I gained a pound this week!!!
I'm trying not to get discouraged but I know there is NO CHANCE I am eating too much. I measure everything and make a point of eating whole foods so there are no hidden calories. I work out a minimum of two hours each day. Almost all days I do 45 minutes elliptical and one hour of lap swimming. I also mix in yoga class 2x per week, strength training 45 minutes 2x per week, leisurely biking an hour every Saturday and Sunday and brisk walking an hour Friday, Saturday, and Sundays with our dog. Sometimes I kayak for an hour or two on weekends the weather is nice. Again, this is a leisure activity...I'm not rowing competitively. LOL.
I upped my calories a month ago because I wasn't losing (probably due to my activity burn level) and then lost each week until this week. :-( I eat 1500-1600 calories minimum a day with 1-2 days up to 1900. Most days I am "spot on" the recommended ratio of carbs/fat/protein but some days my protein number is higher (like 30%) and my carbs/fat numbers are a bit lower.
I took the time yesterday to measure all my body parts with a measuring tape so, if this happens again, I can measure again and hopefully find I lost inches so I won't be discouraged. I have such a looooong way to go that it is very discouraging to gain when I'm working so hard.
What am I doing wrong?!?
Is it tomorrow already?
