Cranky about my weight loss this week

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I suppose that's a misleading blog title since I didn't actually have a weight loss this week. I had a weight GAIN. Last Wed I was at 208 and today I am at 208.5.

I think the reasons for the weight gain are:

1. Eating Easter candy (1,000 extra calories)
2. Having a huge meal last Wednesday for lunch (work offsite thing) (1,000 extra calories)
3. Not exercising as much as I could have
4. Doing a lot of ST which supposedly makes you retain water

I am going to make the following changes this week to try to resolve these problems:

1. Be super careful about what I eat and stick to the lower to middle range of my calories.
2. Exercise 60 minutes per day.
3. Make sure that I have lots of fresh vegetables and fruit readily available.
4. Continue to drink tons of water.

I just feel so blah at having gained when I feel like I am working so hard, but upon further examination, I see there are areas where I could improve and I am going to focus on them.

    Owning what you could have done better and moving forward with a new focus is the first step, and you've done that!

    Don't feel blah! .5 pounds could be from anything! Use what you know to make the coming week even better! Keep at the ST...while it will cause temporary fluctuations due to muscles repairing, it also strengthens those large muscle groups which are vital to boosting metabolism!

    Stay strong, stay focused... emoticon
