Wednesday Reflection

What is your weight today – the exact number not just how much you lost? :) UGH!!!! 180.0

Did you lose, gain, or maintain? Why?
I did really well this week and thought I would maintain, then the clues came and I realized TOM should be visiting today or tomorrow. I am really frustrated. I never used to gain with TOM until I lost most of my weight. Now, I seem to gain no matter what I do. I try avoiding sodium, drinking extra water, exercising more and stay really focused on eating healthy foods, yet I still seem to gain a day or two before TOM arrives. I hate using that as an excuse for a gain, but I really do not have any other explanation.

Are you ready for BOOT CAMP??? And ADMIRAL FRISKY120276????
YES, YES, YES DEFINITELY!!! I need the extra push to get back into a good routine. I have been really slacking with the move. To be completely honest, I would rather cuddle with my bf when he gets home from work instead of workout. He works 8pm to 8am three days a week and has night classes three nights a week. My plan is to start getting up an hour before he is due home to get my workout in, be showered and dressed before he gets home. Then I will be more apt to stay up. I have been working on getting up earlier. My schedule is just so off that it's going to take time. Goal: by next MONDAY, I will be up at 7am.

    Nice reflection, Jessica! I also didn't have TOM gain when I was at my high weight. Really it makes sense because you're already retaining excess fluid when you're routinely eating unhealthy foods in large portions. Thus explains the really large drop we see when we first get on track and clean our systems out. But you've been eating clean for a long time, so you do notice the hormone-influenced fluid retention.

    Keep up the good work!
