Gained 700 grams - Confused

Monday, November 12, 2012

Good morning

So despite my resolutions last week, it seemed nothing worked.

* I added some meal replacements (of different brands) to try and control my calorie intake.
* I worked out more.
* Logged more
* Increased my calorie intake on some days

Notes:
* I seemed a little obsessive
* Constipated
* Sometimes tired as if I did not eat enough

Result = weigh in = + 700 grams

CONFUSED

Dietitian says : "I should not exercise too much "

Even more confused.

Now :
* I enjoy exercising, I feel amazing
* I love what my body can do
* My fat % went down and muscle mass up

This week :

* NO more meal replacements !!! I like simple food : salads and oats for breakfast
* Portion control ( very challenging)
* Spaced out exercise : Sunday and monday - tuesday Rest - Wednesday- Thrusday (rest) - Friday (run) etc..

Guys I am so confused. I am just noting these down BUT I really do not know what happened last week.

I hope you have a better monday than me.

xoxo

    Dear all

    Again thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my post.
    I went for my first morning run before work this morning. I only lasted 20 mins but I am so pumped for the day. I will give my body a bit of time to adjust for sure. Thanks for that suggestion. Hopefully in time things will get better. Also I try to repeat in my head that the scale is just a number. It is important to me in the long run but for now I am a work in progress.

    This morning I asked myself: why did I ever stop exercising ? It is such a great way to connect body, mind and just boost some positiveness.

    Have a great day everyone.
    A billion thanks
    xoxo

    If my math is correct, 700 grams is about 1.5 pounds...the body is a machine with a lot of working parts that takes a lot into account to do what it does. More likely than not, you're not doing anything that needs correcting, as @X5X52000 stated, you need to give your body time to adjust to changes. Take note that there is such a thing as too much exercising, but I'd give it more time before deciding to make another change. Hang in there! emoticon

    You have to give a new routine some time to get your body to adjust. emoticon emoticon

    Take it one day at a time - sometimes you will "gain" a bit...but once your body gets used to the new routine, you will see losses more. Don't give up on the exercises, especially since you are enjoying them. Remember, it's only a number on that scale...the important thing is how you are feeling! Pay attention to your body!!
