I gained 4 pounds since my last weigh in which seems kind of impossible to me and it really depressed me this morning.
I took a look at my calorie intake. I have never done this before in all my time with sparkpeople ;) I went slightly over my intake a few times and I really went over 2000 kcal two times. But then I also stayed under my intake for two or three times. I don't know if that can account for 4 pounds of gained weight :(
I shouldn't have done that weigh in today because my boyfriend and I already have plans for dinner and we're going to have muffins today and yummy pancakes (since I thought I wouldn't have gained any weight, on the contrary, I thought/hoped I had lost a pound) and now I'm scared of eating. I hate feeling like that. Being scared of eating sucks and isn't healthy at all. So I think I'm just going to try to savour today's meals and start anew tomorrow.
On the positive side:
I worked out 5 days out of 7. And I also did strenght training 4 days out of 7 (according to the january challenge I did two of coach nicoles videos).
I also think my pants fit a little better than they did in December. Maybe I'll have some positive results when I will do the measuring.
So what to do:
a. I need to track my calories better
-> (however I updated my goals today. for the last few weeks I still went with a two year old setting which was to go from 90 to 80 kg from the beginning of 2011 until christmas 2011. Now (with going from 87 to 78 by christmas 2013) my calorie range is a lot bigger and with the new setting I wasn't even over my range this week... I can't understand how I gained this much weight :(
b. no excuses for not being in range.
-> Working out doesn't count as an excuse for overeating
c. keep working out and keep doing strenght exercise
-> I'm scared because last week was hard for me. With my job my time is really restricted. I forced myself to work out more because I knew I had overeaten. But for next week I'm planing for 30 minutes of cardio and one of sparkpeoples strength videos for 4 out of 7 days.
My reward: as soon as I have some money I'm going to buy myself a new scale which can also measure body fat etc.
