Week 5 Summary
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
There is no way that I have gained 6 pounds since yesterday. The scale is not always correct. One day of going over calories this week will not destroy my week of hard work. Weighing in after dancing a lot, knee is swollen, hands puffy, ate a late night snack because I burned off a lot of calories yesterday and needed something, and then didn't get a lot of sleep because I got to bed late and still had to go to work today. But, I still weighed even though I knew it was not the ideal circumstances. I know that those 6 pounds aren't "real" weight. I know that my jeans are looser yet and I am still feeling better. So, my weigh-in next week will be even better :)
I learned this week that you can come back rather quickly from what could be a disaster. That felt phenomenal! I am continuing to use my SparkTracker. I like that it tracks my steps even if it isn't the most accurate thing about tracking what is actually my walking workouts. Therefore, it doesn't track properly how many calories I burned during those workouts so it appears that I have less available than I do. But, if I track the rest of the workout, it warps my fitness minute totals, which feels dishonest. So, I just know in my head that I have more calories and don't feel bad when I go over on those days, which I usually don't anyway. I'm still learning :)
Have a great day!
