My Body Has a Sense of Humor

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I decided this morning when I was riding my exercise bike, that my body is funny! Now, it doesn't LOOK quite as funny as it used to, but it still likes to play tricks on me, so that's why it's funny!

I've been on a plateau for a while. I even joined Spark Coach's Plateau Buster a few weeks ago. My weight has been slowly creeping it's way back up. Friday I did everything right -- or so I thought --- to lose a pound or two. Ate great, within my ranges of everything. Rode my bike like crazy for 47 minutes and walked all over the place, doing what I do best -- shopping for my granddaughters! And did I get rewarded for all this activity? HE_ _ NO! I stayed at exactly the same weight I'd been at for three days.

Yesterday my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters came down and had requested their favorite -- pizza -- for dinner. I decided yesterday was gonna be my "splurge day." Hey, my daughter weighs about 100 pounds with a brick in each pocket and eats pizza, ice cream, etc. So I cleaned house yesterday morning, showered and dutifully ordered a couple of pizzas and some cheesy bread. I had two pieces of pizza -- period. None of the cheesy bread, and none of the cake Melissa and the girls had baked and brought with them. I was within my range of calories - barely --and did not workout, so I was afraid to weigh myself this morning.

So, here's where the title of this rambling blog comes in -- I could almost hear my body laughing at me this AM as I weighed myself and had lost 1.1 lb.!!!!
What the !@##&#????

The post script to this is, if I think I've had an AHA moment and try this again today, I will gain that little ole pound back and then some tomorrow!!

But I WILL have the last laugh and eventually I WILL get down to my goal weight! Keep on Sparkin', Marsha!! Keep on Sparkin'!!

    Some times I think we have to mix it up to keep the old body guessing. People have good results with calorie cycling and I've often thought of trying it. I'm like you...I eat really good and the scale goes up a bit. When I have a splurge day, the scale goes down. Go, figure!

    I hear you loud and clear on this one. I just told Terry yesterday that I always lost better on my junk food. It seems the healthier I try to eat, the worse I do.

    Have you heard of the eating plan called "The Plan". I have seen the girl on Dr. Oz and a few shows. I looked the book over at Target Saturday. It isn't something I think I could do, but the concept makes sense. She says no matter how healthy the food, if our body chemistry fights against it, we won't lose, and most likely will gain. So she has you go on this detoxification diet for three days, then she introduces food back. I guess you know immediately if the food bothers you. It's a 20 day commitment and the foods at the beginning I don't think I would try.

    But there are times when I do so good on my eating, and I will get stomach issues etc. So I am wondering if some of the healthy foods, my body fights. It makes sense.

    I am up 11 pounds now from this time last year. Ugh! I have to get started.

    You're right - there is no rhyme or reason. "Funny" is as good an explanation as any!
