how did I possibly gain weight?

Friday, February 01, 2013

I worked out six days this past week with for 30-75 minutes each day, and I still managed to gain 2 pounds since I last weighed in! I've been occasionally eating over my calorie goal, but I'm only eating when I'm hungry, and almost exclusively healthy, vegan foods. Grr... I worked hard, and although I know it's more important that I feel good (and I do!), I'm still pissed that my hard work wasn't rewarded in the way I would have hoped.

This might be because I'm using a new scale that I just bought for my dorm room. Maybe it's calibrated differently from my one at home? Or it may be because I had a lot of soup from the dining halls these last few days. I'm sure it's loaded with sodium, so I might be retaining water. Or, the least likely of the options, maybe I gained some muscle? I'm sure not 2-pounds worth, though.

I'm going to have to focus very hard this next week on tracking everything I eat, eating very, very well, and doing more cardio. Yikes. Well, here goes!
