Weekly Weigh In

It's Monday again. My numbers seem to be all over the place and I don't get it. Last week, I was back down to 215 & I busted my ass at the gym this week. I concentrated hard on strength, but I did a lot of cardio, too. All week my number was hovering right around 217, but it always goes slightly up while I'm working hard and after a rest day it falls down to where it should be. Except this week. Grrrr...

I did indulge a bit yesterday for Mother's Day, but I was in complete control of my eating all day. I just ate things I wouldn't normally eat. I woke up and had a cup of coffee & a green smoothie (normal), we had brunch around 10 am and I had a few bites of an egg strata & half an omelette with crab & shrimp with some potatoes (not normal, but not a horrible choice).

The omelette filled me up, so I didn't eat much the rest of the day until dinner. We did Thai takeout and I had half a serving of Pad Thai and half a serving of Broccoli Chicken with white rice. Again, not what I would normall eat, but not out of control. Oh, I also had four crab wontons.

I dipped into the candy bowl yesterday and had three Starburst candies. Bleh ~ time to start over with my #7daychip. Boo.

So, anyway, my dinner was fairly salty and I woke up really really thirsty. I'm hoping that after a few days my weight catches up with my workouts again and I see some better results.

So, this morning's weight was 218.0. That's a 2.8 lb gain over last week. I'm feeling my body tighten back up and I can tell my waist is getting smaller and smaller. Out of curiousity I broke out the measuring tape again (Statistics reporting to resume June 1) and my waist is back to where it was in November before my injury, so I know I'm going in the right direction. I'm just frustrated as hell.......


  1. could be from all the sodium...could not be. the important part is that you see yourself getting smaller. :) that definitely means you're doing something right.

  2. I hate my scale! It is NOT my friend.

    Good Luck this week and hope your body get a clue!

  3. I hear ya on being frustrated by a gain! I gained this week too with little explanation. At least you have concrete proof that your body is changing! That means more than the scale... but I still get your frustration!
