frustrated with the scale!!!
Thursday, May 03, 2012
I have been working my a** off for the past 2 weeks and I have gained weight. I know, I know, muscle weighs more than fat, etc....and I have been lifting pretty heavy. I am just frustrated because now its like my 10lb weight loss goal is now 13 lbs! I feel stronger and I see differences in my arms, chest and shoulders. In the last week, I have gone on a lower carb diet, which I think will help within the next few weeks for weight loss. I know I shouldn't get frustrated but between my relentless belly fat I want to lose and seeing a higher number on the scale, I have to say I am frustrated. I am taking the necessary steps now. First, I will not look at the scale for exactly 2 weeks. So the next time I weigh in will be MAY 17th. Second, I am cooking healthy meals and bringing them to work rather than eating what is made for all of us (which is pretty much school lunch food) . I am also upping my water intake and doing SMALL but effective things to get a little more cardio in. I did a 15 min workout this morning, Im doing my 6 week to 6 pack after I write this blog, then im heading to work early so I can go for a walk before work. Im hoping these little tweaks will give me some good results within the next couple weeks,
