So Summer has finally arrived, according to the calendar. Here in central California we were in the high 90's a few weeks ago so I don't usually base what season it is on the calendar. We have strange weather sometimes, we went from high 90's a few weeks ago to high 70's for a week and we are now getting into the high 80's - low 90's. But shortly it will be high 90's to 100+ each and every day. :(
Anyway, I have had a so- so week. Had my friends funeral on Wednesday and there were close to 300 people in attendance, it was standing room only, literally. There were several motorcycle clubs in attendance, including a small group of Hells Angels. It was quite a diverse crowd to say the least.
Most of you that have known me for a while know what my diet protocol is. Sunday through Friday I try to be a choir boy... being as good as I can be. Saturday morning is my weekly weigh in and then my son and I go have lunch which usually consists of pizza and a pepsi. Saturday is my "free day" to have what I want to have without guilt. I have done things this way for over 2 years and it has worked for me. But this week was weird, statistically weird. After last week's weigh in of 210.0 I had my free day. On Sunday morning my weight was 213.8 (3.8 lb gain from free day activities), Monday morning my weight was 212.4, Tuesday morning I was 211.6. So each day I was getting closer to my Saturday weight and closer to going below that weight to post another loss this week.
That's when it got weird. My morning weight on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and again this morning were all 211.6! I weighed the exact same weight for 5 days straight! I ate different foods each day, my calorie count was different each day... it seems like a one in a million thing to have happen. I even moved my scale around all over the bathroom this morning, weighed myself probably 20 times, 211.6 each time!
So that's how my week went, very strangely. Let's take an official look at the numbers.
Weight : 211.6
Gain : 1.6
Total : 105.6
So yeah, I gained 1.6 lbs this week. I'm a little bummed about that but it's not going to ruin my weekend. I'm more astounded by the fact that I hit the same number 5 days in a row, yet I can't even win $5 when I play the lottery!!!
I hope you all have a great weekend! Sorry about all the rambling today :)
