Back on track…

Posted by: sgregg In: Uncategorized

Man, this weekend was rough.  I ate, and ate, and ate, and ate.  And it was mostly salty foods on top of that.  So, yes, my weight was up this morning and I’m expecting a gain for tomorrow.  I will be VERY surprised if I am lower than I was last week.  So, I just [...]

Weigh-In Tomorrow

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy

Weekly weigh-in tomorrow and I’m expecting a gain.  I have eaten under my calories today, but I’ve had a good bit of sodium and I think I should have drank more water.  I did get in my 64 oz. though!  I make myself get that at least per day.  Which is still very good for [...]

The weekend is always off-plan

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy| Life ramblings

I have steadily been going up in weight since the weekend got here.  It started Friday though.  I was on plan Thursday and Friday so I don’t know what the deal is there.  Anyway, I’m just hoping to have a loss by Tuesday.  My weekends always seem to be off-plan anyway.  That is ok by [...]

Going up and I’m tired

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy

The scale has went up the past 2 days….grrr!  So, I’m guessing it’s water retention from my muscle soreness and maybe my sodium intake from yesterday??  Yes, I’m still sore.  It’s not nearly as bad as it was yesterday, but it’s still there.  I’m thinking of attempting the dvd again today to work out the [...]

Man, I am tired.

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy

I do not know why I am so tired.  Well, I’m sure it has to do with getting up at 6am, but it used to not be this way before I started drinking more water and eating better.  I bet my body was just screwed up and couldn’t stay on a good clock since I [...]
