What Happened?

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

Hi Spark Friends! Happy Wednesday! Just think - this time next week we will be working on the last day of our work week getting ready for the holiday! Woohoo!

So I got on the scale this morning and I am UP TWO POUNDS! Some time in the last week I gained two pounds and I don't know how. I have been watching what I eat, exercising like normal, etc. Nothing has changed, so I don't know what happened. This is the first time I have had to adjust my weight UP in SP and it doesn't feel good!

I guess I could let this get me down but I am not going to let it. I have an interview later today and I am pretty excited about it. I have the chance to work for Pier I in Fort Worth making about $13K more per year and the benefits are much better than my current job! I wasn't even looking for a job, the Talent Acquisition Manager is a lady I used to work with at another company and she emailed me when this job came available. I think this gives me an advantage. Wish me luck!

    In terms of the emoticon from the scale, it could mean you are retaining fluid, had too much sodium the day before, or that your body is now used to the # of calories, and the amount of exercise and it better at conserving calories for future energy expenditures.
You might want to change the intensity of your work outs. It might help. emoticon

    Good luck on the interview! I've had that happen too, and I guess it just happens from time to time during the month. Probably more to do with being a female than anything else :)
