Start Your Diet Today!

Feeling crafty!

Hey girls! I’ve been a busy little bee these past couple of days, which is funny because Friday was my first rest day, HA! XD Well I DID rest from exercise… but not much else. I have done some progress report weighing in the past two days, and my weight seems to mysteriously be up ~2-3 pounds. Seems sort of suspicious. I mean, I weighed in at 179.6 yesterday, then today I’m 178.4… It seems weird that I’m here when my starting weight this week was 176.8. Maybe the 176 was a fluke? I’m really not sure. With the amount of exercise I’ve been doing, I did not at all expect it to go UP. Maybe I wouldn’t have a huge loss, but gaining? Hmm… any thoughs? =/ It is a bit discouraging, but I still feel like the 3700 calories I burned in exercise Monday-Thursday will show up eventually, so I’m not completely deterred.

I’ve also had something to keep my mind off of the number on the scale. I’ve been getting into a bit of sewing and crafting. Now, I don’t like making trinkets or jewelry or any of that sort (I tried to get into it… but it bores me to death), but I have recently started teaching myself to sew (I suck) and I am determine to entirely make my very first cosplay costume. So, I’ll be needing to make an entire set of armor, a bow and arrows, a cape, and uh… well, that’s pretty much it lol. So far I have started on the bow and yesterday I absolutely PLOWED through making this cape, and I am not going to lie, I love it so much. Maybe I’m not the best costume-maker, but as the first serious piece of a costume that I have ever made, I think it is coming along beautifully, and I am quite proud!

So I think today I will get back to exercising and in between I’m going to try and finish my cape and maybe go shopping. Anybody know where I can get cheap scrap metal and expanding foam?

    I love sewing, but I’m still getting the hang of my machine! You should post a pic of your cape, I wanna see it! Gain is probably water retention from working your muscles or something.

    I can’t do any of it…jewelry, paint, sew. Good fir you for even trying…great that you succeeded. Yep I agree, water weight from muscle damage from working out. Keep it up cuz you know you’re right, you’ll see it on the scale soon.
