Two weeks ago I was sick battling a sinus infection. I was out of work more than I was in; didn't eat much and exercised even less. I did manage to drink tons of water, but that was about it. Food intake consisted mostly of chicken broth and soup. So, I was surprised when I got on the scale and lost 3 lbs in about 4 days.
Step on the scale this morning and 2.8 of those lbs are back. This past week, feeling much better, I ate like I felt better. In review of the week, I made lots of bad choices, didn't exercise anywhere near where I should have and didn't track my food. Why can't I stay faithful to tracking my food!?!? It drives me CRAZY!!
So the lesson from my week is that I slacked off and got exactly what I worked for. You know the phrase "garbage in, garbage out" doesn't just apply to computers; it applies to everything in our lives. I put garbage in my body and treated it like trash, so that's exactly what I got at the end - trashy feeling and weight gain.
Well this has certainly equipped me to do it better this coming week, starting right now! I will be tracking my food and workouts and next week that scale will go down again!
