Frustrated....I think I am Up Again. Ugh!

Saturday, January 25, 2014

I am beyond frustrated at this moment. This blog will be short because I am headed out to the gym to do a Virtual 5k, then I have my WW weigh in this morning. I am frustrated because I just got on my home scale and am up 5 lbs! In one week! And, I exercised Over 7.5 hours this week!

Why I think I am up:
1) My food hasn't been great and I am floating between Simply Filling (no tracking) and Points (tracking). I think I slipped back into diet mode and am overeating.
2) Yesterday, that TOM started. I usually gain, but it's like 2 lbs.
3) I haven't slept very well...I think my body is fighting off the flu or a cold.

Despite that, I should be at least maintaining. I know I am not being very kind to myself here, but I am just frustrated. As it is, I can't eat gluten and I have to take a lactaid pill before any dairy. And, I have been very active all this week. My food wasn't great, but it wasn't horrible. I didn't binge. And for 5 lbs, I feel like I should have.


Okay. I am mad. But that isn't going to help me lose weight. What do I need to do?

1) Keep up the exercise
2) Try something different with the food. This week, I will eat mostly Simply Filling Power Foods, but track my calories. My goal is to be under 1600 each day.
3) Blog each night before I go to bed as to how my day went so I can learn what I am doing or not doing. I have a feeling I am missing something.

Thanks for listening....I just needed that vent. Now on to the 5k and to take the 5lb gain.

    Don't give up. Be extra kind to yourself. We beat ourselves up so much because of a little gain. Get right back up there and keep trying. You are so worth it and you're doing it!!!

    We all have draw backs, and our weight fluctuates, it will all even out. Stay calm and don't beat yourself up.

    TOM looks pretty disappointing on the scales. Be kind to yourself. Tweek what you can and most important keep persisting.

    Don't forget when you start a new exercise regimen your muscles hold water. Add that to your TOM and if you haven't been sleeping well that's another 2 pounds of water weight. Hang in there. emoticon

    The number one thing I have always been told is you cant out exercise a bad diet, if you think you are over eating your calorie range then your probably right. I have noticed if I dont track my calorie intake is sometimes double the amount I should have even if it was all healthy food. Everyday is a struggle, everyday a new adventure... I know its hard, but just keep your head up and keep trying, I absolutely wont weigh myself when I start my TOM because I gain anywhere between 2-4lbs so just wait until its over and I think the scale will show you a number you can be happy with. Have a great Saturday girlfriend!!
