Losing and Gaining
Wednesday, July 15, 2009
Can anyone tell me.....how come it is so easy to gain weight, but soooooo hard to lose it?
I can gain 5 lbs in 4 days, but it takes weeks to lose that much.
I hopped onto the scale today and well, I have gained 6 lbs since last week. Now, I know TOM is visiting and all but, I really think I gained some weight. We were away over the weekend and I ate tons of cheese and drank way too much. Alcohol contains way too many calories. As I reflect back on my choices over the weekend, they were not all that bad. I did eat way more than I would normally. Lesson learned though.
Lately it has been killer HOT here in southwest Florida. It is making it difficult for me to get my exercise in during the day. My weight bench/gym is in the garage-it has been reading 110 degrees in there...yuck! I like to walk at night because the sun is not out (still hot though) but the mosquitoes are killer....man I have tons of excuses, don't I? I am going to make a serious attempt to swim in the pool everyday. Swimming doesn't seem to do anything to drop weight for me though. I have got to get disciplined enough again to exercise in the living room early in the day. I never seem to have the privacy I like.
Well, back to the grind of working on a fabulous looking me. No one ever said this was going to be easy!
I hope you all are having a fabulous day!
