No more weigh ins

Sunday, August 11, 2013

At least for a few weeks. On each of the last two weigh ins I went up a pound. Who knows why. But I had been eating well, exercising a ton, feeling great. And the number made me feel not so great.

Let's go the next few weeks focusing on another number, 2000. That should be the maximum number of calories I consume per day. That should leave me with enough of a weekly deficit to lose some weight.

I am getting discouraged and feeling fat. Today I lost control and ate an entire package of biscuits. I feel crappy. I'm also on my period (finally) which is making me feel crappy for two reasons. First, I'm sore. Second, not having my period made me feel like I was doing well with exercising and losing weight. I'm sure my body eventually got used to the new exercise volume, but it still made me feel like I was failing when I saw my period had come back.

Don't get discouraged, Nicole. You didn't think this was going to be easy, did you? Focus on your calorie count, keep exercising, and don't worry about weighing in until after the triathlon.
