Get back up when it knocks you down...

Accomplishment - today is day 37 in a row of working out.

Not Accomplishment - Last week I only lost 1/2 lb, this week I gained 3/4 lb.

This is hugely frustrating for me. I've been focusing on calories - I'll admit I haven't been in range at times, but I've cut out unhealthy snacks and sweets. I munch on grapes and green peppers, and have avoided the cookies and chips. I've done well with portion control, but I guess something just isn't working.

Just extremely disheartened. Trying to not let it get me down and to keep focused. I've been very stressed lately, working a lot, and searching for a new apartment (my lease is up in one week!!!!), so that might be attributing to it. Maybe I just need to relax.

    Keep your chin up, girl! Working out 37 days in a row is a HUGE accomplishment, and you should be super proud of yourself!!! Also, keep in mind that with that much exercise, you're gaining a lot of muscle, which is going to cause less of a weight loss. Don't worry so much about the scale - are you taking measurements at all? I'll bet you'd see some differences that way.

    Keep up the awesome work!
