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.
