8 Week/ 1% Challenge - Week 3 Recap

Saturday, May 05, 2012

emoticonI am completely ...(okay, maybe not COMPLETELY)...devastated by my scale this week.

I thought I was doing so well. I have been religious about following the bootcamp video workouts, getting 40 minutes of cardio daily, going to the gym, and making good food choices. I cut out nighttime snacking, too! So how did I manage to gain 1 pound this week?? I was expecting at least a 2 pound loss.

There must be a reason, though, for the life of me I can not figure it out. I am going to continue in the direction I had laid out and hope that this was a fluke. However, I will add to my routine, journaling. We've all heard it said many times that people who log their food and journal regularly tend have more success. From past personal experience, I can honestly say that I did better when I wrote EVERYTHING down.

Next week, I want to see the scale numbers in retreat!

    ((hugs)) I know how that feels. I have the metabolism of a slug. :(

    I strongly encourage the logging and measuring of all foods. It helps me stay on track. :)
