Inevitably we gain weight way faster than we lose it. Many of my sparkie friends struggle with this and I am always there to encourage and support and give advice. So when I say that today's weigh in was very disappointing I feel sorta like a hypocrite. Sometimes its easier to give your advice than to take your own advice
So I was gaining a pound or two a week and now I'm losing 1/2 lb a week. (Insert Pep Talk!) Now, now...losing is losing. A half a pound is better than gaining ..or even staying the same AND if you take your measurements (huh-hum) then you have something to compare to for progress that is not just the pesky scale! Yeah some of you have heard this from me....
Today's joke at work is that I will be filing a hostile work environment claim because they won't quit bringing in food. Today's treat is Apple Danishes from Costco. Sigh. And so the teasing continues.
In analyzing my week here is what I think the problem may be.
This week = more strength training and less cardio
More strength does not equate to more calories......more cardio may justify a slightly higher calorie range (maybe an extra 100-150). Soooo. Next week I will focus on upping my cardio and really try and keep my calories tight.
We will see how that works out for me
