking goes by it gets easier and easier. I hate when my weight is suddenly up a pound or something when I know that I did not overeat. I have this problem every month, you know, woman issues. :) Continue to have a great week!

    I know what you mean! It is very frustrating to see a plus on the scale. I was seeing this quite often a few weeks back. Make sure you are taking in enough water and that your sodium levels are under control. I know when I don't constantly watch these two, I will gain. Good Luck!

    Also - depending on whether you are taking certain cold medicines - even over the counter - they can add unwanted sugar sometimes.

    IF you're sick, your body is going to be doing things to cure itself. So, holding water b/c of extra white cells made to fight the virus will occur. Keep looking at the overall picture and do what you can-you're doing a great job!
