now... THAT is more like it!

Monday, June 10, 2013

I went tanning today. I still only get in for 8 mins, and I am really not seeing much of a difference in my skin color yet. This was my 4th session, so I am hoping that by the 12th, I will not be so dang white!

After tanning I went to the gym. It felt good to be back there after I flaked out last week. I did some cardio and weights. I realize how much I lost in my cardio just from taking a bit of time off. I need to step it up. After Mud on the Mountain, I hit a slump. I had been training my heart out for the event, then it came and went, and I sort of lost a sense of purpose. I wish my boss would get back to me and let me know if my day in September is approved for another mud race. I want to get registered! Plus I think that will give me more incentive to start hitting the training HARD!

Anyway, it felt good to be back at the gym. I felt good after my workout. I need to do it again soon! Like... maybe tomorrow since it is supposed to rain! I guess we will see what time I get up. I need to get to the gym in Altoona and get a PC Fit schedule. I need to see how that is going to work into my schedule.

I don't really have much else to talk about. I have noticed something strange.... when I take time off of exercising, my weight drops. Then when I start again, and it goes up. I mean it isn't a HUGE amount, maybe a pound, but it is interesting to me. My weight fluctuations intrigue me, which is part of the reason I weigh every day/ That and I think by weighing every day it helps keep me more accountable. I know what I am starting the day with.

I think that is all for now

    I know what is going on with the weight gain, it happens to me as well.

    When you exercise your muscles hold fluid to help them with the lubrication your body needs while exercising, so it is just water weight as your joints need the extra fluids to be more efficient.

    Have a wonder weekend ahead.

    How weird is that? I wonder why your weight does that?
    I love the gym now. It is good to feel that little tight, little tired very happy feeling!
    I will not be able to force myself to go if I did not simply LOVE it!
    Great that you do too.
    I am so hoping that you will be able to do another mud!

    Muscles temporarily retain water after a work-out for their repair. My weight always goes up the next day after a strength training/free-weights work-out.
