Weight Fluctuations, Oh My!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Hello Sparkers!

Inspirational thought of the day: This ad by Nike.



I ate well and stayed within my range. I've been trying to find some new ways of reducing calories all the while eating the same quantity of food - so that I can feel full and satisfied. So, I bought this yogurt, which is only 35 calories per 100g.

It was ok, but I can taste the sweetener they used and it doesn't appeal to me. I heard the regular (not 0%) was really good so I might try that one.

Last night's dinner? I was trying to mix things up (a bit) so I cooked whole wheat couscous with carrots & zucchini and chicken breast with some sweet chili sauce drizzled on top. It was really good and very low-cal. I know you can't tell in the picture but this is a small lunch plate.

It was delicious... Mmmm.....

Went to the gym after work and had a great chest/triceps workout. As I often do, I went to the mall during lunch so I got in a good 15-20 minutes of walking at a fast pace. The mall was surprisingly busy for a Monday afternoon. It put me in a great Christmas mood and I might even put up the Christmas tree tonight.

Still struggling because of my loss of sleep over the weekend. I went to see a movie last night and so I only got to bed around 11pm. I hit the snooze button once this morning but I felt guilty. I need to start embracing the wake-up feeling because, you know, I'll have to wake up early five days a week probably for the rest of my career.

Yesterday I complained about a 2 lb increase. Well, I apparently dropped that 2lbs within 24 hours because I was back down to 200lbs this morning. These fluctuations can lead to discouragement if it weren't for tracking my food/exercise. Because I track, I know when the scale is reflecting something inaccurate. I am grateful yesterday's weigh-in didn't affect my efforts because it obviously was off the mark.

So, 1 lb to go before reaching my first goal!

Have a great day Sparkers!

    Sounds like a good day to me! And your dinner looks awesome. I am trying to figure out my own weight fluctuations. I had been weighing every day for accountability, but it makes it hard to say how much you've really lost. Really I think that what has happened to me is the beginning of a plateau... I have been going up and down by a couple of pounds for the last week or so. It is very aggravating.

    Fluctuations can be tough. That is why everyone suggests not weighing everyday. I still do though. Helps me see what the result is from staying on track... or not.. LOL
