Motivated But Gaining

Posted by snuggles1968 on February 12th, 2013 |Filed Under General |

I’m finally getting over my cold/pneumonia and have been working out on a regular basis on my elliptical cross-trainer every other day for an hour or more on a moderate to high intensity level. I’ve also been shoveling snow twice a week. Just before I got sick, my weight had hit an all-time low of 217.4lbs but I wasn’t eating very well during that whole time. I’m still not eating a lot but have gained over 7lbs in the past two weeks. Not exactly sure what’s going on but this morning I weighed in at 224.6lbs which is very discouraging for me right now .

I know muscle weighs more than fat and my bum is most definitely firmer and my legs are shapelier but I don’t think I’ve gained 7lbs in muscle in just two weeks of working out.

I figure if I don’t see the scale going down again in a couple of weeks, I’m going to have to revisit my diet and see where I’m going wrong. Until then, I’ll just have to keep working out and staying active and continue watching what I eat.

In other news: I have a job interview this morning for a full-time job I’m hoping will result in a much better paycheck. My son also has the same interview so we may end up working together. Should be interesting.
