This week was the antithesis to last week. Last week I had 360 fitness minutes, burning over 4,200 calories and I gained 1.2 lbs. This week I didn't go to the gym at all, logged no fitness minutes and no calories burned and I posted a small loss. I have concluded that I must have over worked myself last week while also under feeding myself. I'm going to try to avoid doing that again!
I think next week I will return to the gym, but at a more moderate pace, mixing up my workouts a bit. I definitely need to get some strength training back into the mix (I know I've said that several times already, but I do know that I need to do it!).
The funny thing is that my eating wasn't awesome this week, I was still fairly lazy and just ate what was easy instead of taking the time to make my food and eat clean. I wasn't eating take out or anything like that, but having protein shakes instead of having food, a spoonful of peanut butter in the afternoon, etc.
So, once again, if I ever nail down my eating I'll be more successful, especially if I can couple that with a solid gym plan! But for now, I'm going to rely on what has been working and just try and make a few small changes here and there, just too many other things going on right now to make this the priority and put other things off.
Let's see the numbers for the week:
Weight : 214.6
Lost : 1.0
Total : 102.6
So with no gym time and only decent eating I was able to lose almost all of last weeks gain. Huzzah! Hopefully if I can stay relaxed (my mental mode may have also played a part in the loss this week) and eat a little better while adding in a few workouts next week will be another loss. Keeping my fingers crossed!
