Oh scale -- why do you hate me so?
Tuesday, July 30, 2013
I knew it!! The minute I decide to change my routine, my scale rebels and tells me I've gained 3 pounds.
There is no way on earth I've gained three pounds -- I have maintained at least at 2500 calorie deficit for the last 3 weeks, and over a 3500 for the weeks before that. It has to be water or something, but it's extremely frustrating because I was a half a pound away from my nest present to myself, and now it's looking like I wont' get that present for .. well, who knows! :(
I'm not hung up on a number, really, but it's just frustrating. I have usually either stayed in one spot or leaped forward a couple of pounds down each week, but the scale hasn't regressed this much -- ever ! Grrr.
In any case ...
Last night I got on my exercise bike and pedaled hard for half an hour, rather than take my usual hour-plus walk. I missed being outside, but it was nice to have a shorter workout.
This whole week is going to be cray-cray, as I have a hair appointment and teach two classes, tonight, so I don't even know when I'm going to be able to run. Sigh. I should have run YESTERDAY, while I was thinking about it. Saturday I'm going with my mom to a wedding, but I can run after that, or on Sunday I guess. I am this close to the 5K, so I'm not screwing it up.
The 15k is in a month, and then in another month the half marathon. ! I have three weddings to dance at in August, Sep, and Oct., a big show in October, a medium one in September, our student show in November (which I still have to teach them the cane dance for) and somehow in all of this craziness I'm supposed to be studying for the ACE test. Sigh....
My goal for 2014 is that it's not so busy. Or at least not so crazy busy.
