I'm annoyed. Not eating bad stuff and still up 3 POUNDS from the weekend! TOM is just days away, and I'm sore everywhere from squats and deep push-ups...but STILL can't make sense of a 3 pound gain?!?!?!?! ARGH! I'm going to have to resort to phase 1 SBD if it doesn't go back down by Friday!!!

anyway, today:

B - instant re-fried beans/cottage cheese/green salsa
L - omaha chicken breast and green peas
S - small fuji apple
D - DH picked up some more fresh broccoli, so I'm going to steam that and have it with probably brown rice and a protein source. Not sure which source, though.

going to the gym after work to do arms/shoulders and maybe a little treadmill. I'm frustrated about the water gain, but I am realizing this hasn't happened for weeks so I am attributing it to upcoming TOM and my muscles holding water. I just hate to see the scale go in the wrong direction :tant rum:

Your muscles are inflamed from the workouts. Check measurements and keep on keeping on. You are making me want to get the bikes out again too. We are having a stretch of rain though.

I have to be very careful and very vigilant. Sometimes (often!) that's a very hard thing to do and I go through periods where I'm unsuccessful reining that in.
This. I'm sure if I left the oil and salt off my veg it wouldn't be nearly as difficult though. Lol

I thought so, too...thanks CoolMom! It's actually quite amazing how sore I am from just push-up (using push-up handles, they are super intense) and body weight squats! DH and I do the squats at a rapid pace, though, back to back sets with only seconds in between. I just don't ever recall noticing a water gain from working out in the past.

The best thing you can do to help with post workout soreness and water retention, besides excellent nutrition, hydration, and giving yourself a rest day, is apple cider vinegar - because it's the best source of malic acid there is. It is seriously vile stuff, though, so I take it in capsule form whenever I up my workout to a new level. Alleviates a whole lot of pain.

Malic acid aids in the healing of sore muscles. Google it, seriously. It works.

I have a bottle in my fridge! you know, since I've been going to CSULA, though, I don't have as much time to work out. This is why I'm getting so sore, because I sometimes go a little longer between workouts when school is in session. Starting next week, it's 3 nights a week! workouts will have to be scaled down again ;(

I've decided on having a garden burger with light swiss and fresh steamed broccoli on the side. I think I'm going to use toasted sourdough with it - no gym because in all honesty we are both too tired! We haven't had a rest day in a while...tomorrow I'll do arms at home with my weights. AND, my legs are so sore from the squats now that it's ridiculous!!!

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for all the good thoughts and prayers for Danny and his family. They changed his meds today and he is doing a lot better . Yesterday he had gotten combative and was very difficult to deal with. He was also hallucinating, etc. That's why we were asked to come over earlier than normal. With this change of meds he was literally back to how he was last week. It's really a roller coaster ride going through this process.

Madriver
Hi and welcome to the check-in!

6 month hiatus and a 16 pound weight gain. I guess I'll never learn.

Anyway, doing the walk of shame and time to get serious again. I wish people would stop coming up to me and saying 'wow, you're still doing so well' or 'look at you, keeping it all off'---inside I'm screaming at them 'Are you blind? or are you just trying to get me to get back on the wagon because I'm not 'doing so well' or 'keeping it off' I really don't know where they are coming from. Anyway, today was on plan with my calories and I did 46 minutes of zumba and 34 minutes of wii fit plus.

*sigh*

Kaitie Hi and welcome to the check-in. Do you think you have toned up some during your weight loss? If so this may be the reason people haven't noticed your gain. You are back on plan and working on your goals, now. That's all that matters. Keep working and doing your best.
