Day 107 - Heat Wave!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

It is incredibly hot this morning! My husband called me at 7 am from his work saying that he forgot to put our broken TV out curbside. I needed to do it. So in my pjs and gym shoes, I lugged this monster out. It was dang hot outside!

I came inside and got ready for my morning walk but had my cereal and coffee first. I was still so tired. My youngest son woke up early too. I ended up driving him the half mile to the gym for his workout. Came home and walked my first mile. Had to come indoors to cool down. Just as I was ready to go out for another mile, my son called for me to go get him.

After picking him up, I walked two more miles. After each mile I came inside for water and a short cool down.

Now the most frustrating part... I got on the scale before I ate and weighed 189.6. Then I had a small cup of cereal with milk and a cup of coffee. Walked three miles and sweated a lot! Definitely a lot more than what I was drinking between my mini breaks! Then I weighed myself again and the scale showed 189.8! Usually when I do the double weigh-ins, I lose at least .6 pounds.

I am thinking that I am retaining more water than I think (my salt intake increased recently) and that TOM is arriving soon. So frustrating! I also think I am still in the plateau from last month. I looked at my last month's worth of weigh-ins and I barely lost 3 lbs with my lowest at 189.0. I have been very good with my calorie ranges, especially when I am walking lots of miles! Sunday and Monday I walked 6 miles and today I walked, yeah...I am in a plateau. It's got to be! Sigh............

Still waiting word on my interview....

    The heat makes my weight go up quite significantly actually!

    Try not to be too frustrated, it's a very small change! You are doing great work!!

    It is just salt retention and TOM...keep doing what you are doing it will all come off again after TOM....I am in the same boat....TOM starts this Friday....I am avoiding the scale until it is over....these last 4 months have taught me that much at worrying when you are retaining water and cannot do a thing about it.....
