When the scale is the enemy.. :)

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

During the holidays, I gave into temptation and due to being out of town, off my program. When I got home, I was ok with the modest gain of a couple pounds, knowing it was a once-a-year treat and committed to getting right back with my healthier lifestyle and goals. I have done very well with regard to eating and working out, even better than before the holidays. My clothes were even baggier yesterday, so although it wasn't quite my "weigh-in" day, I cheated and took a sneak peek. I was right where I expected to be, almost 2 lbs down from the previous week. This morning was my usual "official" weigh-in... and it shows a 5 lb gain from yesterday! lol :) Which would be more than I weighed when I came back from the holidays too! Now, I know there are lots of explanations: a high sodium day (guilty), more strenuous activity than "usual" (guilty), hormones, etc.. and I know I'm eating in my ranges with good, healthy, home-cooked food, no goody snacks, and working out consistently with increased intensity. I feel better each day and my clothes tell the true tale, but still it's frustrating when the scale doesn't agree lol :) I am thankful I'm a cheater, or I would have been super bummed to see the "gain" alone without knowing yesterday it was right where I would expect it to be. What did I do? I grabbed a bottle of water and worked out. I'm going to keep on with what I'm doing and see what the next weigh in says... :)
