Stepped on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh-in. I had expected to either stay at the previous weight from last week (173.4) or gone down a little. I went UP! 177.4! I don't understand how either. I worked out at the gym 4 times this week (I still need to go today), I track my food meticulously and made sure to stay under my calorie count, I've been especially careful not to eat carbs - I just don't understand it.
How do I gain 4 lbs ? I know that muscle weighs more than fat - but then I would also see a concomitant drop in my fat percent which hasn't really budged off of 20% for the past few weeks! This is really frustrating. My goal is to get down to 160lbs - but I just don't know what else I can do. I walk 3 - 6 miles per day, I go to the gym and lift, I watch my food diligently (and on top of that I'm a vegan). When my hamstring starts to act nice I plan to reintroduce running to the mix (I've gone from a 25 mile per week runner to 0 because of my right hamstring). I just don't know what I'm doing wrong!
