Just another manic Monday?

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Okay. I know. It's really cheesey. But I HAD to after the day I had yesterday! I used the weekend to get things done and enjoy the weather and go hiking. I don't regret it a bit! But, usually I at least do SOME work over the weekend, so I started Monday behind and stressed to catch up.

Then, I realized I was supposed to bake a few dozen cookies for my bf's boss's going away party. So that's what I was doing at 11:00 last night! Woohoo! But, with all of that, I think I had a pretty good day nutritionally!

Bear Naked Fit Almond Crisp Cereal with 1/2 c. 2% milk (so tasty & filling!)

My typical coffee drink!

Peppered Turkey sandwich on plain ol' white bread
Cucumber Salad (1 cucumber, 2 green onions, 1 tbsp feta chopped up, vinaigrette)
1 Clementine

Blackened Chicken Breast (3 oz breast seasoned, used a little nonstick spray)
White Fiber pasta with alfredo

Evening Snack:

Combine that with my 2 miles on the treadmill and the circuit room, and I was feelin pretty stoked!

However, I've been rather grumpy lately with my lack of weight loss. Yesterday's totals brought me to a deficit of 1200 calories (something like 1300 consumed, 300 burned, and a BMR of 2200). I've been in that general range consistently, so I SHOULD be losing weight!

So for kicks, I hopped on the scale last night to check my body fat percentage. First, it wouldn't DO its body fat measurements. So I turned it over to check to see if there were any instructions to reset it. There weren't. I flipped it back & tried again, this time it would go. Now, I know the scale isn't going to be very accurate because of the way it does measurements, but it jumped my body fat by 10% since the last time I took it. That seems a LITTLE crazy. Also way out of whack is that between the first time I hopped on & this second time about a minute later... I apparently gained 4 pounds.

Today I hopped on & it's reading higher numbers than I would expect as well. I'm going to look into exchanging it because it doesn't seem like things are quite right. I tried moving it to a different room. I dunno. Makes me grumpy & being stressed out isn't helping things dammit!

    I know exactly how you feel!!! Why is it that the scale can at times be your best friend and your arch-nemesis? lol Sometimes, I want to hug the thing and other times, I want to throw the damn thing out the window. lol

It's important to remember that it's just a number. It can't tell you that your old cloths are fitting looser or that your butt looks good in those jeans. lol

Definitely get a new scale, because you're going to want accurate readings, but also don't let the number get to you. You're awesome! You know you're awesome!!! To hell with what the scale says!
