Ok, first let me apologize for not having a picture of my weigh in this morning as I forgot to grab my camera. I have to say I’m in a bit of shock right now. Last week I weighed in at 219.8, which was down from my first weigh in. This morning I weighed in at 225.1. That’s a gain of nearly 6lbs!!! WTH? There is NO way I ate that much. I wasn’t being 100% good with my family being in and going out to eat, but I didn’t eat that badly.
Let’s look at the math for a bit. It takes 3500 calories excess to gain a pound. That means my excess for last week had to be:
There’s no way I ate that much. So, the only logical conclusion I can come to is I ate more salt than usual and am retaining A LOT of water.
I even walked 9 miles this week (Friday – Thursday). That’s more than the last two months!! *Sigh*
Ok, I’ve had my freak out. Time to put this behind me and work toward getting that scale back down.
How’s it going for y’all?
I have been very slack lately about posting, so I’m going to do one massive post for Wednesday through Friday.
Wednesday weigh in:
I weighed in at 214 on Wednesday morning. Thankfully the scale went back down a little bit. I haven’t been as diligent about my food and exercise as I should so I expected a gain, possibly. I had training at work, so I took the girls out to Antonio’s for lunch. It was a rest day, so I didn’t work out.
I had training today at work again. It was a bit more stressful this day because they just weren’t getting 3rd party. Most of the problem was they just didn’t really have a frame of reference so it was new for them. Christa and I took them to El Ranchero for lunch. I didn’t make it to my fit class because we stayed later for training than anticipated. However, I should have worked out when I got home, but I didn’t.
It was a rather slow day at work. I didn’t want to be there in the first place, so that probably made it even slower. Michelle and I went to Bullritos for lunch. I could eat Mexican food everyday and never get tired of it! Today was a scheduled rest day. I weighed myself that morning and weighed in at 212.4. I’m not counting that as an official weight until I weigh in again on Wednesday. If it’s 212.4 on Wednesday then I will.
All my food choices for the past three days:
