Day 36 - Week 5 Weigh-In

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Week 5:
Weight: 363
lbs gained: 4.8
Cardio Min: 60 (1 walk run, 1 walk)
Strength Min: 35
Flexibility Min: 45 (stretching)

Ooookay, time to own up to this gain! It's not the end of the world. I was sick... and then I accidentally inhaled a peanut (I know right?) and had to go to the ER.... so things were a bit crazy. I let go of my tracking, I let go of my water, I let go of my sleep... and this is what happened. Some of this is sodium, most is not.

It's okay!!! I have the sleep, the water, and the eating back on track. I feel great today and have as much motivation as ever. So basically: let's see a 4-5 lb loss this week to get back to where I was before my gain. I can do this. I might not make it to my April 1 goal of 349.9, but I will be in the 350s and I will catch up to my projected goal line soon.

    I am never one track with my goal line either... I am about a month behind and I am okay with that. Losing .5 pounds a week is still losing weight and I love that I can be okay with that now. I stopped losing last month when I started backing the sourdough bread. I HAVE to have at least 2 slices a day and that is costing me some extra workout time! But it's soooooo good.

    So keep a positive look on it. You are back on track and that is a great progression. Didn't take too long to get you back to program, and that is progress in itself!

    Congratulations! Angela

    March has been a terrible month for me too! I've been struggling with terrible PMS hormones that are really messing with my weight.

    Let's hope the second half of March will be better on the scale for us!
