Ok, let's try this again...

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Life has been insane. Work is nuts (20+ OT hours a week), trying to get things done on Mom's estate, two family trips with DBF, appendectomy and the resulting need for recovery... The scale is up, and so is my frustration level.

Eating 1600 cals is too much for me right now, I think. I wish that agreeing with the logic behind a diet/exercise plan was enough to make it work, but my body is telling me that while it makes great sense in my head to eat more to keep my body from burning muscle along w/ fat as fuel, in practice it doesn't seem to work, at least not for me at this point. Maybe after I lose some of what I've gained in recent months, I can revisit that.

For right now, I am bringing myself back to 1400/day, and seeing how that works out in WW Momentum points. If I stay with my ratios of 40/30/30 (carbs/fat/prot), this has me at about 26 points/day. I think with WPAs and all the APs I earn during the week, that may work out.

I'm doing my best not to panic, but I hate being up over 130 again. I have gained 10lbs since April!!! I feel utterly disgusted with myself. It is so hard to put on my skin-tight capris and tank tops and get up in front of my spinning class and teach. I feel enormous. I can feel everything jiggling.... UGH. Again, trying not to panic. It's a day-to-day struggle.

Anyway, here's my workout plan for the next couple of weeks:

Monday: Lift 60 mins, spin 60 mins
Tuesday: Run 5 easy, 10 mins abs
Wednesday: Lift 60 mins, spin 60 mins
Thursday: Run 4 easy, 10 mins abs
Friday: Lift 45 mins, elliptical 30 mins
Saturday: Run 8 easy, 10 mins abs
Sunday: Lift 60 mins, Spin 60 mins, Possible Santa 5k at noon.

Monday 12/5: Lift 60 mins, spin 60 mins
Tuesday 12/6: Rest!
Wednesday 12/7: Lift 60 mins, spin 60 mins
Thursday 12/8: Run 6 easy, 10 mins abs
Friday 12/9: Lift 60 mins, run 3 easy
Saturday 12/10: Run 10 easy, 10 mins abs
Sunday 12/11: Lift 60 mins, spin 60 mins

I really hope I can start losing again. I am so sick of feeling this way!
