Week Three - Slight Snag but still Running!
Saturday, July 18, 2009
I had a little disappointment this morning. I gained 3 pounds! I know it's from exercising. As I look back at last year - when I started taking the classes at the Rec Center I gained some weight. Eventually I got frustrated with the gain and started eating badly -- and really gained some weight. It must be my body retaining fluids to mend my tired old joints.
So what's the answer?! I lose more when I don't exercise, however, I don't look or feel as good when I don't exercise. Do I continue at the pace I am and wait till my joints get used to it and lets go of the fluids? or Do I cut down on the amount of exercise and see if that makes a difference? All I've done is WATP in the mornings; most days were 2 mile walks and a 3 mile walk on Friday. I want to add MORE exercise and tone up some of this flab!
I feel like I should continue and not worry about the scale. But I would really like for the scale to move too. UGH!! Ideas?!
