Start Your Diet Today!

My “Friend” TOM

Ugh! I got on the scale the other day and was horified to see I gained a few pounds.  No surprise there since I overate a bit over the weekend, but 4.5 lbs was a big shock!  Well then this morning I discovered that Tom had started.  Well no wonder I was eating some things I shouldn’t have and gained a few lbs.  First off I’m not sweating because I didn’t overeat on my calories I just didn’t get my fat, protein, carb ratio where I wanted it.  Second, that weight gain is probably pure water bloat.  Tom is just a fact of any woman’s life and I just need to deal with it the best I can.

On a brighter note, yesterday I did 12 min on the elliptical!  I keep trying to add a minute or two here and there and hope to be hitting 15 min in the months to come.  I also ate very well yesterday keeping it at 1200 calories and made it a higher protein day.  I have the same plans for today and in spite of Tom I’ll make it through.  I know once I get through this week I’ll lose those few lbs of water I gained and will hopefully post a nice loss in the weeks to come!

UPDATE:  I pushed myself to do 14.5 min on the elliptical.  Then I drug my son outside so we could walk around the block for 10 min.  All in all it was a pretty good day.  I found myself picking at some things i shouldn’t have (oh no!) but I tracked everything on my fitday and actually have some calories left, which I plan to devote to nothing but protein to balance out my fats and carbs for the day.

    Good morning, and good for you for sticking to it thorough the bad days when you’re not feeling so great!

    I’m new here and at blogging and enjoy reading updates as time permits when on. I see you’ve been with it a year next month–that’s fantastic!!

    Take it slow and those baby steps add up. I had to start from scratch recently after a heart procedure, and it’s pretty amazing how fast you actually build stamina and increase endurance. Elliptical is a tough machine and great exercise, so just keep it up and don’t be concerned with fluctuations.

    Have a great day and hope to see the loss post soon!
