Status update Re: July goals

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Weight on my scale last week: 199.6
This week: 201.4

It really ticks me off to be out of Onederland... do I change my page? I first met and got into Onederland on 8/16/11... so heck, even with the plateau I had at least maintained that for almost a year.. so now what? do I erase that date and set the "new' date I get into Onederland? grr

I had done SOMETHING in weight training at least twice this week.. once it was a circuit of beginner bodyweight exercises from nerdfitness.com, and one other day this week it was picking up some dumbbells and doing some curls and tricep extentions. So not a crazy long ST session, but better than the nothing I had been doing..and certainly enough to at least satisfy those July goals.

Tracking.. most days on SP, and if nothing else on my paper tracker. so yeah, I tracked.

water, same deal.

Now the fitness minutes I've been weak on this past week..but its a monthly goal, not a weekly one.
I'll see if I can talk myself into something tonight, though I'm not sure... I mean... my son got up at 2:30 am this morning.. yeah... 2:30AM my husband got up with him (no idea how he's managing to function today).. so I got SOME sleep..but it didn't feel like it. I've been crabby and weepy, etc.. and the stupid scale isn't helping any.

But am I giving up? Nope. I have goals other than the scale... immediate goals (maybe being a coach for the GIRL program... and training for either the metric marathon --26.2K -- little over 16 mi or the metric 5K that same day)..and *definitely* training for the Cleveland Fall Classic half marathon in Nov. and looking ahead to 2013 I'm very strongly considering training for the full marathon.

-- at least considering it. We'll see how real life agrees with those plans.. but there ya go.

    Probably water weight gain from your muscles trying to repair themselves.

    I mean, think about it. Do you really think you ate an extra 6,300 calories this week?

    Keep your head up. Maybe start being more diligent about logging/tracking here and not just on paper if it will make you feel better about being more accountable.

    Its frustrating when the scale goes up and not down, but water weight fluctuates alot. Keep at it, you can do it =)

    i hope the salty foods this week did account for the gain. I put on 5.2lb overnight putting me at a weight I hadn't seen since last september on Monday this week. I'm sure it was the half a bag of doritos I had with dip for dinner on sunday but I know how depressing it is to see such a high number. Hopefully yours will be short lived like mine was. Getting in a good run and lots of water always helps :-) A big congrats on not giving up and making new and exciting plans!

    You haven't given up, so no, don't change your page. This could be just a one off, bad week. Keep plugging away and change things up a bit. You can do it! :)

    I totally understand how frustrating this is, and it's much easier for me to say than it will be for you to do, but ... brush yourself off and keep going. These scale blips happen for a thousand reasons, but you have a solid foundation and a solid path forward with this training (sounds like a cool race, btw!) and if you keep plugging along the scale WILL catch up. I know my body always freaks out a little when I change things up, but the ST is excellent for you and will rev up your metabolism. Keep truckin'!
