You Really Can't Exercise Away a Bad Diet
Tuesday, April 19, 2016
Just back from a vacation in FL where I decided to throw caution to the wind in terms of eating and drinking. Actually didn't go crazy and still choose healthier foods on a regular basis.....BUT I ate more than usual and had a lot more alcohol. I mean, who doesn't want a glass of cold chardonnay sitting by the water?
I also got to the gym almost every day and the days I didn't go we took a long fast walk around the area. And we walked to the gym and to the pool and walked, walked, walked all over. Tracked everything I ate and even going waaaay over my goals the calories burned seemed to balance it out.
But I knew that it wasn't working because my clothes felt a bit more snug. My stomach was a a little "pouchy" and my face looked a little rounder. Being tall I can put on a few pounds and things will fit; not so much with skinny jeans.
I didn't weigh last week when I got home but got on the scale today and weight up 3 pounds. Gulp. My range is 140 - 144 and today I was 146 which is still below my goal weight and below the "OMG" 150. But no panic. I expected to see this number and I'm not doing anything dramatic or crazy.
It's just back to paying attention to what I eat and dos much I eat. Vacation was a blip in a years long total revamp of diet and now I'm back to way I choose to eat. Already feeling better with making healthy choices more times than not.
Anyone else have a blip? what are you doing to get back on track? You know we can do it!
