week 6 - Finally Caught up to me...
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
First of all I was floored by the response to my last blog. It was amazing to have a featured blog and so humbling. It feels really good to know your random ramblings may help people out as they go through their own journeys to find health and happiness. I truly love the community here and I am so proud to be a part of it!
now on to the ugly details of the week. Well after two weeks of not being able to get to the gym (no excuses just didn't make it a priority) and eating out pretty much every meal the last week. Add to that the super bowl and at least 3-4 nights of being out on the town with my guests that were visiting us in Hawaii. The inevitable happened, I gained weight . I am not shocked by this. I am not making excuses for it. I enjoyed my company made smart choices when I could but also maxed out every moment I got with friends I have known for over 20 years. On Monday it was back to the basics. Drank a gallon of water ate in range and burned 1500 calories in the gym. So I know the extra pounds I put on won't last long. I am actually thinking I am changing my weekly weigh-ins to Thursday's. As two weekends a month I travel for 8-14 hours back and forth between Hawaii and Houston. I always get super dehydrated when I fly so I think it just makes more sense. So hopefully by Thursday I will be back where I was last week and I will go from Thursday on. I guess I could have skipped this weigh in. but I think it is just as important to show that yes not everyone loses weight every week and that life happens and THAT IS OK! I am hoping in the next two weeks to break back into the 260's That would mean that I would have pretty much maintained this whole past year as I first breached the 260's last February. I was not able to break out of the 260's last year but I that is definitely the goal this year! Anyway on to the numbers!
Starting weight 380 lbs
week 4 weight 272.8 lbs
week 4 weight 275 lbs
Difference +2.2 lbs
Total weight lost 105 lbs
lbs to goal 25 lbs
So a 2.2 pound gain. I know most of it is water weight as my scale measures body composition and I am about 2% off where I should be with water. So we will revisit Thursday!! till then best believe I am back in the gym and drinking that water!
